“The multiple suspects keep readers on the edge of their seats” in a hilarious Valentine’s Day mystery from the author of Death of a Neighborhood Witch (RT Book Reviews).
Love is in the air as freelance writer Jaine Austen begins a new job at the Dates of Joy matchmaking service . . .
When Jaine lands a job writing web copy and brochures for matchmaker Joy Amoroso, she’s excited for a chance to help the lovelorn—until she realizes Joy is a ruthless taskmaster who screams at her employees for the smallest infractions, pads her website with pictures of professional models posing as clients, and offers up convincing but empty promises of love. So it’s no surprise when the chiseling cupid turns up dead at a Valentine’s Day mixer. Now, finding the culprit may prove harder than spotting that elusive caramel praline in a box of chocolates . . .
