Kurzbeschreibung

From award winning author, Sibel Hodge, comes a screwball comedy-mystery, combining murder and mayhem with romance and chick-lit...

Amber Fox has been making too many mistakes, and something's got to give...

For starters, Amber accidentally shoots Chief Inspector Janice Skipper and gets thrown off the police force. Oops! Then, she accepts a job as an insurance investigator from her ex-fiancé, Brad Beckett. Only Brad thinks they've still got unfinished business in the romance department, making for a steamier working environment than Amber counted on. And when fashion designer, Umberto Fandango, goes missing, Amber's investigative skills are put to the ultimate test. Nothing about the case is what it seems, and to make matters worse Amber's arch-enemy, Chief Inspector Skipper, is also investigating the disappearance. If Amber wants her old job back, she's in a race against time to solve the mystery before Skipper does... all the while dodging her ex-fiancé, her own mixed up feelings, and a couple of crazy mobsters.

Who is Umberto Fandango? Is he dead? And can Amber stay one step ahead to stay alive?

(Note: Formerly published under the title "The Fashion Police")

This novel was a runner-up in the Chapter One Promotions Novel Competition 2010 and nominated Best Novel with Romantic Elements 2010 by The Romance Reviews!

What people are saying about FASHION, LIES & MURDER:

"Hodge created a lovely chick-lit/thriller storyline that reminds me of Charlaine Harris’ Lily Bard mysteries that I love to eat up."
~ The New Podler Review of Books

"This is one of the best self published books I've read yet. There were just so many over the top and lol moments that it made me fall in love with Amber. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a mystery this much."
~ A Buckeye Girl Reads

"A witty well-paced romp, full of energy and with plenty of satisfying twists and turns."
~ Romantic Novelists' Association

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ganz nett 27. Juni 2014
Von Anonym
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Die Serie erinnert mich ein bisschen an die Stephanie Plum Bücher von Janet Evanovich.

Nachdem sie ihren Job verloren hat, fängt die Heldin an als Versicherungsprüfer zu arbeiten. Ähnlich wie bei Plum bekommt sie Fälle zugewiesen, für die sie dann eine Prämie kassiert. Hier eben dafür, dass sie Versicherungsbetrüger entlarvt anstatt Kautionsbetrüger.

Auch hier gibt es zwei Männer in ihrem Leben: den soliden "Richtigen" und den gefährlichen "Bad Boy" zu dem sie sich hingezogen fühlt, aber ihre Beziehung zum soliden nicht gefährden möchte.

Ebenfalls wie in den Evanovich Büchern scheint der Hauptcharakter, Unfälle und seltsame Situationen magisch anzuziehen. Wobei die Situationen hier nicht gar so übertrieben sind wie bei Evanovich.

Dies liegt vor allem am Hauptcharakter. Im Gegensatz zu Evanovich ist Fox nicht komplett unqualifiziert für ihren neuen Job (Stephanie Plum war ja vorher eine Lingerie Einkäuferin). Fox war vorher ein Cop.

Dieser Unterschied sollte eigentlich die größte Stärke des Buches sein, ist aber stattdessen die größte Schwäche. Wer sich hier eine Beckett (Castle) erwartet, wird enttäuscht. Fox hat keine erkennbare Ausbildung genossen, denn sie verliert die Kontrolle über ihr Auto nachdem sie gerammt wurde, hat keine Nahkampferfahrung und anscheinend auch keinen Waffenschein. Tatsächlich erinnert sie eher an Castle als an Beckett und das finde ich unrealistisch. Aber ich würde das zweite Buch lesen, um zu sehen, ob die Autorin dieses Problem in den Griff bekommt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book 20. April 2014
Von Kat E L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It's really a good book, with a good storyline and the descriptions are wonderful and the characters are on point. I can recommend to anyone. Should be selling in a set though. It would be better for the customers when sold as a set.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Billiger Abklatsch 13. April 2014
Von kmünchen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das hörte sich doch irgendwie nach Stephanie Plum an - da schlage ich doch mal zu - leichte, lustige Unterhaltung. Naja, der Abklatsch ist so billig - habe nach ca. 20 % aufgegeben, Farbe im Haar - Probleme mit dem Ex und vielleicht doch noch Anbahnung, verrückte andere Frauen, Verschwinden, verwüstete Wohnung, nur das Auto ist noch nicht in die Luft geflogen - ich weiß nicht, ob ich das Buch noch zu Ende lese, es ist auf jeden Fall erst mal weit hinten geparkt.
Ist nicht mal hartgesottenen Plum-Fans zu empfehlen

