Silence of the Lamps by Karen Rose Smith #Giveaway


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!

With lots of clues to keep you guessing at the identity of the murderer, this was a fast paced, fun read.

About the Book: Business has never been better for home stager Caprice De Luca, but her personal life could stand a few renovations. Just when she thought things were getting serious with her boyfriend Grant, his pretty ex-wife swoops into town and nabs his attention. Uncle Dom is living with her parents and desperately needs a new job. And her sister Nikki's catering business is threatened when rival Drew Pierson starts eating away at her share of the market. Things could not possibly get more chaotic when Drew is found bludgeoned to death by one of his grandmother's antique Tiffany lamps--and Nikki is the number one suspect. Now, Caprice must act fast to illuminate the truth and clear her sister's name--before a cold-blooded killer puts her lights out next.

My Review:
This is my first introduction to Caprice. I really liked her and loved her outfits. It’s fun when reading a book to recognize a character who is similar to someone you know. Caprice has great friends and family, and enjoyed the characters involvement with each other.

There are plenty of ups and downs on the romance with several couples in the book. Very intrigued to see where each of the couples are headed. I enjoyed that even though one character may be struggling with their relationship, they definitely found a way to help and give advice to others.
Caprice is a fun sleuth worming her way into all the places and events she needs to try and solve the case. I’m very excited to go back and read the other four books before this one in the series, but I didn’t ever feel lost or confused. There was enough to intrigue me to go back and find out all the back stories that were vaguely referred to.
