DEATH OF A TROPHY WIFE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
There's just enough charm in this chick lit-type mystery to keep readers pushing on. Levine's characters are eccentric and funny and they make for a colorful and entertaining ride. The mystery isn't too complex, but a lot of name-dropping and fashionista warfare fill up the gaps.
Soon after trophy wife Bunny Cooper interrupts Jaine's brunch with her friend Lance, Bunny is killed and Lance is arrested. Jaine knows she must step in, if nothing else to save her closet from Lance's suddenly unemployed hands. Who was ticked off enough to want to see the diva dead? It appears there's a long list of suspects, from Jaine's husband Marv to the harassed personal maid. And when another body turns up, Jaine worries she could be next. (KENSINGTON, May, 304 pp., $22.00)
