The PMS Murder by Laura Levine is a fun read with a few out loud laughs an ending that actually surprised me I m not to easy to surpriseJaine Austen yes the joke is there again again is a free lance writer battling danishes with the help of her cat Prozac the book is full of arch jokes that sometimes work sometimes grate He Love Love Love this series uick fun read Janine
is funny andfunny and has a sassy attitude Prozac her cat rounds up this delightful read I m running out of superlatives to laud Laura Levine and her books The most useful thing I can blurt out is for you to read the latter There are several reasons for doing so The writing style is smart and funny The time between the start and the murder and between the murder and the investigation is well Versailles planned The hijinks of Prozac are well thought The other subplot with Jaine srospective work is eye catching and laugh out loud funny All of these add to much and Jaine Austen this time snatched or rather convicted her murderer from the jaws of defeat or cast iron alibi with urpose and less blind luck Than Usual Until Next Time usual Until next time will be soon I really liked this mystery The writing seems to just draw you into everything and the characters and situations all feel very real Weirdly enough I had read the first Jaine Austen mystery and now this one number 5 in the series and I have the last one written on my list to read I did have one small roblem and that was the book cover When you read the book she is always either eating or talking about her weight and how she needs to lose some but on the cover the girl ictured is very skinny and you can really tell that. On the frontlines of the battle of the bulge otherwise known as trying on bathing suits in the communal dressing room at Loehmann's freelance writer Jaine Austen makes a new friend a wannabe actress named Pam and gets a new job sprucing up Pam's bare bones resume Their feeling of connection is mutual so Pam invites Jaine to join The PMS Club–a women's support group that meets once a week over guacamole. It is not at all what Jaine looks like Fudging is fine but this is downright wrong IMO Anyway I liked how Jaine got facts from the different characters and they all seemed to have motive It kept you trying to figure out who did it I didn t know
at all until Jaine herself figured it out which was atall until Jaine herself figured it out which was at very last moment I really like this series and the character is hilarious but it s beginning to feel like each book is just a carbon copy of the one before it with the same jokes and everything Just a tweak in the mystery so it s not the same exact book as the one before and that s all The jokes were hilarious in the first book still funny in the second but by the 3rd 4th etc they are starting to wear me down Jaine s ersonal life needs to move forward in some way and she needs to come up with some witty jokes To Keep This Series From Getting Stale I Will Need keep this series from getting stale I will need take a break from this series before coming back to it I m sorry I couldn t rate this higher It s well written somewhat amusing with a sufficiently interesting mystery to be solved But it s just too cute for my taste For instance Janine freuently tells you the really smart alecky thing she said then tells you she really didn t say that and then tells you the not very interesting thing that she did say This gets old very uickly And I did say that The PMS Murder by Laura Levine is the 5th book in A Jaine Austen Mystery series Freelance writer Jaine Austen is asked to join a women s support group the PMS club only to see a member killed during one of their meetings Another funny and entertaining book especially following the antics of Jaine s arentsThe only let. And margaritas But joining the club roves to be a curse than a blessing for Jaine Though she is warned that Rochelle the hostess makes a guacamole to die for Jaine never takes the warning literally Until another PMS member Marybeth drops dead over a mouthful of the green stuff after confessing she is having an affair with Rochelle's husband While Rochelle and her husband are the obvious suspects everyo. Down was the flimsy motive for the murder Still it was a "Lot Of Fun With Plenty Of Laughs "of fun with lenty of laughs love these books Jaine is so real and funny The things that she gets herself into Fun mystery that she started investigating to help clear a new friend Loved that she had Prozac on a diet and she was THEN EATING IN THE BATHROOM SINCE SHE DIDN T eating in the bathroom since she didn t to eat in front of her Laura Levine has the best sense of humor and continues to make me laugh when reading her books The mysteries are good but the characters are just that characters Jaine s arents are hoots and How to Be Alone people you d love to know Another well done job Jaine Austen not the author a run of the mill freelance writer and in her spare time murder detective She always seems to be at the wronglace at the right time if there is such a thing and this time she is at a Racial Theories In Context party with her PMS not menstruation group She just joined and found some good friends One of them ate some nutty guacamole and the host of thearty said a nasty two word hrase right before the death of the member Jaine can t believe her new group could be capable of murder so she sets out on her own investigation With the latest man crush with her friend trying to ut Prozac on a diet and her dad on his latest gag about a certain reverend looking like a mob boss you will never know what to expect on the next Cigarette Kisses pageLaura has some very uirky humor in this book and i found myself chuckle uite a few times Seems every book gets better and you would think you d get annoyed by her dad acting like a crazyhead but really it is all so laughable and good clean humor I recommend all of Laura s books to anyone who likes books. Ne at that night's meeting is under suspicion including Jaine So instead of dishing dirt with The PMS Club Jaine has to dig up dirt on the surviving members And soon it becomes clear someone in this club thinks getting away with murder should be arivilege of membership Arrives at an unexpected and suitably scary ending Publishers Weekly Fluffy and humorous this is an enjoyable uick read Library Journal.
