Love is in the air as freelance writer Jaine Austen begins
a new job at the Dates of Joy matchmaking service--but
between juggling her boss's demands, deflecting the
advances of an eccentric suitor, and tracking down a
calculating killer, she hardly has time to think about
romance. . .
When Jaine lands a job writing web copy and brochures for
matchmaker Joy Amoroso, she's excited for a chance to help
the lovelorn just in time for Valentine's Day--until she
realizes what "Dates of Joy" is really all about. Joy is a
ruthless taskmaster who screams at her employees for the
smallest infractions, pads her website with pictures of
professional models posing as clients, and offers up
convincing but empty promises of love in exchange for
inordinate sums of money. And woe betide anyone who lays a
finger on her heavily guarded stash of chocolates.
So it's no surprise when the chiseling cupid turns up dead
at a Valentine's Day mixer. Aghast to find herself on the
cops' suspect list, Jaine sets out to track down the
killer. Who could it be? Joy's harried assistants, whose
lives she made a living hell? Her younger lover? The
handsome hunk of a client with a secret in his past? Or the
furious Beverly Hills widow who forked over the last of her
savings for a Prince Charming who never materialized?
Joy left behind a slew of enemies struck by her deviant
arrows, so finding the culprit may prove harder than
spotting that elusive caramel praline in a box of
chocolates--and Jaine will have to flirt with danger to get
to the truth...
