The Decorator Who Knew Too Much by Diane Vallere book review

When Interior Decorator Madison Night accepts an assignment in Palm Springs with handyman Hudson James, she expects designing days and romantic nights. But after spotting a body in the river by the job site, she causes a rift in the team. Add in the strain of recurring nightmares and a growing dependency on sleeping pills, and Madison seeks professional help to deal with her demons.

She learns more about the crime than she’d like thanks to girl talk with friends, pillow talk with Hudson, and smack talk with the local bad boys. And after the victim is identified as the very doctor she’s been advised to see, she wonders if what she knows can help catch a killer. An unlikely ally helps navigate the murky waters before her knowledge destroys her, and this time, what she doesn’t know might be the one thing that saves her life.


My thoughts:


Madison Night is fantastic character with her likeness to Doris Day was a great twist. Her boyfriend Hudson James is a unique man himself and a handyman.

The secondary characters are just as fun with Emma and Jimmy and others.

You are kept guessing until the end of who did what.

I love Diane Vallere’s books. She knows how to keep the reader turning the pages with great characters and plot.

I received an ARC and I voluntarily reviewed.
