High Heels Are Murder by Elaine Viets is the second book in the “Josie Marcus Mystery Shopper” cozy mystery series. Publisher: Signet, November 2006
From the Agatha Award-Winning Author of Dying In Style
Every job has its pluses and minuses. Josie Marcus gets to shoe-shop-but she also must deal with men like Mel Poulaine, who’s too interested in handling women’s feet. Soon Josie’s been hired by Mel’s boss to mystery-shop the store, but one step leads to another and Josie finds herself in St. Louis’s seedy underbelly. Caught up in a web of crime, Josie hopes against hope that she won’t end up murdered in Manolos.
Josie couldn’t believe it, her worst enemy, the bane of her existence, Mrs. Mueller, has asked her to help her perfect daughter escape a murder rap in exchange for Josie’s mother being named head of two committees. Foot fetish, gambling and affairs play a role in Josie solving this murder. This was a good read.
