Description:

When a trendy, underground dinner club leaves some guests six-feet-under the table, entertaining professional and amateur sleuth Sophie Winston hopes she has all the right ingredients to put a murderer on ice in New York Times bestselling author Krista Davis's new Domestic Diva mystery . . .

Domestic diva Sophie Winston can whip up an elaborate event in her sleep, but as the hippest hostess she rarely gets to enjoy the full guest treatment. Which is why her best friend Nina Reid Norwood loops her in to the latest culinary craze: a pop-up gourmet dinner party. The celebrity chef, the epicurean menu, and the high-profile attendees are all a surprise, turning the decadent dining experience into the hottest ticket in Old Town. But Sophie's just pleased as punch that she finally has an opportunity to join her fellow foodies in some fun.

The posh party proves to be a recipe for disaster when Hollis Haberman sours spirits by bringing his own hot new dish--his young trophy wife. With Hollis's son and ex-wife in attendance, there may be more heat at the table than in the kitchen. But by aperitifs, Sophie discovers Hollis swallowing his last bits of air, and she must scramble to stop a killer before the swanky supper becomes anyone else's last meal.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Sophie and her friends as Sophie and Nina are looking forward to a little getaway but when bad weather gets in their way they make the best of Old Town.  After a dinner at a new place called underground dinning, an acquaintance of Sophie's ends up dead and all eyes look to his flashy wife Kelsey did she kill him or was it someone else?  

As Sophie digs more into finding out what happens it leads to ex-wives,  a young angry teenager, and a law office that holds it owns secrets.  

This book offers so much with so many people.  We see how life has been treating everyone from Mars and Natasha to Humphrey and Nina and many other people show up in this book.  I thoroughly enjoy this series as Sophie does he best to figure out what is going on with the murderer, and those who are impacted by the death of loved ones.  I can't wait to see what is next for our Domestic Diva and where she will head next!
