That's the question on everyone's mind when his ex-wife is found hanging from a pergola. As hidden family secrets begin to come to light, Sophie finds the list of suspects is almost as long as the list of wedding guests. Alas, charming Wagtail Mountain, Virginia, where dogs and cats are welcome everywhere is fictional. Plus, except for the main character, the majority were pretty irritating! I forgot that I hated this character in the first book and decided to read the second one.
The first victim turns out to be connected to Craig, which throws the wedding party into chaos. She takes over Sophie's house and also makes major changes there all the while criticizing Sophie on whatever she does. She's the most overly critical and tone-deaf character I've read in ages. And if you ask Sophie, her future brother-in-law is no prince. The story opens a couple of days before the wedding and the guests have started to arrive.
The Diva Takes The Cake Cute, kitchen cozy series. There was also the non-romance between Sophie and the Wolf, with the classic lack of communication between them, made worse by guess who?

Either way, Sophie must solve the murder in time to stop her sister from making the biggest—and possibly the last—mistake of her life. Still, the action is plentiful, the mystery good, and Ms. As hidden family secrets begin to come to light, Sophie finds that the list of suspects is almost as long as the list of wedding guests. Craig Beacham who sports a bad combover; that's about all we know about him from the first book, but in this book we get to know him much better.
A Domestic Diva Mystery In Krista Davis's second book, we find that Sophie Winston's much married sister, Hannah, is tying the knot with Dr. Her friends and family complain about being guinea pigs for her recipes, but she notices that they keep coming back for more. Fortunately there was lots of humour to keep be glued to the book to see what disaster would happen next. And that they all continue to think passive-aggressive, overly-flamboyant, anal-retentive Natasha is wonderful. And if you ask Sophie, her future brother-in-law is no prince.
Of course, this also means that the oh so delightful Natasha is doing all she can to muscle in on the action at every opportunity. Also, her romantic interest Wolf yes that is what they call him is a bit offhand with her, but does she confront him? Not only does Sophie already have the wedding to plan for, but a house full of guest, including her parents, her 10 yr. As family invited or not begin to show up for the event that is sometimes on and sometimes off, Sophie must somehow keep everything going all the while trying to figure out how to bring the wedding to a halt. I went to move on to the next one but accidentally read book 4, The Diva Cooks a Goose. However, it works perfectly here, almost the more the merrier.
However, Sophie hits a snag. There are parts of the book that are intended to be a bit confusing so you'll want to find answers. Aside from the plot was good, but I was a bit disappointed by the resolve -- a little too coincidental for my taste. All these different characters kept you on your toes because you were constantly trying to figure out who was doing what and who was connected to who, not to mention several red herrings. As hidden family secrets come to light, Sophie finds the list of suspects is almost as long as the list of wedding guests.
I found the humor throughout to be drily hilarious, especially Sophie's unfailing ability to whip up those incredible meals and also the tips that top each chapter heading. Sophie's not quite sure what it is about Craig, she just knows that whatever Hannah is about to get into isn't good. And if you ask Sophie, her future brother-in-law is no prince. Halfway through the book she finally told Natasha not to interfere, but did she listen? Shame- I had high hopes for this series but I won't be reading any more of them. A discount would be fine, but there would have been no way her sister would have treated her like trash if she would have kept her prices. The murder's were well plotted so I gave points to the author on that score.
Sophie's ex-husband is spineless, her mother is relentless, her friend the mortician is super creepy and yet Sophie lets him hang around mooning over her? But Natasha — who now lives down the block with Sophie's ex-husband — can't seem to leave well enough alone and keeps interfering, even talking the wussy Hannah into a different color scheme and theme that eventually turn humorously disastrous. When a dead body shows up, Sophie's suspicions are that Craig is the murderer and that just further adds to her unhappiness over the wedding plans. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with a brood of cats and dogs, including a snoopy Jack Russell terrier and a nosy calico cat. This is the fourth Krista Davis cozy I've read and they are all just wonderful!! Will the real killer be seated on the groom's side or the bride's? I also really feel bad for Natasha, I feel like she's not meaning to be mean or rude but she's just ignorant. Now that the wedding theme that ended the first book and moved through this one is complete, it will be interesting to see what direction the next book takes.
