Silenced in Sequins (A Resale Boutique Mystery)
by Debra Sennefelder
As a fan of cozy mysteries and the Real Housewives franchise, this book was everything to me . . . Can’t wait for more of this series!

~The Book Decoder
. . . a great mystery full of good clothes and multi-layered characters. Makes a great read for fans of cozies and fashion.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
The mystery was well crafted with a variety of suspects with believable motives. Ms. Sennefelder fills this story with twist after twist . . .
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The mystery itself kept me guessing until the end . . . Kelly manages to find herself in the thick of things until the bitter end and is lucky that she didn’t end up dead herself…but not for lack of trying on the killer’s part.
Silenced in Sequins by Debra Sennefelder is an entertaining read that will keep you guessing from the first moment you open the book.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
SILENCED IN SEQUINS brings together guilty pleasures, lifestyles of the rich and wanna be famous, and murder in a charming mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Lots of complications and obstacles, possibly a love interest, and a good mix of tension.
~Christa Reads and Writes
The mystery is laid out fabulously with lots of suspects and the occasional red herring. I was sure someone else was the big bad, though honestly there was plenty to see in retrospect. I love that!
~I Read What You Write
The reality television angle was fun and added some humour, some nastiness and some food for thought. There are both likeable and unlikeable characters that add to the plot.
~Carla Loves To Read
The author does a wonderful job of developing her cast and giving personality to supporting “players” as well. There are several viable suspects and multiple motives.

Former Manhattan fashion buyer Kelly Quinn is turning her grandmother’s outdated consignment shop into her quaint hometown’s hot spot for upscale style—until her second-hand couture makes the scene of an ice-cold crime . . .
With her bottom line looking a little threadbare, Kelly is going all out to promote the Lucky Cove Resale Boutique. She’s counting on Black Friday to recover her start-up expenses—including a website and an advertising blitz. But the publicity is overkill when two warring divas, and one sparkly evening dress, thrust Kelly and her fledgling business into a scandal she can’t afford.
The gorgeous garment came to Kelly from the walk-in closets of Wendy Johnson, one of reality TV’s Long Island Ladies. When Wendy’s former co-star, Diana Delacourte, graces a Christmas gala in the dress that was once her rival’s, a very public catfight ensues. But is Wendy to blame when sequin-clad Diana turns up dead? Dodging the show’s ever-present cameras—and a detective’s stern warnings—Kelly hunts for a killer before the powerful celebrity-suspect makes good on her threats and rips her to shreds . . .
