LET'S GET COZY: THE DIVA DIGS UP THE DIRT - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE DIVA DIGS UP THE DIRT
A Domestic Diva Mystery
BY KRISTA DAVIS
ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Trouble in spades...

Determined not to be a garden-variety diva, Sophie Winston’s neighbor, Natasha, cultivates a plan to shine on television—using Sophie’s backyard. As the cast and crew of the makeover show Tear It Up With Troy bulldoze through her backyard—and vacation—Sophie retreats to her perennial boyfriend Wolf’s to replace a dead rose bush. But her tender deed goes awry when she digs up a purse belonging to Wolf’s missing wife.

As speculations sprout, Wolf bolts, and then a body crops up in a garden. Is Wolf’s thorny past raising a dead head? This is one case the domestic diva can’t let wither on the vine...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Krista Davis lives and writes in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  She resided in Northern Virginia for many years and lived for a time in Old Town, Alexandria. 

She really does have a gregarious Ocicat named Mochie who can open cabinets and leap to amazing heights.  Her dogs, including a Golden Retriever who isn’t golden and won’t retrieve, consider Krista’s writing career a convenient second job that allows her to be available for her primary job as door opener, canine cuisine chef, and walking assistant.

Krista’s fascination with mysteries was fueled by Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Agatha Christie.  Like her protagonist, Sophie Winston, Krista loves to entertain friends and family, but would just as soon leave cleaning to someone else.

I'd love to have someone makeover my back yard - but not if it means finding a dead body somewhere! Sounds like a great series.

So did Wolf do the disposing or is someone else responsible for the "planting" and pinning it on him? I guess you will just have to choose me so I can find out.
