A Crime of Fashion…

Nancy Drew meets The Devil Wears Prada in the debut of this action-packed mystery series

Author Carina Axelsson, is a former professional model and draws her inspiration for this teen sleuth series from years of experience on the catwalk and a long time love of Scooby Doo.

Axelle Andersen wants nothing more than to be a teen-sleuth despite the influence of her pushy fashionista aunt, Venetia. So when top fashion designer Belle La Lune goes missing, and Aunt Venetia becomes a prime suspect, Axelle must go undercover as a model during Paris Fashion Week to uncover the truth behind Belle’s disappearance and clear her aunt’s name.

She’s thrust into a frenetic world of castings, photo shoots, and sequins, while struggling to fit in and track down clues. Can Axelle solve a kidnapping and survive the world of fashion?

With educational back matter that includes information about the fashion industry and a glossary of fashion terms, Model Undercover: Paris is a marriage of fashion and mystery that is perfect for aspiring fashionistas and teen sleuths alike.
