When a pushy saleswoman at a rival boutique winds up dead, Persia Vanderbilt of Venus Envy steps out from behind the counter to find the killer.
My Thoughts :
When I picked up the first book in this cozy series I didn't think I would be reading the second part straight after. I am not a huge fan of reading a whole series one after another but the activities of Gull Harbor and Persia Vanderbilt had me hooked. I couldn't wait to see what she got up to next and picked up this sequel straight away.
This time around I was even more impressed by the plot, characters and style. Just to remind you, India Ink is actually Yasmine Galenorn and I really love her books. So it isn't really a surprise to find that this series is just as good. Yes it doesn't have any paranormal aspects to it but it is a super read.
The plot this time around incorporated a little more action but it fit perfectly to the story. Also Persia's relationships with her friends and family became very solid while her ex turned up and made things extremely interesting. Any followers of Galenorn's Otherworld series will be amused to see that Deliah was always destined to be a cat. Persia and her aunt have quite a few animals hanging around and I loved this little touch.
The Bath & Body Mysteries are so good I couldn't stop myself from picking up the third and last book as my next read. I have so many other books and even some cool new releases and ARC's waiting for me but I couldn't get away from Gull Harbor! Yasmine always tells a good story!
