An ARC honest review for Kensington Books via NetGalley.

The 14th Jaine Austen mystery.

But my first taste of the wackily funny Jaine Austen and her fur ball cat Prozac.

And Prozac has won a coveted role for new ‘diet’ kitty cat commercial.  Only the creator of the new kitty diet food, after having a hissy fit where he threatens all present including Jaine, keels over dead!

The detectives make it known to Jaine that she was a suspect, and tell her not to leave town…only she is due to go to Hawaii with her parents.  She has to go on vacation.  She needs to find a the murderer.

This book is a laugh from start to finish.  With plenty of twists and turns, keeping you guessing right through to the end.  Well written and plotted.

This was my first in the Jaine Austen mysteries…but not the last!

5 Stars*****


The future is looking bright for freelance writer Jaine Austen. She’s signed up for a new job, she’s looking forward to a tropical vacation, and her cat Prozac is slated to star in a major commercial. But when the claws come out behind the scenes, Jaine worries that murder might be the only thing to meow about. . .

A writer’s life is far from glamorous. Still, Jaine’s new gig to write an ad campaign for Toiletmasters’ new line of self-flushing toilets comes with a few perks–including a date with the president’s dreamy nephew. And with a much-needed trip to Maui on the horizon, it seems life couldn’t get any better–until her cat Prozac is tapped to star in a Skinny Kitty commercial. But Jaine never would have guessed the world of cat food could be quite so catty. . .

Jaine is nervous that Prozac won’t be able to take direction, but the finicky furball ditches her diva behavior for the camera, eating and napping on cue like a seasoned pro. But just as Jaine begins dreaming of fame and fortune, Skinny Kitty’s inventor drops dead on the set. Everyone is a suspect–including Jaine. And she’ll have to get her paws on the truth before the killer takes a swipe at another victim. . .
