Review: Death on Heels

Death on Heels by Ellen Byerrum is the 8th book in the “Crime of Fashion” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, February 2012

When fashion reporter Lacey Smithsonian moved to Washington, D.C., from the rugged small town Sagebrush, Colorado, she thought she’d never look back. But when her former boyfriend, cattle rancher Cole Tucker, is arrested for the murders of three women, Lacey digs her cowboy boots out of her closet and hops on the next plane. She is certain of Tucker’s innocence—until he abducts her during a daring courthouse escape. Is Tucker capable of murder too? Or is there a larger conspiracy? Lacey needs to rustle up all the help she can get for this case before her old flame is snuffed out for good.

She’s back! Lacey is back in Sagebrush, Colorado and the moment she arrives the fun begins on this wild adventure. Believing that an old boyfriend is innocent, Lacey goes to talk with him and soon after, they are both of the run, with Cole having kidnapped Lacey. Finding a clue while on the run, Lacey follows her fashion sense to unclothe a killer. I had such a great time reading this lighthearted whodunit. This was non-stop action at full-speed and it never let up from start to finish. This well-styled mystery entertained me with great dialogue, a sense of being there with Lacey and a page-turning pursuit of clues to keep me guessing. I love the people that are a part of Lacey’s world from her best friends, to her coworkers, to her boyfriend and to her lovable family. These factors shape this delightfully wonderful series that has become a must read. The added bonus of “Fashion Bites” throughout the book is a nice perk that I enjoy. I look forward to more exciting adventures with Lacey and her friends.
