I really enjoyed this book in the beginning It fizzled through the middle and the end tied up too quickly But it was still a fun book I liked the heroine, she wasn t annoyingly nosy and I liked that she stayed loyal through the book There were several men in this book including the cliche detective, but if you read the excerpt of the next book you find they may not all be in book 2 I will be reading book 2 to see if the series improves There was some heavy fashion talk and while I don t mi I really enjoyed this book in the beginning It fizzled through the middle and the end tied up too quickly But it was still a fun book I liked the heroine, she wasn t annoyingly nosy and I liked that she stayed loyal through the book There were several men in this book including the cliche detective, but if you read the excerpt of the next book you find they may not all be in book 2 I will be reading book 2 to see if the series improves There was some heavy fashion talk and while I don t mind the name dropping I m just a girl sitting home reading a cozy mystery I wouldn t know a insert name brand sweater if it fuzzed up out of my drier So I can say that I wish the author had taken some time to describe the wardrobe She obviously thought about many of the outfits and I think fashion was an important descriptor in the book I just couldn t get a mental image of the items since there was no description than brand sometimes I am certainly interested in some of the food mentioned Whatever the opposite of a fashionista is, that s me But, I enjoyed this fashion centric book, the descriptions of the clothes and shoes and accessories for both women and men who usually get short shrift in this department And the setting in San Francisco one of my favorite cities was a plus I had read this book years ago, and decided to re read it as I remembered the venue and characters as interesting enough for me to want to read the rest of the series. Meh Good characters, although the detective character seemed all over the place Weak plot the impetus for the murder seemed awfully weak to me Too many instances where I felt the author was trying to sell me clothing, although I don t mind a bit of fashion speak the Crimes of Fashion series being one of my favourites Still there were enough likeable things about this book that I ll read the second one and decide from there whether to continue with the series or not. The brand name dropping got old and the mystery seemed to take a back seat to the fashion It was a good book but not my favorite mystery I have read It is about a young women who works for a clothing store and some SUPER EXPENSIVE shoes are stolen from them The shoes later become a clue and the motive in the murder of the shoe thief The two store workers become suspects in the murder but they are the ones who find the real killer.

learns MarySue was murdered sometime after the charity event and the beautiful shoes are missing Detective Jack Wall suspects Rita and Dolce of doing whatever it takes to get the expensive shoes back even murder Rita is a likeable, quirky character Besides her love for fashion, she takes Kung Fu lessons and minored in Romanian so she could read about vampires Rita has recently moved from Ohio to San Francisco and for the last six months, her social calendar has been empty Now that she s involved in a murder investigation, she has three very different men that seem to be interested in her Dr Jonathan Rhodes, the ER doctor that treated her Nick Petrescu, a Romanian gymnastics teacher and the handsome Detective Wall Reading about Rita choosing her outfits and preparing for her dates with each man is a fun part of the book As a supporting character, sometimes Dolce is hard to figure out However, she is a generous boss and good friend to Rita, at one point offering her a very substantial discount on an outfit and treating her to a makeover at an exclusive salon so Rita will look her best for a special date.Readersknowledgeable about designer fashions would better appreciate the many conversations about various designer labels than I did However, the frequent references to fashion designer does makes sense in the context of Rita s job as a fashion consultant and sales associate at an upscale boutique, and I recognized enough of the names to remain interested in the story There is one blatant plot inconsistency where the author contradicts herself regarding the circumstances as to how Rita got from MarySue s house to the hospital There is also a weird scene at MarySue s funeral that I am not sure is supposed to be taken seriously or if it was written tongue in cheek Basically Rita and Dolce question MarySue s funeral attire as if they are at a society party and the woman had chosen the offensive outfit herself While the book isn t perfect, I enjoyed it, flaws and all Rita is an interesting character and it s great to be introduced to San Francisco through her eyes The book ends with a few recipes for food mentioned in the story, fashion tips, and even some dating rules, courtesy of Rita s Aunt Grace Shoe Done It is a fast paced book and a great start to a promising series that will appeal to those who enjoy Elaine Viets or Dorothy

didn t like the book was the amount of rambling Rita did to herself Her thought processes were too long and didn t need to be there I rated it low since I had to sift through the rambling It got to a point where you knew the rambles were coming and could skim over the entire paragraph The rambles were about the clothes somebody was wearing, what she wanted to wear, or how she didn t like something It was unnecessarily long and happened too frequently This gets a 2 star or 2.5 star rating It wasn t a bad mystery, but there were just so many cliche s that at times I found myself rolling my eyes
