Summary

New York Times, USA Today, and number-one Kindle best-selling series!

When fashion designer Maddie Springer is invited to help style contestants in the Hawaiian Paradise Beauty Pageant, she jumps at the chance! The fantastic publicity coupled with a weeklong vacation with her best friends, Marco and Dana, is a win-win. But trouble follows her to paradise when one of the beauty queens winds up dead. Is it a case of a personal grudge, a jealous contestant...or a jealous lover? Between a pageant director on his way out, a soap star dazzling his way in, a violent antifashion protester, and a whole pageant full of competitive beauty queens, Maddie has her hands full sorting through suspects! Luckily for Maddie - or unluckily? - her wacky cast of friends and family, including LAPD Detective Jack Ramirez, are there to help her wade through motives more plentiful than pineapples at a luau.

With the televised crowning approaching, the danger escalating, and a killer on the loose, this is one beauty pageant that's about to turn ugly.

Irritatingly Dumb

I had forgotten how frequently stupid Mattie is and how grating the narrator's voice gets. She sounds extraordinarily ditzy. I hate the author's use of phrases like "I did a deep breath" which is how Junie B Jones talks in that children's book.
I was in the mood for cheerful and silly, but this was too dumb.
