So when her friend Lance offers to treat her to brunch at the Four Seasons, Jaine leaps at the invite. They've barely made it through the menu when Lance spots his friend Bunny, who is the new trophy wife of mattress maven Marvin Cooper.When Bunny generously offers Jaine a gig writing Marv's new advertising campaign, Jaine accepts the job, and an invitation to her upcoming soire. But at the party Bunny cruelly rules the Cooper mansion and before the evening is over, someone poisons Bunny.The police arrest Lance, but Jaine knows his murderous urges end at her closet door. Setting out to clear his name, she soon discovers a list of suspects longer than Bunny's credit card bill.

Funny and entertaining

I am thrilled that I started to listen to these books. They are incredibly funny and entertaining. I enjoy all of Jaine and her father's hijinks. The mystery is well plotted and fast paced. Anyone who likes light mysteries will love this book.

Couldn't handle it...

Would you try another book from Laura Levine and/or Brittany Pressley?

I would consider buying a book by Laura Lavine in print. Not an audiobook anymore.

Has Death of a Trophy Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all.

How could the performance have been better?

I made it about a chapter in and I had to turn it off. I felt like I was in elementary school again being read to by my fourth grade teacher. The narration is awful.

Love this series!

If you could sum up Death of a Trophy Wife in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, interesting, surprising

What did you like best about this story?

I like that there was more Lance in this story. Although I don't love the narration for him, I enjoy his character - even when he frustrates me haha!!

What about Brittany Pressley’s performance did you like?

She always does a fantastic job. I love the sarcasm in her voice

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

These books always make me laugh out loud!! Outrageously funny
