Another great story of Det. Kate Sexton and her horny dog Bernie. I am in love with this series, it truly keeps me enthralled through every page. This one had me believing I knew the identity of crazy Myra, but boy was I wrong. I'm heading over to Amazon to pick up book 3 right now!

Hollywood Blood has the Alphabet Series in high gear as Kate and the gang attempt to solve a string of murders that surround a famous singer. Someone is seeking revenge, but will they obtain their goal, you’ll have to read to find out.

With MZ’s background in law enforcement, you feel like you’re walking with Detective Kate Sexton as she tracks the clues to find the bad guy. MZ has thrown in a good amount of humor with ex-Brit Natalie with her quirkiness and Mo the ex-pimp as the Sister Snoops tr

Better than Book 1!!

These books are getting better and better. Think Stephanie Plum but with a lot more sense but still with the crazy friends. Can't wait to read book 3 when our heroine moves in with her crazy English ex pump...and a transvestite and his/her grandmother. it's going to be a hoot!

Simply a Fantastic Read

I enjoyed the sometimes twisted characters as well as the adventuresome storyline that carries you along it's always enjoyable ride.
I am on a quest to read all the Hollywood Alphabet Series by Christmas as I have only just discovered these little jewels!
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!!

A really fun read. Funny, suspenseful, interesting characters. Kept me both laughing and guessing along the way. A heroic cop and dog and a villain worthy of criminal minds. Looking forward to more in the series.

I liked the first book in this series but wasn’t as impressed by this one.

It’s a serial killer novel, which automatically lowered its rating in my book. Every mystery writer seems to be driven to write at least one, and they as a whole become somewhat tedious after a while. They only vary in the manner the killer executes his or her victims or the level of gore the writer pours onto the page.

Kate Sexton’s friends, Natalie and Mo, were a bit of comic relief in that first book. They’re borderline

This is my second book of the series. I'm a fan! I already have waiting for me book 3 and 4. I love the main character, Kate Sexton, and her dog, Bernie. It's enjoyable and yet very easy reading. I like to continue reading about characters already introduced in Book 1. I'm assuming they'll be continued in book 3. There are several new characters introduced in this book. We'll see if they are in book 3. This book had murder, intrigue, and suspense. The author has you guessing as to the person ...more

I wanted to like this book, even with its obvious play on Sue Grafton's Alphabet books, and its attempt to create characters similar to Janet Evanovich's. But the switch in verb tenses was disconcerting from chapter to chapter. The author tried too hard to make the main character flip and glib. I'm not a prude, but there was way too much crudeness without any groundwork being laid for it. And the writers on Criminal Minds do the whole predator, cyber-crime, women turned into disciples and victim ...more

'Hollywood Blood' is the second book in what will be a great series. I loved the storyline. There are so many twists and turns that I even said 'holy shit' a couple of times, which is a good thing. The way the story played out was so full of humor, drama, suspense, thrilling scenes and a lot of action. The characters are an assortment of colorful personalities. Kate, as always, is a part of one mess after another. I love her characteristics. I can't wait to read the next book in this series, ...more

I finished this in a matter of hours. It was a very good book even though I enjoyed the first one better. The mystery was good as were the characters. My only complaint was wondering why the author didn't mention the character of Emily more. She was never discussed at all by the task force involved, just by the characters who are her parents. To me, this is an important piece of the equation that is never discussed and did she live or not?

A tale set in glamorous Hollywood, that involves bloodthirsty cults with a woman, Myra, who is in search of revenge and nothing is prohibited, not even murder!
This character is created in such a way that we feel an icy fear as we read all Myra is capable of doing.
A mystery as well as a well written psychological plot that keeps us reading to discover how it will all end.

I would have given it a 5 if the end had not left me hanging. It was fun to read and I especially liked Schullys getting what was coming to him. I am ready for the next book in the series.

Enjoyed book 2!

Twists and turns with some laughs. I thought more could have been done with her mom in this book. Seems like she was an afterthought.
Looking forward to reading the next book

Great fun Read

A really fun Read...very well as despicable characters abound. Pets bring great joy to their owners. But to a Canine Officer his or her dog is not only a good friend but a partner and a lifesaver as well. The story kindly reflects that....Well done!!!

Do read!

Kate and her crew kept me in stitches with the risque humor and the troubles they get into. This book and the others in the Hollywood series are a delight to read...and a good mystery too.

Good book

Great murder mystery with a cast of characters that are straight out of "Animal House". I loved the whole book and I am looking forward to reading another in this series. Great job, author!

Giggles Alert!!

Another successful ride with Kate and Company! Once again this author has delivered a delightful book with the cast of crazies tearing up Hollywood and solving the mysteries that came her way. Definitely recommend by this reader.

Twenty+ will enjoy this book.

It's not for my age group, don't know short hand text messaging FFF stuff. Never read or interested vampires or devil books, games. Best character in this story is Bernie the dog.

Good read

I found this series on book bub and have just recently started it. I like the characters and love that Kate has Bernie with her everywhere she goes. Comical yet suspenseful enough. I didn't know who the bad guy was until almost the end.

Kate Sexton, the lady cop that carries the action in Kelly's HOLLYWOOD series grows on you. The entire series is fabulous . Once you start the books, you have to go the next one.

Hollywood #2

Wow ! Lots of imagination went into this story. An unexpected twist at the end. Lots of action & really great characters, of course, a few little murders and a touch of unexpected romance. Definitely reading book #3...Hollywood Crazy...

Crazed Fan

An exciting thriller with a most devious killer with many identities. A gripping tale of evil and a heroine with little sense of fear whether dealing with her department superiors or maniacal killers. You won't want to put the book down until you finish the last page.

Again I disagree with all the 4 and 5 star reviews. Too many people to try and keep track of and I couldn't relate to all the computer stuff they were talking about so gave up. Not a book I would recommend to anyone.

Riveting edge of your seat storyline.

This novel has it all, a fast paced police thriller that will keep you up late wanting more.
This is the third mystery I've read by M.Z. Kelly it won't be the last.

Kate Sexton and her canine partner Bernie are back with another case to solve. All of the kooky characters are back with their funny takes on things. Hollywood Blood is better than the first book.
