Silk Stalkings the third book in the Material Witness Mystery Series by Diane Vallere to review. In this mystery main character Poly (her name is actually Polyester Monroe!) gets roped into helping with the towns pageant. I loved the names in this series and the cats in the book Pins and Needles are such fitting names! When one of the towns most important citizens winds up dead just days before the pageant contestants are announced Poly finds herself busy with not only the pageant contestants and sewing but also defending her friend Charlie. Poly has to work smart and fast in this cozy mystery fans of the series are going to love. I also enjoyed the instructions on how to make a garment bag provided in the back of the book!
The time has come for San Ladrón, California’s annual Miss Tangorli beauty pageant, and Poly has agreed to use Material Girl’s inventory of shimmery silks to create embellished gowns fit for a crown. But when millionaire Harvey Halliwell—the man who revived the city’s citrus trade with his imported tangorli tree—is found dead days before the pageant contestants are announced, something sour takes over the town. To make matters worse, her friend, mechanic Charlie Brooks, is soon caught up in the crime, having been seen in the company of the case’s prime suspect. Now Poly’s on a mission to squeeze out the truth. But as she searches for a pattern, the killer seems intent on cutting up the evidence...
