Most of Killing Cupid reads like the voice-over of a sitcom. The main character’s musings are hilarious and help readers picture what is happening. A murder always makes for a great mystery and the multiple suspects keep readers on the edge of their seats. However, the ending, though a surprise, seems abrupt and thrown together.
Jaine Austen has a new job as a writer for Dates of Joy, a matchmaking service run by Joy Amoroso. Once hired, she gets an insider’s look at a woman who fills her dating profiles with hired models, charges upwards of $25,000 to her clients and berates and belittles her employees. When she’s killed at her own Valentine’s Day singles mixer, the list of suspects is long and includes Jaine, Joy’s younger boy toy, disgruntled clients and employees and Joy’s Aunt Faith. Jaine works around the clock to clear her name and find the killer. (KENSINGTON, Jan., 272 pp., $25.00)
