From selling camisoles to solving crimes, the ladies of the Sweet Nothings lingerie shop in Paris, Tennessee, will make this Valentine's a day to remember...

For Valentine's Day, Emma Taylor and her aunt Arabella have organized a special evening for men only to shop for their sweethearts in the Sweet Nothings lingerie shop, complete with champagne and hors d'oeuvres. But when a former valentine shows up, Aunt Arabella is not her usual bubbly self.

Art dealer Hugh Granger is still a charmer, though. He invites the women to a ball he's having to celebrate his birthday and his return to Paris, Tennessee. But when Granger is pushed from the balcony, it paints a sinister picture for Aunt Arabella, who gets framed...for her old flame's murder.

I enjoyed the first two books i this series as fun, light reads. I don't feel the same about this third book. There were too many things going on for too many people, too many crimes with possibly too many criminals, or one major criminal. I felt the story lacked cohesion and believability. Plus this book needed better editing. As a former editor myself, I noticed the misspelled words (that spellcheck didn't catch because they were actual words, just not the correct ones in context). Worst of all for me were the continuity issues. Emma was at a home and noticed a group of photos. A black and white photo of a couple caught her eye. When she described the photo she commented on the painting behind the couple, and the bright colours in it -- really? Bright colours in a black and white photo? Emma had also talked about it being a cold February and being chilled a lot of the time; yet she put on a pair of capris to go somewhere? What? Brian had a broken leg; he was using two crutches, then he was using one crutch, then he was using two crutches but going to get Emma a drink from the refrigerator (using two crutches? how did he manage?). And when Emma walked Brian to the door (he was using two crutches) she held his hand -- not arm which could work while he's using two crutches -- his hand. As you can tell, I started finding all this annoying. It distracted from the story, which was on the more unbelievable side already. Not sure if I'll look for book four.
