Review: I'm a HUGE fan of this author and can't believe I haven't read this series yet! Madison Night is a wonderful main character....she is an interior decorator who specializes in mid-century modern decorating, and consistently dresses the part, wearing clothes made from Butterick patterns of the fifties and channeling her inner Doris Day.
This time around, Madison is on a "vacation" in Palm Springs with Hudson, where they are helping his brother-in-law with a construction/decorating project. When she finds a dead body in the river, the focus of her time switches to solving the murder, especially when she discovers several people she knows had a connection to the victim.
There is action all through the story, as well as several plot twists to keep the reader guessing. When the killer is finally revealed, it is a complete surprise....but at the same time, the motive is totally believable.
I can hardly wait to read more of Madison's adventures!!
Rating: Four stars
