The Look of Love
Piper Donovan accepts when the owner of Elysium, an exclusive spa and plastic surgery center, offers her an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to create a dazzling and unique wedding cake. The job also gives Piper the time and distance she needs to sort out her feelings for handsome FBI agent Jack Lombardi.
The ultra-luxurious spa caters to the rich and famous in need of a little “refreshing”—a nip here, a tuck there, a little Botox, a little detox. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, Elysium seems picture-perfect: the grounds, the staff, even the guests. But no sooner does Piper arrive than a guest is brutally murdered in one of the private bungalows. Someone, it seems, wants to make sure Elysium’s beautiful director, Jillian Abernathy, never gets to walk down the aisle. Piper soon discovers that beneath the glamorous surface of this idyllic oasis lies an ugly truth—and a cold-blooded plan for murder.
My Take: I found this book to be very readable. It is my first time reading Mary Jane Clark and I found her style to be very easy to get into. The chapters are short which is just perfect for me becauseI often find myself with only snippets of time to read.....I hate to put a book down mid chapter! I thought the author did a great job making the main character, Piper, to life and I liked the way she juggled the mystery and love interest story. During dreary winter days I really enjoyed reading about the setting of the mystery....a spa in California? Sign me up! I will pass on the murder bits though!
I am Mary Jane Clark's newest fan and am looking forward to picking up her other books as well. The Look of Love is actually the second in Clark's Piper Donovan series so I am excited to go back to the first and am anxiously awaiting the third installment. The Look of Love is a fast paced read filled with suspense and fun characters that will leave you guessing. Pick up your copy today on Amazon...
