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-chargeâ€”and
uncovering more than she bargained forâ€¦
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 pauseâ€”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 successâ€”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 Masterâ€”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 onâ€”and puts a whole new spin on her
ghost writing careerâ€¦
