A Disguise to Die For
by Diane Vallere

I really liked the author’s writing style as it made the story just flow along.
~A. Holland Reads
Vallere is becoming my go-to author for a fun and crazy -without being over the top -read. This is my 3rd book by her and it might just be the most fun.
~I Wish I Lived In a Library
I’m already loving the Costume Shop Mysteries series after this first book. It’s witty, funny, fresh and kept my interest.
~Bubble Bath Books
You will be captivated from the start.

Someone is dressed to kill in the debut Costume Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness mysteries.
No sooner does former magician’s assistant Margo Tamblyn return home to Proper City, Nevada, to run Disguise DeLimit, her family’s costume shop, than she gets her first big order. Wealthy nuisance Blitz Manners needs forty costumes for a detective-themed birthday bash. As for Blitz himself, his Sherlock Holmes is to die for—literally—when, in the middle of the festivities, Margo’s friend and party planner Ebony Welles is caught brandishing a carving knife over a very dead Blitz.
For Margo, clearing Ebony’s name is anything but elementary, especially after Ebony flees town. Now Margo is left to play real-life detective in a town full of masked motives, cloaked secrets, and veiled vendettas. But as she soon learns, even a killer disguise can’t hide a murderer in plain sight for long.

About The Author

I’m a former fashion buyer turned mystery writer, trading fashion accessories for accessories to murder. I was bit by the mystery bug as a kid reading Trixie Belden, Connie Blair, and The Three Investigators. Now I’m writing three series: the Style & Error Mysteries, the Mad for Mod Mysteries, and the Material Witness Mysteries. Coming in Feb 2016: The new Costume Shop Cozy Mysteries!
The Material Witness mysteries feature Polyester Monroe, who inherits the fabric shop where she was born. Books include SUEDE TO REST and CRUSHED VELVET. The third, SILK STALKINGS, will be out in August 2016.
The Style & Error Series features former fashion buyer turned amateur sleuth Samantha Kidd. Books in that series include DESIGNER DIRTY LAUNDRY; BUYER, BEWARE; THE BRIM REAPER; and SOME LIKE IT HAUTE. (A short story, “Just Kidding,” tells the story of how Samantha first met shoe designer Nick Taylor). Book 5, GRAND THEFT RETRO, will be out in 2016.
The Madison Night Mysteries feature a modern day interior decorator who specializes in midcentury design (studying Doris Day movies to get the look right). Books are PILLOW STALK, THAT TOUCH OF INK, and WITH VICS YOU GET EGGROLL. A prequel novella, “Midnight Ice,” can be found in OTHER PEOPLE’S BAGGAGE.

My review;

"A Disguise to Die For" by author Diane Vallere is a really nice mystery. Margo Tamblyn has come home to take over her family's business, a costume store. Her first big party happens to be the one where someone is killed and her friend is the top suspect. Margo has to help her friend but she has run away. She will have to really work fast to find the real killer. But will it be fast enough so that no one else gets hurt? I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.

  1. The three investigators was one of my favorite series when I was a kid too!

  2. I have never been to a costume shop so I would love to visit this one and meet the characters.

  3. I am looking forward to reading the cozy Costume Shop Mystery. It sounds like a fun read.

  4. I would definitely go to a mystery dinner if a real murder was promised.

  5. All of your books sound great, I'd really love to read The Madison Night Mysteries!
