The Wrong Girl is the first novel in the Adventures of Bianca Dangereuse series, which is set in the sparkling world of 1920s Hollywood, and is a spin off of the Alafair Tucker Mysteries. Blanche Tucker longs to escape her drop-dead dulllikfe in tiny Boynton, Oklahoma Then dashing Graham Peyton roars into town. Posing as a film producer, Graham convinces the ambitious but name teenager to run away with him to a glamorous new life. Instead, Graham uses her as cruelly as a silent picture villain. Yet by luck and pluck, taking charge of her life, she makes it to Hollywood.
Six years later, Blanche has transformed into the celebrated Bianca LaBelle, the reclusive star of a series of adventure films, and Peyton’s remains are discovered on a Santa Monica beach. Is there a connection? With all the twists and turns of a 1920s melodrama, The Wrong Girl follows the daring exploits of a girl who chases her dream from the farm to old Hollywood, while showing just how risky – and rewarding – it can be to go off script.
The second installment in Bianca’s story, Valentino Will Die, was issued in February, 2021, and is available wherever books are sold. Read an excerpt of Valentino Will Die here
