    A Blush with Death is the second book in the Bath and Body Mystery series by India Ink. I read the first a long time ago, then found the second and third at a used book store the other day, so now I can move on.Venus Envy is a bath and body shop in Gull Harbor, WA. Auntie owns the shop and employes her niece Persia Vanderbilt as her custom fragrance blender.Persia has a sensitive sense of smell that allows her to pick up on subtle undertones in a fragrance. This works well in her Aunt's shop where she custom blends fragrances for her customers. but also for the line of body products, lotions, oils, bath salts and such that they sell at Venus Envy.Things were going great until Bebe Wilcox moved to town and opened a competing shop. The problem with Bebe is that she doesn't want to play by the rules, she wants to be top dog right now, and the only way to do that is to run Venus Envy out of business, which she works hard at by spreading rumors about the products at Venus Envy, that the are inferior and shoty materials were used to make them, which is not true of the Venus Envy products, but is true of Bebe's products. Then the roses are sabotaged. Auntie and Persia grow their own roses, and in fact went to all the trouble to make sure that they were certified as organic, but the gardner finds pesticide residue on the roses, so he rushes samples to a friend at the University lab and he gets results back quickly and to Auntie and Persia, someone deliberately put a strong pesticide, and a large amount on the roses. In fact so much that all the roses will have to be dug out, and at least three feet of soil under them and all replace, but it will take two to three years before the roses are mature enough to harvest their petals for the Rose Water that is a hugh seller at Venus Envy!There isn't enough proof to get police chief, Kyle to do anything, so Auntie and Persia take matters into their own hands by staging a public argument and Persia moving out for show, then getting a job at Bebe's to snoop!This is just an awesome book. There are recipes in the book for a number of the oils that are talked about in the story. It's a well-written book and the characters are real and easy to relate to in some ways, and different than people you might know in your own life, but at the same time you can relate to them. I really enjoyed the book, and the concept of the upscale Bath and Body shop in a small town. It's a fun read.

    This is the 2nd in the story of Persia Vanderbuilt, now co-owner of Venus Envy, a Bath and Body Boutique. In round 2 of this series, Persia is sent by her Auntie to speak at a local Beauty Convention, where she meets the handsome Killian (owner of Donna Prima Cosmetics) Persia has a lot on her plate besides a new man. Someone has stolen Persia's recipe book, and the computer has been wiped clean of all its files. Add a dash of a completely destroyed rose crop, mixed in with a dead body, and youve got a recipe for a good who-dun-it murder mystery in the palm of your hands. I highly enjoyed this book and would reccomend it to others.

    Another fun installment in the Bath & Body mystery series. I really like this author's breezy writing style and Persia is a likable character. The only thing I didn't much care for about this book is that it seemed like some of the more minor parts of the mystery were never "officially" solved (i.e. the rose gardens). The author hinted at who was suspected of doing it, but there was never a concrete explanation of whodunnit, when or how. Probably just me being nitpicky because I enjoyed everything else about the book.

    The second was just as good as the first. I loved the mystery, and this time I was completely baffled by who the culprit was. Again, Persia is a woman who I would want to be on my best friend's list. I also really enjoy the tips included within the novel :) It makes the book come to real life a lot more. I'm even going to try a tip or two.

    Definitely a fun, quick read. India gives just enough suspects and clues to keep things interesting without confusing the story or giving everything away too soon. The best kind of brain candy!

    This cozy was particularly strong on plot. The matron in the novel is an extremely well developed character and lends an air to the overall experience that is pleasing. I think I will try another one.

    I never realized industrial espionage could be like this. Also if you ever get locked in a trunk, while being kidnapped, with no safety latch or access to the backseat - try breaking a taillight. If a broken taillight doesn't catch attention, a hand poking out might.

    I enjoyed this second entry in the series where Persia gets drawn into the world of corporate espionage (although on a small business scale). Looking forward to her next adventure.

    What a great mystery. Inida Ink has a nice way of writing. I 'd like to work in her shop.

    I wish there were more than 3 of these! Love the recipes and little tips included. Borrowed these but will buying them soon.

    The 2nd of three books at Venus Envy Bath and Body store is an easy read. I'll be sad to read finish this series when I read the next and last book.

    I was really drawn into this mystery quickly. Can't wait to see what develops in book #3!

    A little juicier than the first in the series but still a little too tame for my tastes. A nice read if you want an afternoon book to pass time.

    Not a bad book, but so unmemorable that three days after finishing it I had a hard time remembering any detail.

    I think I'm warming up more towards the main character, which is a shame since there's only one book left in the series. It's still very cosmetic centered, but I like the mystery.

    Light and breezy, with a bird's eye view of others' relationship mores.

    This was probably the weakest in the three book series for me. I am not into undercover story lines, but there were a lot of likeable elements in the book that still made it worthwhile for me.

    These are a sweet mystery series with a twist of romance. I read all of Ms. Ink's (Galehorn) series.
