Free (Kindle DRM-free) The Actress by Elizabeth Sims [Humorous Legal Murder Mystery]

The Actress by Elizabeth Sims (SYKM, Wikipedia), a Lambda Literary Award-winning author and frequent contributor to Writer's Digest, is the 1st novel in her Rita Farmer series of humorous contemporary amateur sleuth murder mysteries starring the eponymous part-time actress slash aspiring law school student and single mother who puts her acting skills to unusual use, this installment involving a celebrity defense lawyer hiring her to coach his client to give a greater appearance of innocence at an upcoming murder trial, whereupon Rita finds herself getting involved with more than just the optics of yet another Hollywood tabloid case, free for a limited time courtesy of the author herself via her Spruce Park Press self-publishing imprint, which is reprinting it from its 2008 edition out from St. Martin's Press.

This has previously been offered free in 2016, and we've also received the 2nd-in-series as well: The Extra

Currently free (and DRM-free) @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK and probably everywhere else that Amazon sells worldwide, since this is being done via their KDP Select exclusive-or-else program)

Description
Aspiring actress and single mother Rita Farmer has gone from struggling to find work to downright desperate. If she doesn't land a paying job soon---horror movie, soap commercial, anything---she's afraid her ex-husband will use her dire financial straits to take away Petey, her cherished four-year-old son.

While she's charming the crowd at storytime at the L.A. public library, a celebrity defense attorney approaches her with an unusual job offer: So long as she's discreet, Rita can rake in a thousand dollars a day preparing his client for her appearance in court. Easy money? Hardly. His client, Eileen Tenaway, is not only a wealthy heiress and a queen of the tabloids but she's been charged with the murder of her own child. The attorney needs Rita to coach Eileen secretly to help her seem more sympathetic, more human. He needs the jury to believe not only her words but the subtle cues of body language, facial expressions, even vocal style.

Rita knows she can do it, but what she doesn't know is how determined she'll become to find out what really happened to Eileen's family---once her own life and Petey's life depend on it. The Actress, Elizabeth Sims's engrossing series debuting a spirited sleuth, delivers a fresh, behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood's high society at its lowest.
