diva wrapsIs there anything that you wouldn’t want someone to find if you were in an accident? An old love letter perhaps?

Horace Scroggins didn’t see his mishap coming but while he sprawled on the ground waiting for the ambulance, he whispered a cryptic message to Sophie, ending with “She must never know.” Sophie Winston discovers an old love letter from Brown Eyed Girl to Moondoggie and removes it as Horace requested. And not a moment too soon. His thoroughly disagreeable wife almost catches her.

Poor Horace isn’t doing well. Sophie and her best friend, Nina Reid Norwood, debate what to do. Does he want them to find Brown Eyed Girl? What if he dies? This might be his last chance to see Brown Eyed Girl. But the letter is decades old. By now, Brown Eyed Girl could be anywhere.

Or should they forget about Brown Eyed Girl? After all, he didn’t want his wife to know about the letter. What would you do?

Find out what happens in The Diva Wraps It Up. Now available!!!

Sophie Winston loves the holidays but this year gets off to a rocky start. Mars also goes a little crazy trying to win the Clark Griswald House Decorating Contest decorating her house. Then Horace Scroggins falls from a balcony during his office Christmas party, and one her neighbors falls of a ladder while hanging Christmas lights and later gets zapped by set of lights too.    On top of that is the neighborhood cookie swap and of course things do not go as planned. When one of the bakers is found murdered Sophie starts to think all the accidents may be related and could even be connected to the murder. It is time for Sophie to determine who has been nice and who has been very naughty. The list just gets longer and longer.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

When writing a series you have to take the characters through the calendar year and it was truly a gift to visit Sophie and her friends for Christmas in the Spring. Winter has barely left Wisconsin so it was easy to read about the snow flying in Virginia while the sun was shining and the birds were singing here. The last time we were there for the holidays was in The Diva Cooks a Goose (A Domestic Diva Mystery) back in 2010.

This time Sophie really had her hands full, there was a lot going on.  There were several twists to keep the readers and the characters on their toes. Plus you know the crazy relatives always seem to come for the holidays.

Of course Natasha is right in the middle of everything too. She always decides that red and green are so overdone as Christmas colors she comes up with a few new color combinations. One of the colors she chooses is my favorite color but I would never build a Christmas theme around it.

Krista Davis has plotted out another fine mystery. Secrets, secrets, secrets! Nina and Sophie are trying to find a very special person. Someone isn’t who they seem to be and a Christmas letter has left everyone wondering and brings someone new to town.

This was a very captivating mystery. This entire series has been fun and entertaining but the author has made it clear the title does not mean the Diva mysteries are wrapping up. There is more fun and drama coming in the future for Sophie, Natasha and all the rest. This entire series in fantastic.
