A sleuth who wields a copy-editing pen? Yeah, sign me up! I've been having a bit of a back and forth in my reading, something heavy, something light. I think it's a great way to keep reading. I don't feel too bogged down. 

To those who came by last week and commented, I have to apologize. I'm so behind on my commenting and hope to catch up over the weekend!

I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!
Synopsis: This comic mystery set in the elite zip codes of Manhattan will leave you breathless . . . literally. 
What could be more fun for a freelance copy editor than working on a juicy tell-all about one of Manhattan's most enigmatic society doyennes? But when Miranda "Rannie" Bookman arrives at Ret Sullivan's tony Upper East Side apartment, she finds more than the final draft of the reclusive author's manuscript waiting for her—there's also the half-naked body of Ret herself, tied to her bed and strangled with an Hermès scarf. 
Was this merely a case, as the police believe, of rough sex that got a little too rough? Or was Ret murdered because someone wanted to make absolutely sure she didn't meet her deadline? Once again, Rannie must prove that her mind is just as sharp as her Col-Erase blue pencils—or risk getting rubbed out too.
