Publisher's Summary

Determined not to be a garden-variety diva, Sophie Winston's neighbor Natasha cultivates a plan to shine on television - using Sophie's backyard. As the cast and crew of the makeover show Tear It Up with Troy bulldoze through her backyard - and vacation - Sophie retreats to her perennial boyfriend Wolf's to replace a dead rose bush. But her tender deed goes awry when she digs up a purse belonging to Wolf's missing wife.

As speculations sprout, Wolf bolts, and then a body crops up in a garden. Is Wolf's thorny past raising a dead head? This is one case the domestic diva can't let wither on the vine.

best yet

Hillary Huber can narrate the socks right off a book!!! I adore her voice and characters. She can even interrupt one character with another very convincingly. This was the best book in the domestic diva series so far. It makes me anxious to continue listening as the are released on audio. keep up the good work Krista and Hillary.

WOW, TALK ABOUT CHANGING THINGS UP

SO, I LOVE THIS SERIES. I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS. THIS ONE LEFT ME A LITTLE UNSETTLED BECAUSE OF SOME MAJOR SHAKEUPS, BUT I WILL LISTEN TO THE NEXT ONE IN HOPES SOMETHING NEW AND BETTER IS IN THE WORKS. HOWEVER, IN ADDITION TO THE SHAKEUPS THAT I DON'T WANT TO DIVULGE FOR FEAR OF SPOILING THE BOOK FOR OTHERS, I AM WONDERING WHERE VEGAS IS, AND HUMPHREY, FOR THAT MATTER. ON TO THE NEXT BOOK WITH THE HOPE THAT IT WILL LEAVE ME SOMEWHAT SOOTHED.

I love the Domestic Diva Series!

First off, I enjoy Hillary Huber's voice and the versatility of her characters voices; that's half of the enjoyment of audio books - the narrator. *Spoiler alert - as much as I enjoyed Wolfe and Sophie's relationship together, I always wanted Sophie to be with Mars. So, I was glad when it ended between them and on a positive note.* Krista Davis is my new favorite author. I read Mary Higgins Clark for years and she was my favorite, but Krista puts a humorous side on mystery that makes me choose listening to hers ahead of MHC. Sorry Miss Clark. This is my 6th book in and I'm about to buy my 7th and I can't wait to start listening.
