Going Out in Style (Dallas O'Connor, Bk 1)
Going Out in Style - Dallas O'Connor, Bk 1 Author:Chloe Green Meet Dallas O'Connor, fashion stylist for Texas' premier retail establishment, The Store. In an industry built on illusion, she's the real deal -a down-to-earth Texas beauty with a talent for creating the gorgeous visions that sell expensive clothes- and a real knack for solving mysteries. In her debut case, the savvy Dallas di... more »scovers that in the backstabbing business of fashion, jealousy and revenge are suddenly in vogue.
At the ungodly hour of 5:45 a.m., Dallas has nothing more on her mind than making coffee and prepping the final day's shooting for the summer catalogue. But the surreal display that greets her on the set --a dead, nude model who was the most promising face of the year, and a wild-eyed, knife-wielding Raul Domingo, the Cuban artist whom Dallas hired for the shoot-- isn't her idea of a great fashion spread. And when Raul takes off, leaving Dallas alone at the crime scene, the police peg her as their number one suspect. Using her widespread network of Texas friends and family to get to the bottom of it all, Dallas recognizes a perfect set-up when she sees one. Now her only chance of beating a murder rap is to go on the run with the self-proclaimed innocent Raul, a sexy man who could grace the covers of GQ ... or be a deranged killer.
It's an investigation that takes her deep into the underbelly of a glittering domain where models are washed up at twenty-one, selling lipstick is a billion-dollar snake pit, and you're only as good as your last assignment. But Dallas is up to the challenge. She'd better be, because the murderer has designs to silence Dallas -- whose next fashion tip could be what to wear with cement shoes?
Filled with delicious, behind-the-scenes details and knockout beauty advice that could only come from a fashion insider, Going Out In Style marks the debut of a fast-paced, stylish new series with a hip sleuth who proves crime-solving has never looked better.« less
