Deva Dunne is an interior designer who is struggling to make a go of her business. So, when Francesco Grandese hires her to decorate his home, she is thrilled. Money seems to be of little consequence to Francesco; he insists upon only the best. But, when Deva and her boyfriend, Rossi, a police detective, attend a dinner party at her client's home, another guest is murdered. Despite Rossi's warning to stay away from Francesco, who is alleged to have some unsavory friends, Deva refuses to back off, putting herself in serious jeopardy.
I highly recommend "Killer Kitchens."
Jean Harrington did it again.
The novel is well written and is very enjoyable.
I am a mystery lover and Jean's novels give me the satisfaction I want.
Things are looking up for Deva both professionally and personally. She is hopeful her first commercial design for her good friend and chef Chip Salvatore will prove beneficial for her design business. Deva is now dating Lt. Victor Rossi and she is quite happy with their new relationship. But Deva's life is quickly complicated by an explosion at Chip's restaurant and some unexpected news in her personal life.
Deva's new client Francesco Grandese has an unexpected connection to Chip that raises some very interesting questions about the explosion that rocked Chip's restaurant. Deva has a few doubts about Francesco, but he wins her over with his impeccable taste in antiques and real estate. Despite Victor's warning to steer clear of Francesco, Deva cannot turn down the job that could secure the future of her design business.
As with the previous books in the Murders by Design series, Killer Kitchens has an eclectic but well-developed cast of characters. Lead protagonist Deva is engaging and she has come a long way from the grief-stricken widow we met in Designed for Death. She is self-confident, witty and she absolutely cannot resist poking around in the ongoing investigation. Victor Rossi is still the same gruff yet lovable detective with a heart of gold. Francesco is a little insensitive but his obvious affection for his wife and surprising knowledge of the finer things in life go a long way in smoothing out his rougher edges.
Deva tries to avoid investigating the death of Francesco's chauffeur, but she inadvertently stumbles onto clues as she continues working on Francesco's design project. An unexpected discovery in her personal life not only derails her burgeoning relationship with Victor, but also distracts Deva from the investigation. Deva uncovers incriminating information that cast doubts on a large suspect pool and once again, Ms. Harrington does an excellent job of keeping the killer's identity tightly under wraps.
Killer Kitchens is another absorbing mystery, but the story does not flow quite as well as the earlier installments in the Murders by Design series. The investigative element of the plot is sometimes a little overshadowed by Deva's personal life. These deviations provide insight into both Deva and Victor and add dimension to both their characters.
Jean Harrington has a few surprises up her sleeve for her intrepid sleuth in Killer Kitchens. Mystery lovers are sure this entertaining and intriguing addition to the fabulous Murders by Design series.
I received a complimentary copy for review.