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Read In Years 5. September 2011
Von earformusic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Fashion Police by Sibel Hodge is the best cozy mystery I've read in years. From the opening sentence to the last, this book captures the reader. The book's main character is Amber Fox, an insurance investigator working for her former fiancee. Ms. Hodge is a master at character development. The reader gets a true feel for each character in the story. Although it wasn"t difficult to figure out the main storyline, unlike other books I've read, the whodunit did come as a surprise. Once I started reading, could not put this one down until it ended. Looking forward with anticipation to further Amber Fox mysteries.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun little mystery 22. März 2011
Von Karen Bell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a cute mystery with a silly sense of humor and a hint of romance. It's pretty much just what I expected from a "screwball comedy-mystery". I liked all the quirky characters, from Tia, with her not very useful psychic visions, to Amber's amusingly dysfunctional family. This is a good choice if you are in the mood for a story that will have you laughing at life's little absurdities.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Murder with Humor 22. Mai 2011
Von Martha A. Cheves - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
`This was going to be a piece of cake. I would just sneak around, posing as an inconspicuous shopper, and snap a few pictures of Clark stacking shelves. Why had I been so worried about this job? It was ridiculously easy. I heaved through the horde of shoppers, scanned the crowd for signs of any shelf-stocking activity. There was nothing going on in the fruit and veggies aisle, so I picked up a bag of bananas and wandered off in search of Clark. The bakery section was quiet and boring, except for the yummy smell of freshly baked bread. Ditto for the condiments aisle, the dairy isle, and the cereal aisle. Maybe there was a special time of day when all the shelf-stockers were let out in a frenzy, and I'd missed it. I stood in front of the toiletries with the idea that if I stood there long enough, Clark would come to me. I could wait until closing time if need be, no problem. As it turned out, I lasted about ten minutes. I was reading the directions on a box of teeth-whitening strips when I heard a rustling sound coming from my bag of bananas. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the bananas begin to move. Wait a sec, bananas don't move. I stared at the bag as my hands shook. Nope, the bananas weren't moving at all. It was a ginormous tarantula inside the bag that was moving, tapping on the plastic with its hairy foot. I froze, hardly daring to breath. Omigod! Spider! In my mental world, I was screaming my head off, but in the real world, I think my mouth was just wide open with no sound coming out. I threw the bag on the floor and rocketed out to the parking lot faster than the speed of light, probably warp factor ten at least...Paul Clark and Brad would just have to wait.

Amber Fox is a former Detective Sergeant who was given the choice by Detective Chief Inspector Janice Skipper to either resign or be "resigned." This all took place after Amber accidently shot Janice in the rear while both were on the firing range one day. Janice said it was intentional, Amber said it was an accident. Either way, Amber resigned and went to work for her former fiancé Brad who was owner of Hi-Tec Insurance. Brad hired Amber to do check out some of the insurance claims he had received by a few clients that weren't exactly reputable. One claim was by Paul Clark who insisted that he had hurt his back and could no longer work. That's when Amber discovered him working as a stocker at the local grocery store. Through her surveillance she also discovered that she probably wouldn't be buying bananas from this store in the future. Added to her work load was the job of planting "bugs" hidden in pens throughout the offices of fashion designer Umberto Fandango. This job turned out to be a bummer too when it was discovered that the pens weren't working correctly. And Amber's decision to go back to the offices to replace the pens, she discovers that Fandango is missing and due to the amount of blood at the scene, he just might possibly be dead.

The Fashion Police is one of the funniest murder mysteries I've ever read. Amber isn't a klutz but she sure finds herself in some really dangerous but funny situations. Amber finds her dad, recently retired from the police force, dressed in women's clothes. His former drug sniffing police dog has some really strange commands. And when she runs into a couple of goons named Sally and Tracy, she inflicts problems on them that will have your laughing out loud. But I didn't tell you the best part. Her former ex Brad and her policeman boyfriend Romeo are both in love with her and want her for themselves. Amber has decided that she actually loves both and just in case one doesn't work out she might better hang onto both. Oh yeah, Janice has made it known that she will stop at nothing to wreak havoc on Amber's life and see that she loses everything, especially Romeo in the process.

So, if you like a good laugh along with your murder, The Fashion Police is a book you don't want to miss out on.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stephanie Plum Meets Her British Cousin Amber Fox 27. Juli 2013
Von authorsam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Hodge's take on romantic suspense/mystery engages the reader from the beginning and hangs on until the end. Amber is flat out funny, smart--well, maybe not about men--and very ingenious. Did I mention brave beyond what I could ever imagine. Loved her quirky ways that attract a range of quirky friends. Diving into book two book as soon as I can! Write on, Ms. Hodge.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What fun! 19. Juni 2011
Von L. Mihay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Think Stephanie Plum without a gun and "cleaned up". Former Detective Sgt. Amber Fox, is working as an insurance investigator for her former fiance. Throw in a current lover, bumblind mafia goons, a missing fashion designer, and that's only the beginning of the fun. This is a good mystery, with lots of twists & turns, and laughs along the way. All in all, it's a FUN READ! I will be adding more of these to my TBR list, for sure!
