The future is looking bright for freelance writer Jaine Austen. She's signed up for a new job, she's looking forward to a tropical vacation, and her cat Prozac is slated to star in a major commercial. But when the claws come out behind the scenes, Jaine worries that murder might be the only thing to meow about. . .
A writer's life is far from glamorous. Still, Jaine's new gig to write an ad campaign for Toiletmasters' new line of self-flushing toilets comes with a few perks--including a date with the president's dreamy nephew. And with a much-needed trip to Maui on the horizon, it seems life couldn't get any better--until her cat Prozac is tapped to star in a Skinny Kitty commercial. But Jaine never would have guessed the world of cat food could be quite so catty. . .
Jaine is nervous that Prozac won't be able to take direction, but the finicky furball ditches her diva behavior for the camera, eating and napping on cue like a seasoned pro. But just as Jaine begins dreaming of fame and fortune, Skinny Kitty's inventor drops dead on the set. Everyone is a suspect--including Jaine. And she'll have to get her paws on the truth before the killer takes a swipe at another victim. . .

In Levine’s enjoyable 14th Jaine Austen mystery (after 2015’s Death by Tiara), the L.A. freelance writer has a chance to supplement her income through a star turn for her cat, Prozac, as the “before” kitty in a Skinny Kitty cat food commercial. Meanwhile, her own hot prospect is an ad campaign for her client Toiletmasters’ new self-flushing toilets. Phil Angelides, her Toiletmasters boss, introduces her to his gorgeous (single) nephew, who’s new in town and interested enough to ask her for a date. What could go wrong? Series fans should know by now that, even if Jaine’s meddling parents aren’t involved this time, someone—or something—will complicate her life. A murder is only the beginning of another wild misadventure with Jaine and Prozac. This outing will keep cozy readers amused and wondering what absurdity will happen next.
