Product Description

From the Publisher

Mandy Dyer, owner of Dyer's Cleaners, has a spotless reputation for taking care of customers clothes until lipstick marks begin appearing on the freshly pressed garments. She's afraid one of her employees is trying to ruin her business, and she wonders if the employee could be working for a competitor, Lonnie "The Sleezeball" Mills, who has opened a discount cleaners in the neighborhood. Lonnie has been bombarding her customers with cut-rate coupons for his store.

When Mandy sees what she thinks is a mannequin suspended from the overhead conveyor inside the front window, she thinks it's another dirty trick, but when she gets inside, Mandy finds it's Lonnie's body, hanging from the conveyor. Mandy becomes a suspect because she had threatened to put a permanent end to his career if he didn't stop hanging around her plant. Adding to Mandy's problems is the arrival of her mother from Phoenix.

With humor, charm, and an exciting mystery at its core, Hung Up to Die promises an exciting ride for cozy lovers everywhere.

Farley Mills has started a new discount dry cleaners which begins to undermine Mandy Dyer's business. Mandy doesn't mind fair competition, but Farley is passing out coupons to his establishment right on Mandy's doorstep. As Mandy is pondering what to do about it, Farley's body is found on the premises of Dyer's Cleaners. Mandy has an obvious motive and one which the police seize on immediately. In self-defense, she decides to start her own investigation. After some checking around, Mandy discovers that several of her employees have motives for the murder. One by one, she tries to investigate each of the suspects until she discovers the guilty party, only in time for her own life to be threatened. Johnson is a good writer and this second book is a good addition to the series.

I really enjoyed this second of the Mandy Dyer series & hope Dolores Johnson keeps writing more. Who knew there was so much going on at your local dry cleaners? Her books are funny-witty & a good read not to mention spot-less. This time we get to meet Mandys Mom & she is a hoot. Looking forward to the next installment.

After reading this book, I went out and got as many Mandy Dyermysteries as I could find. Characters are likeable and humorous, and theplot was intriguing. As a fan of Sue Grafton's style of realistic characters and interesting plot twists, I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
