national best-selling authors each contribute a short mystery for
Drop-Dead Blonde, which contains four mysteries where a
main character in each story, and at times a victim, is blonde.
These blondes are sassy fair-haired women with style, men and money
dropping at their feet. Everyone knows the saying that blondes have
more fun, but these golden-haired sirens have secrets to hide and
scores to settle.
Slay Belles by Nancy Martin, The Blackbird Sisters work
together to solve a murder mystery related to a personal shopper
of a high-end department store. Killer Blondes by Elaine
Viets is a new Dead-End Job story that throws two blondes together
in a “battle of the blondes” in the corporate world.
Dead Blondes Tell No Tales by Denise Swanson is part of
the Scumble River mystery series where Skye Denison solves a mysterious
disappearance and gets involved in a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like
contest. My favorite mystery of the four was Blind Sighted
by Victoria Laurie where professional psychic Abby Cooper attends
a psychic convention in Florida and ends up solving a murder.
the four mysteries fit nicely together in one book with the “blonde
theme” running throughout each mystery, each author has her
own unique style. These mysteries have a cozy feel with a solid
element of suspense throughout each, along with funny and interesting
characters. Drop-Dead Blonde is a fun, entertaining read
that is highly recommended to mysteries fans.
