#FashionVictim by Amina Akhtar

Fashion editor Anya St. Clair is on the verge of greatness. Her wardrobe is to die for. Her social media is killer. And her career path is littered with the bodies of anyone who got in her way. She’s worked hard to get where she is, but she doesn’t have everything.

Not like Sarah Taft. Anya’s obsession sits one desk away. Beautiful, stylish, and rich, she was born to be a fashion world icon. From her beach-wave blonde hair to her on-trend nail art, she’s a walking editorial spread. And Anya wants to be her friend. Her best friend. Her only friend.

But when Sarah becomes her top competition for a promotion, Anya’s plan to win her friendship goes into overdrive. In order to beat Sarah…she’ll have to become her. Friendly competition may turn fatal, but as they say in fashion: One day you’re in, and the next day you’re dead.

My Thoughts
What a crazy read, but I really enjoyed it.  In parts, it really did remind me of The Devil Wears Prada but this version has horror mixed into it.
Fashion is cut throat, literally. 
It also has a splash of mean girls as well, Sarah by far is Queen Bee and is nasty to Anya and the others and makes them bow to her every whim.  Will she get what she deserves in the end?  There are so many twists and turns to this book - it can be intense at times but not overboard.
There are fashion disasters, murder, cheating, torture, you name it, it's all inside!

Drink Selection
 I'm pairing this book with a creepy cocktail fit for this time of year - The Black Cauldron!
