Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A zinger debut introduces Cat Austen, of Ocean City, N.J., an entertainment writer who is the only sister of six brothers and the widowed mother of two small kids. On assignment interviewing shock-jock radio duo Jerry and Tom, Cat gets too closely involved in the pair's promotional gimmick. Called "The Perfect Murder," the stunt involves Jerry's playing a corpse at remote sites; after a series of clues are given, the first person to guess whodunit wins. But then Jerry is fatally shot the night he tries to tell Cat ``a shocker.'' As she works on the suddenly refocused story, Cat must run interference between her overprotective brothers (five of them are cops; the other is a priest) and widower Lt. Vic Cardenas, who is in charge of the case. She isn't surprised to learn that Jerry, who consciously offended everyone he could in his public life, did the same in private; she just has to figure out which of his targets shot him for it. Rubino's warm and feisty Cat, who is constantly fighting for independence from her large family, shines in this fast-moving first novel. (Sept.)

    Wonderful read.

    I just finished reading this book for the second time, which is a compliment in and of itself because I barely ever have time to read books for the first time. The plot was excellent and kept me guessing until the very end. I liked the main character Cat. The main male character Victor isn't the type of leading man I would normally enjoy, but he worked. Overall, the plot was excellent and the characters were interesting. I would recommend this book to my friends.

    While interviewing a DJ, he is killed

    Cat Austen is the entertainment writer for South Jersey magazine. She is to interview radio personalities Jerry Dudek and Tom Hopper. Their radio show, the Six A.M. Circus, was just that. They pulled a lot of gags and were planning a segment called 'The Perfect Murder.' Unfortunately before that could start, Jerry is killed. Right before he is killed, he tells Cat that he wants to give her some information. Cat has six brothers. Five are cops. All of them are very protective of her. Her husband was a State Patrol officer but was killed. Lieutenant Victor Cardenas is assigned to investigate the murder. He is very attracted to Cat. This really adds to the story. Cat has a friend, Ellice Watson, living with her. Ellice often helps with Cat's two children. Her character is terrific. Then there is Ritchie, Cat's boss. He is so excited that Cat was an eye witness to the murder. Cat begins looking into who could have killed Jerry. As she gets closer to the truth, she find herself and her family in danger. This is the first book I've read in this series. I really like the characters. Her brothers are so protective of her, but they want the best for her, too. I like the Jersey setting. The author appears to truly know this area. This is a fast read. It is a great cozy mystery. I recommend it to everyone.
