Wisecracking pen-for-hire Jaine Austen is back - and she's about to discover that working on the set of a Hollywood sitcom is no laughing matter....
Jaine still hasn't found a good man - or a way to keep all those sugary snacks from going straight to her hips. But - with a little help from her best friend Kandi - she's finally landed a gig as a sitcom writer! True, Muffy 'n Me (aka "Bewitched with Tits") isn't going to win any Emmys. And her office at Miracle Studios needs a little sprucing up, and a few dozen rat traps. But it sure beats writing boring brochures and bad resumes, so Jaine's not complaining. Until the plot thickens - with murder....
Jaine figures the trouble all started when Muffy 'n Me's hottest star, gorgeous Quinn Kirkland, seduced the head writer - whose husband also works on the show. But when Quinn's caught in bed with the barely-legal actress who plays his niece, things really heat up - and his many jealous girlfriends start to figure things out. . .
So when the no-good heartthrob drops dead after nibbling a poisoned doughnut, Jaine isn't terribly surprised. But who could have done it? A competitive co-star and a couple of scorned lovers top Jaine's list of suspects, but the police have zeroed in on her man-crazy pal Kandi. She fell hard for Quinn - and nearly fell apart when she learned of all his other women. Now Jaine has to figure out who finally stopped Quinn's cheatin' heart - before her best friend ends up behind bars...

I was a bit disappointed. The plot was so light and fluffy that there was hardly anything to it. The characters were predictable and stereotypical and the pacing was a bit slow. However, Jaine had a few funny moments and the mystery aspect was okay. I'll probably listen to the next one because I think there is some potential.

I’ve read several books in this series and I’ve enjoyed them all. I prefer the later books, but this one was well done too. This is the second book, and I see the author added the main character’s parents’ emails, which was something I missed in the first. They always provide a fun side story. The narrator is one of my favorites.
