      There is no disguising the fact that author Diane Vallere has penned a winner of a mystery! I was introduced to Diane Vallere’s writing through her Material Witness Mystery series. I really enjoy the flow of that series, so I was delighted when I heard about her new costume Shop Mysteries. She didn’t disappoint. It was a lot of fun getting to know series lead, Margo Tamblyn, and the other characters in A DISGUISE TO DIE FOR. I found the costume shop, Disguise DeLimit to be a unique setting, [...]

      Once I first heard about this book I knew I wanted to read it. A cozy mystery set in a costume shop sounded just way too much fun. And this book was all that I hoped for and more. From the first pages I easily got sucked into the story and the cozy small town and the costume shop that Diane Vallere had created. There was a bit of an introduction and we meet the victim and learn about the party before the murder actually takes place. I thought this approach worked really well in this book.The mys [...]

      This is the first in a new series, and my first book by this author. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series, and to exploring other of her series as well.I really loved that the first book in a mystery series about a costume shop featured a detective-themed birthday party (be sure to check the list at the back of the book for all of the detectives represented!). And the whole idea of a costume shop as the main location in the series will provide a huge variety of party them [...]

      Diane Vallere is one of my favorite mystery authors, and this might be my favorite series of hers yet. Before I began reading I already loved the idea of a costume shop mystery, and Margo and the rest of the characters quickly won me over. I feel very lucky to have been able to read an advance copy.

      I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. I gave it three stars because I liked it and I don't want to make my expectations too high for each book afterwards. It was well written, moved through the story well, good character development and endless possibilities. I enjoyed meeting this small town of characters. Proper, Nevada sounds like an interesting place to live. And by being a town known for it's costume parties, there is a potential for many books of murder and mayhem. Th [...]

      I loved this book, once I got started I had a hard time putting it down and that was because of work issues not that the book was slow to start, I was grabbed pretty quickly. Margo comes home to help at the family costume store when her father has a heart attack and is recovering. When a body is discovered with a woman that Margo considers to be a second mother is found standing over the body the twists and turns begin. I cannot begin to say enough good about the characters in this book. Each is [...]

      What a fun book! I really enjoyed the quirky theme, costumes. The plot was tight and the characters were a hoot! I would like for the main character to have more self confidence than Margo (the main character) in that I want someone who knows who they are and what they want in life. Perhaps as the series progresses, Margo will become more of a stable, confident character and not live vicariously through her costumes. I always enjoy small town charm and this book had that aspect. This book had me [...]

      My first mystery by Diane Vallere was Suede to Rest in the Material Witness mystery series and I love the series. So naturally I couldn't wait to get my hands on this new book and series. I enjoyed the mystery A LOT but somewhere in the middle it was dragging out a bit and even though I wanted to find out more I couldn't get 100% back into the story. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment.

    16. Elaine on said:

      This was a very good book! A very good start to a new series. I really like Margo and her quirkiness with her costume clothes. I really enjoyed her relationship with her dad and Ebony. As far as the mystery of who did it, I didn't have that figured out. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.I received a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review.

      Fun and breezy cozy reminiscent of Charlaine Harris's Lily Bard and Aurora Teagarden series.

      A Disguise to Die For is the inaugural book in the Costume Shop Mystery series by the talented Diane Vallere. I am a fan of Diane Vallere's Style & Error mystery series.
