It begins with the death of Hillary Whitney in a locked room in the offices of the magazine. RAGE Fashion Book. She appears to have...

This book is more chick-lit than mystery. At the beginning I was excited to immerse myself in a conspiratorial thriller that takes place in the corporate offices of a fashion magazine but soon discovered this story was more Sophie Kinsella than Paula Hawkins. Anyways, it was an ok read, I didn't...

Did you like Sex and the City or/and The Devil Wears Prada, but thought it could have been better with some unexpected deaths? Then I'll Eat When I'm Dead by Barbara Bourland is a book for you.

With a fantastic title, good blurb and an interesting setting, this novel seemed to have everything to create an excellent mystery. It is set around the fashion industry, in general, and the offices of a fashion magazine, “RAGE Fashion Book,” in particular. Catherine Ono is a senior editor at the...

5 Words: Fashion, attraction, friendship, ambition, fame. When I first heard about this book, I was excited. Although I'm not the most fashionable person, I do love to follow fashion and have my glossy's on subscription. RAGE is everything I wish I could actually read. And this book absolutely del...

Beauty can be deadly … quite literally in Hillary Whitney’s case. When the editor is found dead in one of the work rooms at Rage Fashion Book, the magazine she works for, a heart attack caused by near starvation is found to be the cause. However, friend and colleague Cat Ono suspects otherwise. I...

Well-written novel, for sure. All of the information about fashion and couture astounded me, and it wasn't presented as name-dropping or as an information dump, which is much appreciated (and honestly not as easy to find in novels as one might think). The mystery was a slow-burn one, but with suc...

Ok, so I get that this book was trying to be the next "The Devil Wears Prada", but there was a huge difference between the two books. One was successful and relevant and one fell flat. Yes, I understand it was satire and that the author was trying to make a statement and a point about women in a...
