Beauty to Die For: A Spa Mystery
Juliette Taylor walked away from her career as a supermodel twenty-five years ago. Now approaching fifty -- an emotionally complex milestone -- she co-owns a beauty supply company that makes skincare products for salons and spas. Her niche is pampering Christian women who usually spend more time caring for others than for themselves under the slogan "Isn't it time someone took care of YOU for a change?"
When Juliette arrives at the Palm Grotto Spa to host a spiritual retreat, she runs into an old modeling colleague, Raven, who had always been disliked in the industry for many reasons. She isn't there for the retreat; in fact, her presence at the spa is somewhat of a mystery. Not long after she makes a cryptic threat to Juliette, Raven is found dead, poisoned by something in the green clay of a chai soy wrap. The following morning, a banner for the retreat has been unceremoniously altered: "It's your turn to be nurtured, to be restored ... to be murdered." Suspicion is directed at Juliette who has a history with Raven and certainly knows how to use beauty products -- but for murder?! Juliette must find the real killer before the police really take care of her.
