The writing in itself was fine, but the mystery or at least the villain was obvious (at least to me) and the sense of place seemed off. My main issue was that the characters weren’t really that likable. Grasping, shallow fashionistas, not really anyone I could relate to and I do like clothes and fashion. I enjoy other fashion based cozies, such as Meg London’s Sweet Nothing’s Lingerie series, Annette Blair’s Vintage Magic Series and the Ellen Byerrum’s Crime of Fashion series, so it was definitely not the theme was the issue.
I was looking forward to this one for a while so it was disappointing that it didn’t work for me.
