I'm crazy about Laura Levine's mystery series. Her books are so outrageously funny. --Joanne Fluke

If clothes make the man, then what do Jaine Austen's elastic-waist pants and T-shirts make her? A fashion nightmare, according to her neighbor, Lance. She doesn't expect Lance--who works in the designer shoe department at Nieman Marcus--to understand. . .which is how she ends up visiting his favorite boutique, Passions. While the couture is definitely not for Jaine, the staff's gossip is. Tiny orange-haired clerk Becky starts complaining about her co-worker Giselle--a.k.a. "Frenchie"-- a brittle blonde who, when she's not making fun of customers behind their backs, adds extra-marital notches to her Chanel belt. Though Jaine doesn't land a new look, she does land a new job when Passions' owner gives her a chance to write their new magazine ads.

But when Jaine arrives the next morning to pitch her ideas, she finds Frenchie pitched over, stabbed in the neck by one of her own stilettos. Now all Jaine has to do is figure out who hated Frenchie the most, in a case of death by designer knock-off. . .

This book was fairly good, though not as exciting as Killer Blonde, the book in the series written before it. I felt it was pointless (spoiler alert) that the murderer didn't even have a motive other than framing someone else, seeing that the victim had so many enemies. I enjoyed the suspense that built up to the end, however. I have read 4 books in the series (not in order) I would probably rate it third. I would reasonably give it a 3.5/5. I was introduced to Laura Levine as one of her mysteries was published in the same book as Gingerbread Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke, my all time favourite author. My favourite genre is mystery.
