Secret shopper Josie Marcus can blend in at any store, but disappearing isn’t an option when her best friend’s husband is suspected of murder…
Josie has an eye for the finer things in life. Unfortunately, her wallet can’t keep up—as a single mom and mystery shopper, she won’t be moving out of St. Louis’s suburbs anytime soon. Good thing her best friend Alyce Bohannon doesn’t mind sharing a taste of the high life in her posh gated community, Wood Winds. But death comes at every price point and when Alyce’s neighbor, well-heeled scarf designer Halley Hardwicke, is murdered, the neighborhood buzzes with ugly gossip.
Talk is cheap…until the detectives begin questioning Alyce’s husband, Jake, about the crime. So Josie decides to do a little sleuthing of her own. With Alyce’s help, Josie goes undercover in swanky suburbia to unravel the secrets of the cliquey Wood Winds wives, untangle Jake from the murder investigation, and uncover the truth before the killer snags another victim.
