Summary
One time beauty queen Madeline Maclin is trying to get her fledgling detective agency in Parkland, North Carolina, off to a good start, but it is hard when everyone thinks of her as the former Miss Parkland. When her eccentric friend Jerry Fairweather tells her that an uncle has died and left him a house in nearby Celosa, she decides to help him fix it up. When they arrive, they learn that the house may be haunted and are further intrigued to hear that the local beauty pageant is under siege. After Jerrys greedy, on-again, off-again girlfriend, Olivia, shows up to see if she can profit from his real estate, Madeline decides to put her pageant knowledge to work looking for the saboteur who is destroying sets. Then murder enters the picture, and she really gets busy. The small-town southern milieu, busy plot, and good humor--a slightly frothier version of Margaret Marons Deborah Knott series--make Teshs debut enjoyable reading for cozy lovers. -- Barbara Bibel (Reviewed 02-01-2006) (Booklist, vol 102, number 11, p34)
