Book Review: Drape Expectations (Caprice Deluca Mystery #4) by Karen Rose Smith

Title: Drape Expectations
Series: Caprice Deluca Mystery #4
Author: Karen Rose Smith
Released: July 28th, 2015 from Kensington Publishing
Pages: 352 

These days, home stager Caprice De Luca’s calendar is a full house. Her grandmother’s health is failing, her wayward uncle is stirring the pot, and she’s torn between two equally eligible suitors. With so much drama in her personal life, Caprice is grateful to have Ace Richland, a former 80s rock star, ask her to stage his girlfriend’s house. But Alanna Goodwin is a tough customer who balks at Caprice’s ideas and all but commandeers the staging. Caprice almost isn’t surprised when the snappish Southern belle is strangled to death with a tieback from her tacky velvet drapes. But just as she draws back the curtains on the truth, Caprice realizes she may be next on a murderer’s set list… 

My Review

Caprice Deluca is at it again: staging homes and solving crimes one day at a time! When Caprice is called to help her friend, Ace Richland's girlfriend stage her home to sell, Caprice never imagined the situation she would find herself in once more. 

When Ace's girlfriend, Alanna, is murdered the police name Ace as the suspect and Caprice is once again on the case as she tries to clear Ace's name and figure out who the actual murderer is . 

Drape Expectations is the fourth book in the Caprice Deluca Mystery series and just as the rest of the books, it is a delightful, cozy mystery. Karen Rose Smith has a knack for cozies and which each book in this series, I find myself more and more in love with Caprice Deluca and her quirkiness along with the mysteries that keeps us readers on our toes. 

Drape Expectations is utterly captivating and demanded my attention. I could not put this book down until I knew who the real murder was and what happens with Caprice's lovelife. After three books, Caprice's choice between Seth and Grant is finally revealed. I don't want to give anything away, so that's all I will say for that ;)

The characters in Drape Expectations are as always engaging and delightful and I love Caprice's little furry friends. And best of all Karen has provided readers with some delicious recipes to try out! 

Another great book in this wonderful series by Karen Rose Smith!
