I read Dressed to Confess by author Diane Vallere this week. This is out now and the third book in the Costume Shop Mystery series. This series is set in a Nevada town called Proper which is trying to find and stick with an identity to put itself on the map for tourists and townspeople alike.
A town festival spells all kinds of trouble for main character Margo, caught up in another murder mystery in her small town just doesn't sit right with her, when her Dad and his best friend start a conspiracy news paper it seems ever so harmless at first, but is it all tied to the most recent murder in town? This is a fun and slightly implausible story with some humorous highlights and a very complicated mystery. I was surprised with who the killer ended up being and I honestly did not figure it out before the big reveal.
It’s no secret around Proper City, Nevada, that the Sagebrush Festival, the town’s annual family-friendly event, is the place to be. This year’s theme of board games has everything from Conspiracy to Clue. Margo Tamblyn’s costume shop, Disguise DeLimit, has been tasked with providing costumes for the festival headliner, the Domino Divas. But on the night of the performance, one fallen Domino threatens to bring down the whole show when head dancer Ronnie Cass is found in her dressing room, unmasked, unprepared, and very, very dead. As the police investigate, Margo learns that Don Digby, her father's best friend, is the prime suspect, tied to the victim by an unsolved robbery connected to Proper City’s past. As conspiracies abound and theories are debunked, Margo seeks to unmask the real killer before her dad's buddy winds up in a costume made with prison stripes.
