A murderer outwitting a quirky flapper ghost? Seams unlikely!
Budding retro fashion designer and entrepreneur Amanda Tucker is thrilled about making costumes for Winter Garden High School’s production of Beauty and the Beast. But when the play’s director Sandra Kelly is poisoned, Amanda realizes there’s a murderer in their midst. She’s determined to keep herself and the students safe, so when her ghostly fashionista friend Max suggests they investigate, Amanda rolls up her sleeves and prepares to follow the deadly pattern…
This is the second book in the Ghostly Fashionista Mystery by Gayle Leeson.
Amanda Tucker, sewist and fashionista along with her ghostly counterpart Max (Maxine) from the 1920’s are back with a new mystery!
Amanda and her grandfather get suckered into providing outfits and sets for the new production of Beauty and the Beast. Not long after they are asked to assist the director of the play is found murdered.
I can’t really decide what is better: Max and her ability to adjust to the technology of the twentieth century or the whodunit. I was a little disappointed that the photographer from book one wasn’t featured as strongly as he was in the previous title. But the relationships in the building where Amanda has her business is what makes this series so great. This is definitely a series I want to continue to read., It is just so dang fun!
If you love a good cozy mystery, definitely check this one out.
