Caprice De Luca Home Staging Mystery #5Cats, dogs, recipes and murder too!SILENCE OF THE LAMPS
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.

From the Author:

         The Caprice De Luca home staging mystery series is so much fun for me because I created a heroine that has a lot of me in her. I'm a child of the 60's, a lover of the Beatles and now I appreciate antiques and retro fashion. (After all, haven't the 60's fashions just come back?) You will see all of this mirrored in my amateur sleuth.          It's no secret that I fell in love in college. My husband and I celebrated our 44th anniversary. I believe in the power of commitment and the hope that goes along with the promise of everlasting love. I'll be concentrating on planting clues and solving murders in my home staging mystery series. But a touch of romance will, I hope, add sparkle to all the books.          Readers often ask me about my pastimes. I have herb, flower and vegetable gardens that help me relax.  And year round I spend most of my time with my husband as well as four rescued cats, London and Zoie Joy, Halo and Miss Paddington, who are my constant companions. I believe rescued animals have a special bond with their adoptive parents because they are grateful!  Zoie and Paddington, our babies, are sweeties who brings us smiles, belly laughs and lots of kitty antics. I post pictures of all of them in my monthly newsletter, my blog, and on Facebook (KarenRoseSmithBooks).           Readers can also follow me on Twitter. On all social media platforms, I like  to chat about what I'm doing, how writing is going, books I've read...and cats. I post my latest kitty pics, gardening photos or cooking ventures. Interacting with readers is a past-time I enjoy. I'm looking forward to the release of book 5 SILENCE OF THE LAMPS in May 2016. I'm thoroughly enjoying the journey.  I hope you are pulled into Caprice's adventures with me.          Happy reading!
