Caprice De Luca Home Staging Mystery #5
Cats, dogs, recipes and murder too!
SILENCE OF THE LAMPS

Caprice's house staging is disrupted by Drew Pierson, a caterer who opened Portable Edibles, a business in direct competition with her sister Nikki's Catered Capers.  Nikki turned down Drew as a possible partner and he seems determined to undermine and bury her.  However his successful launch of a deal for his blackberry barbecue sauce must have stirred up his enemies.  When Nikki visits the house where Drew lives with his grandmother to resolve differences, she and Caprice find him dead--murdered with the base of a valuable Tiffany lamp.  
Caprice discovers clues about Drew's sly business dealings--from stealing recipes from another chef, to friends who hold grudges, to a sister who will now inherit half of her grandmother's estate since Drew is dead. In the midst of her own romantic relationship upheaval, helping her uncle set up his pet sitting-business, assisting a friend care for a pregnant stray cat, Caprice follows the suspect trail, inadvertently putting herself in danger once more.

MY REVIEW


SILENCE OF THE LAMPS is sure to light up your reading life.

Author Karen Rose Smith’s Caprice De Luca Home Staging mysteries have been a very welcome addition to the cozy mystery genre ever since book one, STAGED TO DEATH.
                     
I’ve enjoyed following this group of characters from the beginning. Ms. Smith has really let them grow, and evolve, bringing out new layers in each one of them with every book.

SILENCE OF THE LAMPS may just be the best in the series so far (It’s hard to pick only one). With it’s terrific storyline, packed with action, intrigue, and humor, this book is solid page turner!

Pick up a copy of SILENCE OF THE LAMPS, find a quiet spot, and prepare to be illuminated.

Remember to check out the back of the book for tasty recipes, and excerpt SHADES OF WRATH, coming December 2016!
