Description:

SHADES OF WRATH is book 6 in Karen Rose Smith's Caprice De Luca Home Staging cozy mystery series.  Between her booming business, her family, and her work rescuing stray animals, home stager Caprice De Luca's life is packed. But when a murder unsettles peaceful Kismet, Pennsylvania, she adds amateur sleuth to her resume. 

Thanks to a wealthy patron, Kismet's women's shelter, Sunshine Tomorrow, has inherited a run-down mansion. Now the shelter's director, Wendy Newcomb, wants Caprice's decorating expertise. Caprice is happy to help, but when she glimpses a few heated encounters between Wendy and some locals, she fears that Wendy may be in need of protection herself. 

When Wendy is found dead inside the old house, Caprice is compelled to poke around in her affairs--and discovers she had her share of enemies. Now, with countless clients, a TV gig that could make her a household name, and rumors of a marriage proposal on its way, Caprice must find time to design an investigation that will lure a crafty killer into the wide open--before someone else winds up in a state of permanent disrepair...

My Thoughts:

In this book Caprice De Luca is working on a women's abuse house to help decorate it when the owner ends up murdered and Caprice wonders if there is more going on than meets the eye.  Could the murderer be one of the enraged husbands whose wives disappear.   Will she figure it out in time or will the murderer strike again?

I love this staging book mysteries.  They are such fun seeing what Caprice, Bella, Nikki, and Vince are up to.  This one didn't disappoint.  It made it such a pleasure to spend sometime in Kismet and seeing how Caprice unveils a murderer.

Anyone who loves decorating and mysteries will definitely enjoy reading about the whole De Luca family and how they handle various situations!  Can't wait to see what is next for Caprice.
