Logan has penned a priceless series debut rife with an array of amusing, eccentric and witty characters. The banter is fluid, the narrative smooth and the mystery coiled tightly - perhaps, buttoned securely is more fitting.
Button Holed is absorbing, clever, crisp and finally not another contrived mystery with crafts tossed in as a diversion.
Brava Logan for creating a protagonist who is authentic, bright, enthralling, fun, innovative, and strong - it has been a long time coming for an amateur sleuth to pull off so many empowering attributes and you did it in style! Stand back and watch the copycats swoop down on Logan's imaginative series, but always remember she is the groundbreaking pioneer in this genre.
Review first published on Blogcritics.
"Button Holed" held my interest from the first page to the last.
I never gave much thought to buttons before, although I am sure I have my mom's and my mil's button jars somewhere in the house. I am going to look for them. This book has led me to google antique buttons and there are some beauties!!! I never looked for buttons before, but I am now interested. Are there really button stores, though? I have never seen one.
I am looking forward to Kylie Logan's next book in the series....the series is a winner, for sure - very well written, good editing! It is the first book I have read in a while where I did not find any editorial mishaps - a pleasure, for sure!! I did not have to look words up in the dictionary every five seconds either, to me, this is the sign of a good author, an author who is confident and sure of herself as a writer. She doesn't have to prove anything to anyone. The pages speak for themselves.
Great writing, great editing, great story, very entertaining. I highly recommend the series!
Josie Giancola has recently opened her antique button in the Old Town section of Chicago.
She is excited to be opening the store today, as the starlet, Kate Francisous, is going to be coming to shop to look for some antique buttons for wedding gown. But instead Josie finds two thugs ransacking her shop. Josie and her assistant hastily put the shop is some kind of order as Kate will be returnng in a day or two to make her final selection. When that day comes, Kate arrives early and when Josie gets back to the shop, she finds Kate has been stabbed with a button hook. After the police have finished their initial investigation, Josie finds a button on the floor that Kate would have been laying on. This button was made from boxwood and is something that was not part of her inventory. She is sure that the button belongs to the murderer.
Kate's fiance is Prince Roland. Prince Roland has learned that Kate has not been faithful during their engagement. The Prince doesn't want this information getting back to his father who would probably disinherit him. The person who had this indescrection with is none other than the producer of the movie see is currently shooting. Estelle Marvin has a TV show that Kate had agrred to be on, and Marvin had gone to great expense to get the segment ready. But Kate decides that she is not going to do the show. In addition Kate had 3 assistants who she treated like nobodies.
So Josie set off to find the murderer, as she doesn't believe the person the police have arrested is the killer.
A fantastic story with a group of believable characters and a few chuckles thrown in for good measure.
I will be looking for the next book in the series.
The heroine behaves sensibly throughout the story as do the police. There is also a charming rogue of an ex-husband involved in Josie's life.
Obviously Josie has to take part in the investigation or there would be no story. It is a fast moving cozy. I have no interest whatsoever in collecting buttons, but it doesn't alter the desirability of the book.

Disappointing. Set in Chicago but seemed like New York City (nobody would ride the "L" to a $5,000 fund raiser). Read morePublished 12 months ago by Satsuki
