2012 eFestival of Words Winner for best Mystery/suspense.
A Red Adept Select for outstanding book in its genre.
Although this novel is billed as a cozy mystery, it is far more than that. *Dead Is the New Black* is a complex novel, woven with delicate finesse by the author. At it's core is a heroine that underestimates herself on many different levels. But she's smart, talented, and takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of everything.
I will say that I really enjoyed this book. It's been polished to perfection by the author and that really shows. The careful crafting and layering of details made me feel like a part of the novel, and not just a reader. That characters were well developed and the setting (in a design house one week before a big fashion show)is fabulous. It was one of the cleanest books I've read in a while too-- no profanity, adult situations or graphic violence. - *Quirkygurl Media*
