Designs On Murder:
A Ghostly Fashionista Mystery
by Gayle Leeson

Wow, just WOW! Gayle Leeson has written a book that is the total Cat’s Pyjamas! Murder, Ghosts, and Fashion … oh MY!
~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog

Fashion, a saucy ghost, and a bit of romance provide a rich backdrop to an intriguing mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

When you read this book (notice I didn’t say “if”!) you will want to read the author’s notes because she provides detail for Max’s actions and reactions based on when she lived in the 20s. I appreciated the research she did for this book and I am sure you will too.
~Storeybook Reviews

Designs on Murder is an entertaining cozy mystery. Amanda Tucker and Max Englebright are delightful characters.
~The Avid Reader

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through her words, I could picture the clothing being designed and the stores in Shops on Main.
~MJB Reviewers

I loved the cast of characters.
~Nadaness In Motion

Definitely one of the most entertaining cozy mysteries I’ve read, in a subgenre that consistently produces excellently, DESIGNS ON MURDER initiates what I’m sure will be one of my favourite cozy mystery series.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

For a first in series, this book has everything I could want.
~Laura’s Interests

This book is just full of charm, mystery, and characters we can all get attached to . . . I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.

~Baroness’ Book Trove

I absolutely adored this mystery with its sassy dialogue, well-written storyline and delightful characters.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

It’s a fast-paced mystery that I devoured.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

Gayle brought all these characters to life for me very well. I love a book that makes me feel like I am watching everything that is happening.
~I’m All About Books

As always, Gayle delivered another great story and series with this one . . . The story flowed well making a quick and easy read. I am anxiously anticipating the next in this quirky series.

What if you discovered your lively new friend wasn’t really…alive?

Amanda Tucker is excited about opening her fashion design studio in Shops On Main, a charming old building in historic Abingdon, Virginia. She didn’t realize a ghost came with the property! But soon Maxine “Max” Englebright, a young woman who died in 1930, isn’t the only dead person at the retail complex. Mark Tinsley, a web designer with a know-it-all attitude who also rented space at Shops On Main, is shot in his office.

Amanda is afraid that one of her new “friends” and fellow small business owners is his killer, and Max is encouraging her to solve Mark’s murder a la Nancy Drew. Easy for Max to want to investigate–the ghostly fashionista can’t end up the killer’s next victim!
