Elizabeth Peters â Naked Once More Jacueline Kirby #4 Ebook

Naked Once More Jacueline Kirby #4She may be a bestselling author but ex librarian Jacueline Kirby's views on the publishing biz aren't fit to print In fact she's thinking of trading celebrity for serenity and a house far away from fiendish editors and demented fans when her agent whispers the only words that October 2018 This time on audio my new favorite of the Jacueline Kirby mysteries because of all the publishersauthors fun that Peters put in and her capitulation to her desire to depict Jacueline Kirby as a sassier alter ego for herself There are some dropped threads here and the solution is not entirely fair but JK is much kinder than she has been in previous books so I liked it better Read by Grace Conlin on Hoopla audio accessed through my public library2013 Jacueline Kirby has become a best selling author and she hopes to write a seuel to a missing author's big hit This is very funny although not as entertaining as Die for LoveI am trying to decide if the reason I like JK least of Elizabeth Peters's series heroines is that Jake is so self assured as to be annoying to me I suspect anyone who is so sure of herself to be a bully which may not be fair or because the characterization is so much thinner than in the Amelia books I liked JK better as a librarian than as an authorMissing Elizabeth Peters already Also worth noting JK does the Kindly Brontosaurus so recently promoted in Slate Naturally it gets her what she wants Kirby always wins
