From USA Today bestselling author Kelly Rey comes another laugh-out-loud Jamie Winters Mystery …
Legal secretary and reluctant sleuth Jamie Winters never claimed to have an exciting social life. So it's no surprise she's never heard of the local band Virtual Waste...that is until their drummer is murdered backstage at a show, and Jamie’s teenaged sidekick, Maizy, just happens to be there! Does the killer think she knows his identity? Is he coming after Maizy next? Jamie is determined to keep her friend safe, even if Maizy is determined to search the entire New Jersey Pine Barrens to track down the killer! While Jamie’s hot landlord, Curt, fills in with the band, Jamie wades through the victim’s disgruntled bandmates, a slew of discarded groupies, an ex-Marine bouncer, an unhinged Einstein lookalike, an emotionally overwrought agent, an ill-tempered giant, and even the Jersey Devil, to find the truth…before Maizy becomes the next victim.

A Playboy in Peril
A twisted murder mystery, a delightful cast of characters, a hint of romance, blended together to offer the reader a well written hysterically funny series. Read them all.
A Playboy in Peril

Jamie does it again!
Jamie Winters is back for another adventure. When her teenage side-kick Maisy coaxes her into investigating the murder of one of the members of her favorite band, they find themselves in peril once again. Turns out bad boy Nicky D had made lots of enemies, so this duo has their work cut out for them. Of course they have help from hunky uncle and landlord Curt and hilariously awkward Eunice. There are twists and turns around every corner in this story that keeps you guessing until the very end. It was very exciting. I highly recommend this book.
I have read every book in this series and have really enjoyed them all. You can definitely enjoy this story without having read the others, but it will be much more enjoyable if you read the other books in the series. I can’t wait to see how things develop between Jamie and Curt! Was he the one at the door?!
