Business as usual for mid-century modern interior decorator Madison Night involves a rundown ranch restoration and a product endorsement for the local paint store. But when an investigation into a string of recent abductions turns up a murder vic, and evidence at the scene links the flirtatious Lt. Tex Allen to the crime, Madison’s priorities shift faster than she can say “Doris Day.”
Voluntary suspension keeps Tex off the case, and pesky reporters force him to live in his car. Madison’s own life is complicated by the return of her hunky handyman and her new demanding client. She immerses herself in routine, but suspects come out of the freshly-painted woodwork. When seemingly unrelated events lead back to the abductions, she exposes a secondary agenda, a copycat crime, and a vengeful plot to destroy someone she loves.
This book is #3 in a series, but it stands along well by itself. It is a fun cozy mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. The book had me guessing on ‘whodunit’ until the end. Recommended if you are looking for a nice, light read with a bit of substance. I am looking forward to getting the first 2!
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review.
