Polyester Monroe, quirky amateur sleuth and proud owner of Material Girl, the most colorful fabric store in San Ladrón, California, unravels the threads of a new mystery in TULLE DEATH DO US PART…
When the historic Waverly House is transformed into a wedding venue, the town buzzes with excitement. An out-of-town couple with the loosest of local ties has adopted them as their own. But amidst the celebration, tragedy strikes when a guest is found dead in the chapel before the wedding march plays. Suspicion quickly falls on the bride. Poly's ex-boyfriend, the groom-to-be, needles Poly for help in solving the murder, but things take a complicated turn as the bride points the finger--at him.
Poly dives headfirst into a web of secrets and hidden agendas. From the eccentric wedding planner to the envious bridesmaids, she must untangle the knot of clues while navigating the chaos of wedding season at her fabric shop. As the investigation unfolds, Poly has a choice: her familiar past or a potential future with the town's most eligible bachelor. With puns as sharp as tailor's shears and her knack for finding trouble, Poly is determined to expose the real culprit before the bride's "I do" becomes the bride doing life.
Tulle Death Do Us Part is a humorous roller coaster ride filled with quirky characters, unexpected twists, and a patchwork of romantic notions. Cozy up under your favorite heirloom, quilt and enjoy this captivating fabric-filled adventure!
Love this series!
The Material Witness Mysteries is now one of my favorite series and Diane Vallere didn’t disappoint with this book. I honestly stayed up way to long to finish it!
What kept me up?? First, information related to the life and career ending injuries that can plague a prima ballerina made the story extremely interesting.
Second, the reoccurrence of specific characters from previous books in the series wove a tale of finding oneself through reflection and changes needed to move on in life.
Third, the characters have lots of depth, the story line was extremely interesting, and I honestly couldn’t wait to see what happened between Poly & Vaughn along with Clark & Charlie.
I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series!.

Fun addition to a fun series
What fun to meet up again with Polyester Monroe. A small business owner with an amazing talent for fabric and design and a unique personality that makes her a pretty good amateur sleuth. Even if she’s sometimes too curious for her own good and if she is at times oblivious to the danger she’s gotten herself into.
Author Diane Vallere has several series going at one time, and they are all great reads, because all of Vallere’s main characters have a couple of things in common: loyalty, dedication, never-ending quest for justice and most important to me as the reader, the ability to learn from their experiences and mistakes and to grow as the series all progress. Poly is one of those fascinating characters.
Poly has been in San Ladrón running her fabric story, Material Girl, for a while now. She becomes a little more settled there each day. When her aunt died and left the family fabric shop to her, she figured she’d need a couple of days to take care of business and then back to Hollywood she’d go. Now she can’t imagine living anywhere else.
When a secret celebrity customer requests a private fabric showing for her upcoming wedding, Poly has to dig deep to maintain that evolving growth and maturity – because the groom-to-be is none other than her ex-boyfriend. It’s stressful enough that they didn’t really part on the best of terms, but when a wedding guest is murdered that stress level goes way, way, way up. Accusations are flying, everyone is a suspect, and Poly is dragged into helping solve the crime.
Tulle Death Do Us Part is a fun, funny, exciting, suspenseful story, fast-paced, well written, strongly plotted, and populated with a quirky cast of characters you love – or love to hate. Poly jumps right in to try and find the murderer, and to keep her shop – and her life – safe. She’s got some tough choices to make and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the next book in this delightful series. Thanks to the author for providing an advance copy of Tulle Death Do Us Part as part of the review crew. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it without hesitation.
