Description:

Cozy mystery, Book 1 in the Caprice DeLuca home-stager mystery series

Caprice DeLuca stages houses for high-end clients. When she discovers a body in the castle-mansion she staged to sell and starts asking questions, she finds herself in danger. On the way to solving the murder, Caprice's large Italian family helps and hinders. She also finds romance with Dr. Seth Randolph. But does her brother's partner, attorney Grant Weatherford, care about her, too? Or is he just worried she'll get herself killed and her family will blame him?

My Thoughts:

This is a new series where Caprice DeLuca does house staging for clients who want to sell their house.  When her friend Roz's husband winds up dead it's up to Caprice to find out who really had an axe to grind with Roz's husband.  Of course it doesn't help that Ted's Roz husband was having an affair and had an obsession with daggers.  Who had the most to gain by his death?  His wife? His mistress?  Or someone through his company?

This was a cute mystery that introduced the DeLuca's Nikki, Bella, Caprice and Vince along with their parents and grandmother.  We also met two men who have an interest in Caprice one being a successful lawyer Grant and the other being a doctor Seth.  I really enjoyed this series and can't wait to read the next one!  Next in the series:
