Halloween brings more tricks than treats for costume shop owner Margo Tamblyn in the second in a new cozy series from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness Mysteries.
Halloween conjures up big business for Margo Tamblyn’s costume shop, Disguise DeLimit, but this year, the holiday comes knocking with serious trouble. Venture capitalist Paul Haverford plans to rezone historic downtown into a glitzy commercial area which would push out local business. Margo is set on saving her family’s store, especially after a nasty run-in with the chain-store tycoon, but after Haverford’s body is discovered during a spooky party at the derelict Alexandria Hotel, Margo finds herself dressed as the police’s prime suspect.
Anxious to clear her name, Margo begins hunting down anyone who might have wanted Haverford dead. Between all of his malicious maneuverings, the murdered mogul had buckets of people anxious to see him gone. Now, Margo will have to use every trick in the book to find a cloaked killer—before someone else winds up wearing a death shroud..

Masking for Trouble is the second book in the Costume Shop Mystery series by Diane Vallere. This is the first book of author Diane Vallere's that I have read.
Masking for Trouble is set in a costume shop in a small town in Nevada. It is near Las Vegas so I am picturing Pahrump, Nevada. The story is set in the Halloween season which is a great time of the year for a book about a costume shop. The book is released in October therefore it is a great way to get in the spirit of the Halloween season.
Masking For Trouble is filled with interesting characters like Margo, the main character, who dresses in costume every day. Yes every day. Margo is sort of seeing a fellow named Tak whose parents own the local Japanese restaurant. But he doesn't want anyone to know about their relationship. I didn't like that part. Should she kick him to the curb? And what about this new guy Coop?
It is a good, well-written and clean cozy mystery. I was surprised by the reveal of the murderer. Great book for the Halloween season and for cozy mystery fans.
