In All Dressed Up, Becca is surprised to find her husband, Blake, has invited her to a murder mystery weekend in an authentic old mansion. Blake is trying to take Becca’s mind off his fling with his secretary. After all, she did agree to try and make their marriage work. Becca, however, is still tormented by thoughts of his betrayal.
Becca eventually gets into the murder mystery spirit a little too much when she discovers one of the actresses has seemingly disappeared into the night. Can Becca solve the game, resolve the disappearance, and heal her heart by the end of the weekend?
Angsty! Angsty! Angsty! Becca’s constant rehashing of Blake’s affair gets old very quickly. There are no reader findable clues to either mystery so just settle in for a long slog through Becca’s heartbreak. I wanted an Agatha Christie novel and ended up with women’s fiction. All Dressed Up was not a good choice for me but it may be for you. 3 stars.
Thanks to Bantam Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
