The Pajama Frame: A Madison Night Mystery by Diane Vallere

She's established a business by buying retro clothing and furniture and decor and offering it to customers.  She'll even help them decorate.  When she finds a friend of hers left her an old pajama factory, she's overwhelmed.  She doesn't know what to do with it.  And she can't even get in it because it was the scene of a crime years ago and is still padlocked.  Even worse, there's lots of gossip about what happened all those years ago.  Is this a blessing or a curse?

Henery Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published tomorrow.  

Madison is approached by protestors and the historical society when she goes to visit the property.  Then the cops show up.  Madison also has a conflict of interest with the cop.  They used to be enemies, now they are almost friends, and she's finding him attractive.  But her boyfriend is in California.  She's conflicted over that as well as the murder.

Two more people die in the present day before she works out who the killer is.  And when she does, she finds the killer in the same building she's in.  She can't hide.  Can she stay alive?

The story moves along well, the romance is interesting and I'm sure there will be more in this series.  It's a good cozy read.
