Description:

Summer in Paradise, Massachusetts, is usually an idyllic season?—but not this time. A Hollywood movie company has come to town, and brought with it a huge cast, crew, and a troubled star. Marisol Hinton is very beautiful, reasonably talented, and scared out of her wits that her estranged husband's jealousy might take a dangerous turn. When she becomes the subject of a death threat, Jesse and the rest of the Paradise police department go on high alert. 

And when Jesse witnesses a horrifying collision caused by a distracted teenage driver, the political repercussions of her arrest bring him into conflict with the local selectment, the DA, and some people with very deep pockets. There's murder in the air, and it's Jesse's reputation as an uncompromising defender of the law—and his life—on the line.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Jesse Stone as he tries to help a troubled teen stay out of trouble and investigate a crime from the water company along with dealing with a movie being made in Paradise which brings all sorts of issues to the small town.  When Marisol Hinton shows up in town she unknowingly brings her ex-husband determined to rid himself of the actress by taking her out in order to claim her will and all the money she owns along with it.  What he doesn't count on is Jesse Stone and people Jesse knows helping find Marisol's ex-husband.

This book is in typical Jesse format trying to keep peace while helping out where he can with whatever he can assist with.  It's fast moving chapters and the story really pulls you in wanting to see what Jesse will do next!  I really like this series and feel like the author is the same caliber as Robert Parker was.  He writes with the same style and grace that Parker did.  Can't wait to see what is next for Jesse Stone!
