What to expect
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.
There's a sinister scenario being penned at this purple prose congregation. And when jealousy and passion are released from the boundaries of the printed page, the result can be murder.

Listen to a sample
“Delicious stereotypes abound as each author tries to outdo the others. The narrator splendidly delivers the banter and wordplay of these wordsmiths. Peters is a natural for audio because conversation is central to her work. Conlin wonderfully portrays the array of characters.”
“A good addition to mystery collections.”
“Conlin reads in a rich, resonant and beautifully cadenced voice. Her timing is impeccable and she carries you effortlessly through the story. Light and enjoyable.”
