Jaine Austen is looking forward to an indulgent spa getawayâ€”
until she learns itâ€™s more about deprivation than
relaxation. Between miniscule meals and a deadly brush with
fame, surviving this vacation will be no piece of cake...
When Jaineâ€™s friend Lance surprises her with a trip to The
Haven, an ĂĽber-luxe health spa on the California coast, she
and her feline pal Prozac are eager to hit the road and
bask in a week of pampering and pedicures. But upon their
arrival, she discovers that this oasis in the hills is
merely a fat farm in disguise, complete with celery-juice
cocktails, humiliating weigh-ins, and a zero-tolerance
position on carbs. And as she gets to know her fellow
inmates, she realizes 300-calorie dinners arenâ€™t the
craziest thing sheâ€™ll be dealing with.
Among her bulge-battling companions is Mallory Francis, a B-
list movie star with a knack for making frenemies with
everyone she meets. When sheâ€™s found strangled during a
seaweed wrap gone awry, Jaine is hard-pressed to think of
anyone who couldnâ€™t have done it. Perhaps it was Kendra,
Malloryâ€™s bitter sister-slash-personal assistant. Or maybe
Clint, a macho former co-star whose dirtiest secret is in
danger of being undressed in the drama queenâ€™s upcoming
memoir. Or was it The Havensâ€™ pretty young masseuse, driven
to commit a crime of passion when Mallory seduced her
aerobics instructor husband Sven?
With the suspects mounting faster than her hunger pangs,
Jaine doesnâ€™t know who to believe. And when her search for
truth, justice and contraband calories leads her straight
to the cold-blooded killer, it seems murder may be on the
menu once again...
