Perils and Lace - A Review


PERILS AND LACE by Gayle Leeson
The Second Ghostly Fashionista Mystery

Always ready for a challenge, Amanda Tucker agrees to help design the costumes for the high school's production of Beauty and the Beast. While coming up with creative designs for ottomans and feather dusters, she can't help but hear the rumors about the director having an affair with another teacher and notice that the smart as a whip student stage manager is hiding something. When the director is poisoned, Amanda fears for the students and the well being of her friend Connie, who found the woman. While helping her ghostly friend Max get a social media presence, looking our for the young stage manager, and getting closer to her boyfriend, Amanda will keep her eyes and ears open and see if she can discover just who killed Sandra Kelly. 

I really love this series! Max is too much fun and I love how she's now on social media and able to interact with more people. As a theatre person, I'm always happy when books feature a theatrical production and I loved seeing Amanda's concepts come to life for the unusual costumes in Beauty and the Beast. I was thrilled to see Biscuits and Gravy back, running amok and making me laugh out loud!

Relationships are the foundation of the Ghostly Fashionista Mystery series, from Amanda's bond with her grandfather to her encounters with the other shopkeepers of Shops on Main, to her friendship with a ghost and the developing romance with Jason. It's these relationships that get readers invested in the characters lives and make the story even more meaningful.

PERILS AND LACE is a fun mystery that challenges your perceptions. Warmth, humor, and camaraderie infuse the pages making it a delightful read.
