Overview

A Domestic Bliss Mystery #1
“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
“TREND: For killer decorating tips, pick up Death by Inferior Design…advice is woven into this whodunit featuring rival designers as sleuths.” –House and Garden Magazine
“This story is delightful in every way…entertaining, humorous, serious, and totally engrossing from the first page to the last. And sprinkled throughout are tasty decorating tips.” –Midwest Book Review
“Her latest decorating job will make you feel like you’ve stumbled across the deadly side of HGTV.” —Jerrilyn Farmer, #1 Los Angeles Times bestselling author of the Madeline Bean mysteries
Interior decorator, Erin Gilbert heads to picturesque Crestview, Colorado for a friendly (if sharks are friendly) competition: She’ll design a room in one home; and the impossibly handsome Steve Sullivan—her main rival—will do a room in another. The prize? A big feature in Denver Magazine, showcasing their interior design business.
Who could have dreamed the uproar to ensue in a neighborhood full of eccentric homeowners, jealously hidden secrets and a few marriages in need of total makeovers. Trapped together in the midst of chaos, could the charming Steve turn out to be a…friend?
But between her custom, cushy pillows and dramatic drapery, Erin uncovers a very undecorative dead body, too many suspects, and a killer who seems to have designs…on her!

It was entertaining at first but then dragged on with implausible events and characters. Read it to the end and was disappointed by all the loose ends of the plot and the main character's attitude.

Cute story. I didn't want to put it down. The plot twists were fun but some characters were a bit shallow and not believable.

This story includes a mystery, a little romance and a lot of interior design. It follows the idea of the TV show Trading Spaces in which neighbors assist in redecorating one room of the other's home. Add in a murder and some crazy neighbors and it's a fun read. Definitely more chick lit due to all the decorating stuff.
