Overview

When Joanna Hayworth visits Bradley Stroden, a onetime protégé of legendary costume designer Edith Head, she expects to find closets bulging with drool-worthy gowns to stock her Portland, Oregon, vintage clothing store. Instead, she finds a corpse.

With movie costumes as bait, Joanna investigates why Stroden was murdered. Could it be tied to the tell-all Hollywood memoir he was writing? Or to a midcentury film noir that was mysteriously yanked before it was released? Or to his “adoring” sister?

At the same time, Joanna stumbles upon a priceless pair of emerald earrings hidden on her laundry shelf. Her houseguest has some explaining to do. Joanna’s new marriage—and, possibly, her life itself—depend on figuring out who is acting and who is for real.

About the Author

Angela M. Sanders worked for more than a decade as a congressional investigator before turning author. Her lack of success finding bathtub reading that was indulgent yet smart led her to write the Joanna Hayworth Vintage Clothing mysteries-sample title, Dior or Die-and The Booster Club capers, which center around a retirement home for petty criminals. Under the pen name Clover Tate, she writes a series of kite shop mysteries, the third of which, Wuthering Kites, launches September 2018. Angela's articles on food, personalities, and perfume have appeared in a variety of magazines, and she's a columnist for the popular fragrance blog, Now Smell This. When Angela isn't at her laptop, she's rummaging in thrift shops, lounging with a vintage detective novel, or pontificating about how to make the perfect martini. www.angelamsanders.com.
