*A Murder for her Majesty*, by Beth Hilgartner?  (http://tinyurl.com/ydvms9 )

I think I donated our copy a few years ago, and the title wasn't 
particularly helpful, so I thought this was going to drive me mad! 
It was an Amazon order, luckily.  At least it can be eliminated if 
not the book you're looking for.
