Publisher's Summary

After a dry spell, freelance writer Jaine Austen's life is suddenly full of romance. For one thing, she's reconnected with her ex - though her cat, Prozac, isn't happy about it. And Jaine's also got a new ghostwriting gig, working on a steamy novel called Fifty Shades of Turquoise.... 

Daisy Kincaid is in her 60s and heiress to a fortune. Now she wants to make a name for herself as a romance author...with a little help from Jaine, that is. As Jaine labors away on love scenes, she gets to know the wealthy woman's gentleman friend, her household staff, and her social circle - every one of whom is horrified when Daisy falls under the spell of a much younger stud named Tommy, a rude, crude lothario who's made himself a fixture in Daisy's Bel Air mansion. 

After Tommy and Daisy shock everyone by announcing their engagement, it doesn't take long for someone to stab him in the neck - with the solid gold Swiss Army knife that Daisy gave him as a gift. The challenging part is trying to narrow down the list of suspects. Jaine's going to have to put a bookmark in that love story and focus all her creative talent into untangling a tale of money and murder....

Great story different narrator

I love Amy McFadden as a narrator. She has a voice that makes you want to be her best friend. But after years of listening to Brittany Presley be Jaine, I was disappointed by the narrator change. No one says, “ Oh, Pro!” Quite like Brittany can.

Loved it!

Things are not always as they appear. Fun listen. I love a protagonist I can root for and relate to, who may have sumilar struggles.

So funny!

The story is pretty cheesy, as are most of the books in this series, but it's cleverly worded. This is a "well the storyline is okay, but it's so funny and cute that I don't care" kind of cozy mystery. The narrator is a little too "valley girl" for me, however. All in all, it's a fun listen!

great story

Why switch narrators now? This one was not as good. The story was great. I was glad to see less involvement of prozac in the story. Looking forward to the next 1.
