This Pen For Hire by Laura Levine

This is the first book in Laura Levine's Jaine Austen mysteries (yes, that is one of the running jokes throughout the books). Jaine is a freelance writer in Los Angeles, yet seems to always find herself in the middle of some kind of trouble and winds up being more of a freelance detective.

If you're looking for murder mysteries but want a bit of comic relief, look no further. Other titles include "Last Writes" and "Death By Pantyhose"

The books are written from Jaine's point of view and also focus on Jaine's life, This includes emails from her parents in Florida, lunch dates with her best friend, and drop-in visits from her needy neighbor, Lance.

If This Pen For Hire interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
