Halloween is just around the corner, and between cauldrons
of candy and a deliciously cute new neighbor, Jaine Austen
is struggling to resist her sweet tooth. But this year, her
once humdrum neighborhood seems to be handing out more
tricks than treats...
When her faithful feline Prozac unwittingly scares to death
a parakeet belonging to the neighborhood's resident
curmudgeon, Jaine finds herself knee-deep in toil and
trouble. The cantankerous Hollywood has-been once played the
part of Cryptessa Muldoon, television's fourth most famous
monster mom. Now a bitter, paranoid old dame, Cryptessa
spends her days making enemies with everyone on the street,
and accidental bird killer Jaine is no exception. So when
the ornery D-lister is murdered with her own "Do Not
Trespass" sign on Halloween night, the neighborhood fills
with relief - and possible culprits.
With a killer on the loose, Jaine hardly has time to fall
under the spell of her yummy new neighbor Peter. As the
prime suspect, she summons her sleuthing skills to clear her
name and soon discovers that everyone has a few skeletons in
their closets - and the motives for murder are endless.
Could it have been Cryptessa's next door neighbors, the
barracuda husband and wife realtors whose landscaping
Cryptessa had bulldozed? Or the seemingly sweet old lady
whose beloved dog was the object of Cryptessa's wrath? Or
perhaps the crotchety actress was done in by her own nephew
in a desperate attempt to get his hands on her money?
As the masks come off, Jaine's search for sweet justice
turns up more questions than answers. And just when she
thought nothing could be scarier than her run-in with a
tortuous Tummy Tamer, she closes in on the killer and learns
the true meaning of grave danger. . .
