New Release+Review: Accessories to Die For: A Mystery (Irene's Closet) by Paula Paul

Accessories to Die For: A Mystery (Irene's Closet) by [Paul, Paula]



Good old-fashioned murder lurks behind the Old World charm of Santa Fe, New Mexico. And nobody knows that better than former attorney turned consignment-shop owner—and part-time amateur sleuth—Irene Seligman.

When New York assistant DA Irene Seligman moved home to take care of her demanding mother, Adelle, she thought she was leaving a world of corruption and violence behind. But after opening her store, Irene’s Closet, and getting reacquainted with the locals, she learns that something’s rotten in sunny Santa Fe. Even upstanding citizens like her friend Juanita Calabaza, a Native American artisan, can’t seem to escape the decidedly unfashionable surge in crime.

Juanita’s handcrafted jewelry has been known to catch the eye of many a tourist on the plaza in Santa Fe’s historic district. But lately she’s been attracting the wrong kind of attention . . . from the police. With her son missing after falling in with a bad crowd, Juanita foretells the death of one of his associates—which comes back to haunt her when the scumbag actually turns up dead. Now Juanita’s trading in her turquoise beads for an orange jumpsuit, and Irene will need to call upon all her old investigative skills to clear Juanita’s name—before her friend pays the ultimate price.

Paula Paul’s delightful mysteries featuring Irene Seligman can be read together or separately:

This is my first time reading anything in the cozy mystery genre and it was a good read! This book is billed as a standalone but I think I would have enjoyed it much better if I read the first book and would have gotten more of a understanding of the characters. This was my first time reading anything by this author and I enjoyed her storytelling and writing style. The plot held my attention and I couldn’t stop reading until the book was over. The author wrote in such a way that I felt I was in Santa Fe and I loved her description to detail throughout the story. I will definitely be checking out more books from this author.
