Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The annual Historical Romance Writers of the World convention in New York City is calling to Jacqueline Kirby, a Nebraska librarian who desperately desires some excitement. But all is not love and kisses at this august gathering of starry-eyed eccentrics and sentimental scribes. As far as Jacqueline is concerned, the sudden "natural" death of a gossip columnist seems anything but. And when she's approached by a popular genre star who fears for her own life, the resourceful Ms. Kirby quickly goes back to work...as a sleuth. Because there's a sinister scenario being penned at this purple prose congregation. And when jealousy and passion are given free rein beyond the boundaries of the printed page, the result can be murder.

Synopsis:

Nebraska librarian Jacqueline Kirby heads to New York City for the annual convention of historical romance writers. Jacqueline finds herself a star player in a scenario of greed, jealousy, and murder when the sudden "natural" death of a gossip columnist seems anything but.
