This is the second in this series-the first Murdered by Words ( see my review here ) was really good and I was so happy that this series is to be continued! Any of Dianne Harman's books can be read as stand alone--but once you read one--you are going to want to read them all. I am sure I have said this before--the included recipes are to die for!
Kat Denham is an author of steamy romance novels--but after meeting up with her friend decides she is going to try to change genres to cozies. She is planning on basing it on her friend--then the unthinkable happens--a patient dies on the table and Kat has to try and clear both their names. Luckily Kat is dating the District Attorney who has a relative who is a PI.
Kat gets involved with the investigation--and her very large Rottweiler gets the person responsible for the death of her friends client cornered so the police can take that person away! There are lots of twists and turns in this one and some very happy moments as well!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Kat Denham, a popular author of steamy romance novels, has decided to write a book in a different genre. She has a friend who's a doctor of acupuncture, has just lost over one hundred pounds, is getting married in mid-life for the first time to a doctor, and seems like the perfect role model for the protagonist in Kat's soon-to-be-written book. But fate intervenes when Kat happens to be at the acupuncture clinic when a patient, Sandy Hendrick, mysteriously dies. Suddenly Kat is involved in a murder mystery she has to solve to save her reputation and that of her friend, Mitzi.
Who was the murderer? Was it Mitzi, Kat's acupuncturist? Or was it a doctor from the clinic who desperately wants Mitzi discredited, so he'll be named the Assistant Dean of Acupuncture? Then there's Sandy's philandering husband, Matt, and Mitzi's fiancee's ex-girlfriend. Or was it the clinic's receptionist, Rochelle? Will the sting Kat devises to help catch the murderer work? And what part does Kat's guard dog, Rudy, play?
