Overview

Haley Farrell is taking a chance on herself. After receiving her interior design certificate, she quits her job at the local furniture store and decides to open her own interior decorating business. But with all the advantages of her new career-meeting new people, and decorating new and old homes-comes a huge pitfall. Her new job allows her access into her clients' homes and their lives . . . but also their deaths.

When Haley's mentor, Marge Norwalk, is murdered, Haley becomes the prime suspect. Armed only with the confidence that Marge instilled in her, Haley sets out to find the real murderer. But as she sets forth, she has no idea what twists and turns will bring her face-to-face with her long-hidden past.

Book one in the Deadly Décor Mysteries will keep both Ginny Aiken's established readership and new fans coming back for more.

Great whodunit with a strong spiritual undertone and a very satisfying ending. Best book in some time.

Though a bit heavy on the evangelizing, it was still a very good read with a lot of twists and good character development. Haley is a down-to-earth relatable character and the writing is comical and fun. I would, however, like to point out that a professional psychiatrist would never bring religion into a session with a client, or at least not their opinion of any certain one, that did bother me (as a budding therapist). Their casual meeting as friends at mcd's was, of course, kosher. Overall, a beautiful, tragic story of finding justice and regaining faith.

A Christian murder mystery.....who would have thought. Haley Farrell has started her first design business and has scheduled her first big break.....decorating a mansion after it is auctioned off. During the auction the auctioneer and a friend of Haley's ends up dead, and Haley is the prime suspect. Who killed Marge??? Can Haley find out before she ends up in prison or worse??

I've read other Christian books, and this is less in-your-face while still really making you think about God. Really refreshing story!

I couldn't get past the first 10 pages due to the constant tense changes. Seems like a cute story and I would have loved to finish it.
