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, she’s not sure she’s the woman for the
job—especially when the catfights turn deadly…
Jaine has been hired by über-pushy stage mom Heather Van
Sant to write lyrics for her daughter Taylor’s song in the
talent competition for the Miss Teen Queen America pageant.
It’s different from anything Jaine has done before, but if
nothing else, she’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 Candace—the perfectly-
coiffed, whip-cracking pageant director—is making even
Jaine’s life miserable.
When Candace’s assistant Amy is found bludgeoned to death
with a silver tiara, there are more suspects than sequins
on a pageant gown—and Heather is first on the list. Taylor
begs Jaine to help clear her mom’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 stilettos…
