All Portland, Oregon, vintage clothing store owner Joanna Hayworth wants to do is turn her back on the modern world and retreat into a carefully curated life of satin cocktail gowns, icy martinis, and old movies. But when Joanna finds a key in a 1930s Lanvin coat cast off by an ex-showgirl, everything changes. The elderly woman turns up dead, and Joanna is pulled into a long-ago drama of back room deals, blackmail, and lost love. She must find a very real—and present day—killer before she becomes his next victim.

The Lanvin Murders sounded boring, but...
Not a book I normally read, but I really liked the characters in this book. In fact, it was hard for me to put this book down. I plan on reading more books by this author.
Really interesting cozy mystery
This book is better than it ought to be. Well paced and the plot is good. I've read best sellers that were pitiful and little known books like this one that are enjoyable. This author should keep writing.
Can't stop reading
A really interesting book with a story line that just keeps developing with each page read. A lot of characters to keep track of, but overall a well developed story.
