When Jaine's friend surprises her with a trip to The Haven, a deluxe health spa on the California coast, she's eager to hit the road and bask in some serious pampering. It turns out that this oasis in the hills is a fat farm in disguise, complete with celery-juice cocktails, humiliating weigh-ins, and zero tolerance for carbs. As she gets to know her fellow inmates, she realizes 300-calorie dinners aren't the craziest thing she's dealing with.

There's Mallory Francis, a B-list movie star with a knack for making frenemies with everyone she meets. Kendra is Mallory's bitter sister and personal assistant. Clint is a macho former co-star whose dirtiest secret is in danger of being revealed in the drama queen's upcoming memoir. When Mallory is found strangled with sea kelp, there's no shortage of suspects.

Trapped in diet hell with a strangler on the loose, Jaine goes into action - and when her search for truth, justice and contraband calories leads her straight to the cold-blooded killer, it's very possible that murder may be on the menu once again.

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.
