Book Tour: Beauty to Die For

I recently received a copy of the book "Beauty to Die For : A Spa Mystery", for review. Supermodel Kim Alexis is the co-author.

When I really get into a book, I feel as though I am watching it on tv.  When I was reading Beauty to Die For, I felt as if I was watching a soap opera - which isn't a bad thing, as I am a soap fan. I had a very easy time getting into the book, and it was a great escape at the end of a long day with the boys. It's kind of a combination of romance and mystery, with more focus on the mystery.  There is a romantic story going on as well, but it's not your typical, steamy novel.

Below is the press release for the book:

Kim Alexis: A Model Storyteller

Supermodel co-authors B&H's new spa murder mystery, Beauty to Die For

"Supermodel Kim Alexis has taken her experiences and her heart for healthy living and woven them beautifully in this cozy mystery. Beauty to Die For will leave you cheering for Juliette and Marcus as they work to solve their feelings and the murder." ­ Supermodel Cheryl Tiegs

NASHVILLE ­ Supermodel Kim Alexis was one of the most famous faces of the '80s, walking alongside Iman, Christie Brinkley, and Kelly Emberg on the runways. Today, she is an avid fitness enthusiast, public speaker, and her most recent venture: mystery author.

Along with best-selling author Mindy Starns Clark, Kim's new bookBeauty to Die For: A Spa Mystery (B&H Books, August 2012, paperback, $14.99) introduces us to Juliette Taylor, a fictional former supermodel who co-owns a beauty line. But when Juliette's products are the victim of a counterfeit scheme, it sets into motion a sinister chain of events.

When Juliette arrives at the Palm Grotto Spa to host a spiritual retreat for women, she runs into an old modeling colleague, Raven, who had always been disliked in the industry. Demanding and rude, Raven doesn't have a lot of fans at the spa, either.

When Raven makes a cryptic threat to Juliette ­ and is then found dead, hours later ­ suspicion is directed at Juliette. Juliette has a rocky history with Raven, and certainly knows how to use beauty products Š but for murder?!

Now, Juliette must find the actual killer before the police really take care of her

A crackling story co-authored by one of America's most beloved supermodels, Beauty to Die for is a must-read for mystery fans and spa lovers alike.

KIM ALEXIS has been the spokesperson for several iconic American beauty brands, such as Revlon's premium Ultima II line (replacing Lauren Hutton), Tiffany Perfume, Fitness Quest, and many more. Her desire is to encourage other women to be their best in all areas of life, from health, to beauty, to spirituality. She is based in Florida, married to NHL alum Ron Duguay, and together, they are the proud parents of five children. To learn more, visit
