Beauty to Die For is a Spa Mystery.
It is a good who dun it mystery that kept me guessing till the end. I did not put the book down till I finshed it.
It is a clean read with a bit of a Christian flavor not much to turn anyone off.
Juliette Taylor was a supermodel who at the height of her career walked away from the money to choose a different path that made her happier.
Now she has a skin care company that sales mostly through spas. Now thier is someone
making fakes of her products and they are fighting back.
Juliette also does retreats and she has schedualed one that is for Christian women that give more and need to take time to take care of themselves too.
On her way to prepare the spa for her retreat thier she runs into a former supermodel she worked with years ago Raven. Raven saw her thier and yelled she will murder her if she thinks she can take it from her.
Raven treats everyone to rants but she does tip well. Only has one friend at the spa that she has been coming for decades always twice a year same time. Raven is found dead during a treatment with one of Juliette's products.
At the same time the FBI has found Juliette's name on a terrorist list with famous people. So they are wondering why it is thier. One member of the task force wants to warn and protect her. Marcus Stone met her years ago and that day changed both thier lives. He sees she is hosting a spa retreat and gets his mother to go with him so he can see Juliette again, warn her somehow without telling her about FBI taskforce and what they found.
I would read more mysteries with Kim and Mindy wrote in the future. It made the spa, the life of a supermodel seam real to me. I would love to go on a spa retreat like they wrote about without the murder of course.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
