I did not connect with the main character and didn't like her very much. The other characters were only given brief descriptions and didn't really come to life. The ending of the mystery seemed abrupt and almost as an afterthought. There were some good descriptions of post-Katrina New Orleans.

GT Herren is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Fashion Victim. First, I just get a kick out of the cover! So fun and cute. I'm also a big fan of chick lit mysteries, so I was in for a treat this one! The main character is Paige Tourneur, a reporter living in New Orleans who gets assigned a personality profile on fashion designer Marigny Mercereau - who winds up dead. Paige takes it upon herself to figure out Marigny's death while keeping her job and love interest interested in her.

Fashion Victim is a fast-paced and quick read into the life and mind of the quick-thinking and smart-mouthed Paige. She cracked me up with some of her antics, and it was fun to follow along with her journey into finding the murderer. This book really zipped past for me, I finished reading it in one day, and I almost wish it could have stretched on a bit longer because I was having so much fun with it. I definitely want to check into other books from Herren, as it sounds like this isn't the first appearance Paige makes in his stories. One to check out!

Paige Tourneur is not your typical chick-lit/mystery character, and this is a wonderful thing. In no particular order: she's got a great guy, she loves her job, she's good at her job, her boss trusts her, and although her current assignment wasn't one she was loving (interviewing a so-called "fashion icon" in New Orleans, who designs outfits Paige herself finds awful) it was nothing that a horrible hangover couldn't put into perspective.

Paige is smart. She's perhaps a bit sarcastic and snarky (but I love her for it) and although she doesn't miss her crime beat job, when the woman her magazine was about to profile - said designer - has been shot and killed, Paige is one of the last to have seen her alive. How's a girl to resist?

Of course, murders can be messy, and snoops aren't often welcome. And - oh yeah - her boyfriend wants to make things very serious. Paige isn't sure which of those has more potential for disaster.

With a cast of characters that will make you smile (there are some Easter eggs here for those of you who know GT Herren under another name), a mystery that's a perfect tangle for an afternoon novella, and an ending sure to make you crave the next Paige Tourneur in what I hope is a long series, 'Fashion Victim' was a great way to spend a day. Download. Read. Enjoy.

This is a short, easy and shallow book, great if you want something you can read in your lunch hour and still finish your sandwich.

It had some parts that were kind of fun and interesting but not one of Herren's better stories. Have liked many of his other books better.

The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five was that it very much comes across as an introductory book; a book that shows you characters that'll be delved in to farther down the line. It doesn't deliver any surprises and I suspect that's because it is focusing on character development. The plot decent and keeps the pace fast and it did leave me wondering what's going to happen next to the people she introduced so it did its job. There are many authors out there who've got characters that keep a reader's attention and desire to learn more about the characters in further books.

Paige Tourneur is no shrinking violet as is true for so many southern women. She's got great taste in friends, a wonderful "manfriend" and enough dedication to her craft to keep her in trouble. Paige also has plenty of faults that maker her real.

She never set out to find the killer but with her desire to write a quality piece for the magazine she edits, she doesn't hesitate to ask questions and look for information that could land her in hot water.

One thing I really liked about the book is that it's a good exception to what I've come to accept from many indie authors. It's very well edited. Despite knowing it's very difficult to write something past 10 pages without making some mistakes no matter how good your grammar and spelling skills are, this book never made me wince with an, "Oh come on, you couldn't be bothered to check for spelling errors!" Then seeing the author's note at the back really made me grin. This author wants to produce high quality work. Thus I'm more than willing to watch and see how the author's plot skills improve over time. When you read as much as I do, sometimes it's worth reading and waiting to see how an author's skill increases. That's why I gave it four stars and not three.

Although the series and characters were interesting (except for abrupt endings), the main character's dependence on alcohol and pot as a lifestyle was really disappointing. After reading the first two in the series, will pass on future offers.
