A gal with a serious Ben & Jerry's habit can't afford to be too picky about employment opportunities. So when Beverly Hills socialite SueEllen Kingsley offers freelance writer Jaine Austen megabucks to ghostwrite a book of hostess tips, it's time to sharpen the #2s.
But everything short circuits when Jaine finds SueEllen floating face down in her tub, fried by her own blow dryer. The primary suspect: Heidi, SueEllen's stepdaughter, whose account of a mysterious blonde fleeing the scene is greeted with skepticism by Beverly Hills' finest. 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 Jaine's out to expose the killer's dark roots. Because blondes have enough fun without getting away with murder…

"Jaine Austen's amused take on life, love, sex and LA will delight readers." (Carolyn Hart)
"Levine's series gets stronger with each book. Her dialogue is realistic yet hilarious, and her vivid characters jump off the page." (Romantic Times)
"The identity of the real killer comes as [a] smart surprise." (Publishers Weekly)
Killer Blonde is the forth novel in the Jaine Austen Mystery series. Jaine is a great character. She's funny, clever and brave. The plot was entertaining and realistic and the pacing was fast with enough twists and turns to keep me turning the pages. I really enjoyed the emails between Jaine and her parents. I wish Jaine would dump Prozac and get a nice dog. I look forward to the next book.
