#MMBBR #Review A Disguise to Die For (Costume Shop Mystery #1) by Diane Vallere @dianevallere

25489451Someone is dressed to kill in the debut Costume Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness mysteries.
 
No sooner does former magician’s assistant Margo Tamblyn return home to Proper City, Nevada, to run Disguise DeLimit, the family-owned costume shop, than she gets her first big order. Wealthy nuisance Blitz Manners needs forty costumes for a detective-themed birthday bash. As for Blitz himself, his Sherlock Holmes is to-die-for—literally—when, in the middle of the festivities, Margo’s friend and party planner Ebony Welles is caught brandishing a bloody carving knife over a very dead Blitz.

For Margo, clearing Ebony’s name is anything but elementary, especially after Ebony flees town. Now Margo is left to play real-life detective in a town full of masked motives, cloaked secrets, and veiled vendettas. But as she soon learns, even a killer disguise can't hide a murderer in plain sight for long.

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!
 

Diane VallereI grew up reading both Trixie Belden mysteries and Vogue magazine and learned how to spot a counterfeiting ring and accessorize a wardrobe. Now I use that knowledge to dream up plots for the Style & Error Mystery Series, the Mad for Mod Mystery Series, and the Material Witness Cozy Series. I still love accessories, only now some of them are accessories to murder.





I adored this cozy mystery and I am SO excited that it is part of a series.  It was a delight because there were so many suspects (also in costumes) so I was constantly wondering who-done-it!  It was well plotted, had great characters and was a hoot to try to figure it all out!  I am looking forward to the next in the series and recommend the book to lovers of cozy mysteries. 4.5 stars
