Don't Look Down by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Mayer

This was okay. Not the best I've read, not the worst. To me it dragged occasionally and I had to force myself to continue. Wanted an epilogue to the ending, I thought it was too abrupt. The pace picked up on the story toward the end and then it just stopped and that was it. I like some of her other stuff much better. It had pretty good dialogue banter that was enjoyable though.
The story is about Lucy Armstrong who is normally a director of animal commercials but has been pulled in to finish a movie that only has four days left of shooting (the previous director died). Her ex (Connor Nash) is the stunt director and her sister (Daisy) is on the crew as well. So she agrees to do it so she can spend time with her sister and niece (cute 5 year old kid named, Pepper, she was one of the best parts of the book). The movie is a joke because the star is a comedy actor named Bryce who is a wannabe action hero. Bryce brings in JT Wilder, Green Beret captain, to be his stunt double after his previous one quits. JT and Nash hate each other on sight (too many roosters in the coop) and both are trying to get Lucy's attention. Then JT gets contacted by the CIA because apparently the backer for this movie is using it as a cover for other illegal activities. They want him to investigate and report back. During all this, Pepper meets an alligator and names her Moot, Pepper develops a liking for Wonder Woman, and Everyone on the set is sleeping with someone else.
