  lkmuir | Dec 7, 2015 |
Jenny is the daughter of a very famous crime novelist who fancies herself as an amateur sleuth even though she is hopeless at solving mysteries herself. Then Jenny and her Mum are caught up in their rich uncle's Will reading party ( even though he is still alive) and discover that the riches gained through his mega - large chocolate company are not so sweet when the Uncle's son is found dead. As Jenny and her Mum tag along with the detective in charge of the case ( who has taken a shine to Jenny's Mum) another relative is killed by a poison fortune cookie and someone tries to kill Jenny by pushing a heavy pot plant off the balcony narrowly missing her head. Then there is carlos - the sexy bell boy who charms Jenny - what is he after? Does he know that it is Jenny, not her Mum, who is solving this complicated mystery - piece by piece?

It's not easy being related to a woman who's famous for murdering people. Don't get me wrong. Mom's not a real murderer. She's Madeline Jakes, the most famous mystery writer in the United States - maybe the world.

Jenny Jakes and her mother, a famous mystery writer, travel to San Antonio to see their cousin, Arnold Harmony, who's made his fortune in the chocolate business. Harmony, an eccentric millionaire, wants his will read publicly before he dies; since everyone wants a piece of the pie, this announcement causes quite a stir. When Harmony's son is murdered just before the reading, Jenny's mother decides to spring into action as a real-life detective. But Jenny's mother doesn't have a clue about solving a real crime, so it's up to Jenny to use her wits, not only to save her mother's reputation, but also to keep herself from being killed.

From the Paperback edition.
