Fashion Victim by GT Herren

To hear her buddy Chanse McLeod tell it, Paige Tourneur is rotund, cute as a button, a truly bad driver, and the best friend a gay P.I. could possibly have.

Now Paige gets a chance to tell it herself in her own witty and worldly-wise way. Please! Is that really her name? Seems like she has quite a past, and in Fashion Victim, it’s starting to haunt her.

Since his first novel, Greg Herren’s fans have been begging him to spin off their favorite character, the hard-drinking, hard-bitten, smart-mouthed red-headed reporter with the heart of gold and the unlikely name.

In her first solo outing, she’s long since left the Times-Picayune, played out a stint on television, and has now landed a job at Crescent City Magazine, which sends her out to do a personality piece on bitchy fashion designer Marigny Mercereau. Only Marigny ends up dead fifteen minutes before her fifteen minutes of fame.

Twisting through Marigny’s creepy past, Paige is accompanied, as always, by best friend Chanse, her cop buddies Venus Casanova and Blaine Tujague, and (finally!) by the perfect man: her new boy friend, Blaine’s brother Ryan. So what happens when a woman meets the perfect man and her past comes calling?

  1. This book sounds so fun!! And I love the button, Samantha. :)

  2. It looks like it should be a fun read. The cover art matches the description of the character as well. It would make a potential reader want to pick up the book and find out more about the story.

    The teaser makes you think about the character's secrets and you immediately get pulled into the mystery.I assume that this book will be even more of a treat for individuals who read the story before this one and liked the character from then.

  3. The Saints & Sinners Literary Festival sounds like fun! I'm a librarian and attended the American Library Association Annual Conference in New Orleans in June of 2006--the first major conference in NOLA post-Katrina. Many of us volunteered at various library locations around the city to help rebuild.

  4. I wish more authors of this type of content would take the time you did to research and write so well. I am very impressed with your vision and insight.


  5. Great post dear keep it up

  6. If you wear clothes that don't suit you, you're a fashion victim. You have to dress in clothes that make you appear improved.

  7. If you're also huge to fit into fashion, after that you just have to do your own fashion.
