|Plot Summary of Fashion Victim|
Kensington, Dec 2002, 22.00, 288 pp.
Fashion stylist Dallas O'Connor is in Paris when she gets a call from her agent with an assignment in Bimini in the Caribbean. If she accept the job, which is very high paying, she will be the stylist for a five women rock band, Fate of Paradise, who is going to cut their first video. Dallas accepts the plum job and she has unlimited funds to dress the girls and is delighted they are all going to be staying at a palace.
When she arrives, the islanders tell her she is wearing Death on her face. She laughs it off, enjoying the rich food, the tropical beach and tries to ignore the sexy chef who wants to get to know her. What she can't ignore is the dead body she finds on the beach but when she convinces the members of the group to take a look the body is gone. As time passes, Dallas finds a clue that leads her to believe the others are lying to her but if they are, she doesn't have a clue why.
The heroine of FASHION VICTIM is well known in her field and is not owned by the rich and famous who are her clients. She is adorable and endearing, someone the readers will like to get to know in further novels in the series. Chloe Green has constructed a who-done-it that is so complicated readers won't be able to guess what roles all the characters are really playing.
