👠Talk about killer fashion! Gina LaManna takes readers on one helluva ride in her latest series, Murder in Style!

The pleasant old Midwestern town of Blueberry Lake, Minnesota gets its first lesson in fashion with Secrets and Stilettos. Our leading lady, Jenna McGovern, isn't one to be framed! Living in the spotlight and having styled many episodes of NCIS back in Hollywood Hills, she's picked up a thing or two. Whether the local chief of police likes it or not, she's not about to be caught in a neon orange jumpsuit!

This story is entirely narrated by Jenna with believable supporting characters that are hard not to fall in love with. All Jenna wanted to do was come home, help her Mom and get her fresh start... but LaManna just kept throwing her one obstacle after another! Every time I thought I had it all figured out and the unlikely killer pinned down, I found out just how wrong I was! All I knew was that I didn't want to put it down and that I needed to figure out how to get to June's Blueberry Jam Café!

What can I say, what can I say?!?! I absolutely relished in reading Secrets and Stilletos! LaManna's style, especially in this latest series, reminds me so much of Janet Evanovich. I was engaged and laughing the entire time, so much to the point that my husband started asking me what so funny only for me to read him a line or two, and we'd laugh together! I am very much looking forward to number two in the series, Lipstick and Lies!

Many thanks go to the author Gina LaManna for providing me an advanced reader's copy of this stylish little number! I'd recommend this to fans of her previous works as well as fans of Janet Evanovich! A cozy mystery favorite for sure! This is one you won't want to miss; pre-order now on Amazon or check it out on Kindle Unlimited starting January 10th!

Book Blurb:
Fashion can be deadly…

Jenna McGovern’s strappy shoes and sundresses are not going to cut it when she makes the move from Hollywood Hills to Blueberry Lake, Minnesota in the stone-cold dead of winter. A former stylist to the stars, Jenna’s determined to bring the latest red-carpet fashions back to the Midwest in an effort to revive her mother’s floundering thrift shop.

When Jenna finds out her first client is Grant Mark, the best man in a high-profile winter wedding, she’s thrilled. However, when Grant gets a little too handsy in the dressing room, Jenna is forced to fend him off with her stiletto and send him packing. While she’s glad to be rid of the difficult groomsman, it’s pure bad luck that Grant is found dead later that afternoon from a high heel to the throat. What’s worse is that the attractive chief of police is convinced Jenna’s the one who put it there.

If Jenna doesn’t clear her name quickly, she’ll not only lose the chance to style the biggest winter wedding Blueberry Lake has ever seen, but her mother’s thrift store will go under for good—and Jenna will be stuck flaunting the worst fashion of all time: a neon orange jumpsuit.

Book Blurb:
Jenna McGovern is dressed to kill for Blueberry Lake’s annual firefighter charity auction. But when she finds her attractive fireman neighbor, Matt Bridges, standing over the body of a local hair stylist—and his ex-girlfriend—it’s not exactly the romantic ambiance Jenna had in mind.

While the handsome chief of police, Cooper Dear, sets out to investigate Matt, Jenna finds herself sucked into another murder case in which an innocent man seems to have been framed. Cooper isn’t especially thrilled when Jenna takes Matt’s side, and he’s even less thrilled when it appears the murderer has turned his or her sights on Jenna.

Unfortunately, Jenna’s in far too deep to back out. She’s got a new car, freshly waxed eyebrows, and a manicure that can be seen from space… but if Jenna doesn’t stop the murderer before it’s too late, she’ll be picking out clothes for her very own funeral.
