Description:

In a fashionably cozy short mystery novel, Paula Paul introduces a tenacious heroine who leaves big-city life behind and returns to picturesque Santa Fe, New Mexico—where murder lands on her doorstep.

Irene Seligman loves the warmth and beauty of her Southwest hometown, but only one thing could make her quit her prestigious job as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan to return there: the guilt applied by her demanding mother, Adelle. After Adelle’s most recent husband dies, leaving her with nothing, Irene decides to take a break from prosecuting criminals to move back to Santa Fe and open an upscale consignment store. With Irene’s determination and her mother’s eye for haute couture, they’re sure to make a killing.

But on the day of the grand opening, Irene discovers the body of one of Adelle’s friends in her storeroom. And although the intrigue causes business to boom, when someone else from Adelle’s social circle is murdered, Irene begins to suspect her mother might be in danger too. Ever the protective daughter, Irene investigates her mother’s friends, suspicious that they’re hiding more than designer clothes in their closets. But as she gets closer to uncovering some real skeletons, Irene might not live to regret coming home again.


My Thoughts:

In this book we follow Irene Seligman who moves back home to Santa Fe when her mother asks her to.  In her new store she finds a dead woman someone her mother new and finds herself under the police radar.  As the bodies pile up and it's up to Irene her mom Adelle and Irene's new worker Angel to figure out what is going on and how deep the mystery goes.

I enjoyed this book and had no idea where Ms. Paul was headed with the mystery.  I found myself digging deeper until the mystery was solved.  Can't wait to see what is next for Santa Fe in this remarkable cozy mystery!
