When Sophie Winston's neighbor - a reclusive professor - dies, his final wish is for the Domestic Diva to throw a dinner party in his honor, and he's planned everything down to the letter.
But what no one planned for is the corpse of a student that Sophie finds in his house...or the mysterious will that shows up asking the question: Did the professor cover up a huge crime?

I enjoyed the 2 previous installments in this series. Fun, light cozy mystery with lots of humor and excellent narration (Hillary Huber is one of my favorite narrators - good range of "character" voices and she does male voices very well too!). This book, however, was just too silly. I could not even get behind the story, just sort of outrageous/ridiculous/convoluted all the way through... The ending was out of left field, just kind of pulled out of nowhere... I will purchase the next book in this series (if the series continues), hoping that it will be better than this "slapstick" fluff...
Enjoyable listen for a light read. Not too intense but also a decent storyline and unsuspecting culprit when all said and done. If you are looking for a fast paced intense book this isn't for you. If you are looking for a fun little read to pass time, enjoy yourself a bit without having to think too much, this is for you! I listened to it on my way home from work as a way to unwind. Very enjoyable. Great narrator too.
