Overview

When Judy Mills Price loses her job as a cookbook editor at a publishing house, she’s more than a little depressed. Her financial whiz husband, Hunter Dean Price III, won’t be much of a summer companion since he spends all his free time at The Oaks, the country club where he’s become a pink-and-green-plaid-panted golf junkie. He suggests she give the club a try, make new friends and network, and begrudgingly she does – only to be banned from the Men’s Grill, consigned to B-list tennis and stuck listening to the gossip of other golf widows.

Then Judy meets an unexpected ally in Claire Cox, an ardent feminist attorney who’s determined to bring changes to The Oaks and make it more female friendly – until she’s found clubbed to death with a pitching wedge on the fourth hole.

Hunky detective Tom Cunningham asks Judy to go undercover at The Oaks to investigate, and she’s only too happy to accept. Along the way, she finds herself evolving from a conventional wife into a daring woman, willing to risk her life to bring a killer to justice and a husband to his senses.

Editorial Reviews

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel (July 30, 1995) - Melissa Ruggieri
It's a sophisticated hub fueled by snob appeal -- the type of place where a phony smile and a handshake is equated with friendship. Women aren't permitted to eat in the men's dining room and members have names such as Duncan Tewksbury and Weezie Evans.
It's exactly the scene that a blunt, Jewish girl from New York would despise - and Judy Price does.
Miami Herald (July 30, 1995) - Margaria Fichtner
Judy Mills, the narrator of Jane Heller's sly, funny little tale of life, sex and murder among country-club snobs, is not having a good day.
At 39 and what ought to be the pinnacle of her career as a scrappy cookbook editor (who else would have thought up a garlic-is-good-for-you number titled So Your Breath Smells - You'll Live Longer!), Judy has been summoned into the office of her nightmare of a boss and fired. The publishing house is being restructured; food is not part of its new "mix."
People Magazine (July 24, 1995) - Pam Lambert
FIRED COOKBOOK EDITOR JUDY MILLS has a lot to fall back on -- great legs, a handsome husband who makes big bucks as a commodities trader, a restored Connecticut colonial and membership in The Oaks, the prestigious country club where she hopes to network her way into a new job.... But this breezy second novel shows that Heller, a Connecticut resident and former publishing executive, is also intimate with the territory. Knowing and naughty, her mystery is engaging enough to divert.
. - Publisher's Weekly
Heller entered Susan Isaacs's suburbia in her lively first novel, Cha Cha Cha. She's there again, taking well-aimed shots at affluent yuppiedom in this witty, well-plotted second effort. Judy Mills, Jewish princess and New York cookbook editor, is fired after her publishing house is acquired by another; at the same time, her aptly named WASP commodities-trader husband, Hunt Price, has become obsessed with golf and networking at The Oaks, an old-line Connecticut country club.

    Entertaining!

    This book was thoroughly entertaining. I love how it captured the ridiculousness of country clubs and WASP society. Anyone who loves a good mystery and has a sense of humor will enjoy this book.
