Can I tell you how excited I am to read a murder mystery set in my hometown? (Yeah, alright, Brooklyn IS in the house!) And not one that just shrugs and assumes that murders happen all the time in Brooklyn, so who cares? But a mystery in which even single women do feel safe in Brooklyn, so when women start getting killed, it is a big deal. And can I tell you how excited I am by our plucky amateur sleuth, Lydia McKenzie? How thrilled I am that she’s clever and creative and stylish to boot! And that she’s independent enough to be far more concerned with saving her friends, solving the murders and salvaging her own career than she is with finding a man. How refreshing is that!
And can I tell you how entertained I was by the colorful cast of characters that populates POSED FOR MURDER? Funky, creative types – like southern belle turned city gal, Georgia Rae, dark and unreadable Detective Romero, the quirky, yet lovable D’Angelo family, and all the requisite marginal types of an emerging NYC art scene.
Can I tell you how happy I am for Meredith and the debut of POSED FOR MURDER? It was already chosen as the winner of St. Martin’s/Malice Domestic Best Traditional First Mystery Award. Mystery fans are going to love it. And hopefully, Meredith is busy at work crafting Lydia McKenzie’s next adventure.
