Title: Swag Bags and Swindlers
Author: Dorothy Howell
Series: Haley Randolph Mystery #11
Synopsis (from bn.com): Haley Randolph’s 25th birthday is just around the corner, and the full-time fashionista is ready to quit her credit card-paying job at Holt’s Department Store. All she has to do is make sure nothing goes wrong with the big party she’s planning at the Hollywood Haven retirement home. But when Haley finds the home’s assistant director sprawled on his bloody office floor, she sees her hope of keeping her job—not to mention the dream of owning a Sassy, the season’s hottest handbag—vanishing before her eyes.
Finding the killer is Haley’s only hope . . . but it turns out the list of suspects is longer than her last credit card statement. To make matters worse, Haley’s kind-of-ex-boyfriend Ty is now a suspect in a different murder. Solving two murders while planning the perfect party—and always keeping her sights on a Sassy—won’t be easy . . . especially now that there’s more than one killer ready to select Haley’s final outfit!
My thoughts: I found this cozy mystery series completely by mistake a number of years ago in my library and needless to say have been following it ever since.
This is by far not my favorite cozy mystery series but it is a cute, fun series. Picture Sophie Kinsella’s series . . . with a much less annoying main character.
The characters are fun and overall it is just a nice, simply series.
