This week I reviewed Celebrity Status by Kassandra Lamb.

What’s the book about?

Kate Huntingdon is married to Skip Canfield, the man who has patiently courted her through the last two books in the series, and life is good. Skip’s private investigating agency, Canfield and Hernandez, may be doing a little too well, however. They’ve attracted their first celebrity client, a pop singer whose anonymous stalker has a twisted concept of love.

Before Skip realizes just how twisted, he involves first his psychotherapist wife and then their lawyer friend, Rob Franklin, in the case. Soon they are being hounded by paparazzi and someone is planting evidence to convince Skip that Kate and Rob are lovers. As they try to cope with this onslaught of unwanted attention and a stalker who will stop at nothing to remove the obstacles in his path, Kate and Skip struggle with the reality that you can’t always keep those you love from harm.

My Review

A nice, cosy mystery – 4 stars

This was the first Kassandra Lamb book I read, and even though it wasn’t the first one in the series, I felt that it worked well as a stand alone book. Celebrity status is a nice, cosy mystery, at the heart of which is a great example of a loving couple and their blended family. It is well written, with likeable characters and an interesting plot. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery, although I would have liked to be left guessing a little more. It’s quite a Christian book, with just a little sex and violence so I think it would be suitable for older teenagers as well as adults.

Partial to electricity and food, she studied psychology. Now retired from a career as a psychotherapist and college professor, she spends most of her time in an alternate universe in which her protagonist, Kate Huntington, is always the kind, generous and insightful person that Kass wishes she was herself.
