A gal with a serious Ben & jerry's habit and credits including a tome entitled I Was Henry Kissinger's Sex Slave can't afford to be too picky about employment opportunities. So when Beverly Hills socialite Sue Ellen Kingsley offers Jaine megabucks to ghostwrite a book of hostess tips, it's time to sharpen the #2s. So what if Jaine has to take dictation from a rail-thin lady of leisure in a bubble bath? Pride doesn't feed the cat and the dubious side benefit of this particular job is an up-close, personal view of the amorous exploits of Hollywood's ladies-who-lunch. The only bright spot is sixteen-year-old Heidi, a girl after Jaine's own heart. Shy, overweight, and oppressed by her step-mother, Sue Ellen, Heidi could use a friend as much as Jaine could use an ally. But everything short circuits when Jaine finds Sue Ellen floating face down in her tub, fried by her own blow dryer. Peroxided suspects abound, including a very private masseuse, a jealous nurse, a former game show hostess...even a closet blonde with a surprising secret. One of them is hiding a murderous heart behind pricey highlights, and laine's out to expose the killer's dark roots.Because blondes have enough fun without getting away with murder...

If you like Janet Evanovich, you will like Laura Levine. The dialog is similar and her interaction through email with her parents is hilarious. The mystery in this book seemed secondary to the comedy. I can't wait to read the next in the series.

Supposed to be a mystery, but so much unnecessary description that I didn't get far enough to find it.
