Jaine Austen is looking forward to an indulgent spa getaway until she learns it is more about deprivation than relaxation. Between minuscule meals and a deadly brush with fame, surviving this vacation will be no piece of cake. When Jaine's friend Lance surprises her with a trip to The Haven, an uber-luxe health spa on the California coast, she and her feline pal Prozac are eager to hit the road and bask in a week of pampering and pedicures. But upon their arrival, she discovers that this oasis in the hills is merely a fat farm in disguise, complete with celery juice cocktails, humiliating weigh-ins, and a zero-tolerance position on carbs. And as she gets to know her fellow inmates, she realizes 300-calorie dinners are not the craziest thing she will be dealing with. Among her bulge battling companions is Mallory Francis, a B-list movie star with a knack for making frenemies with everyone she meets. When she is found strangled during a seaweed wrap gone awry, Jaine is hard-pressed to think of anyone

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.
