Description:

These days, home stager Caprice De Luca’s calendar is a full house. Her grandmother’s health is failing, her wayward uncle is stirring the pot, and she’s torn between two equally eligible suitors. With so much drama in her personal life, Caprice is grateful to have Ace Richland, a former 80s rock star, ask her to stage his girlfriend’s house. But Alanna Goodwin is a tough customer who balks at Caprice’s ideas and all but commandeers the staging. Caprice almost isn’t surprised when the snappish Southern belle is strangled to death with a tieback from her tacky velvet drapes. But just as she draws back the curtains on the truth, Caprice realizes she may be next on a murderer’s set list…

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Caprice De Luca as she is staging her friend Ace's girlfriends house, but Alanna is a very difficult person to work with especially with her treatment of her cat.  Caprice ends up walking out on Alanna the next day when she tries to appoligizes Caprice hears things she doesn't think she should be listening to and leaves.  Not long after that she hears from Ace that Alanna is dead?  Did Ace kill her or someone else have more to gain with her death?

I love this series and enjoyed going back to Kismet and learning how everyone was doing including Nana and Caprice's Uncle Dom who appears in this book.  Alot more family dynamics in this book then previous ones and we saw as Caprice dealt with Grant and Seth the two men in her life, and saw where it was headed.  I am so addicted to this series as it offers something others don't that I read.
