In the 17th installment of the Jaine Austen series by bestselling author Laura Levine, Death of a Gigolo finds Jaine dating her ex and thinking she might have made a mistake breaking up with him. During that time, she also lands a job as a ghostwriter for Daisy Kincaid, a wealthy heiress who fancies herself as a writer. Unfortunately Daisy, to everyone’s horror, falls in love with a gold digger, named Tommy and sets a wedding date. Tommy is stabbed to death, and Jaine deems it her duty to find the murderer.

Anyone who has read novels in this series is ready to laugh; those who haven’t read novels by this fun author have really been missing out. Not only does she tell a good story, but she keeps her readers laughing while the suspense builds (yes, even though it’s funny, it is a good mystery). Levine does an excellent job of developing the characters: Jaine is the protagonist, and her cat, Prozac also plays a starring role. The supporting characters are believable and move the story along.

Since this is a cozy, there is no blatant violence, sex, or profanity, so the novel is perfect for all ages. All told, this is another fun one and is perfect to take on vacation. It’s fast moving and will keep readers on the edge while laughing at the same time.
