Book Summary

Meet Samantha Kidd.

Ex-buyer turned trend specialist turns amateur sleuth. She designed her future with couture precision, but finding the fashion director’s corpse on day one leaves her hanging by a thread. And when the killer fabricates evidence that puts the cops on her hemline, even a chance run-in with hot shoe designer Nick Taylor can’t keep her life from unravelling. She trades high fashion for dirty laundry and reveals a cast of designers out for blood: including Nick! Now her job, her love life, and her future are put on hold as she tries to outpace a diabolical designer before getting marked down for murder.

Book Review by Bree Herron

You never knew how deadly the fashion industry could be until you team up with this book! It was exciting, full of fashion and Samantha is pretty awesome.

Samantha, you are a dear. I loved her sense of fashion and design in this book. Yes, it is a mystery and well things certainly start off with a quick death, but the book holds some pretty cool style. It is like the author chose to wear her fanciest and stylish clothing while writing the book to give it a unique flare.Certainly, I don’t know if that happened but for now that’s my vision.

What I really loved about this book was the world of fashion was cut throat. I mean even for fiction it was amazingly real. You could easily see it being that backstabbing. But it had some hunky characters as well, that probably make the sassy gals worth it. And it leads to Samantha working her butt off to survive!

I had nail biting moments that kept me guessing what would come next. I really loved that, it was fancy and comical. The perfect blend of fashion and mystery. I am looking forward to her next adventure in this series.
