****½ Raiders of the Lost Corset by Ellen Byerrum. Mystery.

Yeah, I know. Another rave review. Get used to it--looking at the next few books on my TBR pile, I doubt it's going to change in the next few books at least.

This is the fourth book in the Crimes of Fashion series and, I think, the best so far. Fashion reporter Lacey Smithsonian travels to France and New Orleans in search of a corset in which was hidden jewels from the Russian revolution, after a dying corset-maker makes her promise to find it.

The treasure hunt caper variously involves her friends the madcap stylist Stella, lawyer Brooke and Brooke's boyfriend of DeadFed.com--conspiracy nuts, as well as an international "jewel retriever" and an ex-KGB agent as they follow a series of clues. There are also developments in Lacey's love life with her on-again, off-again beau Vic.

Raiders of the Lost Corset is a fast-moving and fun story full of the romance of adventure.
