Things I love about this book:
1. It doesn't offer a fetishistic, glamorous view of the fashion industry. It is grounded on a phenomenal amount of insider, no-frills know-how that gives the book a layer of credibility you don't find in other books set in the fashion world.
2. Laura Carnegie. The main character isn't beautiful; she's cynical and bitter; she often says very stupid things she regrets; and she doesn't have everything figured out from the beginning. In short, she's much more real and relatable than most who-done-it heroines who always seem to be unrealistically sexy and cool.
3. I genuinely didn't know who the killer was. Usually I do, but there was never a moment where I felt like I was ahead of the book.

Laura and Ruby are on a roll with their new Fashion House first big show.
Everything is going great even with the usual problems concerning the "Giraffes" (that is supermodels to you and me). Just as the show is ready to begin, Laura finds her top Giraffe dead in the bathroom.

Suddenly, Ruby is accused of her murder and the police are convinced that she is the murderer after discovering some new information about her relationship with the model. Laura doesn't believe the police will continue to search for the real killer so she starts her own investigation. Laura, with a little help from her friends begins to uncover information about an under age model agency that might lead to the real killer.

Christine DeMaio-Rice style of writing is full of wit and humor that adds a lot of fun and charm to her stories, this book even more so than the first in this series. What drives the story for me are the characters, they all are unique in one way or the other and as the story progresses we find out more about them. The personal relationships between Laura and her ex boss Jeremy and most interesting Ruby and her new relationship are at the fore front of this story. All the characters that we loved and hated are back again aiding Laura to help find a murderer and save her business.

If you liked the Stephanie Plum books you will not be disappointed with these characters, Ms. DeMaio-Rice's characters are just as flawed and funny but in a different way that is enjoyable. I am looking for to the next installment in Laura and Ruby's life and relationships. I was lucky enough to be offer this books to read and review with no restrictions as to a good review.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Ms. DeMaio-Rice also did the beautiful cover art for this book, it seems she is very talented in more than just writing.

Death of a Supermodel is characterized by the same trademark wit and sarcasm I've come to associate with this author. The main character is one of those women who takes no ca-ca and comes out swinging like a he!!cat on the other side. In this installment of DeMaio-Rice's Fashion Avenue mysteries, Laura and her sister find themselves embroiled in a scheme even closer to home than the death of the first book (Dead Is the New Black) -- and Laura's sister just might be in trouble. Laura -- as determined as a momma hen on an egg -- refuses to let her sister fall for something she didn't do, and takes it upon herself to figure out just what really happened.

As good, if not better than the first book. This series belongs front-facing on the shelves of a major bookstore.

DeMaio-Rice is a talented voice in the mystery genre with a certain je ne sais quoi that is unbeatable.

My favorite line hands down -- "You can't take the hard things too seriously, really. It all works out in the end."

Really really enjoyed reading Ms. De Maio-Rice book: "DEAD IS THE NEW BLACK", her previous book and this is one, DEATH OF A SUPER MODEL is just as good if not even better. It was great getting acquainted with the characters from the first book and seen how things had developed since we last left them. Ms De Maio-Rice has an insight to the fashion industry that can only be described as viewing every thing with a jaundiced eye. In this case its not just the fashion industry that is viewed as such, but also the people involved in the fashion industry whose egos far exceeds their weight in gold. The witty and entertaining Ms De Maio-Rice describes the whole industry with such a charming wit that she brings it to life in front of your eyes as you read her books. Excellent story and with a protagonist that you feel like shaking some sense into now and again. Isn't it great to get that involved in a book!! happens far too few times. Also has to be noted the great cover which I am sure the author designed herself and well done in getting a great proofreader and editor, the book was a pleasure to read in every sense of the word.

Laura's second trip into "Detective Land" made me smile and cringe as much as her first sleuthing adventures in Dead Is The New Black. I especially like her interactions with Detective Cangemi. He has a shrugging admiration for her even though she's a royal thorn in his professional side. If she weren't involved with Jeremy while pining for Stu, Cangemi would make an interesting romantic partner for her.

For me, Death Of A Supermodel is a perfect follow-up to Dead Is The New Black. By this, I mean that it stands on its own, while evolving the way all good book series evolve . . . relationships grow stronger and encounter roadblocks, careers twist and turn, and family life solidifies even in the face of serious adversity.

I hope a follow-up book is in the works, featuring a bit more of Mom and secondary staff members of Sartorial Sandwich. Is anyone else sensing that Laura may one day become the ruling force for Jeremy's company -- should cystic fibrosis end his life early? I sense him grooming her for such a role. If this development proves true, I hope it is many books away because I like Jeremy and want to see more of him.
