Mid-Century Glam Meets Murder Mayhem
Get swept away to the glamor of a 1950’s department store where four women’s loyalties, vanity, friendship, and detective skills are put to the test.
Audrey Penault once led a glamorous life as a model but now works as devoted secretary to Mr. Wynton. To her fellow employees, she is too vain and uppity.
Mary Jo Johnson, a wife and mother, longs to find her worth in the cosmetics department, but it may take a while for the shy housewife to discover her voice.
Vivian Sheffield owns and runs the bridal salon within Wynton’s. She is proud of her accomplishments and won’t let anyone take them away.
Gigi Woodard dislikes her job as waitress in the store’s lunchroom, but she is determined not to let her secret shortcomings cause her to lose the position.
These four women have much to dislike about each other, but they unanimously agree that Mr. Wynton is the best of employers and must be protected at all costs from someone who seems determined to see him gone for good. When other employee deaths occur, can the women band together to solve the murders, or will they discover it is one of their own bent on destroying Wynton’s from within?

    Delightful Cozy Mystery

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Jul 14, 2024

    There are so many reasons why I loved this book! It appealed to my love of mysteries, it's set during the 1950s. and there's an amazing group of characters. The Women of Wynton's is an engaging story of four women who have only one thing in common: they deeply respect their boss and they're determined to protect him from a murderer who's targeted other employees of Wynton's Department Store. Can they put aside their differences long enough to keep him safe? Author Donna Mumma confesses her fascination for the movies and fashions during that period and I share that same interest! I love the glamour that was present during that era, and Mumma's amazing descriptions brought it all back. During an enticing scene of a fashion show that Wynton provided for its customers, I could visualize the attractive models wearing beautiful dresses with crinolines under the full skirts, hats that matched the outfits, and gorgeous jewelry that glittered in the lights of the runway! So fun to read but there's so much more. There's also a powerful reminder of the racial inequality that still existed during that time. The Women of Wynton's is part historical fiction, part cozy mystery but its real strength is in the value of friendship! Friendship that can cross any social or gender barrier! If you're looking for an entertaining story with history, mystery, and a little glam, grab a copy of this book! I recommend it to all who enjoy Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
