THE PAJAMA FRAME
A Madison Night Mystery
by Diane Vallere
General Fiction (Adult) , Mystery & Thrillers
Pub Date 27 Feb 2018
Are you mad for mod? If not, Diane Vallere’s newest cozy will have you taking a fresh look at retro fashion. Vallere’s heroine, Madison Night, is a 40 something decorator with a flair for all that is vintage modern - from her unique taste in clothing to her interior design. While many would label her quirky for her Doris Day aesthetic, it would be a mistake to underestimate her investigative abilities.
In The Pajama Frame, Madison Night is drawn into a complex web of long hidden secrets, lies, and murder when she inherits a long closed pajama factory linked to the mysterious death of a young woman. It swiftly becomes clear that something odd is going on when Madison discovers a body, and receives keys to a storage unit filled with files and a gun. The plot is complex, but definitely believable, as are the interactions between the characters. Diane Vallere’s novels are fresh and far from formulaic. It is no wonder that her novels are popular with mystery lovers of all ages.
The Pajama Frame is an entertaining cozy, well written with a unique and fascinating heroine and just a touch of romance. It is a novel that will be enjoyed by both fans and newcomers alike. I definitely recommend The Pajama Frame to any cozy lover looking for something different.

I received a copy of The Pajama Frame from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Interior decorator Madison Night is no stranger to the occasional odd inheritance. But when an octogenarian friend dies and leaves her a pajama factory, the bounty is bittersweet.
Once a thriving business, Sweet Dreams closed decades ago after a tragic accident took the life of a young model. Or was that simply a cover up?
Between her friend’s death and her own stagnant life, Madison is tempted to hide under a blanket of willful ignorance.
But when family members and special interest groups lobby to expose the secrets of the factory, Madison gets caught in a tangle of secrets and lies and discovers that sometimes, the bed you make is not your own.
