When rapper Terrico James claimed to be "mightier than Jesus," nobody took him seriously...until someone did. Terrico's dead body ends up nailed to a cross and Chicago Detective Ryan Doherty is on the case. Was it a fringe religious sect making a statement? Or Terrico's protégé, Mandy Ross, a petulant pop star who sheds hearts like glitter in her path? With the help of his partner, Matt Di Santo, and the spirit of his dead partner, Jon, Ryan fights his way through cultural divides to find the murderer.

Catharine Lulling is ready to venture outside of her estate for her first real date with Ryan. But even her special abilities can’t save her when she reveals a secret she’s been hiding from him—one that could destroy their relationship for good.

L.A. and Chicago book signing parties were a huge success! We sold out of TOWN RED in less than two hours in Chicago, with many disappointed fans! If you didn't get your signed copy, you can always order one (or more) on my website: http://www.jennifermoss.com/townred

They are selling out all over, thanks to everyone!

TOWN RED makes a fantastic holiday gift--it's full of RED and GREEN! Read it to see...

NEXT PARTY: Fresno, October 20th, 4-6pm at EKLECTIC MUSE, 548 E. Olive. Live music, hors d'oeuvres, and red velvet sweets!

Town Red by Jennifer Moss

Here are several discussion topics for Book Clubs reading Town Red


1. How do you interpret the cover and how it relates to the story and its characters?

2. Have you ever worked in a dysfunctional workplace like Town Red Media? Do you think the environment/attitude was created from the top (management) down?

3. Do you think Catharine knows the extent of her abilities? Why or why not?

4. Di Santo says that Ryan changed since he met Catharine. Other than “wearing real shirts” how else did he change?

5. Discuss why you think Hank is a little hostile toward Ryan. Is it justifiable?

6. How are animals used in the story? Did you find the portrayal to be believable?

7. If you had thirty million dollars, what would be in your dream house?
