Book 11 in the Domestic Diva Mysteries by Krista Davis, The Diva Cooks up a Storm finds Sophie Winston attending an exclusive foodie get together, and one guest, Hollis Haberman brings his new girlfriend even though his ex-wife and son are also attending. This is not only a tacky move on his part, but he ends up murdered, and Sophie, as usual, decides to investigate on her own.

In addition to some new secondary characters such as the murder victim, the usual characters are included – Sophie Winston, the protagonist, Mars, her ex-husband, Natasha, her rival in everything domestic, and her best friend, Nina Reid Norwood, as well as neighbors and other friends. The books in this series are fun, and The Diva Cooks up a Storm is no exception. There is domestic advice from both Sophie’s and Natasha’s advice columns, as well as recipes. Since the books in this series are cozies, there is no graphic violence, sex, or foul language, and they are easy, fast reads. The conflicts between the likeable and relatable down-to-earth Sophie and the arrogant, difficult, selfish and unlikeable Natasha as both interact with Mars, Sophie’s ex-husband and of course, the readers of their columns make for interesting reading, and some difficulty in solving the murder without getting into too much trouble.

This novel is well-written, and most readers who enjoy the series will definitely be excited, as always, about the next installment to come. The Domestic Diva series is unique, the characters are fun, and the scenarios are fairly innovative. Incidentally, the Chocolate Truffle Tart with Strawberries is divine.
