Review: Design for Dying by Renee Patrick

Lillian works in a department store after coming to Hollywood and finding she
really had not talent for acting. A friend of hers is found murdered in clothes stolen from Paramount and Edith Head becomes involved in the investigation as well. Hollywood insanity, gangsters, great clothes, wealthy parties and stars like Bob Hope and Barbara Stanwyck makes appearances.

That - AND the mystery is quite good. Nice balance of Lillian working with the police and Edith. Interesting secrets and characters and most of all - I REALLY like Lillian and her attitude and sleuthing. Definitely deserved the Agatha nomination. It is a fun romp with Old Hollywood Glamour!

Spirits United! I apologize for last month’s blog. I was so down in the dumps, I just couldn’t bear to be funny. Losing a best friend...
