Jaine Austen finds a romance writing gig and murder and mayhem soon follow

Death of a Gigolo (A Jaine Austen Mystery)

By: Laura Levine

Rating: 4 of 5

This is a long-running mystery series about a would-be writer who has to scrounge writing jobs to make a living.

In this entry in the series, Jaine has found a writing gig in a genre that is different that what she is used to. In addition to that, Jaine is getting back together with her ex-husband, much to the chagrin of her friends.

The writing gig is to co-write a romance novel with a very rich woman. It turns out that co-writing is a stretch of the term as Jaine seems to be writing it on her own.

In the midst of what has turned into a great job, a gigolo shows up and life turns upside down. The job isn’t so great anymore. When a murder happens, Jaine gets involved in solving it.

There are a few more surprises up this writer’s sleeve and I was surprised by the ending and am looking forward to her next book.
