Description: Spunky crime-lite and the glitterati detail of a society column combine to shake up the Florida in KILLER GETAWAY, from former Philadelphia Magazine senior editor Amy Korman.
With a storm brewing in Bryn Mawr, PA, the Killer WASPs head south to Palm Beach, FL. And what could be better than fabulous friends, Lilly Pulitzer beachwear, frozen cocktails, and high society drama?
Kristin Clark, and her basset hound, Waffles, are ready to escape the doldrums of winter to bask in the warm Florida sun and dine at her friends’ new restaurant, Vicino. But when a rival restaurant undergoes a HGTV makeover and attempts to steal Vicinio’s spotlight and their patrons, the town is abuzz with gossip and Kristin and her friends–Bootsie, a nosy reporter, Holly, a chicken nugget heiress, and Sophie, the soon-to-be ex-wife of a mobster-have parties to attend.
Everything is going swimmingly in the glitz and glamour of Palm Beach until a bad batch of clams threatens to shut down the Vicino and their vacation for good. When it becomes clear that the clams may be more than an innocent mishap, the ladies must unravel the mystery before there are deadly consequences.
Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series!

My review: Killer Getaway By Amy Korman
This is interesting, lots of characters, good mystery and lots of cocktails.
I had a hard time connecting to the characters. Don't know it could be just the high life of spending lots of money and drinking so much.
Kristin Clark lives and work in Bryn Mawr, PA. It is a snowy winter, and business is slow. So when Kristin gets phone call from her friends that decide to go to Palm Beach, FL asking her to join them. She can stay in a guest house and where some of her friends designer clothes too.
Kristin, her dog Waffle and Bootsie who is a society reporter head to join her friends.
Holly is a heiress who spends like crazy. Sophie is getting a divorce from her mobster husband.
Holly and Sophie have just bought into a restraint Vicino. Someone tried to kill Holly and Jessica just two nights before Kristin arrives in FL.
There a lot of characters that live in Bryn Mawr that have gone down to Fl for the winter.
Killer Getaway is the second book in the Killer Wasps Mysteries series. Maybe if I had read the first book I could connect to the characters more.
I was given this ebook by author and agreed to give Killer Getaway and be part of it's blog tour.
