I love this series it was my first adult reading series of cozy books as an adult. I got drawn in and have named my laptop hard drive Domestic Diva I think everyone has a little Diva in them. I love how we got to see more about the characters relationships and such it wasn't just about the mystery which was great a mystery with alot of history behind it. I love those types of mysteries where you learn history on the people like when Sophie discovered Wolf's wife and that whole mystery. Ms. Davis really knows how to turn out a fabulous mystery that keeps you entertained for a long time after the book is done.
