Book Overview

HIGH SOCIETY HOMOCIDE When amateur sleuth Josie Pigeon joins her longtime beau, Sam, on a trip to New York City for a week, she suspects she'll be looking at engagement rings, not mug shots. Once they arrive in the Big Apple though, the constant reminders of Sam's wealthy, glamorous past make Josie feel like she's way out of her league. Then the body of his ex-girlfriend, the elegant Pamela Peel, turns up in Sam's apartment--and he becomes the police's...

I liked this one; the setting's different, though.

Josie Pigeon is a bit out of her element in New York City, but that's part of the plot. Her son has a great time in NY. Sam's mother Carol is a much bigger character in this novel than in the previous ones in the series.We meet Josie's former employee Betty again. We don't meet Sam's former girlfriend Pamela Peel - because she's dead before we can be introduced. And Sam is a suspect.There was a bit much about the shopping joys of NYC, but then, that is Carol Birnbaum's view of life. The stuff about interior decorating- Pamela's profession - was interesting. But my favorite is the inside views of several very different salons, from Elizabeth Arden to a New Age place; the gossip and bitchiness of the employees rings true. The struggles of various New Yorkers to make it in their chosen professions is a theme throughout the book.Let's see, to intrigue you: Sam's brown reading chair plays an important role in this mystery. And, this is not a spoiler since it has nothing to do with solving the mystery or saying who-dun-it: Josie proposes to Sam at the end. So you definitely don't want to miss this one in the series! It's not the best, but it is good, and it is fun.
