"The Vintage Clothing mysteries offer a compelling blend of suspense and style. In every book, the memorable characters, twisty plots, and delectable fashions are beyond fabulous. Highly recommended, especially for those who like a little couture with their crime."
- Cynthia Kuhn, Agatha award-winning author of the Lila Maclean Academic Mysteries and Styling Texts: Dress and Fashion in Literature
When Joanna Hayworth visits Bradley Stroden, a onetime protégé of legendary costume designer Edith Head, she expects to find closets bulging with drool-worthy gowns to stock her Portland, Oregon, vintage clothing store. Instead, she finds a corpse. With movie costumes as bait, Joanna investigates why Stroden was murdered. Could it be tied to the tell-all Hollywood memoir he was writing? Or to a midcentury film noir that was mysteriously yanked before it was released? Or to his "adoring" sister? To unravel these crimes, Joanna enlists the help of the Book Bunnies, an oddball group of middle school girls. Joanna's new marriage—and, possibly, her life itself—depend on figuring out who is acting and who is for real.
