Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

In the 10th book of the chick lit series, Presley buys failing retail boutique, Silk, and on the first day of business ownership the store manager Roxanne is arrested for murdering her boyfriend. Roxanne insists she’s innocent and asks for Presley’s help.

Presley believes her and tries to help while getting the boutique up and running just to find out someone has been paying themselves from company funds? Who is stealing from Silk and is there more to Rod and Roxanne’s relationship than meets the eye?

I previously reviewed Romance & Revenge, another book in the series. I enjoyed that one, so I looked forward to getting started on this book. Again, the book is cozy mystery / chick lit with a good dose of humor and some romance.

In Accessories & Alibis, Presley buys a failing retail boutique named Silk, determined to turn it into a succesful business again. But on her first day as brand new business owner, the store manager gets arrested for murdering her boyfriend. Even though Roxanne, aforementioned store manager, insists she’s innocent, the police is convinced she’s the one behind the murder. And who better to help prove Roxanne’s innocence than Presley? But Presley sure has her work cut out for her this time, with someone stealking from Silk, solving the murder, and running her new business.

I liked this book more than its predecessor, in terms of plot. Overall, the plot is more original, and it stands out more. Again, the characters are enjoyable and engaging, and as a reader it’s easy to see the progress Presley has made as a character so far.

If I had to have one complaint, it would be the editing. There are some errors here and there throughout the book that can be a bit confusing, but overall they don’t bring down the general reading experience.

Recommended to all fans of cozy mysteries.
