New Death on Valentine’s Day,
This review is from: Killing Cupid (Jaine Austen Mysteries) (Hardcover)
Always in need of a paycheck, Jaine Austen jumps when she gets a referral to Dates of Joy, the premier matchmaking service in Beverly Hills. Joy Amoroso, the owner, wants Jaine to write a new brochure and some copy for the website.
However, Joy is a bear to work for, scams her clients, and hordes her chocolate. And those are her good points. It’s hardly a surprise when Joy drops dead in the middle of her annual Valentine’s Day party. In fact, the list of suspects includes everyone who ever met Joy. Since Jaine is one of the suspects, she decides to jump in and find the real killer while dodging her new geriatric suitor, a man who is dating Jaine to get close to her cat, Prozac. But who actually killed Joy?
This is another fun, wild, and wacky adventure in Jaine’s murder solving life. I was laughing from start to finish and smiling when I wasn’t laughing. The humor is charming and fun as always, and the characters are as crazy as ever. I suspected who the killer might be early, but I wasn’t sure until just before Jaine figured it out herself.
There’s also a sub-plot involving Jaine’s parents in their retirement center in Florida. It may be my favorite one yet, and I was laughing at them like always.
If you enjoy light hearted comedy along with your dead bodies, this is definitely the series for you. Jump in anywhere and be prepared to laugh at Jaine’s wild antics.
