From the back of the book
There are some major benefits to Josie's job-like, oh, getting paid to shoe shop. But on the flip side, there are sleazes to deal with...like salesman Mel Poulaine. His employer, the chichi Soft Shoe store, thinks the heel's a little too interested in his line of work-namely, handling women's bare feet. So they hire Josie to mystery-shop their St. Louis store and see whether Mel should get the boot. But one thing leads to another and Josie finds herself in St. Louis's seedy underbelly. Before long, she gets caught up in a web of gambling, blackmail, and truly desperate housewives. And she hopes against hope that she won't end up murdered in Manolos...
**Once again author, Elaine Veits has Josie involved in a murder that was not her choosing. Perhaps, being a "Mystery Shopper" is more dangerous than it should be. But when her mother is bent on becoming the Maplewood chair of the St. Louis Flower Guild, Josie knows in her heart that she has to find the real killer.
