In the third Domestic Diva mystery, a decorating project leaves Sophie Winston with a deadly case that has to be seen to be believed...
Sophie Winston’s reclusive neighbor, Professor Mordecai Artemus, has died and left his sprawling home to his Pomeranian. Sophie feels a tad guilty for not having befriended Mordecai, but at least she’s not as heartless as her nemesis Natasha, who’s descended on the house with a crew of interior designers and contractors to renovate the place for the statewide Spring Home and Garden Tour.
Even Sophie’s been assigned a room to decorate: the family room, where the Professor did most of his living—and where he died. In the midst of cleaning, spackling and painting, Sophie uncovers a second body—but when next she looks it’s disappeared! Now Sophie has to hammer away to discover the truth about the missing man, before her best friend gets nailed for murder...
Includes delicious recipes and entertaining tips!
