This Pen for HIre

If you're the one who loves to watch romantic comedy movies, then you'll love this new series by Laura Levine. In the first installment of the Jaine Austen cozy mystery series, This Pen for Hire, it dealt and started out with a murder to kick off this cozy. We were introduced to Jaine Austen, a freelance writer, who came across a letter to Stacy Lawrence from Howard Murdoch via the newspaper's personal ads. When he became a suspect for Stacy's murder, Jaine did some sleuthing to clear his name and find out who bludgeoned her to death with a Thigh Master, no less. Before the killer would be onto her, she would have to do it fast, before she would become a ghost writer no less.

This cozy had tons of witty humor to make you laugh all the way through the novel from start to finish and keeps you guessing whodunit at the end. I did care about Jaine and her writing career, when she helped Howard out. I also enjoyed getting to know her better, especially those emails from her parents, too. I liked the California location to kickstart the series. Ther was  a hint of romance and intrigue straight through to spice up this cozy mystery series. So bring some girlfriends, some hankies and have a few laughs on me. Great drama, good action and suspense, and plenty of intrigue all the way to the shocking ending.
