In the world of PR, there’s only one crime worse than killing a deal–killing a client.

Aspiring actress and office temp Isobel Spice finds a warm welcome at Dove & Flight Public Relations, thanks to her old school friend Katrina Campbell. However, the atmosphere chills considerably when Isobel unwittingly serves an important client a deadly dose of poisoned coffee. Her stalwart temp agent, James Cooke, rushes to her aid, but balks when he learns that the victim was the fraternity brother who got him expelled from college. News that Dove & Flight is being acquired by an international conglomerate quickly supplants the murder as the hot topic of office gossip, but Isobel is convinced the two events are related. When all roads of inquiry lead back to Katrina, Isobel is forced to consider the possibility that her friend’s killer instincts go beyond public relations.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This book was really funny and entertaining. I love Isobel and how she always ends up saying or doing the wrong thing. I also like being surprised at the culprit, and this book didn’t let me down!


I totally enjoyed this book. It covered everything I enjoy- mystery, suspense, romance and humor. I would strongly recommend it to any of my friends or family who like to read.


An exciting yet mild mannered book. Several twists and turns. Easy and fast read.


Really enjoyed this one. Some really contradictory characters. The mystery of the deaths appear to be one thing but then things aren’t always what they seem.


Lightly frothy whodunnit is right on so many levels: the story moves quickly, the interplay between characters, truth, lies, doubt and friendship is natural and unaffected, and the emotion perfectly aligned with events.
