Continuation of fashion writer mysteries with amusing fashion column breaks. Sound writing and characterization and an appealing nod to vintage clothes ( I am not a clothes person myself but the author's interest and love for the subject comes across in a good way). Not too hard, not too romantic and interesting with some humor. A good solid intrepid reporter/mystery type which is worth dipping into to see if it is your cup of tea.

The series is so fun and enjoyable! Lacey, the lead detective/journalist maskes me laugh out loud!

I am enjoying this series. A lot of fun. The internal "Fashion Bites" are great!

In this one Lacey covers a fashion museum opening in Washington D.C. She wears her vintage Hugh Bentley suit left to her by her Aunt Mimi. It is recognized by the designer, which pulls Lacey into a new mystery. There is a missing intern, and a disappearance from her Aunt's day. Can they be related? And what about the robbery of the Bentley's boutique? And what about Vic and their relationship! Of course we also find Stella in this one. And meet Miguel.

Designer Knockoff, book 2 in the Crimes of Fashion cozy mystery series is even better than the first. When an employee of the Bentley fashion mogul turns up dead, the clues lead to a sixty year old missing persons case, that hits close to home for Lacy.
I thought the mystery was better than the first book. The fact that there were two mysteries going on kept you guessing that much more. I also thought that the motives seemed more believable. I could envision murders like this really taking place.

each book gets better and better. This is a series and I think best read in order. But the books have a great plot, lots of good humor, and wonderful characters.

In the course of covering the opening of a fashion museum for the "Eye Street Observer, Lacey uncovers a long-unsolved mystery that turns out to be much more than a crime of fashion.

Almost finished, see my rieview of Book 1 "Killer Hair" I like the articles on fashion in the story. Will probably take a break before reading the next in the series. I did like book 2 more than the first one in the series. ;o)

When Lacey learns that a new fashion museum will soon grace decidedly unfashionable D.C. it's more than a good story--it's a chance to show off her vintage Hugh Bently suit. And it's not long before the dapper designer himself spots Lacey in the crowd. A reporter at heart, she manages to get all the juicy details about his past--including a long-unsolved mystery about a missing employee. Could it be linked to the disappearance of a Washington intern or the recent Bentley boutique robbery? Lacey sets out to unravel the murderous details in a fabric of lies, greed and (gasp!) very bad taste....
