Review: The Diva Paints the Town by Krista Davis (e-book)

First line: Dear Sophie, My miserable cousins have been pawing through Grand-pa's house, claiming they're there to spruce it up.

Synopsis from Barnes & Noble: When Sophie's neighbor-a reclusive professor-dies, his final wish is for the Domestic Diva to throw a dinner party in his honor, and he's planned everything down to the letter. But what no one planned for is the corpse of a student that Sophie finds in his house.

My thoughts: This is the third book in Krista Davis's domestic diva mystery series. It was a fun, quick read - the first book I read on my NOOK, and I flew through it! This time around, Sophie is in the middle of overseeing the Rooms and Blooms event when her neighbor, Mordecai dies. But, of course, his death isn't the only problem, he actually leaves Sophie a request - to plan and host a dinner for a group of people who turn out to be previous students' of his. In the midst of this, Natasha, Sophie's rival and neighbor, has decided Mordecai's house would be the perfect place for her next project - the Decorator's Guild house walk - and she decides to have a different person in charge of decorating each room. Filled with some familiar faces and some new ones, this book had me laughing out loud at times. It's quite fun following the antics of Sophie and her friends once they get involved in a murder. I also loved the little helpful hints at the beginning of each chapter - this time all dealing with home improvement. I look forward to seeing what Sophie finds herself mixed up in next.
