A Killer Closet by Paula Paul is an intriguing cozy mystery that had substantial twists and turns. I gave it four stars.
Irene Seligman leaves her job as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan to return to Santa Fe, New Mexico to come to her mother, Adelle's aid after the death of her most recent husband.
Their goal is to establish a haute couture consignment store. On the grand opening day, the body of one of her mother's friends is discovered in a closet. Than another woman in the same social circle is killed. The chief of police, Andrew Iglesias and another young police officer came to investigate. Irene missed the police man's name. "It was not like her to miss details like that."
"Adelle, still standing at the entrance of the parlor, moaned, 'Oh my God! I can't believe this is happening to me!'
'It's not happening to you. It's happening to me,' Irene called over her shoulder. She was fairly certain, however, that Adelle was too absorbed in her self-centered anguish and humiliation to have heard her."
I received a complimentary kindle copy from Random House Publishing Group-Alibi and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
It is in pre-order status so I could not leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
