The Trouble with Murder: A Hetty Carson Mystery by Vanessa A. Ryan
Hetty Carson was once one of the upperly mobile of the Los Angeles jet-set. Then her husband walked off with millions of embezzled funds and all of Hetty’s credibility. What began as a search for the ex has turned into a new career: detective.
The Trouble with Murder is book one of the Hetty Carson Mystery Series. The story opens with Hetty being interrogated by the police about the murder of a bar owner. The man was a potential customer for her side hustle of selling tequila mixers, a job she takes because her PI business was slow. Of course, Gerry Delaney’s murder is a tragedy, but Hetty figures it has nothing to do with her. Unfortunately, someone thinks it does, and now she has to investigate why if she wants to stay alive.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write about a female detective who was once married to a wealthy lawyer who skips out on her with all their money and is wanted for embezzling from his clients. She becomes a private detective to track him down and solves other crimes as well.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the characters work in the Garment District of Downtown, L.A., where I once worked as a fit model for a garment manufacturer. I also worked with my parents as a designer for their clothing company and sourced fabrics from companies in the Garment District. All the characters are fictitious.
