Dressed to Kill - sounds like a book someone on the Stiletto Gang would write, doesn't it? Dressed to Kill is book #4 of The Tourist Trap mysteries with my amateur sleuth-slash-coffeehouse-bookstore owner, Jill Gardner.
I adore fashion, but like Jill, you're more likely to see me in a pair of cotton capris and a tank top, especially in the summer. I've given up the fight to be fashion forward, now, comfort is higher on my priority list, especially since I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, sitting. And my bottom is beginning to mold to the shape of my office chair.
So when Jill finally meets her new boyfriend's ex-wife, she's shocked at how much Sherry looks like she's running for Miss California rather than just running a small town clothing store. The girl knows her fashion, and she's not afraid to use it. Or wear it, even when South Cove is more California casual.
Which puts my yoga pants (which I LOVE) to shame.
So what about you? Are you comfortable in heels and pearls? Or would you rather be in flip flops and a cute charm necklace?
I think you know where I stand already. :)
BTW - if you like your books in paper format, you're in luck. Dressed to Kill is already available for your reading pleasure. But the Kindle version releases on June 23rd.
Dressed to Kill
Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More in the tucked-away town of South Cove, California—is not particularly thrilled to be portraying a twenties flapper for the dinner theater murder mystery. Though it is for charity…
Of course everyone is expecting a “dead” body at the dress rehearsal…but this one isn’t acting! It turns out the main suspect is the late actor’s conniving girlfriend Sherry…who also happens to be the ex-wife of Jill’s main squeeze. Sherry is definitely a master manipulator…but is she a killer? Jill may discover the truth only when the curtain comes up on the final act…and by then, it may be far too late.
