There are some cozy authors that consistently blow me out of the water with the solidity of their book; Krista Davis is one of them.

Her essay are consistently solid, reliable mysteries that I look forward to reading when they 're released.

Other domestic newbies like me can appreciate the cooking, etiquette, and hostess tips throughout ( though I often disregard tips from Natasha!) I especially get a kick when Natasha and Sophie answer their respective advice columns with opposing responses to the same question! This is one of my two favorite cozy mystery series and they 're still as fun to read as ever! I was lucky enough to win a free advance copy of this nove in exchange for my review, though all opinions are my own.

I loved this ook, it never slowed down.

Between attacks, murder, past histories and much more you never know what is coming next, you are kept on your toes.

Her “ mentor ” and rival is Natasha is the Diva ( with a capital ) at a local TV show, and a drama queen if ever there was one.

I ’ ve only read a couple of these, and I jumped ahead to# 10 simply to satisfy a challenge task.
