Book #1 in the Jaine Austen Mystery series: When savvy scribe Jaine Austen is hired by nerdy Howard Murdoch to pen a love letter to gorgeous aerobics instructor Stacy Lawrence, she gets caught up in a murder investigation when Stacy is found beaten to death and Howard is accused of the crime.

My Review: This was such a fun book! I love the main character Jaine Austen. She's a hilarious Bridget Jones type, trying to solve a murder mystery for a client.

I read this first-in-series a few months ago and have forgotten some details. But it was a quick and fun read. It’s based on a rather sad and strange situation, where a man is in love, supposedly, with an aerobics instructor he’s never actually spoken to (though he’s taken her classes). Jaine Austen (creative spelling!) is a freelance writer and the man, Howard Murdoch, asks her to write a letter for him to Stacy, the aerobics instructor, asking for a date. I liked the little touch of Cyrano de Bergerac in this cozy!
I'm putting this back into bookstogive's Mystery/Thriller/Suspense VBB for someone else to enjoy (Round 22)

A good book. A little cliche. Our foster dog ate the book after we finished it. :(. Feel terrible.
