To give the author her due this mystery has some unquestionable assets:
- writing is in order;
- editing is professional: there are no mistakes and or inconsistencies except possibly one at the end;
- the general ideas for plot and characterization are also quite good and interesting. Especially good is the idea of not having the two leads getting involved with each other: a very young and flamboyant gay stylist and a middle-aged straight woman are bound not to.

The problem is that the reading experience, while never painful or embarassing, never takes off. There are several humorous moments that keep interest somewhat alive but neither plot nor characters fulfill their potential.

The ending feels hurried:
- first, it is not clear and not plot relevant why the two leads do not meet for a while after the case is apparently solved;
- one of the two, hurt in the final confrontation with the villain, has supposedly passed some time at home but when he meets the other he still has bruises while his broken bone is already fine.

I suppose this book can make a nice light read, but it could certainly have been better.

OK I admit it upfront, I love a good cozy mystery - and Bias Cut is one of the best.

Two very different people - an older woman going through major hurt and a fashion enfant terrible - come together to solve a crime - with snap, pizazz and great charm. There are also some classic "pointing fun at the other generation" moments, and there wasn't a second when I wasn't completely caught up in the story.

Started last night and didn't want to put it down, then when I found myself awake at 5am, picked up where I had left off the night before - and read and read until the thrilling end - only to find it was work time oops!

Highly recommended, and I can't wait for more!

If you need proof that Indie books can actually be better than many conventionally published books, try this one. In my view it was enjoyable in every way-solid plot, interesting background, but best of all an especially wonderful friendship between the two main characters. Of course it is a mystery, so that "biased" me somewhat, but look at it this way: I've read tons of them!THE MAIN LINE IS MURDER (The Ginger Barnes Main Line Mysteries)

I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It's one I downloaded over a year ago but kept skating over in favour of something more "me"" as I'm no fashion fan. However, although it's set in the world of fashion it doesn't matter and you don't get bogged down with it in the least.
I just adored Laurie and his and Nicola's relationship especially as she took no nonsense from the little pixie (who I picture as a smaller and younger Julian Clary but I imagine the author's American and may not know of him) BUT she did secretly adore him and wanted to look after him. I spent a lot of the time going "awwwww"....I see the author has written another story featuring him but it's like a time-travel story and really not for me. I'd have liked to read another book featuring both him and Nicola in their present incarnations !! There were some great, cutting lines used which made me laugh aloud in places.
I did spot a couple of errors but nothing excessive, just careless. Ducking instead of duckling and apostrophes left off ladies' room. At one time she used peckish and I think peevish was meant but that was it which always impresses me as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 6 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got this book when it was free, but after the first twenty pages, I knew that I would have enjoyed it even if I'd purchased it. I really liked the relationship between Laurie and Nicola, and rooted for both of them. They each gave the other something that he or she was lacking, but not in an overly sappy way. Laurie helped Nicola feel present in her life and vital in his, while she provided him with the sort of non-maternal grounding that he desperately needed. I was drawn into the mystery in much the same way as Nicola; it wasn't initially clear to me why Laurie cared so much about who'd designed the clothes, but seeing how things escalated upped my interest, quickly. The characters, more than the mystery, were what drew me to this story. If you're looking for a multi-faceted mystery, this probably isn't it. I would definitely read another book set in this world featuring Nicola and Laurie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute, Fun Story 1 Jan. 2016
By gaby - Published on Amazon.com

First, I almost didn't read this because of the mixed reviews. I usually only read 3, 2 & 1 stars. I do love fashion so I figured I can always delete it. I was surprised. Though it didn't have aalot about fashion in the sense I'd be thrilled, I actually liked the book. Its not going to receive any rewards but I really liked the two main characters though completely different, their personalities meshed well together. I'm glad I gave it a shot. Its a light reading, nothing earth shattering but still good for an afternoon read. What I liked was there was not extra filler put in here.

Now as a side note to all authors. What is with the names of main characters? This author was not that bad but some of these authors make up the most ridiculous names. Do they not understand a book needs to flow & if I have to stumble on a name throughout the book I will do one of two things. Either delete the book because its so annoying or make up a new name for the character. A strange name will not make you look like a better author.

4.0 out of 5 stars As friends, opposites can attract 15 May 2013
By Dorothy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This murder mystery is well written and keeps you on your toes. The author has managed to give you a close bond with Nicola and Laurie both. The writing is easy to read, and you are able to believe the story, which adds to how you like this story. The ending is especially good as it takes you by surprise, or at least it did me. Once you start reading, you will not want to put it down.

The characters are believable, enticing, and true to life. You will get to know them as if they lived next door, especially Nicola and Laurie.

The only correction to the story I would make is changing Nashville's name to something else. They call her Nash, and I had in mind a male, as in Nash Bridges. Then the story referred to her as she and I was straightened out on that. Or if you can't change it, refer to her as she right off?

Nicola has had some really disappointing relationships and jobs. She is still working at getting over her last relationship who cheated on her and left her for the cheat. Although still bitter, she is still trying to get her life back on track but not sure where to go.

Laurie is an early 20's fashion designer, immature and quite gay. He dresses flamboyantly in attire and even with makeup. He comes from a rich family and has never wanted for anything. His mother dotes on him. His assistant, Jonathan, who was also his lover, just up and quit because he thinks Laurie needs to grow up. Jonathan thinks Laurie can better do this if he is not around.

Nicola's friend Nash asks her to do an interview with Laurie for her, and she ends up with a job working for Laurie the next day. He wants her to catalog some work he has on his computer, in books, and everywhere.

Laurie gets fixated on a set of designs that he 'knows' a certain fashion designer did not design but is passing off as his own. He believes he knows who did. Laurie and Nicola set out on a search for the designer, Joelle. This search takes them to Paris, and Nevada. The search for the truth takes them right back to New York and Joelle's brother.

The one thing I like about this book is how Laurie and Nicola form such a close friendship. I think, on Nicola's part, she needs to feel needed and Laurie sure is needy. At the same time, Nicola is trying to get him to grow up and get more self sufficient. This proves to be a large job for Nicola.

For those who don't like sex scenes, there are none. For those who do not like blood and gore, there is none. This is a great mystery and story where two people who are exact opposites come together to form a close friendship and fill each others emotional needs.

I recommend this book highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Fun I've Had With My Kindle In Ages 5 May 2014
By R. Diskin Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was pure pleasure! A sordid tale of murder and mayhem in the fashion world, Richter with this clever story takes the reader from New York to Los Angeles to Paris to the desert of Nevada (a town called Decline!) and back to New York before its "please-don't-end" last pages. The protagonist, Nicola, is a completely believable and immensely likeable modern 40-year-old woman who finds herself working for reality TV and fashion sensation, Laurie, an infuriating, selfish, fabulous 20-something diva. He would have won an early season of Project Runway, but he didn't need that show to take the fashion world by storm. They stumble upon several murders that propel the story from fashion world expose to vintage mystery thriller, and the ride for the reader is pure page-turning fun. Sure the murders are grim stuff (they always are), but at its heart this novel is a buddy story - the archetypal 40-is-the-new-30 really smart straight woman meets don't-tell-me-not-to-wear-sequins-at-a-Nevada-truck-stop gay celebrity upstart. The only thing I might love more then this book is that Richter recently retold the story of these characters, but this time set in a post-apocalyptic America. That novel, "Lonely Satellite", is next on my list to read.
