Glossed and Found is the third book in the Bath and Body Mystery series by India Ink. I am one that just simply has to read books in the order they are meant to go in, but as I read this book, parts of the story seemed familiar, like I had read them before, but yet other parts of the story I knew I hadn't read before, and I know I didn't read the second book before a couple of days ago. I am thinking I might have picked this book up at one time, not realizing it was book three, and then maybe re ...more

Persia Vanderbilt blends custom scents for her Auntie’s bath and beauty shop and day spa, Venus Envy in the town of Gull Harbor, Port Samamish Island, Washington.

All this while solving murders with the help of her staff, her beloved Auntie Florence, her hot boyfri ...more

This is the 3rd book in the series. If i had read the other 2 never would have made it to this one.I hear this was the last book in the series not sure why but glad i didn't get attached to characters.
The author had a strange style and the book had somewhat jerky style and tone. The main character was cited in another review as cardboard. i have to concur with that.
The main focus of the book was supposed to be the disappearance of Lisa, a co-worker and friend.At times the plot was overshadowed

This is the 3rd Persia Vanderbuilt book, and im sad to see the series come to a close. In this installment, one of Persias empoyees goes missing. Persia finally comes to a truce with Kyle and helps him snoop out the clues as to Lisa's whereabouts. In the meantime, Persias ex, Elliot, is drunk on the loose and vrey triggerhappy. What a hectic little holiday its been for Persia and the gang!

This is a great little cozy series and i truely wished the author would contine on with the series. I reall

I enjoyed the first two books in this series and was looking forward to the 3rd installment. It was okay, but certainly not great. I loved the descriptions of the various landscapes and holiday festivities. Most of the characters are likable, but I have a hard time feeling anything for Persia. She's seemed a bit like cardboard in all of the books, but in this one she was a downright annoying know-it-all. I did enjoy Aunt Florence and the rest of the usual suspects. Another thing that bothered me ...more

I really liked the last book in this series. I wish there was more written, but I understand wanting to continue on other works.
Oddly enough, I noticed some writing mistakes. It wasn't bad, it didn't interrupt the story, and I completely understand typos every now and again, but I had found at least four mistakes in the second book, and another in this last one.
All in all, the books were great and I enjoyed reading them!
Venus Envy is a beauty parlour, Persia Vanderbilt is one of the resident experts. The store hires a new makeup artist, Lisa, who disappears on the night of the Thanksgiving Gala. Her car is found near a pier and the police conclude that she drowned. Lisa had been looking into some missing inheritance money. Persia decides to help investigate while also avoiding her troublesome ex.

As a cosy mystery it works, I enjoyed the read.

This was a good, final instalment in the bath and body mystery series. The mystery was good, although not a murder mystery, and it was fairly obvious to me who the culprit was. But I enjoyed the character development and I'm grateful to the author for not leaving any loose ends, as there were no more books written in this series.

This book was about a missing person case and also a domestic violence case. Not my usual fare in cozy reading. The characters are well drawn but the case just didn't pull me in. I wish they used their make-up, bath items more in the book itself.

Pretty steamy love scenes though. More of a romance adventure book.

This one may be my favorite one yet. There was something I really liked about it even though it didn't seem like there was a lot going on with the mystery but the characters seemed to develope a lot.

The 3rd in a three book series that's very readable. By this 3rd book, however, I was fairly tired of Miss Perfect Persia and her continual workouts and tank tops and the long scenic descriptions. If there was a 4th book, I don't think I'd have read it.

I think this was a good finisher to the trilogy of books. It wove three storylines together with new information and facts established in previous books. I liked Persia's character growth a lot in this one as well.

So far I've enjoyed this book more than the first two of the series I read. Maybe it's because the underlying theme is different kinds of love between individuals, plus you learn a little bit more about perhipheral characters.

I was happily surprised with this book and enjoyed it much more than I expected to. I am sorry to see the series end.

Entertaining as usual. I like this series. It's light, but has a good plot.

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

great plot, but the writing is only 2 star. For comparison, I give Dorothy L. Sayers 5 stars.
