Krista Davis ~ Domestic Diva Mysteries
Gracious Living can be murder.

This is a Paperback Original series.  Our protagonist Sophie Winston is 40-something, divorced but still friends with her ex-husband, Mars.  She has bought out his share of the gracious home he inherited from his aunt which she dearly loves.   She and Mars both loved the dog they rescued that they share custody of Daisy.

A childhood friend/Rival of hers, Natasha Smith, has a Martha Stewart type TV Show, and everyone , including Sophie's own mother and sister quotes Natasha and expects Sophie to follow her instructions.  

In the first book, I decided that Natasha needed killing, and that was more than confirmed in the second book.  She's overwhelming, ego centric, demanding AND . . she's living with Sophie's ex-husband!   Sophie doesn't want Mars back, they parted amicabily and by mutual agreement, but she's getting way too much exposure to Natasha through him.

In the first book, she adopts an Ocicat kitten, Mochie, whose pattern is reversed ~ stripes instead of spots.   Either he is much better behaved than MY new kitten, or 'Sophie' is a whole lot more tolerant.

She is also approched by a Newspaper Editor to create an 'anti-Natasha' column with tips for regular folks who don't want to be made to feel bad about not doing everything the Natasha way. 
Both tips by Natasha and Sophie are included at the beginning of each chapter.   Some of them are actually quite good ~ others . . . well . . .
Ha!    I liked that there were occasional Web Sites shown when a particular product or concept was suggested.

I liked the first book more than I had anticipated, and went on to read the second immediately.

Ms Davis has a newsletter which I signed up for, and through that we emailed back and forth a bit.  She seems delightful.

She has a great Blog that lets you see the real Mochie and Daisy as well as where Sophie lives and lots of tips and recipes.

Krista Davis ~ Domestic Diva Mysteries

The Diva Runs Out of Thyme

(The first book in the Domestic Diva series)

Gracious living can be murder. First in an all-new mystery series - includes delicious recipes and great tips on entertaining!

Few can compete with Natasha Smith when it comes to entertaining, but her childhood rival, Sophie Winston, certainly tries. Natasha may have stolen the spotlight - and Sophie's husband - but Sophie is determined to rob her of the prize for the Stupendous Stuffing Shakedown. She just needs the right ingredient.

But Sophie's search for the perfect turkey takes a basting when she stumbles across a corpse. And when the police find her name and photo inside the victim's car, Sophie will have to set her trussing aside to solve the murder - or she'll be serving up prison grub.

The Diva Takes the Cake

The Domestic Diva has some wedding advice: Keep the food...lose the groom.

Sophie's sister Hannah is getting married. But when the groom's ex-wife is found hanging from a tree, the Domestic Diva fears her sister is about to wed a killer.

The Diva Paints the Town

Color this Domestic Diva puzzled-from the national bestselling author.

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.

The Diva Cooks a Goose
(Coming in December 2010)
