About the Author
Jill is a Communications Professor at George Brown College in Toronto, ON where she teaches Essay Writing and Business Communications in the Faculty of Hospitality. She has also taught writing at Seneca College, the University of Toronto, and the Tec de Monterrey (Torreon, Mexico). Jill has an MA in Cultural Studies and a BA in History.
Jill founded Danforth Whodunits – a book club for mystery lovers – in 2004. There was so much interest in a crime fiction book club that she founded a second mystery book club – Metro Mysteries – a year later. She is also a member of Crime Writers of Canada and of Sisters in Crime (Toronto Chapter).
When not talking dirty at her part time phone sex job, or singing cheesy cover tunes in generic suburban bars, fledgling private investigator Sasha Jackson is spending her days trying to figure out how ‘till death do us part’ applies to her jilted client.
Christine Arvisais was dumped by her gold plated fiancé days before mailing the wedding invitations. Four months later, he was shot in a Toronto ravine during his Saturday morning jog. Christine says she was wrapped in seaweed and bathing in mud when Gordon Hanes went to the mahogany paneled VIP room in the sky.
Then another former fiancé falls victim to another femme fatale and it appears Cupid’s bow is no match for the Grim Reaper’s scythe.
As Sasha continues her investigation, she uncovers a pattern of guys who skipped ‘I do’ and now never will. It seems a coincidence, until Sasha learns the real meaning of Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
With her dad driving her crazy via long distance, and her brother steeped in confusion about his own romantic comedy of Eros, Sasha must figure out who’s whacking would-be grooms before it becomes a case of four funerals and a wedding.
