Drape Expectations
by Karen Rose Smith

I love Karen’s books she knows how to write to keep the reader turning the pages. You will be kept on the edge of your set with book 4 of the A Caprice Deluca Mystery series.
~Bab’s Book Bistro

This is the most tension filled mystery of this series so far.
When you think you have it figured out, the plot twists. People are not who they seem at first.
~Laura’s Interests

This is my favorite so far in the series and the characters and strong story make it a fascinating read.
~Shelley’s Book Case

The mystery keeps you guessing to the end. I love the characters and how they keep coming back and showing us what they are up too now. It is more than just a mystery, it’s family, friends and neighbors.

Drape Expectations is a fun and entertaining mystery that I enjoyed from beginning to end.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

I love this series and enjoyed going back to Kismet and learning how everyone was doing…
~Community Bookstop

The victim certainly had the personality to make plenty of enemies, so suspects were not in short supply. Every question that arose seemed to only raise more. Lots of twists and plenty of intrigue kept this book moving at a quick pace straight through to the exciting conclusion.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

This book is a fun and compelling mystery that I enjoyed from beginning to end.

A fun cozy filled with colorful characters, lively dialogue and plenty of suspense, Drape Expectations, the fourth book in the Caprice DeLuca Mystery series by Karen Rose Smith, is the perfect escape for mystery lovers.
~Queen of All She Reads

This is a great cozy that will leave you guessing till the end.
~Melina’s Book Blog

The main character was great! Caprice is an animal lover and I could totally relate to that, she also loves vintage clothes and loves to ask questions.

Caprice De Luca’s former client and now friend Ace Richland–an 80’s rock star–asks her for a favor.  Can she quickly stage his girlfriend’s house to sell?  Widow Alanna Goodwin, a transplanted Southern beauty, will be moving in with him!  Immediately Caprice realizes Alanna’s southern charm can be turned on and off at will.  Caprice agrees to stage Alanna’s Kismet antebellum-styled mansion for Ace’s sake.  But she soon learns Alanna doesn’t have a genuine love for her cat Mirabelle and also uncovers a plot her new client is hatching to sabotage Ace’s comeback.  However, before she can tell Ace, Alanna is murdered and Ace is the prime suspect.

As Caprice investigates, she learns Alanna had more secrets than pie safes.  With her Cocker Spaniel Lady by her side, she tracks down clues and adopts Alanna’s cat.  In the midst of some of her own family upheaval–her uncle has moved in with her parents–she finds herself with a dilemma.  Grant Weatherford, her brother’s law partner, advises Ace and reveals more of his past to her.  Seth Randolph, the doctor she dates, wants her to meet his family.  She must choose between them.

Danger stalks Caprice.  Will her refresher self-defense course save her life?  Only if she keeps her wits about her and Lady by her side.
