Killer Characters New Releases

The Diva Haunts the House

Domestic diva Sophie Winston is getting into the Halloween spirit- her decorations for a community haunted house are so good, it's scary. Not to be outdone, rival domestic diva Natasha is throwing a spooktacular Halloween party at her house. But when Sophie arrives, she discovers one of Natasha's guests dead in a Halloween display, and a pale, fanged partygoer fleeing the scene.
Could the killer be a real vampire-the same one rumored to have lived in Sophie's haunted house back when it was a boardinghouse? Good thing a domestic diva never runs out of garlic.

  1. These all look so wonderful! I can't wait to read them all, scone and coffee in hand!

  2. Don't you just love the covers?? Makes me want to run out and buy every one... oh! That's the point... ;-)

  3. I always want to crawl into those kind of books and live there for awhile.

  4. Just ordered "The Diva Haunts the House" and cannot wait to read it! After seeing the other books, it looks like I'll have to expand my reading wish list.

  5. Ahhhh..... new books to pick up! Delicious!

  6. Thanks, Maggi! I hope you enjoy it. Halloween is such a fun season for a mystery.

    PJ, I feel the same way about cozy covers. Who can resist?
