The national bestselling author presents a high society murder mystery...

At Snapdragon, a high-end designer consignment shop, Helen is at the beck and call of snobby- yet frugal-customers. That alone is a deadly combination, especially with Chrissy, a drool-worthy fashionista who walks in with a purse to sell, and ends up screaming at her husband and another customer.

Helen is used to dealing with snobby women, controlling husbands, and fashionable politicians. But she's about to have to handle a brand new type of unsatisfied customer-a murderer. Chrissy is found dead in Snapdragon's dressing room, with the hand-painted scarf Helen was just holding tied around her neck. And Helen goes from being low on society's totem pole to high on the police's suspect list.

The beginning was promising but half way into the story it lost it's momentum. The ending was lame.

The beginning was alright, but as the story progresses, it gets REALLY boring. I was actually expecting an intense murder mystery, forensic stuff, but it just mostly talks about the main character's irrelevant problems, almost like a really boring biography. It felt like a drag having to read all the way through. Not much fore shadowing either. No offense to the author.

Begins with unending arguments. Didn't read far enough to find out if the book ever got past that.

If you have any history with St. Louis and/or Florida, parts of the story will ring quite true.
