    Not too bad, I rather like the story What bothers me a bit is that I still don t feel that I really KNOW Lacey Not like I know Stephanie Plum, Precious Ramotswe and lots of other female sleuths whom I ve faithfully followed for years Those I can easily identify with, but not with Lacey Perhaps it s me Or could it be the name, Smithsonian Like an unintendedly Armenian sounding accident of a good, honest English name.I do enjoy the snarky fashion comments like the one about bland Burberry It helps [...]

    This is the third in her Crime of Fashion mystery series Chick lit meets mystery with tons of wit, snide humor, sarcasm and fun I ve enjoyed all three books This one centers around an ugly duckling turned supermodel through an extreme makeover, who predicts her murder right before it happens Lacey our journalist herione gets drug into finding out through her amazing fashion clues who did it.

    Not going to win any awards of excellence but it s a fun, easy read with fairly good writing Someone who knows about Colorado, Washington D.C and 1940s culture will appreciate this series on a deeper level than those with little or no knowledge I only have one criticism enough with the eyebrows already It s a pet peeve of mine when authors overuse the image of eyebrows arching to describe intrigue or surprise.

    Hostile Makeover is the third instalment in the Crime of Fashion Series by Ellen Byerrum published in August of 2005 The is also the second Lifetime Movie that was made based of the book in the series I wonder why the remaining books werent made into movies, would have loved to watch them Lacey Smithsonian the heroine of the series works for the paper The Eye Street Observer as a fashion reporter in Washington, D.C a city she keeps calling as The City Fashion Forgot Lacey snags another opportuni [...]

    Nice murder mystery story murder victim is a woman who underwent radical plastic surgery on a reality show to end up a raving beauty and became a super model only to develop a shrewish personality craving attention and insulting everyone around her The radical life changing surgery has caused havoc than anyone could possibly have imagined, as the story unfolds.Setting in Washington D.C at a small news reporting office Heroine is Lacey Smithsonian, the fashion column writer, who keeps stumbling [...]

    Maybe my expectations were too high after I enjoyed the 2nd book in the series so much, but I found this book to be a bit of a letdown There is nothing really bad about it, it just didn t capture my attention as the previous book in the series did I once again loved the DC references, and the scenes with the family what was so bad about mom and sis anyway made the end enjoyable than the beginning Overall, it was just an ok read, nothing to write home about, and not one I will read again.

    Another good mystery with great characters Lacey s family comes to town around the same time that a model who was madeover on national TV, and whose fiance died suspiciously, is threaten Mandy Manville begs Lacey to find her would be killer before she dies or after.Armed with Lethal Kick Smithsonian, her sister, and her nine iron wielding mother, Lacey hunts down the truth following a set of fashion clues and dealing with her boyfriend s ex wife at the same time.

    This is a cute series of mysteries featuring a journalist who appreciates 40 s fashion style.I saw this movie on Lifetime liked it The writing style is fun flirty, but I did enjoy the movie I appreciate that Byerrum is from the DC area, so I liked going back home for a little bit I recommend it as a beach read.

    12 27 13 Super easy read for those times you just want a quick book Read it in a night Average story and average characters Writing felt very amateurish Still it fits the bill if you re going for a fast easy filler book.

    The writing is not that interesting, there are a ton of cliches and the characters names are all unbelievable I m giving up on this one

    This is an interesting and funny romp that examines the extremes some people go to in order to find beauty.

    Enjoyed this book, it is interesting how fasion and murder get intertwined Nothing serious here, just a good fun read.

    Book 28 read in 2009This was a little better than the last book in the series, but it was still slow going.

    The story dragged for me It took me forever for me to get through this book I have three books in this series to read but am not in a hurry to get to the next one.
