Despite New Year’s resolutions to avoid irritating houseguests and nerve-wracking cases, California P.I. Savannah Reid finds herself playing host to her assistant’s cranky cousin—in town for an unwanted makeover at a local spa. But when the spa’s renowned plastic surgeon goes missing, murder’s on the menu…
Voluptuous and proud of it, Savannah can’t understand why any woman would diet in pursuit of beauty, never mind go under the knife. She likes herself just fine the way she is. Too bad her houseguest isn’t as content. Abigail is livid that her cousin, Tammy, won her an extreme makeover at Emerge, San Carmelita’s new luxury spa.
There’s barely time to worry about Abigail when one of Emerge’s owners, renowned plastic surgeon Suzette DuBois, goes missing. As she broadens her search, Savannah begins to realize that some of the employees at this temple of perfection harbor serious inner flaws. And when one of the suspects turns up dead, Savannah’s had enough. She’d love nothing more than to wrap up this case and make friends with a nice strawberry margarita. But first, she’ll have to stitch up a killer who cuts to the bone…
“A well-constructed mystery with several surprising twists that keep the reader guessing till the end.”
