Goodie One Shoes
An Emily's Place MysteryBook - 2010
A Jimmy Choo Sandal. A Manolo Blahnik mule; a Sergio Rossi slide, a Prada sliver-heeled boot. As magic as Cinderella's glass slipper. Even when they don't fit, they can determine your life--or end it. Emily knows these things because she owns a discount shoe store on the colorful Upper West Side of Manhattan--Emily's Place a neighborhood hangout for shoe lovers, where customers could find a sympathetic ear, a hot cup of coffee and the perfect shoe. Unfortunately, someone has decided that a sexy stiletto-heeled shoe is an excellent murder weapon. A member of the Emily's Place "family"--the staff of women who run the store and love the shoes in it--is murdered with a red Jimmy Choo high-heeled shoe--sharp as an ice pick, the spiked heel is embedded in her head. Emily is still reeling from the shock of her friend's murder when a bag is shoved through her mail slot containing the mate to the shoe that was the murder weapon. Emily realizes that her store and everyone connected to it is a target and that a psycho killer is stalking them all. In fact the killer seems to particularly want Emily to suffer. She insists on working with the detective assigned to the case, Paul Murphy to find the killer--and she will do whatever it takes. It's personal.
