The wisecracks and puns again fly fast and thick in Last Writes: A Jaine Austen Mystery, the sequel to Laura Levine's well-received debut, This Pen for Hire (Forecasts, March 25, 2002). Jaine lands a gig as a writer on the TV show ""Muffy 'n Me"" (aka ""Bewitched with Tits""), but when the sitcom's gorgeous male star and notorious ladies' man drops dead after eating a poisoned donut, Jaine's dismayed to discover that the chief suspect is her best friend Kandi.
