THE DIVA PAINTS THE TOWN by Krista Davis

In the third Domestic Diva Mystery, set in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia, Sophie Winston must fulfill a bequest for her reclusive neighbor, Professor Mordecai Artemus. A man she neglected to befriend—oh, the guilt—and who left his house to his Pomeranian. The sprawling home is slated for the statewide Spring Home and Garden Tour, where several designers compete by decorating a room within the house, including Sophie’s nemesis, Natasha.

The assignments hand Sophie the family room, where Mordecai did most of his living, and where he died. It’s also the place she’s to serve the bequest luncheon. But amidst the cleaning, spackling, painting, and staging to Mordecai’s specific instructions, Sophie uncovers a body—one that needs to be seen to be believed. She has to hammer away at the truth before her best friend is nailed for murder.

Why I Chose This Book

  • Krista Davis had me hooked on this series with the first book THE DIVA RUNS OUT OF THYME—well-drawn characters and settings. I also love her Paws and Claws Mystery series and am looking forward to reading her Pen & Ink Mysteries.
  • Cozy Mystery
  • This book was the next in the series for me, and I recommend reading them in order.
