When freelance writer Jaine Austen is surprised with an uber-luxe spa getaway, she and her feline pal Prozac are eager to hit the road and bask in a week of pampering and pedicures. But what she gets is a California fat farm in disguise, complete with celery-juice cocktails, humiliating weigh-ins, and a zero-tolerance position on carbs.
Among her bulge-battling companions is Mallory Francis, a B-list movie star with a knack for making frenemies. When she's found strangled during a seaweed wrap gone awry, Jaine is hard-pressed to think of anyone who couldn't have done it. While the suspects mount faster than her hunger pangs, Jaine's search for truth, justice and contraband calories leads her straight to a cold-blooded killer--where murder may be on the menu once again. . .

I really enjoyed this book. It's a mystery with a sense of humor. The lead character, Jaine Austen gets herself involved in a murder mystery at a health spa. And of course, she has her little, crazy cat with her, too.

This is the first one of her books that I read, and found it so enjoyable that I'm going to read the rest of the series.

The books are funny and easy to read.

I’m so glad I live alone. I kept up a running laugh-commentary every time Jaine did something stupid. I think I even may have snorted a couple of times.
