Killer Image by Wendy Tyson

Publisher: Henery Press

Goodreads:  As Philadelphia’s premier image consultant, Allison Campbell helps others reinvent themselves, but her most successful transformation was her own after a scandal nearly ruined her. Now she moves in a world of powerful executives, wealthy, eccentric ex-wives and twisted ethics. 

When Allison’s latest Main Line client, the fifteen-year-old Goth daughter of a White House hopeful, is accused of the ritualistic murder of a local divorce attorney, Allison fights to prove her client’s innocence when no one else will. But unraveling the truth brings specters from her own past. And in a place where image is everything, the ability to distinguish what’s real from the façade may be the only thing that keeps Allison alive.



Kritters Thoughts:  A great mix of chick lit and mystery had me reading this book in only one day!  Allison was such a great character, she had wit and realism and I wouldn't mind trying out her profession!  She is oddly connected to a murder that is not only in her neighborhood, but connected through a few people (maybe a little too connected).  And she forgoes her day job to help find the killer while also trying to protect a client/girl.  

The twists and turns in the mystery were perfectly timed.  I had an inkling about the killer, but wasn't quite satisfied with my guess and I loved that.  It wasn't obvious, but also wasn't completely out of left field - Wendy Tyson hit the right notes for me in this book.  I will be on the look out for the next in this series.

I loved the mix of genres and enjoyed that the mystery wasn't too gooie and the chick lit wasn't too sweet - a perfect mixture!


Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (good thing this is the first in a series)
