Blog Tour & Review: A Disguise To Die For by Diane Vallere

Posted by Jennifer in 4 Stars, Blog Tour, Cozy Mystery, Reviews / 1 Comment


No sooner does former magician’s assistant Margo Tamblyn return home to Proper City, Nevada, to run Disguise DeLimit, her family’s costume shop, than she gets her first big order. Wealthy nuisance Blitz Manners needs forty costumes for a detective-themed birthday bash. As for Blitz himself, his Sherlock Holmes is to die for—literally—when, in the middle of the festivities, Margo’s friend and party planner Ebony Welles is caught brandishing a carving knife over a very dead Blitz.

For Margo, clearing Ebony’s name is anything but elementary, especially after Ebony flees town. Now Margo is left to play real-life detective in a town full of masked motives, cloaked secrets, and veiled vendettas. But as she soon learns, even a killer disguise can’t hide a murderer in plain sight for long.

Review of A Disguise to Die For:

Review (4 Stars):  A Disguise to Die For was a charming mystery with clever plot twists that is sure to entertain.  Margo has returned home to Proper City, Nevada to help her father run their family store, Disguise DeLimit.  Only after being home a few days, she discovers a dead body at a birthday bash that her friend, Ebony, has put together for a rich client.  Now, Ebony is the prime suspect for the murder and Margo must help find a killer before it is too late.

I absolutely loved Margo and her wonderful creative fashion sense in this mystery.  This book has characters that you will instantly adore such as Ebony and Margo’s cranky but lovable Dad.  This is the great start to a brand new series and Ms. Vallere is a mystery writer that is on the rise.  Can’t wait to read book number two.
