Freelance writer Jaine Austen thought she knew what she
was getting herself into when she landed a gig working
behind the scenes at a teen beauty pageant. But between the
vicious stage moms, exacting judges, and trash-talking
teens, sheâ€™s not sure sheâ€™s the woman for the
jobâ€”especially when the catfights turn deadlyâ€¦
Jaine has been hired by ĂĽber-pushy stage mom Heather Van
Sant to write lyrics for her daughter Taylorâ€™s song in the
talent competition for the Miss Teen Queen America pageant.
Itâ€™s different from anything Jaine has done before, but if
nothing else, sheâ€™s looking forward to a free weekend in a
swanky hotel and a chance to see what really goes on
backstage at a beauty pageant. But the hotel is a dump, the
cattiness is out of control, and Candaceâ€”the perfectly-
coiffed, whip-cracking pageant directorâ€”is making even
Jaineâ€™s life miserable.
When Candaceâ€™s assistant Amy is found bludgeoned to death
with a silver tiara, there are more suspects than sequins
on a pageant gownâ€”and Heather is first on the list. Taylor
begs Jaine to help clear her momâ€™s name, but the search for
the killer hits a dead end as Jaine quickly realizes that
finding the culprit is going to be trickier than walking
the stage in stilettosâ€¦
