Join amateur sleuth/fashionista Samantha Kidd as she takes on social media, a case involving a pretzel heiress, and the world of denim. It’s fashion with a twist in this fourth omnibus of smart and stylish mysteries by national bestselling author Diane Vallere. SLAY RIDE - Book #10 When fashion insider Samantha Kidd lands a temporary assignment as a social media influencer two weeks before Christmas, she dives into the world of lifestyle goals. The job provides props to encourage drool-worthy posts, but when a colleague goes missing, the illusion of the perfect life fades like an out-of-date filter. The only clues are found on his Instagram timeline, which Samantha knows has been staged. Maintaining appearances takes a back seat to finding the missing man, but when the lines between authenticity and hype are blurred, she’ll either find the truth … or drown in a sea of hashtags. Can Samantha keep murder from becoming a trending topic? TOUGH LUXE - Book #11 Fashionista Samantha Kidd’s new role as style columnist for the local paper encourages her to attend events and discover new trends. But when an out-of-the-blue invitation to visit an acquaintance arrives, standing out is the last thing she wants. The acquaintance is the heiress to a pretzel fortune—or she would be if she were free. Instead, she’s quietly serving a double life sentence after being convicted of killing her media mogul husband. When new evidence surfaces, the heiress is ready to break her silence. But while the press lines up to get the scoop (and the ratings!), Samantha can’t help wondering who the victim is in this scenario. And after hearing the heiress’s story firsthand, Sam suspects the wrong person was locked up. If she’s right, a killer's on the loose and will stop at nothing to silence Samantha too. Can Samantha infiltrate the high life to expose a down and dirty crime? FAHRENHEIT 501 - Book #12 When Samantha Kidd is invited to fill a vacated spot in a secret society, she jumps at the chance. The group’s mission is to preserve famous fashion patterns through memorization and pass them down to future generations, but Samantha’s dreams of Chanel jackets and Halston dresses are dashed when she’s assigned the 501 jean. And when the retiring denim expert turns up dead, she fears there’s more than fashion history at stake. Garments from the deceased member’s estate are linked to a series of deadly jean jackings, and Samantha questions everything. Was the member’s death an admission of guilt or vigilante justice? As she pulls at the threads of the investigation, she finds the fabric of her secret society fraying at the seams. Can Samantha unzip the facts or will the truth stay buttoned up forever?

National bestselling cozy mystery author Diane Vallere brings you a mod, mod, mod, mod murder in book thirteen of the humorous Samantha Kidd mystery series! Stark Raving Mod is the thirteenth killer fashion mystery featuring the always effervescent Samantha Kidd. If you like spy stories, zany capers, and resourceful amateur sleuths, you'll love Diane Vallere's latest humorous mystery. Samantha Kidd has gotten the swing of sleuthing, but she's an absolute beginner when it comes to being a spy... When Samantha Kidd places the winning bid on a mystery trunk from the estate of a sixties pop star, she’s over the moon—until she opens it and discovers more than mod fashions: top secret papers that suggest something more menacing than miniskirts. Repeated attempts to steal the trunk motivate Samantha to sell it—but not until after she's removed the questionable items. But when the trunk’s new owner is found dead with the singer’s record in his hand, even Nancy Sinatra’s boots can’t make Samantha walk away. Turning the tables on mods, rockers, and bad guys galore may require a little help from her friends, but if they fail, there’s no room for an encore. Can Samantha put a spin on the classic sixties spy story, or will the needle drop before she gets into her groove? ​ For readers who like: humorous mysteries, cozy mysteries, amateur sleuths, women sleuths, mystery with humor, fashionable fiction, fashionable mysteries, friendship fiction, traditional mysteries, Pennsylvania fiction, stylish sleuths, funny mysteries, personal growth fiction, crime fiction, murder mysteries, mysteries set in Pennsylvania, fashionable mysteries, mystery with fashion, caper, caper mystery Previously published under the series title "Style & Error" and "Style in a Small Town" mysteries.
