Publisher's Summary

The Associated Press calls her "one of the most talented storytellers around". Now, New York Times best-selling author Mary Jane Clark brings listeners a delicious new mystery.

Piper Donovan accepts when the owner of Elysium, an exclusive spa and plastic-surgery center, offers her an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to create a dazzling and unique wedding cake. The job also gives Piper the time and distance she needs to sort out her feelings for handsome FBI agent Jack Lombardi.

The ultra-luxurious spa caters to the rich and famous in need of a little "refreshing" - a nip here, a tuck there, a little Botox, a little detox. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, Elysium seems picture-perfect: the grounds, the staff, even the guests. But no sooner does Piper arrive than a guest is brutally murdered in one of the private bungalows. Someone, it seems, wants to make sure Elysium's beautiful director, Jillian Abernathy, never gets to walk down the aisle. Piper soon discovers that beneath the glamorous surface of this idyllic oasis lies an ugly truth - and a cold-blooded plan for murder.

Bite into another Wedding Cake Mystery.

    It held my interest from start to finish.

    Story
    "A welcome surprise"
    What did you love best about The Look of Love?

    This book had so much action in it that I was hooked right away.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator threw me off a bit, though I'm not sure why. Her performance made me think this wasn't going to be a great book. But it was easy to get past this. The story won.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book was almost in the cozy category. Which I love, but there was always lots going on.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book. I highly recommend it and I will be looking for this author again.

    "Great performance by Therese Plummer, okay story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Didn't like how it was broken up into 100+ chapters. Kind of disruptive


    Has The Look of Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Kind of -the story kind of fell apart at the end


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Therese was just fantastic and the primary reason I bought this book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only if Therese Plummer was in it!


    Any additional comments?

    Do yourself a favor and buy The Last Nude instead for a great story AND an excellent performance

    71 year old avid reader using either my eyes or ears. I make earrings that I donate to shelters and while I work, I listen to wonderful books. I also keep in mind that you have to kiss frogs to find princes - time's too short to bother with losers.

    "Light and a bit kooky"

    I was looking for something light and easy and I found it in this. Sort of like Janet Evanovich. If you're looking for something serious, pass this by.
