Book Review | Designer Dirty Laundry by Diane Vallere – The Samantha Kidd Mysteries Book 1

Date Published | January 3, 2021

Date Read | June 2021

Goodreads Rating | 4

Overall | This was a fun fashion cozy mystery. Not sure I believe a super billioniare designer would be located in her tiny hometown that she grew up in but otherwise, the characters were fun and the book went by fast. I still don’t understand why the main character would buy her parent’s house without telling them and also how she was able to move in without a mortgage. That didn’t make any logical real estate sense. My parents would’ve just given me the house but maybe I’m spoiled. Also you can’t take possession until you close and you can’t close until you get a mortgage.

Pros | Brave, independent main character

Cons | Some unbelievable parts but otherwise it was a fun read

Warnings | None

POV | First Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | No

Description | Ready to redesign her life, style expert Samantha Kidd accepts a job in her Pennsylvania hometown as a trend specialist.

And after the body disappears, she can’t help but pull on the mystery’s thread and unravel an entire wardrobe of suspects.
