Dead Weight by Lori Avocato

When Pauline Sokol goes undercover to investigate fraud at a weight loss clinic, resisting chocolate is her biggest dilemma . . . until she encounters a murder.
Pauline Sokol, ex-RN turned medical insurance–fraud investigator, finds herself embroiled in a scam at a weight loss clinic in the scenic New Mexico desert. As if going undercover in a heavyweight body suit isn’t bad enough, she’s not allowed to eat chocolate . . . and her roommate turns out to be a mysterious—and very hot—guy.
It seems to be an open-and-shut case, but Pauline isn’t the only undercover investigator on the scene. And when a reporter turns up dead, it’s up to Pauline to solve the case—with a little help from her handsome, but incorrigible, colleague, Jagger. Pauline knows the clock is ticking—and it’s not just counting down the minutes until she can eat chocolate again.

About the Author

After working thirteen years as a registered nurse, four of which she felt like "Hot Lips Houlihan" while serving in the United States Air Force, Lori Avocato picked up a book and said, "Hm. I can write one of these." Yeah right! Oh, she wrote several all right—seventeen to be exact—but getting them published proved to be another matter. Throughout the years, she realized it was not an easy task to write a book, much less a short, concise one. However, now as an award-winning author, Lori is multi-published with fifteen books currently sold in which her humor lends itself to her comedic voice, including the wildly popular Pauline Sokol Mysteries. She writes contemporary novels and often uses her military, medical, or a combination of both backgrounds in her plots. As an Air Force veteran, Lori belongs to RomVets and The Nathan Hale Chapter of Military Officers Association. As a writer, she belongs to The Author's Guild, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and Romance Writers of America along with several local chapters. Lori lives in the New England area, raising two teenage sons (Heaven help her!), and, of course, continues to write novels.
