The Last Resort
"Clever, smart, and resourceful, Kate is an ideal amateur detective."
—Silk Stalkings, Nicholas and Thompson
Kate Jasper, Marin County, California's own, organically grown, amateur sleuth is back in this second mystery in the series. ("Kate is quick and clever and fun to read about." —Sue Feder's Magical Mystery Tour.) The good news in The Last Resort is that Kate has finally divorced her husband, Craig, and is enjoying a platonic friendship with her now ex-husband, happy in her own new love life. The bad news is that Craig has been dating his divorce attorney, Suzanne Sorenson. Suzanne is everything Kate isn't: tall, blond, elegant, ambitious, and ruthless. And now, Suzanne is dead as well, strangled on her late night jog while vacationing with Craig at a vegetarian health resort. Craig is suspected of Suzanne's murder by the local police and begs Kate to help exonerate him. Kate reluctantly agrees and checks herself into Spa Sante to investigate. Raw vegetables were never so dangerous.
"Kate Jasper is one of the most appealing characters I've met in recent mystery fiction."
—Marilyn Wallace, editor of the Sisters in Crime series
