Mata Morrow, with wonder dog Toby in tow, has made her move to Portland at a pivotal moment for her budding career as a designer of travel clothing. Her entrepreneurial ambitions are threatened when old friend, Jo, appears on the scene with an urgent request for help. Jo has new information about a daughter she was forced to give up decades before. Unsettling details emerge surrounding the daughter’s birth story. As the hunt intensifies, a sinister pattern materializes. Buckling down to cut out a place for herself in the local fashion zeitgeist, Mata stitches together a vibrant personal network and enlists her brainy book group in the task of solving these mysteries. Will justice be served by weaving together the powers of the well read with the well dressed? The series lovingly explores the Portland environs while entering the psyches of the Pacific Northwest’s quixotic and quirky communities.

Lula Flann, a devotee of head-turning ensembles and witty women, writes Cozy-Noir from her home in Portland’s Alberta Arts District. A mad sketcher of clothing inspirations since receiving a collection of paper doll templates, Lula is drawn to patterns that make for psychologically colorful characters as well as clever wardrobe creations. Lula depends on her well-read book group to steer her to authors more contemporary than Eliot and James, Oregon’s landscape to lure her out backpacking or byway-riding and upon her fascinating wife to be ever open to the delights of loving an Enneagram 9.
