Women's Fiction Contemporary | Mystery Woman Sleuth
Smarmy personals ads. Daring declarations of love. Writer-
for-hire Jaine Austen has penned them all. But when one of
the love connections she made is broken up by murder,
Jaine finds herself freelancing free-of-charge—and
uncovering more than she bargained for…
No one seems to need her help more than geeky, gawky
Howard Murdoch. His request is simple enough: a letter
proclaiming his undying love for Stacy Lawrence, a
gorgeous aerobics instructor. The fact that he's never
actually met the woman gives Jaine pause—but she soon
overcomes her misgivings, warms up her computer, and
starts pitching woo on Howard's behalf. To Jaine's
surprise, the letter is a success—the unlikely Romeo lands
a date! But his triumph is, sadly, short-lived. On
Valentine's Day, Howard finds Stacy bludgeoned to death
with a Thigh Master—and is quickly named the prime suspect.
Upon hearing the news, Jaine is shocked. Sure, Howard's
awkward, eccentric, and a tiny bit odd. But a murderer?
That's hard to believe. Especially after a little
sleuthing turns up a whole bunch of people who harbored
less-than-loving feelings towards the svelte Stacy. But
Jaine had better wrangle her clues quickly, before a
crafty killer catches on—and puts a whole new spin on her
ghost writing career…
