Armoires and Arsenic by Cassie Page (50)

Idyllic, Darling Valley was, or so Olivia thought when she first saw the pristine town nestled in the hills outside of San Francisco. Just the place to begin over. Away from crazy LA, her hectic architectural design business, and Brooks Baker, world renowned architect and the man who broke her heart. Even the name, Darling Valley, promised peace, quiet, and the promise of a fabulous makeover for her career. The blogs called it Billionaire Hollow, because Darling Valley was home to the largest contingent of billionaires in the world. They built their weekend mansions high in the hills overlooking the town, and Olivia planned to make a killing decorating them. 

Until a killing of another kind appeared on her doorstep. 

Get to know Olivia M. Granville, OMG for short, her bizarrely couture-minded friend Tuesday, her adorable sidekick, Cody, the handsome Detective Richards, and the saints and scoundrels of Darling Valley. Along the way, see if you can figure out who put the deadly surprise in Olivia’s $30,000 antique armoire. Because somebody has to or OMG will lose her brand new business and much more in this fast-paced, stylish cozy.

REVIEW:
Cute.
Yeah, a cozy that's cute.
The setting was a nice little town, something like the Hamptons, and the mystery was not really all that mysterious. I pretty much guessed who the bad guy was from the get-go, but really didn't think I would be right.  I was half right any way, since I didn't see the other half and that was nice to still be surprised in the end.
A good start to the series, not mind-blowing, but good. All you cozy lovers out there will enjoy it for sure.
I would definitely read book 2.

3/5
