Product Description

Juliette Taylor walked away from her career as a supermodel twenty-five years ago. Now approaching fifty - an emotionally complex milestone -- she co-owns a beauty supply company that makes skincare products for salons and spas. Her niche is pampering Christian women who usually spend more time caring for others than for themselves under the slogan:"Isn't it time someone took care of YOU for a change?"

When Juliette arrives at the Palm Grotto Spa to host a spiritual retreat, she runs into an old modeling colleague, Raven, who had always been disliked in the industry for many reasons. She isn't there for the retreat; in fact, her presence at the spa is somewhat mysterious.

Not long after Raven makes a cryptic threat to Juliette, the unsympatheticback-then beauty is found dead, poisoned by something in the green clayof a chai soy wrap. The following morning, a banner for the retreat hasbeen unceremoniously altered:

It's your turn to be nurtured, to be restored . . . to be murdered.

Suspicion is directed at Juliette who has history with Raven and certainlyknows how to use beauty products. But for murder?! Now she must findthe real killer before the police really take care of her.

    Book Summary: Juliette Taylor walked away from her career as a supermodel twenty-five years ago. Now approaching fifty - an emotionally complex milestone -- she co-owns a beauty supply company that makes skincare products for salons and spas. Her niche is pampering Christian women who usually spend more time caring for others than for themselves under the slogan: Isn't it time someone took care of YOU for a change? When Juliette arrives at the Palm Grotto Spa to host a spiritual retreat, she runs into an old modeling colleague, Raven, who had always been disliked in the industry for many reasons. She isn't there for the retreat; in fact, her presence at the spa is somewhat mysterious. Not long after Raven makes a cryptic threat to Juliette, the unsympathetic back-then beauty is found dead, poisoned by something in the green clay of a chai soy wrap. The following morning, a banner for the retreat has been unceremoniously altered: It's your turn to be nurtured, to be restored . . . to be murdered. Suspicion is directed at Juliette who has history with Raven and certainly knows how to use beauty products. But for murder?! Now she must find the real killer before the police really take care of her.

    Review: I found some the beginning to be slow. There was much background that merged with the present. That was nicely done overall. I found the mystery to be small in comparison to the romance. The mystery was actually well woven into the story. I thought that the suspense of the mystery could have been increased to make it a page turner. The ending was great and made reading the entire book fantastic. I found Marcus to be a little too good to be true. Didi, Crystal and the Stone family were great. They helped move the story along and were extremely believable. I am looking forward to the next book in the series with great anticipation of how the characters will continue in their relationships with each other, especially Didi and Marcus. While I would like more suspense I do think the way it was written is the way real mysteries unfold with little suspense and a lot of timing. I did guess who did it but more out of pure guessing than sleuthing. The ending brought me to tears and totally changed how I viewed the entire book.

    I would like to thank Net Galley and B & H Publishing Group for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    This fun read has much more depth than I was expecting. I enjoyed it a lot. Not only is it entertaining, it is also thought-provoking. The setting is a beautiful and plush, high-dollar spa in the Southwest. The main characters are realistic and I found myself thinking, "What would I do in that situation?" There is a large cast of minor characters with various quirks and interesting personalities. The main plot has many twists, turns, and sub-plots—definitely not a quick "who-done-it". If you like a good romance mixed with a suspenseful murder mystery, I recommend Beauty to Die For.

    Beauty to Die for is a fun mystery that sweeps readers behind the scenes into the world of beauty products and counterfeit goods. When Juliette Taylor walked away from her life as a supermodel, she created a new life as the queen of a line of beauty products. Her life is good, but she still longs for the man who got away. Recently her company has been targeted by counterfeit goods. Now she's at a spa for a retreat, and a former friend and supermodel is killed. Juliette finds herself tangling with a complex web as she tries to uncover what happened to her former friend and rival. There's a strong love interest. My favorite part though was the spiritual thread that highlighted the challenge many women have of letting go of their mounds of service and letting others give to them. All in all I enjoyed this book and look forward to another by this duo.

    It reminds me of Mindy's the Trouble with Tulip series.
