Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
It has long been open to question whether blondes really do have more fun…but there's absolutely no doubt that Drop-Dead Blonde is an anthology designed to show mystery fans a really great time. Get ready for four cunning tales, each blending blonde bombshells with explosive plots. One warning before you dip into the diverse delights of Drop-Dead Blonde: Don't put your faith in stereotypes. The flaxen beauties in these tales may be fair-haired, but that's no guarantee of fair play. And these dynamic stories offer proof positive that some blondes can be deceptive, deadly, and anything but dumb. In "Slay Belles," Nancy Martin sets Nora Blackbird (from her Blackbird Sisters mystery series) on the trail of a cold-blooded culprit who has found a way to spoil a Philadelphia personal shopper's Christmas plans…permanently. This talented author blends her delightfully fashion-conscious tale of holiday frivolity with a mix of more serious issues, including elder abuse, murder, and more. In "Killer Blonde," Helen Hawthorne, protagonist of Elaine Viets's delightful Dead-End Job mystery series, takes a brief break from her own off-the-books employment to listen to her eccentric landlady's fascinating account of two dueling blondes whose office politics produced deadly -- though still undicovered -- consequences 35 years ago.In "Dead Blondes Tell No Tales," Denise Swanson's Scumble River setting lends true small-town charm to her story of shenanigans that keep school psychologist Skye Denison busy during spring break. This time Skye's juggling sex toys, false alarms, karaoke, malicious mischief, a Marilyn Monroe look-alike contest, and more."Blind Sighted" by Victoria Laurie is the second outing for crime-solving psychic intuitive Abby Cooper (introduced in Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye), and it's a real treat. This engaging, paranormally gifted sleuth's vacation is unexpectedly transformed into an investigation when a professional cynic is murdered at a seminar hosted by a famous psychic. And the fun doesn't stop there. Each of these terrific stories is followed by a tantalizing preview of the author's upcoming full-length novel in the same popular series. Sue Stone

Elaine Viets has actually worked those dead-end jobs in her mystery novels, just like her character, Helen Hawthorne. Over the years, Elaine has been a dress store clerk, phone book proofreader, babysitter, telemarketer, bookseller, and weed puller at fifty cents a bucket.  She is also the author of the Josie Marcus, Mystery Shopper series and numerous short stories. Elaine has won an Anthony Award and an Agatha Award. She lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with her husband, author and actor Don Crinklaw.  Please visit her blog: The Lipstick Chronicles.
Denise Swanson has worked as a school psychologist for 17 years. This is her second novel featuring Skye Denison and Scumble River. Her first book, Murder of a Small-Town Honey, debuted to advance praise from the Charlotte Austin Review, Meritorious Mysteries, and BookBrowser. She is currently working on the next Scumble River mystery, Murder of a Sleeping Beauty. Denise lives in Illinois with her husband, Dave, and their cool black cat, Boomerang. For more information, visit her website: www.deniseswanson.com

    Great set of books!

    I loved this set. Denise Swanson and Victoria Laurie are two of my favorites. But all 4 books were fun and interesting. My favorite kind of mystery. Turns out I had read this one before, but enjoyed it the 2nd time around too! Highly recommended!
