Item Description...
Sometimes decorating can be deadly serious
Haley Farrell is taking a chance on herself. After earning her interior design certificate, she quits her retail job and opens a decorating business. But starting her own company may be tougher than she first thought. Just as Haley's first assignment gets underway, she suddenly finds herself as the prime suspect in a murder investigation. What's worse, the victim is Haley's best friend and mentor, Marge Norwalk.
Reeling from Marge's death, Haley soon realizes that the only way to prove her innocence is to find the real murderer. Before long, Haley is collecting clues and suspects like other designers collect paint chips and fabric samples. But will contractor Dutch Merrill and detective Lila Tsu be swayed by her investigative talents? Or will she be the one punished for this perfectly designed crime?

Community Description
Armed with an interior design certificate, Haley Farrell opens her own decorating business. Meeting new people is exciting-finding them dead is not. When her mentor, Marge Norwalk, is murdered, Haley becomes the prime suspect. What will she discover when she sets out to find the real killer? Book One in the Deadly Decor Mysteries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Poorly written  Mar 21, 2007
I picked this book up because I was interested in design. However I couldn't finish it. It was predictable and pedestrian. As to the faith part, Father Brown mysteries are so much better - literate, profound and thrilling.
Not a light murder mystery, but deep yet entertaining look at faith  Jul 18, 2006
Design on a Crime by Ginny Aiken is a completely different book than I thought it would be. It's the first book in the Deadly Decor mystery series. Haley is just getting started in her own interior decorating business when her mentor is murdered. When it's revealed that Haley is the woman's heir, Haley becomes the prime suspect and has to figure out who the real murderer is before she's thrown into prison. It sounds like just another light, humorous murder mystery of the type that are glutting the market right now, filled with quirky characters and silly situations, but this book is nothing like that. Haley has faced much darkness in her past and struggled through it. She's just starting to regain her self-confidence when this murder throws her back into fear and depression. This book is about losing faith and finding God, even in the dark places. While there are some quirky characters and the occasional laugh, this book delves into some deep subjects and treats them well. Aiken writing alternates between short, choppy bits and long, almost flowery descriptions. I'm not sure if that is to help with characterization, but it sometimes makes for awkward reading. My one complaint is the marketing of the book. The silly title, pastel cover and blurb on the back make this out to be murder-mystery lite. This book is much better than that, and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
A Must Have!  Mar 4, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has the whole package - humor, mystery, suspense, spirituality and a hint of romance. Haley Farrell is a strong female character whose father is the minister for the local church. Not only does Haley have a knack for interior decorating, but soon develops the knack for sleuthing as well. I am looking forward to more books in this series by Ginny Aiken.
