Cutler's shop, "Vintage Magic," is a highly successful
clothing boutique, catering as you can obviously guess, to
those who adore vintage clothing. Maddie is in her element,
finding, repairing, and selling these well-loved fashions
to people who truly appreciate them.
however, her work runs deeper than her title of shop proprietor
does. You see, Maddie is inflicted- or is she blessed- with
visions that come to her when she touches items of clothing
that have deep emotions or trauma embedded in their very fabric.
This has led her into trouble in the past, and does so again
in "Tulle Death Do us Part."
of a young woman who disappeared into the ocean in 1973 is
haunting Maddie's present. During a vision/ transportation
back to that time, she witnessed a group of people planning
a cover up. It could be that Maddie's magic touch is the only
way to get to the truth.
It just so happens Maddie will be involved in some judging
work at the country club's Golden Jubilee, and that woman,
Robin O'Dowd, was presumed drowned the day after the Silver
Jubilee. Will events come full circle and justice for Robin
to confess I am such a huge fan of this series that I find
it hard not to gush. I love the characters, the believable
storylines, the fashion talk, and the supernatural elements.
There are romances on track, those gone awry and familial
relationships that continue to evolve.
I have savored every book in the series, you do not need to
read the others to enjoy this book. It's a fabulous summer
read, and I believe it would appeal to teenage girls, college
kids, and their moms. Anyone who fancies vintage fashions
will be on cloud nine with all the descriptions and details
given. Lest I forget- the cover art is beautiful too! In this
case, you can judge a book by its cover- the words live up
to the picture and then some!
