A Killer Closet
by Paula Paul

A very well written story and well developed characters. This was a guessing game for me to figure out who done the killing. A great mystery to put the pieces together to.
~Books, Dreams, Life

I couldn’t put the book down. I’m definitely looking forward to the sequel!
~Island Confidential

Overall I enjoyed the story and thought the author gave readers a good mystery with lots of action. I did appreciate the description the author gave of Santa Fe and made it easy to picture the mountains and beautiful scenery .
~Texas Book-aholic

A KILLER CLOSET is a cozy mystery with a sharp and poignant emotional edge.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

This book was a quick read, engaging, full of mystery and with touching characters, the only problem was the two bodies in the closet!

…the book was interesting. There are the “little old ladies” that have no concept of danger especially when they put themselves in the middle of it…
~Storeybook Reviews

It’s an intriguing and engaging mystery, catches you from the first page and it’s hard to put it down.

I enjoyed this book and had no idea where Ms. Paul was headed with the mystery. I found myself digging deeper until the mystery was solved.

A Killer Closet: A Mystery

Genre – Cozy Mystery

Publisher: Alibi (October 11, 2016)




In a fashionably cozy short mystery novel, Paula Paul introduces a tenacious heroine who leaves big-city life behind and returns to picturesque Santa Fe, New Mexico—where murder lands on her doorstep.

Irene Seligman loves the warmth and beauty of her Southwest hometown, but only one thing could make her quit her prestigious job as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan to return there: the guilt applied by her demanding mother, Adelle. After Adelle’s most recent husband dies, leaving her with nothing, Irene decides to take a break from prosecuting criminals to move back to Santa Fe and open an upscale consignment store. With Irene’s determination and her mother’s eye for haute couture, they’re sure to make a killing.

But on the day of the grand opening, Irene discovers the body of one of Adelle’s friends in her storeroom. And although the intrigue causes business to boom, when someone else from Adelle’s social circle is murdered, Irene begins to suspect her mother might be in danger too. Ever the protective daughter, Irene investigates her mother’s friends, suspicious that they’re hiding more than designer clothes in their closets. But as she gets closer to uncovering some real skeletons, Irene might not live to regret coming home again.
