Old Love Letters





Nina Reid Norwood

spills the beans, er, blogs for

The Domestic Diva Mysteries

by Krista Davis







Shh. Don't tell Sophie that I'm letting you in on our secret. I'm about to burst, though, and I have to tell someone. Poor Horace Scroggins took a very bad fall off a balcony. I won't go into the gory details but while he was bleeding and getting closer to death, he told Sophie to retrieve something and that "she should never know."

Sophie made a mad dash for it as soon as the rescue squad left. It turned out to be an old love letter. Sophie is my best friend in the world but that rat wasn't going to tell me a thing about it! I just happened to pick it up. It was a love letter from Brown Eyed Girl to Moondoggie! Is that adorable? It must be ancient. I had no idea that Horace was such a romantic. He must have kept that letter for decades.

I know what you're thinking. Sophie said the same thing. We should just leave it alone. He didn't want his wife to know about it. I'm married, so I understand where you're coming from. But Edith Scroggins is so mean that she makes the Wicked Witch of the West look like a friendly puppy. The woman is horrible. I've never met anyone so disagreeable and dour.

The thing is that poor Horace isn't doing very well. I think he wants us to find Brown Eyed Girl. This might be his last chance to ever see her. There's just one problem. Horace isn't able to talk. Without a name or address, how are we supposed to find her? Do you know how many women have brown eyes? Sigh.

What do you think? Should we mind our own business or do a little sleuthing to see if we can find Brown Eyed Girl?

  3. I love this series and have been impatiently waiting for the next book. I'm still hoping for some kind of closure with Wolf and I hope there is a new love interest for Sophie soon - not sure who I would want to fill that slot. Sometimes I think Mars...but maybe they are better off just good friends. Counting the days until June 3rd!

  49. Just finished "Murder, She Barked," and I can't believe I hadn't stumbled upon Krista Davis before this book. Loved Wagtail - and especially loved the way the book was written. Lovely setting, wonderful characters, super interesting story.

    I am SURE the Domestic Diva series is fantastic - and can't wait to get to reading them!

  56. If they can communicate with him..if he can blink his eyes or something, I would ask him first, if he wanted her found. If he did'nt want his wife to see the letters, he may not want her to know, or see the girl in the flesh..I think, for their own curiosity, they should try to find her..talk to her..but..before presenting her to him..he had better know it ahead of time...
