    This review was written for Dead Gorgeous, D.I. Costello Series #2.
    Elizabeth Flynn in her new book Dead Gorgeous Book Two in the A Mystery for D. I. Costello series published by Kregel Publications gives us another thriller with D. I. Angela Costello.

    From the back cover: Fashion model Kirsty Manners is young, beautiful, and recently dead

    Kirsty Manners is trying to make it as a model. As the in-house model for the Ivano King fashion house and girlfriend of Ian King, the man behind the label, she believes she is well on her way. But Kirsty is found dead in her flat one Sunday afternoon and D. I. Angela Costello is called to the scene.

    First enquiries center on the local gym where Kirsty, her dangerous ex-boyfriend, Darren Carpenter, and her jealous flatmate, Sandra Hodges, worked out. But things are more complicated. Ian King is considered to have lost his edge. Why then is he so buoyant about his latest collection for London Fashion Week? What about his new girlfriend, Eleanor Chandler, who openly admits to having a reason to wish Kirsty dead?

    Behind the gleaming smiles and flawless makeup of the glamorous fashion world, Angelas enquiries uncover theft, drug-addiction, prostitution, and imprisonmentand suddenly her own life could be in danger.

    Dead Gorgeous is a good old fashioned murder mystery. It never would have occurred to me that the world of high fashion could be such a dangerous place. Treachery, jealousy, prostitution and drug addiction are just some of what Angela is up against as she sets out to solve the murder of Kirsty. However this is not an easy case there are all sorts of twists and turns and just when you think you have the murderer book here comes another twist that proves you wrong. I have confidence in your abilities to solve cases however do not feel badly if you dont solve this one. Really tough case. I am glad I found Elizabeth Flynn and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

    This review was written for Dead Gorgeous, D.I. Costello Series #2.
    This is the second in the D. I. Costello series but this novel read well on its own. Costello has a number of suspects for the murder. As readers, we are kept wondering who the murder is until the very end.

    This is a good mystery novel. One learns quite a bit about the fashion world, designs and modeling. We also find out a little about a dark side of the industry, where women are used for tasks other than modeling. I felt that aspect of the novel was a bit of a loose end that could have been tied up with an arrest of the woman in charge.

    The writing is good but not what I would call outstanding. There was no snappy dialog nor beautifully formed sentences that caught my attention. There are no objectionable words nor bloody scenes so those who like cozy mysteries would like this one. I enjoyed reading it and am planning to read the first in the series too.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    This review was written for Dead Gorgeous, D.I. Costello Series #2.
    I really enjoyed this book!! I wasn't sure what to expect this is a first from this author for me but it had good suspense that kept me turning the page. Set in the drama of the modeling world, a murder might seem like it started from a love triangle but did it? I really wasn't sure where the book was leading and the story seemed to get more and more detailed. I loved the details and Angela Costello is a great character. The story didn't seem over the top just more realistic. There are a lot of layers to this book so sometimes I had to re-read a few sentences. I enjoyed the dialogue and there is a bit of humor as well. I think this book is a well rounded read and for some suspense I highly recommend!!
