“Baguettes, bodies, and haute couture galore! Shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer, is at it again, this time in fabulously fashionable Paris. When Europe’s designer de jour, Jean Luc LeCroix, invites Maddie to show her creations at Paris Fashion Week, Maddie’s sure she’s died and gone to heaven. That is until Jean Luc’s top model is found dead on the runway, stabbed with a familiar stiletto heel. Sure someone is trying to frame her, Maddie enlists the help of her friends, including the sexy Detective Jack Ramirez, to uncover a daring jewel heist, a devious blackmailer, and even a few skeletons lurking in the closets of those closest to her. But as the evidence mounts, Maddie becomes the prime suspect and Ramirez is stuck between a badge and a cute blonde with a tendency for trouble. Will he stand by her as she attempts to track down an international killer, or will this be the case that finally comes between them? One thing’s for sure, if Maddie doesn’t uncover the real killer soon, she may be saying her final adieu.”
This book did not disappoint.
I’ve been loving this series, and now that I got back into it, I don’t even want to read any of the other books I planned on reading, I just feel like reading this series.
Let me start by saying the characters are so well developed in this book (well the whole series to be honest). I feel like when characters are this well developed, you enjoy the story so much more.
The main character Maddie, is hilarious. I can identify so much with her, and she just, is too hilarious. Sometimes I am literally laughing out loud at the things that happen in this book.
I loved the setting in this one! Europe, Paris ❤ I mean does it get better than that? This one was during Fashion Week, which I don’t care much for, but regardless, it was beautiful.
There’s also the whole love triangle. Which usually I’m just meh about. But Ramirez is just so hot I can’t even deal with it. In regards to the love triangle this book had me so frustrated! My heart was going crazy, because well I don’t want to spoil it. But that ending!!!
Honestly if you’ve never read a cozy mystery, this series is a great place to start.
