Silence of the Lamps
by Karen Rose Smith
SILENCE OF THE LAMPS may just be the best in the series so far (It’s hard to pick only one). With it’s terrific storyline, packed with action, intrigue, and humor, this book is solid page turner!
~Lisa K’s Book Reviews
With lots of clues to keep you guessing at the identity of the murderer, this was a fast paced, fun read.
~The Book’s the Thing
Silence of the Lamps was another amazing add to this series packed with laughable moments and truly lovable characters, making this a fast-paced, fun read.
This has been a fun series from the start. It’s packed with fun, humor and murder that you won’t be able to stop reading.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Ms. Smith wrote a very exciting book!
I found a wonderful story full of well developed, well written characters.
~I Read What You Write!
Every time I have the pleasure of reading this author’s books, I fall in love with her writing a little more. She writes so graceful, funny has such wonderful characters.
Caprice is a fun sleuth worming her way into all the places and events she needs to try and solve the case.
~A Date With A Book
I love Caprice and all the DeLuca’s and seeing how they work together and really have that family togetherness you don’t always see.
I was left guessing who the real killer was, which is what I really like in a cozy.
~Melina’s Book Blog!
It was addictive and a total page turner, the storyline was well-developed, unpredictable, difficult to find the culprit before the end.

Caprice’s house staging is disrupted by Drew Pierson, a caterer who opened Portable Edibles, a business in direct competition with her sister Nikki’s Catered Capers. Nikki turned down Drew as a possible partner and he seems determined to undermine and bury her. However his successful launch of a deal for his blackberry barbecue sauce must have stirred up his enemies. When Nikki visits the house where Drew lives with his grandmother to resolve differences, she and Caprice find him dead–murdered with the base of a valuable Tiffany lamp.
Caprice discovers clues about Drew’s sly business dealings–from stealing recipes from another chef, to friends who hold grudges, to a sister who will now inherit half of her grandmother’s estate since Drew is dead. In the midst of her own romantic relationship upheaval, helping her uncle set up his pet sitting-business, assisting a friend care for a pregnant stray cat, Caprice follows the suspect trail, inadvertently putting herself in danger once more.
