Corrie Locke and Veera Bankhead were entertainment lawyers working in the legal department of Ameripictures Film Studios. Their job was mundane, and they had fun solving petty crimes. With the possibility of losing their jobs, the friends toyed with the idea of opening their Private Investigator business. Corrie, who caught the investigative bug from her late father, got a call out of the blue from Holly. Holly’s friend, a retired UN ambassador, was missing from the luxurious Villa Sunset in Santa Barbara, and she needed help to find him. The two friends set off to solve the case, but they were in for a surprise. A mere problem of a missing person saw them charting dangerous territories in Gambling With Murder by Lida Sideris.
Gambling With Murder by Lida Sideris is a humorous and riveting novel. If you love light-hearted novels about amateur sleuths, this book is for you. The story was like an exposé about the hidden activities in elderly communities. I laughed a lot as the key characters had spunk and hilariously went about their duties. Lida is a descriptive storyteller who held my attention until the end. The plot, development, and writing style of the story were captivating. My favorite character was Corrie’s mother. She was calm, yet unpredictable! Michael was the perfect supporting cast, and Corrie was a deserving heroine. I kept imagining Veera’s height and bulk with the way Lida described her. Gambling With Murder is full of laughter and action. Please write more, Lida.
