    Move over Davidson , 'cause Davis has cemented herself securely as a fierce, fresh competitor to your culinary throne!

    The Diva Haunts the House is Davis' fifth outing in the popular Domestic Diva series and is the best of the bunch. Davis has truly outdone herself with this volume. When it comes to culinary mysteries, Davis' cast of characters has all the ingredients to keep this series rolling out for many years to come. Davis finely blends mystery and comedy keeping The Diva Haunts the House entertaining and alluring. The Diva series is worth investing your time and you will fall in love with the author, the characters and the lovely Virginia setting. The Diva Haunts the House shines as brilliantly as cinnamon glaze on an apple spice bundt cake. As someone who grew up reading Diane Mott Davidson, all I have to say is, move over Davidson, 'cause Krista Davis has cemented herself securely as a fierce, fresh competitor to your culinary throne. Review first published as Book Review: The Diva Haunts the House by Krista Davis on Blogcritics.

    A better mystery

    Lots of cozies are into the "are vampires real" subplots now. Most to disastrous results (see Evanovich's 17th Plum book). Davis uses it here but it works out well and moves the plot to a logical conclusion. The Diva books is still one of the best new series.

    Well-Carved Mystery

    With preparation of scrumptious meals interspersed with crime solving, this tale will have you wishing you were there with Sophie as she and her friends unwrapped a killer's identity. This wonderful story boasts a well-carved mystery, a lovable cast of characters and a feel-good atmosphere in this charming and entertaining series that includes mouth-watering recipes.

    SPOOKTACULAR

    Domestic Divas Sophie Winston and Natasha Smith are trying to outdo each other with their Halloween plans. Sophie is in charge of the community haunted house while Natasha is planning a huge Halloween Bash at her home. Sophie is worried the fake haunted house is really haunted and Natasha has costumes and caters on her mind.

    Sophie was not really planning to attend Natasha's party but she ends up there to try to solve a small problem. When she arrives she discovers a much bigger problem, one a Natasha's guests, part of an elaborate Halloween display in the front yard, is not just playing dead, he is actually, really, very dead and he has two puncture marks on his neck!

    Is there a vampire loose in Old Town? As people stock up on garlic, Sophie is going to figure out who is responsible for all this mischief and murder!!




    This entire series has been terrific, but The Diva Haunts the House is so much fun. You could say it's "SPOOKTACULAR"! I caught myself laughing out loud several times. All the kids involved in the haunted house brought back some wonderful memories from way back when.

    The constant neediness of Natasha to independent Sophie is such a great contrast. How could the same man have fallen in love with both these women? The dialogue between any of the two or all three together is perfectly written whether serious or hilarious. The mystery my have you laying in a supply of garlic.

    I like that this book is being released well in advance of Halloween. There are wonderful tips, recipes and ideas for your own Halloween party, without the dead body in the front yard of course.

    You will love this Halloween adventure!

    Boy, this delightful Halloween romp certainly puts me in the mood for the fall and Halloween, this book is fun for adults and young adults alike since the are young people helping to solve the mystery. Once again, Krista Davis has provided me with a fun couple of hours of escape while following the adventures of Sophie and her wonderful friends.

    Check out Diva Haunts the House NOW! Excellent Read!

    This book was a very good read for me and I had to wait till almost the end to figure out who the mystery person was! Ms. Davis kept me in suspense and totally entertained throughout the whole book and I think anyone who likes a light, fast moving cozy mystery should read this book. Her others are just as enjoyable, so I'd say to anyone...get them and start reading! I couldn't set this book down until I had finished it!

    Just Okay

    i know this book has gotten good reviews but it wasn't that great of a read for me. I started reading this book a few weeks ago. It wouldn't hold my interest so I put it a side for a couple of days. Wanting to give it another try, I took it back out again. I really wanted to like this book. I normally enjoy Krista Davis's books, but even with giving this book a second try, I still can't finish this book. I just don't understand all the high praise for this book. Hopefully her next book will be more to my taste.

    Spooky Treat...great read for the season!

    Loved the Halloween "Diva"! It was great to see all of the characters that I love featured in the book. The addition of the "moms in law" made it even more enjoyable. Can't wait for the next book!
