actress Piper Donovan's life is at a standstill, but that is about to
change. Jillian Abernathy, director of the famed Elysium Spa in

soon finds herself embroiled in the murders and mystery at Elysium.
When not working on Jillian's wedding cake and going to tryouts for
acting jobs, Piper becomes more and more involved with the events at
the spa. Along with new friends at Elysium, Piper sets out to
discover who is attempting to kill Jillian and has killed two other
spa patrons as well. Is the father of the woman’s botched cosmetic

employee, whose job Jillian has been given, is holding a grudge and
Mary Jane Clark weaves an intriguing and complex tale geared toward
female readers. Aside from all the goings on at Elysium, subplots
involving Piper's potential romance with Jack, Jillian's relationship
with her sister, Sister Mary Noelle, and stepmother, Irene, as well
as the questions surrounding the death of their mother, Caryn.
Readers won't be able to stop turning the pages. With all the twists
and turns here I found myself unable to put down this riveting murder
