Publisher's Summary

What if you discovered your lively new friend wasn't really...alive?

Amanda Tucker is excited about opening her fashion design studio in Shops on Main, a charming old building in historic Abingdon, Virginia. She didn't realize a ghost came with the property! But soon Maxine "Max" Englebright, a young woman who died in 1930, isn't the only dead person at the retail complex. Mark Tinsley, a web designer with a know-it-all attitude who also rented space at Shops on Main, is shot in his office.

Amanda is afraid that one of her new "friends" and fellow small business owners is his killer, and Max is encouraging her to solve Mark's murder a la Nancy Drew. Easy for Max to want to investigate - the ghostly fashionista can't end up the killer's next victim!

Critic Reviews

“As a sucker for a fun ghost story, I can say Gayle Leeson’s DESIGNS ON MURDER scores on many levels including a spunky entrepreneur and a charming setting. Now that I’ve read the first one, I’ll be counting the days until the next in the series arrives.” (Lorna Barrett, author of the New York Times best-selling Booktown Mysteries)

"In DESIGNS ON MURDER, Gayle Leeson sketches a stylish plot accessorized with a spectral fashionista sidekick. This series debut is a delight!" (Diane Vallere, national best-selling author)

Started slowly but got better

At the beginning of this book, I didn't think I would finish it. But, I continued to listen and discovered that I liked it. I'll get the next book.

WHAT A GREAT NEW FIND

LOVE THIS SERIES AND READER! IT IS STRESS FREE READING WITH A WONDERFUL CAST OF CHARACTERS, AN ENTERTAINING SETTING, AND JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MYSTERY. OH, AND A FUNNY SPUNKY GHOST! MAX IS JUST "THE ELEPHANT'S EYEBROWS." I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS NEXT FOR AMANDA, GRANDPA, MAX, AND JASON (TROPICAL COLOR EYES - LOVE THAT DESCRIPTION).
