Publisher Description

HUMOR AND DANGER MELD PERFECTLY... 


"A  multifaceted  story...plenty  of  surprises...And  what  an  ending!"  – New York Journal of Books 


Interior Decorator Madison Night has modeled her life after a character in a Doris Day movie, but when a killer targets women dressed like  the bubbly actress, Madison's signature sixties style places her in the middle of a homicide investigation.  


The  local  detective  connects  the  new  crimes  to  a  twenty-year  old  cold  case,  and Madison's long-trusted contractor emerges as the leading suspect. As the body count piles up like a stack of plush pillows, Madison uncovers a Soviet spy, a campaign to destroy all Doris Day movies, and six minutes of film that will change her life forever. 


Praise for PILLOW STALK: 


"Make room for Vallere’s tremendously fun homage. Imbuing her story with plenty of mid-century modern decorating and fashion tips, not to mention a steady patter of Doris Day trivia, Vallere debuts a well-paced cozy series. Her disarmingly honest lead and two hunky sidekicks will appeal to all fashionistas and antiques types and have romance crossover appeal." –  Library Journal


"If you are looking for an unconventional mystery with a snarky, no-nonsense main character,  this  is it.  Madison  is  a  strong  leading lady  who  lands  in  lots  of  quirky situations.  Instead  of  clashing,  humor  and  danger  meld  perfectly,  and  here’s  a cliffhanger that will make your jaw drop. You’ll look forward to the second Mad for Mod mystery." – RT Book Reviews


"A charming modern tribute to Doris Day movies and the retro era of the 50s, including murders, escalating danger, romance... and a puppy!" – Linda O. Johnston, Author of the Pet Rescue Mysteries   


"Pillow Stalk is an intricately plotted and well-written book, I really  enjoyed the story. I can't imagine decorating a house in the style from Doris Day's movies but it makes fine reading." – Leanne Davis, 

Fresh Fiction


"It was fast and furious, had a lot of info, characters, suspects, and even a few tangled romances. I love mysteries where I can’t figure out who the real killer is until the end, and this was one of those. The novel was well written, moved at a smooth pace, and Madison’s character was a riot." – ChickLit  Plus


"This was a delightful read for me. I particularly enjoy and like Doris Day and was so surprised that 

Pillow Talk was mentioned in the book along with Doris Day. It's nice having a cute, cozy mystery to read, I look forward to more in the series!" – Lynn Demsky, bookreporter.com 


"If you love the Technicolor movies of Doris Day and Rock Hudson and watch Mad Men 

for fashion tips, author Diane Vallere has written a mystery that will appeal to the mid-

century modern heart." – Joanne Hamilton-Selway, ReaderToReader.com
