Jaine's curmudgeonly neighbour is murdered on Halloween night.
"When Jaine Austen's beloved cat Prozac unwittingly scares to death a parakeet belonging to the neighbourhood's resident curmudgeon, Jaine finds herself knee-deep in toil and trouble. The cantankerous Hollywood has-been once played Cryptessa Muldoon, television's fourth most famous monster mum. Now she spends her days making enemies with everyone on the block. So when the ornery D-lister is murdered with her own Do Not Trespass sign on Halloween night, the neighbourhood fills with relief - and possible culprits. With a killer on the loose, Jaine hardly has time to fall under the spell of her yummy new neighbour, Peter. As the prime suspect, she summons her sleuthing skills to clear her name and soon discovers that everyone has a few skeletons in their closets."-- Page [4] of cover.

easy reading... but somehow this one was slightly different - I don't remember Lance (the gay next door neighbour) every playing mean tricks on Jaine before.

I couldn't finish this book. I found the main character to be too stereotypical and predictable and thoroughly unlikable. It was like reading a Cathy cartoon.

Completely predictable, but it’s such a fun romp that I didn’t even mind. Love the ongoing e-mails between Jaine and her parents, detailing the war between Daddy-O and his neighbor Lydia (Stinky) Pinkus.
