The Look of Love (Piper Donovan Series #2) by Mary Jane Clark

The Associated Press calls her “one of the most talented storytellers around.” Now, New York Times bestselling author Mary Jane Clark brings readers a delicious new mystery.

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.

Mary Jane Clark has done it again. A great story, I could not put it down. If you are looking for Love, Mystery and Suspense this story has it all. A must read.

Even though the storyline is similar to other murder mystery novels, it is still a good read. The descriptions allow the reader to feel as if he/she is right there in the middle of the suspense. Also, there are several suspects to select from and you may not guess the identity until he/she is revealed. This was a nice weekend distraction from the reality of life.

Excellent light hearted murder mystery series. No gore or sensual sex scenes. When you want a break from the intense who dunits, this is a nice relaxing one day read. I recommend all the Piper Donovan series.

Great book! I really enjoyed reading this book, I couldn't put in down! I loved the suspense and I couldn't figure out who the killer was, so that made it all the more exciting! Loved it!

Chick Lit at its nonthreatening best, with murder, mystery, recipes and (perhaps) romance!

Each clan is responsible for keeping their information current to make it easy for new members to join. Pact clan leaders, feel free to tell everyone why they should join your pact clan!
