The Diva Runs Out of Thyme (A Domestic Diva Mystery) By: Krista Davis
Few can compete with Natasha Smith when it comes to entertaining, but her childhood rival, Sophie Winston, certainly tries. Natasha may have stolen the spotlight–and Sophie’s husband–but Sophie is determined to rob her of the prize for the Stupendous Stuffing Shakedown. She just needs the right ingredient. But Sophie’s search for the perfect turkey takes a basting when she stumbles across a corpse. And when the police find her name and photo inside the victim’s car, Sophie will have to set her trussing aside to solve the murder–or she’ll be serving up prison grub.
Those librarians saw me coming a mile away. This book was on display when I went to the library to just pick up one book. I have so many books on my kindle that I need to get to, but I keep getting hold books ready to pick up.
Anyway, I liked this book enough to read the next but I wouldn’t mark it as one of my favorite cozy mysteries. Mainly because of the supporting cast. The main chick was fine but her mother and sister drove me crazy! My life could be a cozy mystery if I had that woman for a mother, only I’d be the murderer trying not to be caught. She was annoying and constantly trying to hook her daughter up with any man available. Davis was able to resolve two murders and a poisoning but not the fact that the mother told some delusional man that her daughter had a crush on him in grade school.
The book was fine, like I said, just not as good as the Jenn McKinlay books I’ve read.
