Jane Delaney does things her paying customers can't do, don't want to do, don't want to be seen doing, can't bring themselves to do, and/or don't want it to be known they'd paid someone to do. To dead people.
Life gets complicated for Jane and her Death Diva business when she's hired to liberate a gaudy mermaid brooch from the corpse during a wake—on behalf of the rightful owner, supposedly. Well, a girl's got to make a living, and this assignment pays better than scattering ashes, placing flowers on graves, or bawling her eyes out as a hired mourner. Unfortunately for Jane, someone else is just as eager to get his hands on that brooch, and he's even sneakier than she is, not to mention dangerously sexy.
Just when she thinks her biggest problem is grand theft mermaid, things take a murderous turn. But hey, when you've teamed up with a neurotic seven-pound poodle named Sexy Beast, how can you go wrong?
Book 1 in the Jane Delaney mystery series. Approximately 259 pages.

Fab and fun
I can't usually read mysteries because I have a limited memory and never enough time to read straight-through to recall who-done-what...but this story was a great read!! I was pleasantly entertained to the very last unexpected page. The quick witty dialogue made me laugh out loud in public : D The interesting plot twists had me changing my mind and pointing the guilty finger at a few different members of the memorable cast of hilarious characters...and I was so (happily) wrong! Fabulously funny! When is the next Jane Delaney book coming out?
That was THE MOST ENTERTAINING BOOK I have read in a long time...I stayed awake all night reading it. Thank you for your talents in writing and I bet you have a very delightful family. I am starting Book 2!
