Domestic Divas Sophie Winston and Natasha Smith are trying to outdo each other with their Halloween plans. Sophie is in charge of the community haunted house while Natasha is planning a huge Halloween Bash at her home. Sophie is worried the fake haunted house is really haunted and Natasha has costumes and caters on her mind.
Sophie was not really planning to attend Natasha's party but she ends up there to try to solve a small problem. When she arrives she discovers a much bigger problem, one a Natasha's guests, part of an elaborate Halloween display in the front yard, is not just playing dead, he is actually, really, very dead and he has two puncture marks on his neck!
Is there a vampire loose in Old Town? As people stock up on garlic, Sophie is going to figure out who is responsible for all this mischief and murder!!
This entire series has been terrific, but The Diva Haunts the House is so much fun. You could say it's "SPOOKTACULAR"! I caught myself laughing out loud several times. All the kids involved in the haunted house brought back some wonderful memories from way back when.
The constant neediness of Natasha to independent Sophie is such a great contrast. How could the same man have fallen in love with both these women? The dialogue between any of the two or all three together is perfectly written whether serious or hilarious. The mystery my have you laying in a supply of garlic.
I like that this book is being released well in advance of Halloween. There are wonderful tips, recipes and ideas for your own Halloween party, without the dead body in the front yard of course.
