Prequel to PILLOW STALK
Second in the Mad for Mod Series
Good Word-of-Mouth for the Mad for Mod Series:
"Make room for Vallere’s tremendously fun homage. Imbuing her story with plenty of midcentury-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."
"A multifaceted story...plenty of surprises...And what an ending!"
-Mary Marks, New York Journal of Books
"If 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 there’s a cliffhanger that will make your jaw drop. You’ll look forward to the second Mad for Mod mystery."
-Abigail Ortlieb, RT Book Reviews
"PILLOW STALK is an intricately plotted and well-written book, I really enjoyed the story. I can't imagine decorating a house in the style from Doris Day's movies but it makes fine reading."
-Leanne Davis, Fresh Fiction
"It was fast and furious, had a lot of info, characters, suspects, and even a few tangled romances. I love mysteries where I can’t 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 Madison’s character was a riot."
"A 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 Mysteries
