    Long Island Cozy Murder Mystery

    This book is a fun and cozy mystery that takes place in a small Long Island town. There are many plot shifts and details that leaves our heroine lost. This is a great start for a new series. There are quite a bit of fashion details as the story revolves around a consignment store. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I received this book for free and this is my honest opinion.

    I loved it!

    I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I am not usually a fan of fashion/consignment cozies but this one really grabbed me. I found the characters entertaining and the whodunit kept me enthralled and guessing. I look forward to reading the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of the book.

    Fashionista Cozy

    Kelly Quinn lot her job as an assistant fashion buyer in New York and her Granny. But Granny left her the resale store and apartment in Long Island and Kelly has a chance to build a new career for herself. But during the first sale a local psychic tries on a dress and has a vision of a man being murdered and the woman who consigned the dress wants it back. Kelly finds herself a murder suspect when she goes to the psychic's house and finds the psychic's cousin dead. Now Kelly has to clear her name and that of the resale shop (boutique) that now has a reputation for selling haunted items. Will Kelly close up shop and head back to New York City, or will she stand her ground and make a go of the business...if she isn't murdered first. While the characters appear well developed, I did find Kelly's being 26 and calling a younger woman, potentially a recent high school grad, young and inexperienced a tad arrogant. There are times the character is rather mature and others where she is extremely immature and is called out on it. Since this is a new series and I'm a bit torn, I'm going to wait for the second book to come out. I find that the second book is what really makes or breaks a new series, so I'm going to have faith that the author is going to make tweaks that will add this one to my must read list going forward.

    A new lighthearted cozy mystery

    murder wears a little black dressMurders Wears a Little Black Dress by Debra Sennefelder takes readers on a journey to Lucky Cove, New York. Kelly Quinn has inherited her grandmother’s consignment shop, Lucky Cove consignment Shop much to her Uncle Ralph’s disappointment. Kelly has big plans to make the shop profitable and change it into an upscale boutique. She is having a three day sale to help clear out the unwanted items. Bernadette Rydell, the local psychic, comes in and tries on a little black dress. While wearing the dress, Bernadette has a vision of a man being murdered. The shop quickly clears of customers while rumors of the “haunted dress” swirl about town keeping shoppers at bay. Kelly needs to get her sale back on track and starts by visiting the dresses consignee. She then gets a call from Bernadette asking her to stop by right away. Kelly arrives at Bernadette’s cottage and finds her dead on the floor. She is shocked when Bernadette walks through the door. The victim is Maxine Lemoyne, Bernadette’s cousin, who could pass for her twin sister. Which cousin was the intended target? Detective Nora Wolman is on the case, and she has Kelly at the top of her suspect list. The situation at her shop deteriorates when Valerie Leigh holds an impromptu séance and claims a chair is haunted which results in a customer filing a lawsuit. Kelly is determined to clear her name and the shop’s. However, someone is not happy with her sleuthing and tries to discourage her. When a second person connected to the case is murdered, Kelly knows she must be getting close to the truth. Kelly needs to work quickly, or she could end up the subject of the séance. Murder Wears a Little Black Dress is the debut novel in A Resale Boutique Mystery series. Kelly Quinn has inherited her grandmother’s consignment boutique and she is determined to make it work. Kelly lost her job as an assistant buyer in New York and her old boss has had her blackballed in the fashion industry. She wants to make changes to the shop to feature clothing and accessories only (getting rid of furniture and tchotchkes). Pepper Donovan, her grandmother’s friend and employee does not like the changes Kelly plans to make to the shop (I want to know how a shop making no profit can afford an employee). I thought Murder Wears a Little Black Dress was a quick, easy to read cozy mystery. It is fashion oriented with detailed clothing descriptions. The mystery was straightforward and avid mystery readers will find it a piece of cake pinpointing the killer. I wish the author had provided more details on Kelly’s past. Some information is imparted throughout the book and details on how she lost her job is slowly revealed. Kelly has tension with Ariel Barnes over an incident that occurred back in high school. Again, the information is slowly provided as the story progresses (very drawn out). To me it should have been an emotional part of the story, but the feelings were not there. There is a smidgeon of paranormal in the story and a hint of romance. Murder Wears a Little Black Dress is a lively cozy mystery with fashionable clothes, personable characters, murder, mystical forces, and mayhem.
