Description:

In the latest novel in the national bestselling Domestic Diva Mystery series, it’s beginning to look a lot like murder…

The holidays are domestic diva Sophie Winston’s favorite time of year. But this season, there seem to be more mishaps than mistletoe. First, Horace Scroggins tumbles from a balcony during his office Christmas party. Then, Sophie’s neighbor takes a fall from his ladder while decorating his roof with lights. But it’s the cookie swap that really starts her wondering who’s naughty or nice….

Sophie arrives at the annual event with high spirits and thirteen dozen chocolate-drizzled gingersnaps. But when an argument erupts and a murder ensues, it becomes clear that the recent string of events is anything but accidental. Now Sophie has to make a list of suspects…and check it twice!

My Thoughts: 

This was great to return to Old Town and see what everyone is up too.  In this book Sophie Winston is getting ready for Christmas.  At a Christmas party hosted by Horace Scroggins who ends up falling from his balcony with a dagger sticking out at him, he is rushed to the hospital to recover.  Then there is the cookie exchange party hosted by Gwen Sophie's neighbor. Of course Natasha and Gwen end up in a heated fight, and not long after that Gwen is murdered and stuffed into Natasha's carriage house.

There are so many secrets this Christmas season like who is related to whom?  How will Sophie and pals figure out who had the most to gain with Gwen out of the way?  And the mysterious Christmas letter listing lies and truths for the neighborhood to figure out.

I really wish Sophie and Mars would get together but that may just be wishful thinking on my part.  I like the relationship between the two and bring Wolf back into this book I just haven't figured out what to make of their new relationship.  Can the two find friendship when the love had died out.  Granted Sophie went beyond the extra mile for Wolf but can you just back peddle to friendship I'm not sure about.

I love Nina she is hilarious the way she is always finding the juiciest gossip and helping Sophie with her sleuthing.  I am a huge fan of Krista Davis she rocks at everything she turns her hand at!  Can't wait to see what in next for Sophie and her friends!
