"Stardom fades fast when you're on the line for murder, in this debut cozy mystery perfect for fans of Richard Osman and Jenn McKinlay. Jay Allan and Cindy Cooper were soap opera stars in the late '90s, a wholesome young husband-and-wife duo who combined musical talent with humor and charisma. When the truth about their sexual orientations came to light, their marriage and TV careers ended, but decades later they have remained friends. Together, they open Palm Springs' chicest movie memorabilia store, Hooray for Hollywood--but no customers and dwindling finances spell trouble. A Hail Mary arrives in the form of Yana Tosh, a ninety-year-old diva of the silver screen who has amassed a valuable collection of costumes and props and is looking to sell. But first, Jay and Cindy have to beat their competition, a vice president from a mega-auction house with ten times their resources. And when he winds up dead, they become prime suspects in the murder. With their freedom and livelihoods on the line, Jay and Cindy desperately need to clear their names. There are plenty of other potential suspects, but they'll have to solve it soon before they're forced to trade in their vintage costume collection for two orange jumpsuits"--Dust jacket flap.… (mere)

A Killing in Costumes by Zac Bissonnette
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Read: March 2023

After Hook, Line and Sinker, I didn’t know what to do with myself and couldn’t get into another romance, so decided to look for something completely different.

This was a cute little who-done-it mystery. I didn’t necessarily connect with the characters, but they were very likeable and witty. It was very different than what I’m used to but would definitely read the second book if/when it comes out. ( )

This was a fun debut, but since I actually read it in Palm Springs, it made it even more fun! It was easy to visualize the shops, spots and mid-century homes the characters visit during the course of the book. Jay and Cindy are former soap opera stars, former spouses and proud owners of a new adventure in Palm Springs, a movie memorabilia shop. The two remained best friends after each came out of the closet while still on the soap and the divorce hit the headlines. Yana Tosh, a true star of the old movies in the 50s and 60s, gives Jay and Cindy a chance to handle the sale of some of her extensive memorabilia collection. All of the characters are great. I loved Mary, their old friend who works at the store. The mystery was twisty and pretty hard to figure out--I didn't realize the end until it kind of happened. ( )

3.66 I liked this cozy mystery so much more than expected that I’ve already teased three friends with its upcoming publication. Read my full review here.

Publication is expected August 9.

The publisher's blurb is a good intro, so I won't repeat it. From that interesting beginning the story kicks into gear with a pair of amateurs sleuthing their way through a murder investigation, becoming suspects themselves, an attraction between Jay and the Homicide Detective, and occasional wallows in grief by Cindy who lost her beloved wife of almost twenty years to recurrent cancer. Lots of interesting characters, both supportive as well as fellow suspects. The underlying theme is the mad world of Hollywood memorabilia and the people who pay exorbitant amounts of money to be part of the dream. Great first in series! And, unlike TV, books only get better as the series unfolds!
I requested and received a free e-book copy from Crooked Lane Books via NetGalley. Thank you! 4-18-22
I have now been loaned the audio from Dreamscape Media via NetGalley, and WOW. It is even better in audio narrated alternately by Melanie Carey & Paul Bellatoni! I've not listened to Paul Bellantoni before, but he is worth listening to as he really adds to the fun and the drama. Melanie Carey has narrated several other books that I have and she is a delight to listen to because of her interpretattion of the characters as well as the tone of her voice. Guess I'll have to put a crowbar in my wallet and actually buy tis in audio. 7-29-22 ( )

Enjoyable cozy mystery about a dead antiques dealer and the couple trying to figure out to save themselves and their memorobilia business. I liked it! It was a fun, quick read with well drawn characters and an engaging mystery. I received an advance copy from author. ( )
