Publisher's Summary

Wollie Shelley isn't happy about taking the job as a "social coach" at MediaRex, but the FBI makes her an offer she can't refuse. If she agrees to infiltrate the company, they'll guarantee that her schizophrenic brother will have a home at the federally subsidized halfway house he's come to love.

Wollie launches into teaching three foreign celebrities how to cope with the customs of Beverly Hills, improve their English, and become Oprah-ready. And when a coyote-chewed corpse appears in the MediaRex compound, Wollie realizes that her colleagues are concealing some serious secrets of their own.

Make another date with amateur sleuth Wollie Shelley in Dating Is Murder and Dead Ex.

Critic Reviews

"Kozak has a gift for creating characters that you care about and placing them in interesting situations. Her books might not exactly be realistic -- OK, they're pretty outlandish -- but they sure are a lot of fun to read." (Chicago Sun Times)
"Kozak engages the emotions - one minute she sends fissions of fear up your spine, and the next, she tickles your funny bone." (Library Journal)
"Kozak keeps the laughs and chills in bewitching balance." (Publisher's Weekly)

Wollie is back

I have bought all four books in this series and for the most part have enjoyed them. Kozak has done a very good job of creating likeable and entertaining characters. I enjoy the over the top unrealistic situations that Wollie gets into but this book was a bit frustrating. Her decision making skills and lack of a backbone had me shaking my head throughout the book. Her relationship with Simon is finally resolved, but his character is very questionable in this book. I found myself wishing that Doc and Ruby would rescue Wollie and save her from herself. I wish Kozak would have clued us in to what happened with Joey and her probate dispute from the last book. The only true drawback to this book is Kozak's long winded style of writing which I usually skipped. All in all this is an entertaining book and series would recommend it to anyone. This book has the feeling of being the last in the series. I would say it ended on a good note.
