While ghostwriting a book of hostess tips for a Beverly Hills socialite, Jaine Austen, visiting the land of peroxide, fake breasts, and killer roots, gets up-close-and-personal with murder when her employer is found dead and her stepdaughter, a shy, insecure girl, stands accused of the crime.
A gal with a serious Ben & Jerry’s habit can’t afford to be too picky about employment opportunities. So when Beverly Hills socialite SueEllen Kingsley offers freelance writer Jaine Austen megabucks to ghostwrite a book of hostess tips, it’s time to sharpen the #2s.
But everything short circuits when Jaine finds SueEllen floating face down in her tub, fried by her own blow dryer. The primary suspect: Heidi, SueEllen’s stepdaughter, whose account of a mysterious blonde fleeing the scene is greeted with skepticism by Beverly Hills’ finest. Peroxided suspects abound, including a very private masseuse, a jealous nurse, a former game show hostess. . .even a closet blonde with a surprising secret. One of them is hiding a murderous heart behind pricey highlights, and Jaine’s out to expose the killer’s dark roots. Because blondes have enough fun without getting away with murder. . .
