"The PMS Murder" By Laura Levine - Book Review

The PMS Murder (Jaine Austin, No 5)
Book Description:
On the frontlines of the battle of the bulge, otherwise known as trying on bathing suits in the communal dressing room at Loehmann's, freelance writer Jaine Austen makes a new friend--a wannabe actress named Pam--and gets a new job: sprucing up Pam's bare-bones resume. Their feeling of connection is mutual, so Pam invites Jaine to join The PMS Club-a women's support group that meets once a week over guacamole and margaritas.

But joining the club proves to be more a curse than a blessing for Jaine. Though she is warned that Rochelle, the hostess, makes a guacamole to die for, Jaine never takes the warning literally. Until another PMS member, Marybeth, drops dead over a mouthful of the green stuff after confessing she is having an affair with Rochelle's husband.

While Rochelle and her husband are the obvious suspects, everyone at that night's meeting is under suspicion, including Jaine. So, instead of dishing dirt with The PMS Club, Jaine has to dig up dirt on the surviving members. And soon it becomes clear: someone in this club thinks getting away with murder should be a privilege of membership...
This is the 5th book in the series.  I have read the other 4 and have loved them.  This is a funny cozy series.  There are a couple of things that sort of annoy me about these books.  A couple of times throughout the book she will mention the other book titles and say "available at a store near you."  At first it was cute but it is kind of annoying.  Annoying enough to stop reading?  No.  These books make you smile and laugh at her antics.
I have #6 already on my TBR so I am reading that next.  I will continue on the series.  They are a nice quick read.
Happy reading!
