Description
Reprinted Edition

"I'm crazy about Laura Levine's mystery series. Her books are so outrageously funny." --Joanne Fluke

When Jaine Austen's beloved cat Prozac unwittingly scares to death a parakeet belonging to the neighborhood's resident curmudgeon, Jaine finds herself knee-deep in toil and trouble. The cantankerous Hollywood has-been once played Cryptessa Muldoon, television's fourth most famous monster mom. Now she spends her days making enemies with everyone on the block. So when the ornery D-lister is murdered with her own Do Not Trespass sign on Halloween night, the neighborhood fills with relief--and possible culprits.

With a killer on the loose, Jaine hardly has time to fall under the spell of her yummy new neighbor, Peter. As the prime suspect, she summons her sleuthing skills to clear her name and soon discovers that everyone has a few skeletons in their closets. . .

"Levine's latest finds her at her witty and wacky best." --Kirkus Reviews

"Cozy fans will enjoy seeing how Jaine wiggles out of this one." --Publishers Weekly

        July 2, 2012
        In Levine’s whimsical 11th mystery featuring L.A. freelance writer Jaine Austen (after 2011’s Pampered to Death), our scatterbrained, sugar-addicted heroine; her demanding cat, Prozac; and nosy shoe salesman Lance Venable all fall head over heels for their new neighbor, Peter Connor. Unclear on Peter’s sexual preference, Jaine and Lance outdo each other trying to impress the handsome book editor. Peter’s arrival even brings the curmudgeonly neighborhood “witch,” forgotten TV actress Eleanor Jenkins, better known as Cryptessa Muldoon, out of her cluttered house. Already facing a suit in small claims court for the death of Cryptessa’s beloved parakeet, Van Helsing, Jaine falls even deeper into trouble—and under police suspicion—when the one-time star turns up on Halloween night stabbed to death with her own Do Not Trespass sign. Cozy fans will enjoy seeing how Jaine wiggles out of this one. Agent: Evan Marshall, the Evan Marshall Agency.
