Description:

Between training her new puppy, helping her sister with her baby, and searching for the perfect vintage dress for Kismet's Valentine's Day dance, home-stager Caprice De Luca has a lot on her to-do list. But she's never too busy to do a little staging, and she's looking forward to thawing February's frozen real estate market with her Hearts and Flowers Open House. Her client Louise Downing's romantically decorated home practically staged itself. But when Louise is found murdered, Caprice is forced to turn her attention from sweethearts to suspects. And as the truth comes out in stages, she discovers that Louise had more secrets than a box of chocolate truffles. .

My Thoughts:

This is the third book in Caprice De Luca series in this one a friend of the family winds up dead, but Louise seems to have some secrets the big question is whether those secrets cost her, her life?  Was it a disgruntal woman from Louise's past? Or was it someone she currently knew?  Who had it out for her?

Caprice's love life seems to be all over the place just when you think she has her relationships figured out it gets all messed up again.  Who will Caprice choose to spend her time with her doctor boyfriend whose intering somewhere else and seems not to have time to email?  Or has he given up on her completely or Grant the lawyer in town she has had a thing for since she was a teenager?  Just when you think she has it figured out it becomes a huge mess again.

I enjoyed this series it pulls you and won't let you go until you reach the end of the book.  This book had everything you could hope mystery, secrets hidden, all sorts of possible suspects.  I personally loved the ending which left you wondering what is going to happen now.
