This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:
 Chic Vanessa Giddings, founder and CEO of Panache, the largest employment agency on Long Island, falls into a coma in the designer shoe department of Bloomingdale’s . . . and dies. It’s not long before Judith Singer, former housewife, current widow, and local history professor, decides to investigate. She cannot believe the official ruling: that her wildly successful, confident, and iron-willed neighbor committed suicide with a drug overdose. Vanessa was buying shoes, and Judith knows accessorizing is a life-affirming act. So was it foul play?

Tracking the gossip about the late Vanessa and trusting her own acute instincts about human nature, Judith encounters more than a few surprises (including a big romantic one) as she investigates the death—and the life—of the misjudged mogul who turned out to have been more vulnerable than anyone guessed.


Here are my thoughts:
This book has an excellent storyline.  I love a good mystery so I really looked forward to diving in and seeing what could've possibly happened to Vanessa Giddings.  I won't lie- I got sucked into this one.  I just wish it hadn't been a short story.  I was definitely left wanting more and dying to know what really happened- both with the murder and between Judith and her former flame.

What are you currently reading??

That's what I hate about short stories-- they only serve to frustrate me that there's not more! But I read one of her books many years ago (Any Place I Hang My Hat, I think?) and LOVED it. She's a great writer.
