Freelance writer Jaine Austen thought working for a knock-off reality show in the tropics would be paradise. But when she and her kitty Prozac find themselves trapped between a dimwitted leading man, catty contestants, and a cold-blooded murderer, the splashy gig becomes one deadly nightmare ...Jaine?s life has been a royal pain since she started penning dialogue for Some Day My Prince Will Come -a cheesy dating show that features bachelorettes competing for the heart of Spencer Dalworth VII, a very distant heir to the British throne. As if fending off golf ball-sized bugs on a sweltering island wasn?t tough enough, Jaine must test her patience against an irritable production crew and fierce contestants who will do anything to get their prince...But Jaine never expected murder to enter the script. When one of the finalists dies in a freak accident, it?s clear someone wanted the woman out of the race for good-and the police won?t allow a soul off the island until they seize the culprit. Terrified of existing another day without air conditioning and eager to return home, Jaine is throwing herself into the investigation. And she better pounce on clues quickly-or there won?t be any survivors left... OUTSTANDING PRAISE FOR LAURA LEVINE?S JAINE AUSTEN MYSTERIES MURDER HAS NINE LIVES "Enjoyable . . .

This story is about a woman named Jaine Austen, whose career has hit rock bottom. She thinks she has hit her big break when she is accepted to write dialogue for ‘Some Day My Prince Will Come’, a reality show about bachelorettes competing for the love of Spencer Dalworth VII, a British prince. But when Jaine gets to the island, she realizes it is terrible! She has to deal with awful food, a terribly hot room, and testing employees. The island is a death trap...literally! One of the bachelorettes dies in what seems to be an accident, so Jaine makes it her duty to investigate and find the real culprit.
This book is a great mystery wrapped in a comedy. You won’t be biting your nails from the suspense because you will be too busy laughing at all the perfectly placed sarcasm! I read this book in just two days and I loved every minute of it! I highly recommend this book and I rate it a 5/5! If you see this on the shelf, pick it up right away, you won’t regret it!

Another riotous romp with Jaine and the ever entertaining Prozac. Jaine is hired to write the dialogue for a reality show in what should be an island paradise. Mayhem ensues (as usual) with a clueless bachelor and the bachelorettes that are vying for his attention. Jaine receives a marriage proposal but not from the hunky guy of her dreams more like her worst nightmare. But our intrepid writer manages to solve the murder of one of the contestants and get away with a Dove Bar and an onion bagel!
