Eve Dallas gets ready for her wedding to Roarke.
Mavis’ new serious main squeeze is a fashion designer, who unfortunately has a jealous ex-girlfriend who is unfortunately supposed to be the lead model in his break-out showing of his designs.
To complicate things (of course) the supermodel is murdered, and both Mavis and Leonardo are suspects. Peabody has a brief fling with a handsome cowboy cop from Illegals – picture Matthew McConaghey.
It’s nice in these early books that the core characters are part of the cases – rather than being the cast of characters helping Eve through the puzzles.
