A bartender-turned-process server chases after a missing suspect in this “fun, frantic, sexy murder mystery” (Lisa Jackson, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of You Betrayed Me).

Jane Kelly is through following men. She left Southern California for the murky quaintness of Lake Chinook, Oregon, apparently so she could trade her bartending skills for much more glamorous work process serving. And the boyfriend, of course, is long gone. But things have been looking a little brighter lately. Her hobby doing PI work is kind of fun, especially when she lands a real case—that pays real money.

But the case is about Bobby Reynolds, best friend of Tim Murphy, the only guy she’s never gotten over. Everyone except Tim believed Bobby murdered his young family—isn't that why he vanished? Now Tim’s coming home and Jane’s on her way to talk to Bobby’s father. Looks like Jane’ll be trailing men after all—this time with a tape recorder and a camera. To top it off, she’s being trailed herself, by a homely pug named Binky, left to her by a distant relative. With a job she’s learning as she goes along and her ex back in town, Jane’s life just went from stress-free to completely stressed-out. And then there's the dead body…

“Jane will win readers’ hearts as she tries to sort out a crime, her love life, and the aspirations of a pug named Binky.”—Carolyn Hart, New York Times-bestselling author of Walking on My Grave

“Funny sex scenes, good drinks and a likable dog lift Bush’s first Jane Kelly mystery.”—Publishers Weekly
