Shattered Silk by Barbara Michaels

Karen is coming out of a bad marriage and agrees to house sit for her aunt and uncle in their Georgetown home while they travel abroad.  Working part time in an antique store gives her motivation to get out of her funk and begin living again. 

After taking on commision designer gowns from her uncle's aunt the door is opened for her to buy vintage clothing from a few other elderly ladies on society.  This is where things get intresting.

Not only does her flame from college come into the picture, so does his sister who becomes a great friend, along with a detective who is drop dead gorgeous.  A co-worker is murdered, the house is broken into multiple times and everything seems to be going to hell in a handbasket.

An exciting conclusion makes Shattered Silk a great read along with the factual flavor of Georgetown and vintage clothing.
