Dead Famous Reviews

Anastasia Ryan - author of You Should Smile More and Not Bad for a Girl.

"A classic whodunnit mystery full of old Hollywood glam, unexpected surprises, and characters that are rough around the edges, but whose hearts of gold shine through the cracks. It kept me up way past my bedtime and I loved every minute of it!" 

Tahlia Calvisi - Writer 


"What a wild goddamn ride! I was expecting it to be a fluffy read — it’s set in Hollywood, after all — but it’s so much more than that. Fox has done an incredible job of unpacking Kat’s character (our flawed yet loveable leading lady), and digs deep to explore the nuance of interpersonal relationships in a way I didn’t expect. As for the twists? I dare you to pick them (you won’t). It’s also really bloody funny AND heartwarming. I cried (shhh). Entertaining, uplifting and very much recommended…I can’t wait for the next instalment." 

 Sarah P Good Reads

"I didn't want to put it down - finished it in less than two days (haven't done that with a book in a long time). Full of intrigue, twists, turns and mysteries, I was hanging on every word. It felt like I was right there with Kat as she investigated the secret life of Xander Hill. Brilliantly written - I highly recommend! Can't wait for the next one!"

Melissa S - Good Reads


A captivating read that immersed me in both old and new Hollywood. Made even better with a witty and endearing Kat at its heart. I like to guess ahead to solve the mysteries, but reading Dead Famous, just when I think to myself ‘yes I knew that!’ there’s another twist thrown into the mix to keep me on my toes! I can’t wait to escape with Kat on the next adventure! What a great read!"

"What fun Dead Famous is! I literally LOLed and gasped out loud reading this. If you're a fan of witty dialogue, loveable characters and a storyline with twists and a mystery to solve, this one is for you. A totally binge-able read, perfect for lovers of Sophie Kinsella and Emily Henry books. 

Ashley - Good Reads 


"This book had it all… Gossip, Old Hollywood and loveable old ladies who seem to know far more than they let on. I enjoyed it immensely, the author did an amazing job keeping Kat just likeable enough to keep reading, but enough of an as*hole that you could see that she really, really needed to be redeemed. I enjoyed this story immensely and can't wait to see what the author does next!" 

Jessica N - Good Reads 


"I loved everything about this book, once I started reading I couldn’t stop. It kept me guessing and wanting to know what was going to happen next. The main character, Katherine 'Kat' Alley, is funny and relatable, someone you could imagine as a friend in real life. A lot of books I read tend to be set in America or England and even though this is set mostly in LA, it was nice to see the Australian references come through. I will be on the lookout for more Kat Alley mysteries and I’m sure they will not disappoint."
