Mystery, Murder, Manolo Blahnik
As a devoted fashionata and practical New Yorker, Skylar Blackwell doesn’t believe in the supernatural—until she inherits Summerwind Mansion. . . .
When her uncle is brutally murdered, and the cops seem uninterested in following up the case, Skylar journeys to California to seek answers. Her search for clues is soon overshadowed by haunting nightmares of a young woman also murdered in the house.
Now the inhabitants of Summerwind are mysteriously dying, leaving no evidence as to how or why, and Skylar finds herself in a deadly race against time to expose the killer—before they strike again.
Armed with only wit and Pradas, Skylar begins questioning the servants, but the growing list of suspects includes the sexy and brooding caretaker, Dorian, a man desperately trying to forget his tragic past. And a major distraction for Skylar.
Determined to play detective—instead of the fashion police—and unravel the dark history of the mansion, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away. As the boundaries between reality and dreams blur, Skylar’s greatest challenge is to stay alive long enough to learn the truth.

Sherry's Favorite Passage 1
Dorian pulls me to my feet and I find myself pressed against the tree. I raise my hands to push him away, but his strong fingers imprison mine above my head. I stare into those hypnotic eyes. My knees tremble. Blood springs from my heart and pounds in my brain. Desire flares in his bold stare, and I’m lost. I can’t move. I can’t think. The world has vanished. Nothing exists outside of this thrilling moment. Dorian leans in close, and a spark of response leaps between us. His fingers tighten on my wrists.
“I should do what’s right”—he inclines his head and places his mouth near my ear—”and leave you alone.”
Oh, I hope he does what’s wrong.
I’m unsure whether to step away or invade his personal space. After a moment’s hesitation, I lean into him and his hold loosens. The heat of his body enters mine, and his vibrant masculine presence overwhelms and robs me of breath. Things like that will do something funny to a girl’s head. They must. Because after swallowing twice, I say huskily, “Oh, Dorian…Dorian…” Kiss me.
Sherry's Favorite Passage 2
Victor Pratt steps even closer, almost invading my space, eyeing the amulet resting between my breasts for a long second, before his gaze lingers on my boobs. His stare is downright creepy. There’s no way Victor thinks I’m a hottie—we can’t be less each other’s type. And the guy makes my skin crawl. But while I might not know how to handle the spooky stuff, I do know how to handle lecherous men.
“Y’know, being stalked isn’t really a big turn-on for most women.”
He doesn’t answer, just stares at my lady lumps.
“My eyes are up here, Victor.” I put a finger under his chin and tilt his head upward.
Victor looks down again and licks his lips.
Ewww! Annoyed, I flick his forehead with my index finger and thumb, making him blink sharply.
He rubs the red spot. “Hey!”
I glare. “Stop it then!”
His expression turns wolfish. “Why? Is it affecting you?”
I cross my arms. “Of course not. You’re being a pig.”
“Am I? So sorry.” He doesn’t even have the decency to act regretful. He has that air about him that says he knows who he is and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of him. I envy that.
Thank you so much for letting me chat up my paranormal romance novel with all of you. It’s been an honor to share my favorite moments.

4 spooky fashionista stars****
Getting ready to re-read this one soon... and, it's a good fit for the Halloween season if you're looking for something with a spooky atmosphere.
This is a very well written mystery/ghost story with a few interesting twists on immortality.
Let's start with Skylar. Yes, Skylar is somewhat of a fashionista... her addiction to fashion is a good fit for her personality and photography career. And, thankfully the name brand and fashion talk did not overwhelm the story which is good. I've read books before where the name brand dropping was annoying but I didn't feel that way with this book. I liked Skylar... and after you get to know her a little you get the feeling that her sense of style is actually a mask for her inner struggles. You know... if I look good on the outside it will hide the pain I feel on the inside. I think we can all relate to that in some way or another.
Her love interest is Dorian. I love the slow and gradual way he and Skylar come together. And Dorian, along with everyone else at the mansion are a mystery.
This story has a very spooky feel. Loved the setting of the old mansion and the grounds around it. I was very engaged and stayed huddled on my couch till' I was done. I found it to be very creative and the murders and the mystery keep you guessing 'till the end. I even found myself feeling a little creeped out and scared a few times. But, the spirit world always freaks me out more than it might for someone else who isn't such a scaredy cat. This is one of the creepiest love triangles I've ever read! And, I do mean creepy... some people will go to great lengths for love... or say, possession. Yep, that's a better word.
Anyway... I enjoyed this book very much and I do think it would appeal to someone who enjoys haunted mysteries mixed with a bit of paranormal and splashed with a dash of romance... oh, and an eye for fashion!
