Deadly Decor (Caprice De Luca Mystery #2) by Karen Rose Smith

Quiet Kismet, Pennsylvania, may look like any other small town, but as a home stager, Caprice De Luca can see behind closed doors--and it seems someone has designs on murder. . .Life is a full house for Caprice these days. She's dating, she's rescuing adorable cocker spaniels, and she's decorating the roomy interiors of Kismet's most well-heeled residents with fun fantasy themes. But she's worried about her pregnant sister. Bella's marriage is coming apart like a bad wallpaper job, and to make matters worse, she's decided to meet up with a former flame Bob Preston, a house painter Caprice frequently employs.

With all eyes trained on Bella's husband, Caprice shifts her attention from finding the perfect curtains to finding the perfect culprit. . .

My review: Deadly Decor  (Caprice De Luca Mystery #2) by Karen Rose Smith

4 stars

Now I have read all three books so far in the Caprice De Luca Mysteries.  I can't wait till next one comes out.  Deadly Décor was good.  Because I had read the third book first some of the storyline I already knew.  It would be better to read the books in order.  They can stand alone but to know the regular characters story line it works best.

This is another good cozy mystery.  I love the characters, all the animals that are so much part of Caprice's life.
Caprice is single.  She is dating a doctor.  There is another guy in her life though.  She wears vintage clothing. Stages houses, loves to rescue strays, and is curious.

Caprice's little sister Bella and her husband Joe are having problems with there marriage.   Bella finds a old high school boyfriend dead.  Bella and Joe become the main suspects. So Caprice is ready to try and find the answers to who killed Bob.

This is a clean cozy that keeps the interest of the reader in what is happening around Caprice's life.  I hated putting the book down.

I wanted more romance for Caprice.  My vote is for Grant but I do like Seth too. 

There are recipes in the back of the ebook.

I bought the ebook from Amazon
