A Domestic Bliss Mystery #7

"With her quirky cast of characters and seasonal decorating tips, this delightful holiday caper makes the perfect gift for under the Christmas tree." �Fresh Fiction

It's Christmastime in sleepy, snowy Colorado, and Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan have a sweet holiday � and their new romance � to look forward to�

The town, on the other hand, is up in arms! The beloved Goodwin Estate has been sold to enterprising out-of-towners and is getting a major makeover just in time for the holidays�putting interior designers Erin and Steve smack in the eye of the storm!

The estate�s new owners have a different idea of holiday d�cor than the rest of the community�one that includes inflatable elves, giant Santas, and some decidedly gaudy gingerbread facades�

When Erin�s blowhard ex-boyfriend shows up just in time to make Sullivan insane with jealousy, and a local building inspector is found strangled with a string of Christmas lights, Gilbert and Sullivan think that a Christmas getaway may be the safer plan�

But when a bungling sheriff accuses Erin of murder and there's another ghastly killing, the only way out for Erin is to turn detective (she�s done it before!). Her new project: design an answer to a mystery with too many clues�and far too many suspects!

While I enjoy the story immensely, the typos and grammar errors were a complete annoyance. I can handle a few here and there but this was almost ridiculous. That being said, it was a decent addition to the series and while I'm glad G&S are finally together, I do wish the author could have given us more of a relationship outside of the mysteries. The first 6 books they were so at each others throats they hardly had nice thing to say to each other aside from the occasional "warm feelings". However, I enjoy the characters despite all that and look forward to see who else drops dead during the next design.

I love this Domestic Bliss series and have read them all. I am distracted, however by the missing words and misspellings throughout. It seems to get worse with each eBook in this series. B&N-Can you possible do something about this?

The story is entertaining but the typos and grammatical errors detract from the story line. 6

Erin and Steven finally admitted their feelings for each other. The past few months have been amazing. They're working on an old estate turned Bed and Breakfast for the holiday season. However this job is nothing like they expected. First off, the building inspector and relative of the house manager ends up strangled after refusing to pass the house. With nitpicking details, it makes Erin wonder if there's someone sabotaging the project. Before she has more time to think about this particular problem, an unexpected visitor wrecks havoc. Her ex-boyfriend from college appears and plants one on her. She barely has time to react - but she doesn't push him away immediately. Now Steve's unhappy with her. Secondly, the house doesn't feel safe anymore. There's too many lies, strange occurrences, and near accidents to feel at home. Nevertheless, Erin and Steve continue their decorations of the rooms in the Twelve Days of Christmas theme. Erin starts digging because she can't stand the tension of the house. Will her questions trigger the killer to come forward again? My Thoughts: I really like this series - for the decorating, the romance, and Erin - who is feisty, smart, curious, and a little snarky at times. Her relationship with Audrey adds a deeper dimension to the series. Plus, I do adore Christmas novels.

I have read all the previous books. I like reading as their lives go forward. Great story line; funny and informative on decorating tips. Looking for the next book.

In Colorado, first they were enemies; then they became competitors. Erin and Steve joined forces to become Gilbert and Sullivan Designers, which ultimately led them to become lovers. They win the commission to remodel the Godwin Victorian mansion into the Snowcap Inn Bed and Breakfast. The previous owner Henry Godwin had a case of wanderlust so he sold his house to business mogul Wendell Barton, Domestic Bliss TV star Audrey Munroe and Pop star Chiffon Walters. Wendell also bought other property awhile ago on the nearby mountain and he created a ski resort, which will change the complexion of Snowcap, Colorado with an influx of outsiders. The locals are outraged encouraging Angie the building inspector to find reasons to prevent the inn from operating with guests on Christmas Eve as envisioned by Wendell and associates. Erin finds Angie's dead body out doors. She realizes her eggnog is laced with poison. When a second homicide occurs, Erin investigates, which places her in the crosshairs of a killer and of an incompetent sheriff. The whodunit is fabulous because it is cleverly constructed with red herrings and twists to keep the reader, police and Erin guessing who the killer is. The romantic subplot blends well with the detecting especially as Erin's former boyfriend arrives to add tension. Leslie Caine has written a charming colorful cozy starring a captivating amateur sleuth and the men in her life. Harriet Klausner
