Diamonds are a girl’s best exfoliator.
When naturopath and self-proclaimed chocoholic, Dr. Piper Meadows, hosts a spa night for the launch of the super-exfoliating diamond-dust Carat Cream, she never expects her guests to actually be "drop dead" gorgeous. But that's just what happens when celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jasmine dies after using a jar laced with poison. Suddenly Piper's products are under scrutiny...as is her eccentric, fun-loving Aunt Alfa, who has a history with police and poisonings. Add in an ornery psychic from the "other side," a pampered potbellied pig, and a handful of eclectic suspects, and Piper has her work cut out for her. With her more-delish-than-dark-chocolate-covered-almonds boyfriend, Tattoo Tex, along to help, Piper sets out to find the out the truth as she consults her PI flash cards to catch a killer intent on ridding the world of more than just dead skin cells.
