Denver dry cleaner Mandy Dyer looks into a coat-check mix-up for her cousin and finds multiple murders. One of the best books of this series. Character development is coming along and the characters (except for Mandy's mom) aren't so anoying you want to throw something. :-)
A fun, "cozy" mystery - great light reading
Entertaining, keep my interest. I like this series.
I like the Mandy Dyer mystery series. Mandy owns a dry cleaner and that business seems to attract murder whether it is a body outside the back door or a mysterious object or note in a pocket of a jacket to be cleaned. She deals with inept or nosy employees, irritating customers, and the detectives investigating the murders that she has become involved in with equal determination and flair.
Mandy's cousin, Laura, has a problem. Someone has walked off with her coat leaving a coat with nothing but a dry cleaning slip as a clue as to the owner. Laura needs her coat back because of some undeveloped film in the pocket, so she asks Mandy for help in locating the owner of the coat so that Laura can get her coat back. You'd think this would be simple, but as always, Mandy manages to get herself into the midst of murder.
This book is a fairly quick read as this series tends to be, but it was enjoyable.
You can't go wrong with a Mandy Dyer story. She's funny, witty, and doesn't stop until she solves the mystery. A good clean read. This is book 7 and you don't need to read them in order, but to know the characters it is best to read the first book in the series before any others.
Dry cleaner Mandy Dyer investigates who took cousin Laura's coat.
Always eccentric characters in this series.
This is the first book in this series that I've read. I found it to be an enjoyable, fast read.
In her seventh adventure, Denver's intrepid dry-cleaner/sleuth, Mandy Dyer, encounters a baffling case of mistaken identity - or is it? After dining at a local mountaintop restaurant, Mandy's friend Laura discovers that someone has taken her coat and left another in its place. The only clue to the owner's identity is an unfamiliar dry-cleaning mark. Mandy's casual inquiries turn serious when a dead body is discovered dressed in Laura's missing coat.
Chilled To The Bone After an accidental coat switch at a popular Denver restaurant, dry cleaner Mandy Dyer is tasked with finding the person who walked off with her cousin Laura?s coat using an old fry cleaning slip. When Laura, a photographer anxious to retrieve the undeveloped film the coat?s pocket, is run down outside Mandy?s store, Mandy brushes it off as coincidence. After the second near fatal incident, well, it doesn?t take a professional cleaner to spot a nasty mess.
Two other people who dined at the Rendezview restaurant that night are murdered, and Mandy hopes the pictures still in Laura?s camera taken at the restaurant may provide a clue. But what do photos of diners, including several couples, a lone businesswoman and two out of focus figures, reveal about deadly intent? Only Mandy, with her unerring eye for detail, catches the subtle clue that reveals a stunning motive for murder?and a killer who?s just warming up?
