A Domestic Bliss Mystery #2

“Sparkles with charm, design lore, and a sleuth with a great mantra. Cozy fans will embrace the Domestic Bliss series.” —Carolyn Hart, Edgar Award-winning author of Letters from Home

“An appealing heroine and warm, genuinely winning voice.” –Publishers Weekly

“A fast, breezy read.” –The Mystery Reader

“A great mystery that puts you on the edge of your chair until the end!” –Fresh Fiction

“Interior design is a hot topic, and Caine delights readers with her enigmatic protagonist…humor is never in short supply in this fun, engaging mystery, which is certain to delight fans of cozies.” –Romantic Times

Smart, talented interior designer Erin Gilbert is becoming great friends with her free-spending client, Laura Smith, whose stunning mansion is brimming with rare, expensive antiques…until she realizes the fabulous treasures she so carefully acquired for Laura have been completely replaced with fakes! When Laura's explanations sound as phony as the furniture, Erin is compelled to dig deeper into Laura’s glamorous life—the real antiques have got to be somewhere—until her investigation is interrupted by a murder!
It seems Erin has revealed the same cunning con artist who all but ruined her handsome-but-bitter archrival, Steve Sullivan. Erin wants answers but Sullivan dreams of revenge; so when detectives are called in, their perfect suspect is…the charming (almost, maybe, not quite, perhaps boyfriend) Steve Sullivan himself!

Now Erin must chase down the real killer before the cops drag Sullivan away in cuffs…that would put a real damper on their budding romance!

    Lame Premise

    I thought this book was just so-so - a light read, which plot I will only vaguely remember about 10 minutes from now. Anyone with half a brain could figure out where this story was going and the relationship between 'Gilbert' and 'Sullivan' was so cliched.

    Exciting amateur sleuth tale

    Interior designer Erin Gilbert helps her clients Laura Smith and David Holland redecorate their mini-mansion with beautiful and costly antiques, and becomes friends with the woman. After an alteration with a man wearing a wig and carrying a gun, Laura flips him using a judo technique. When Erin goes to her home to check on her, she discovers that the valuable antiquities were replaced with cheap reproductions.................... Laura tells the interior decoration that the antiquities are in storage where they will be safe and appreciate in value over the years. When Erin informs David, he insists he knows nothing about the switch because he was out of town but he can¿t see properly because he lost his glasses. Erin learns that Laura is the person who scammed interior decorator Steve Sullivan out of $300,000 dollars. Steve and Erin watch Laura¿s house. When Dave drives out they follow him to a storage facility where they find Laura¿s murdered body. Erin starts her own investigation discovering that everyone who knew Laura had a reason to kill her.................... It is hard to believe that every person she was involved in ended up helping her and then wanting to see her dead but Laura was one such person, the perfect villainess and victim. There are so many people she hurt who had a motive to kill her that readers will find themselves trying to figure out who the killer really is. The heroine pursues her investigation even though there have been attempts made on her life but she is determined to identify the perpetrator so she can regain her own piece of mind. This exciting amateur sleuth tale is the perfect beach book.................. Harriet Klausner
