A multifaceted story...plenty of surprises...And what an ending! - New York Journal of BooksInterior Decorator Madison Night has modeled her life after a character in a Doris Day movie, but when a killer targets women dressed like the bubbly actress, Madisons signature sixties style places her in the middle of a homicide investigation. The local detective connects the new crimes to a twenty-year old cold case, and Madisons long-trusted contractor emerges as the leading suspect. As the body count piles up like a stack of plush pillows, Madison uncovers a Soviet spy, a campaign to destroy all Doris Day movies, and six minutes of film that will change her life forever.Praise for PILLOW STALK: Make room for Valleres tremendously fun homage. Imbuing her story with plenty of mid-century modern decorating and fashion tips, not to mention a steady patter of Doris Day trivia, Vallere debuts a well-paced cozy series. Her disarmingly honest lead and two hunky sidekicks will appeal to all fashionistas and antiques types and have romance crossover appeal. - Library JournalIf you are looking for an unconventional mystery with a snarky, no-nonsense main character, this is it. Madison is a strong leading lady who lands in lots of quirky situations. Instead of clashing, humor and danger meld perfectly, and theres a cliffhanger that will make your jaw drop. Youll look forward to the second Mad for Mod mystery. - RT Book ReviewsA charming modern tribute to Doris Day movies and the retro era of the 50s, including murders, escalating danger, romance... and a puppy! - Linda O. Johnston, Author of the Pet Rescue MysteriesPillow Stalk is an intricately plotted and well-written book, I really enjoyed the story. I cant imagine decorating a house in the style from Doris Days movies but it makes fine reading. - Leanne Davis, Fresh FictionIt was fast and furious, had a lot of info, characters, suspects, and even a few tangled romances. I love mysteries where I cant figure out who the real killer is until the end, and this was one of those. The novel was well written, moved at a smooth pace, and Madisons character was a riot. - ChickLit PlusThis was a delightful read for me. I particularly enjoy and like Doris Day and was so surprised that Pillow Talk was mentioned in the book along with Doris Day. Its nice having a cute, cozy mystery to read, I look forward to more in the series! - Lynn Demsky, bookreporter.comIf you love the Technicolor movies of Doris Day and Rock Hudson and watch Mad Men for fashion tips, author Diane Vallere has written a mystery that will appeal to the mid-century modern heart. - Joanne Hamilton-Selway, ReaderToReader.comBooks in the Mad for Mod Humorous Mystery Series: MIDNIGHT INK (prequel novella in OTHER PEOPLES BAGGAGE) PILLOW STALK (#1) THAT TOUCH OF INK (#2) (April 2014) WITH VICS YOU GET EGGROLL (#3) (April 2015) Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, youll probably like them all...
