We haven’t done book reviews on Mid-Century style yet, but perhaps that’s because we didn’t know “Pillow Stalk” was out there. Written by Diane Vallere, this book is custom made for Mid-Century fanatics who enjoy a good cozy mystery!
Born on the same date, Interior Decorator Madison Night has modeled her life after Doris Day, but when a killer targets women dressed like the bubbly actress, Madison’s signature sixties style places her in the middle of a homicide investigation.
The local hunky and mysterious detective connects the new crimes to a twenty-year old cold case, and Madison’s long-trusted contractor (who’s ironically also hunky and mysterious) emerges as the leading suspect.
The body count piles up like the retro plush velvet pillows the victims are smothered with!
There are tons of references to 60’s Hollywood stars, fabulous retro furniture and accessories and the main character dresses in fabulous retro outfits!
About the Author: “I grew up reading both Trixie Belden mysteries and Vogue magazine and learned how to spot a counterfeiting ring and accessorize a wardrobe. Now I use that knowledge to dream up plots for the Style & Error Mystery Series, the Mad for Mod Mystery Series, and the upcoming Fabric Store Series for Berkley Prime Crime. I still love accessories, only now some of them are accessories to murder. Fun Fact: I didn’t see my first Doris Day movie until I was 38 yrs old. It was Hitchcock’s THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. I enjoyed Ms. Day’s performance so much I immediately rented Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back, and I was hooked!”Be sure to check out the book here:
