She expected the fashion industry to be ruthless. She wasn't prepared for it to turn deadly.
Ready to redesign her life, style expert Samantha Kidd accepts a job in her Pennsylvania hometown as a trend specialist.

And after the body disappears, she can't help but pull on the mystery's thread and unravel an entire wardrobe of suspects.
Supervising her deceased employer's vogue competition, Samantha tries to hem in a sexy shoe designer and countless ego-driven creatives to stitch together the clues. But when her own name appears on the police's suspect list, the sleuthing fashionista's days on the catwalk could be numbered.
Can Samantha put a killer in the spotlight before she's sewn up for a crime she didn't commit?

Great mystersy, and the shoes . . . .
Fantastically charming, funny and engaging and an absolutely delightful start to this series. It’s a well-plotted, fast-moving mystery with characters you will definitely want to know better. Samantha Kidd returns to her hometown thinking things will be quiet, less pressure, all that. Yeah, things are quiet all right, for about two minutes, until she finds her newboss dead in the elevator. She calls for help, but the paramedic who shows up takes the body away and leaves her trying to convince the police there really was a dead body, and then when the body is found she has to convince them she isn’t the killer. With that intro, she’s off - fearless, reckless, daring, and smart. The clues are there, although well hidden, and it’s great fun trying to find them before Samantha does. The plot moves smoothly and the fashion industry and shoe buying tidbits round it out nicely. And don’t forget the hot, hot, hot, sexy, sexy, sexy shoe designer. I definitely want to know him better. Designer Dirty Laundry is well-written, engaging and just a great read. Start the series and continue on. You’ll be glad you did.
