Masking for Trouble
by Diane Vallere

I was surprised by the reveal of the murderer. Great book for the Halloween season and for cozy mystery fans.
This book is so great and reminds me of a good Jessica Fletcher type novel if Jessica was younger and more feisty in her searching. …If you love Halloween and cozy mysteries you will definitely love this one and the ending will definitely keep you guessing!
~Community Bookstop
The book has depth and the plot is solid. The dialogue between the characters is fluid and the story is fast paced.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews
What a perfect book to read for this month…I think it is a good mystery when the identity of the real killer is kept until the end and that is what this author has done.
~A. Holland Reads
I love how Diane Vallere writes, there is wit, humor and a great thrill in each book. I felt that reading Masking for Trouble, was like revisiting an old friend and helping her keep the town in one piece.
~Bibliophile Reviews
Masking for Trouble by Diane Vallere is a fast-paced, quirky mystery that will have you turning pages quicker than Margo Tamblyn changes costumes.
~Brooke Blogs
The reveal was suspenseful and kept me reading a bit past my bedtime! It definitely got me in the Halloween spirit!

Halloween brings more tricks than treats for costume shop owner Margo Tamblyn in the second in a new cozy series from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness Mysteries.
Halloween conjures up big business for Margo Tamblyn’s costume shop, Disguise DeLimit, but this year, the holiday comes knocking with serious trouble. Venture capitalist Paul Haverford plans to rezone historic downtown into a glitzy commercial area which would push out local business. Margo is set on saving her family’s store, especially after a nasty run-in with the chain-store tycoon, but after Haverford’s body is discovered during a spooky party at the derelict Alexandria Hotel, Margo finds herself dressed as the police’s prime suspect.
Anxious to clear her name, Margo begins hunting down anyone who might have wanted Haverford dead. Between all of his malicious maneuverings, the murdered mogul had buckets of people anxious to see him gone. Now, Margo will have to use every trick in the book to find a cloaked killer—before someone else winds up wearing a death shroud…

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.
The Costume Shop mysteries debuted with A DISGUISE TO DIE FOR, which introduces Margo Tamblyn, costume shop owner, who helps solve a murder after one of her clients is found dead at his own costume party (dressed as Sherlock!). MASKING FOR TROUBLE, the second in the series, will be out in October 2016, just in time for Halloween.
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,  was just released.
The Style & Error Series features former fashion buyer turned amateur sleuth Samantha Kidd. Books in that series include DESIGNER DIRTY LAUNDRYBUYER, BEWARETHE 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;
 "Masking for Trouble" by author Diane Vallere is a novel that is just in time for Halloween. Margo Tamblyn owns a costume shop. The name of her store is Disguise DeLimit. A man named Paul Haverford wants to change historic downtown where her business and other businesses are. After Margo lets him know how she really feels about his idea he is discovered dead. Now the cops think that she had something to do with his murder. Margo decides that she will have to get herself out of this mess. But, she finds out that there a lot people that did not like him. They all wanted him gone. Will Margo be able to clear herself before someone else, or she herself gets killed next. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
