Praise
for
the
Crime
of
Fashion
mysteries

“Lacey
Smithsonian
skewers
Washington
with
style.”

—Elaine
Viets,
national bestselling author of
Murder
with
Reservations
“Devilishly
funny
.
.
.
Lacey
is
intelligent,
insightful
and
spun
k
y
...
.
Thoroughly likable.

The
Sun
(Bremerton,
WA)

(very
luxurious) whole cloth with the best of them
..
.

“A
hilarious

readers
will
find
themselves
laughing out loud. . . . Ellen Byerrum has a hit series on
her
hands with her latest
tale.”
—The Best
Reviews
“I
love
this series.
Lacey
is such a
wonderful
characte
r
...
. The plot has
many
twists and turns to
keep
you turning the pages to
discover
the truth. I highly recommend this book and
series.”

—Spinetingler
Magazine
“Wow.
A
simplistic
word,
but
one
that
describes
this
book
perfectly.
I
loved
it! I could not put it
down!
. . .
Lacey
is a scream, and
she’s
not nearly as wild and
funny
as some of her friends. The story line twists and turns, sending the reader from
Washington,
DC, to France, and
finally
to
New
Orleans
I
loved
everything
about the book from the characters to the plot to the
fastpaced
and witty
writing.”
—Roundtable
Reviews
“Lacey
is back, and in
fine
for
m
.
This is probably the most
complex,
most serious case that
Lacey
has
taken
on,
but
with her upbeat attitude and
finetuned
fashion
sense,
there’s
no one better suited to the task.
Traveling
with
Lacey
is both entertain ing and
dicey,
but
you’ll
be glad you made the
trip.”

clever
plotting and
snappy
