Mad For Mod #5
Interior decorator Madison Night is no stranger to the occasional odd inheritance. But when an octogenarian friend dies and leaves her a pajama factory, the bounty is bittersweet.
Once a thriving business, Sweet Dreams closed decades ago after a tragic accident took the life of a young model. Or was that simply a cover up?
Between her friend’s death and her own stagnant life, Madison is tempted to hide under a blanket of willful ignorance.
But when family members and special interest groups lobby to expose the secrets of the factory, Madison gets caught in a tangle of secrets and lies and discovers that sometimes, the bed you make is not your own.
Madison Night is back. Living in her vintage world, looking and dressing like Doris Day. Running her decorating business alone while boyfriend Hudson is still out in California doing his own thing. The relationship is as stagnant as her life at the moment.
When she receives a call from her friend Alice’s step-grandson telling her she has inherited a pajama factory that closed years ago after an accident led to the death of one of the girls working there. It was closed that day and no one has been in since. A vintage capsule.
But things aren’t adding up and Madison trusts her instincts and makes sure Tex, the police captain knows her every move. I liked this about her. She wasn’t running around hiding evidence from the police, she was smart, and funny. Her vintage outfits were adorable and she kept it true to vintage in every portion of her life, from the quilted housecoat to the old coffee percolator.
I really enjoyed this book. Madison isn’t some twenty something. She is in her late forties and has endured much in her life. She is true to herself and I have found a new author to love!
