  High fashion is in high demand and so is murder in New York City when mystery writer, Jessica Fletcher comes to town. She is in New York to visit her nephew Grady and his wife and son but is side tracked by New York's Fashion Week and Xandr Ebon aka Sandy Black from Cabot Cove, Maine where Jessica Fletcher resides. Sandy as Jessica prefers to call him is a evening wear fashion designer and Jessica is friends with his mother, Maggie.

 Grady has found a production company for Xandr's fashion show to display some of his most exquisite gowns and has dreams after returning from a disappointing stint in Los Angeles. At the fashion show teenage model, Rowena Roth who aunt's PR agency hype's ups Xandr's shows suddenly collapses  and dies on the runway at finale of the show. Rowena was a rookie and not well liked among the other models. If that wasn't enough supermodel Latavia Moore who once had a relationship with Xandr and her husband accused him of theft is found murdered in her apartment.

 These models are cut from the same cloth and Jessica wonders if there is a connection with these two suspicious deaths, each happening on the same day. She can't help but insert herself into the investigation of the deaths along with the New York City Police Detective who wants Jessica for more than her amateur sleuthing skills.

 Xandr's fashion world is full of possible suspects including him and it's up to Jessica to unveil her latest killer. Jessica Fletcher's foray into the fashion world was stylish and very entertaining in Murder She Wrote: Design for Murder.

 Although the premise of the story was not my cup of tea or something I don't relate too and show no interest in, the plot kept me engaged though out the story. It will always be a favourite series of mine that no matter the plot of the story may be Jessica Fletcher, mystery writer and ameture sleuth always has me coming back for more and if you can't help but love her.
