Review: The Diva Cooks a Goose by Krista Davis (e-book)

First line: Dear Sophie, I nearly canceled Christmas last year when my children found their presents.

Why I read this: I love Krista Davis's Domestic  Diva series and I am using this to count towards the Cruisin' thru the Cozies Reading Challenge

Synopsis from Goodreads: A Scrooge steals presents right from under Sophie Winston's family Christmas tree. Then her sister-in-law's father show's up with a diva girlfriend just a month after his separation. More than one person is thinking of committing a merry murder-until it actually happens! With many under suspicion for the deadly deed, can Sophie find the murderer and restore the Christmas spirit before it's too late?

My thoughts: This is the fourth book in Krista Davis's domestic diva series and I loved it. It was a quick, easy read that centers around the holiday season. First someone steals all the Christmas gifts and even the food in Sophie's brother's neighborhood. Then the home organizer extraordinaire is found dead after a music box releases a combination of deadly gasses. But it's hard to tell if she was the intended victim - with all the re-gifting going on. Because Sophie's sister-in-law's sister is on the suspect list for the murder, Sophie steps in to do some sleuthing on her own. She's also trying to figure out what happened to all the stolen gifts.

I really enjoy how these books tend to have multiple mysteries going on that inevitably tie together in some unexpected and entertaining way. I also love all Dear Sophie and Dear Natasha tidbits that are given at the beginning of each chapter - and if you pay attention to these tips, they hint at something that will come up in the chapter. Some of these hints are definitely going in my "After-thoughts" notebook I started to keep track of different ideas/tips I've thought of/come across for the different things I do. I've read all the books in this series and can't wait for the next one to come out!
