It's Christmas time in Old Town, Domestic Diva, Sophie's most wonderful time of year but murder and mayhem soon befalls on Old Town when Horace Scroggins falls from a balcony during his office Christmas party. Then, a neighbor of Sophie's Baxter Babineaux falls off of his ladder decorating his house for the Annual Christmas lighting Contest. At the annual Christmas Cookie Swap hosted by Gwen Babineaux, tempers flare when Gwen snaps unflattering pictures of Natasha, Sophie's rival domestic diva and girl friend of Sophie's ex husband Mars.

After the cookie Swap, Gwen was found murdered by Sophie and her dog, Daisy, Wrapped up like A Christmas Present complete with a bow in Natasha's garage/work room. Neighbors wonder if Natasha, Domestic Diva could really be a cold blooded killer but it is soon discovered that many had it in for Gwen after she wrote a Christmas letter claiming some goings on that could be held true or untrue. Now it's up to Sophie and her friends to seek out the real killer before someone else's night becomes silent.

It's like visiting old friends when I pick up Krista Davis's A Domestic Diva Mystery. I'm always eager to see how the the relationship between Sophie and Natasha will play out and the descriptions of food and the combination of food and murder are the best. What I look forward to most when reading this series is the characters I will get to know. Always leaves me wanting more, a delightful addition to the series.


  1. Sounds like a great addition to a great series.

    1. It is, one of my favorite cozy mystery series even though I haven't read all the books in it...yet

  2. Can't wait to read this newest installment of the Domestic Diva mysteries. Krista has a way with her characters that leads to a good read!

    1. She certianly does, thanks for commenting
