Death Turns a Trick by Julie Smith is in a series called “Rebecca Schwartz Mystery(ies).” I probably won’t read any more books in this series, but I will read more novels by Julie Smith. The Talba Wallis series novels are highly entertaining. I find her writing style very engaging. There is lots of humor that is not always subtle (like the title of this book) and the resolution to the mysteries presented usually have a satisfying twist. This particular novel dwells too much on the details of dresses and costumes worn on different occasions. There is way too much information for me on the quality of different cosmetics and the amounts of time spent preparing to meet different audiences. It’s just not my genre. But it may satisfy the more fashion-conscious reader.
