Persia Vanderbilt (isn’t that an amazing name?) works at her Aunt’s shop, Venus Envy, a bath and body products store on the island of Gull Harbor, near Seattle. One of her most frequent customers is the newly appointed Beauty Queen Lydia Wang. But when Lydia turns up dead at her shop, all of the island is thrown into an uproar. Police are following procedure, but the shop is a crime scene and it’s keeping customers away. Persia must take upon herself the search for the murderer in an attempt to clear her name and the reputation of her Aunt’s store.
The story is simple but the mystery is good. It keep me intrigued until the final reveal. Also, the book includes some recipes for handmade bath products. The characters are unique and very charismatic. All in all, a good read.
