“Strangled By Silk” is Coming to Life!

Here’s the back cover blurb from our publisher, Cozy Cat Press:

Daphne and Margot––two independent young California women in 1957––own their own dress shop called Poppy Cove.  When one of their top clients––Constance Stearns-Montgomery––is strangled to death with her own silk scarf at the opening ceremonies for her new girls’ academy, Daphne and Margot are shocked.  They can’t believe that such a horrid crime could take place in their sleepy little oceanside village of Santa Lucia.  Worse, they’ve lost one of their best clients.  The two women quickly become embroiled in solving the crime.  After all, if anyone can track down the killer, it should be them.  Margot’s long-time beau is the town’s top cop, and Daphne is a master at using her flirtatious wiles to extract information from unsuspecting men.   Of course, neither girl will let their snooping get in the way of more urgent tasks such as choosing new textiles and accessories for Poppy Cove or planning their fall fashion show or––most important––selecting the appropriate ensemble to wear for each and every occasion.  But these two fashion detectives are on the case, and the murderer––and the poorly attired––had better watch out!

Stay tuned for further developments.  All so very exciting :-)!

Toodles,

Barbara Jean
