    1. Sullivan and Gilbert Designs has been hired to decorate a BB opening up in Snow Cap, Colo The town has been riddled with controversy with a local developer systematically turning town s idyllic landscape into rows of high priced condos for wealthy tourists and skiers The Goodwin Estate, previously owned by the town s mayor, Henry Goodwin, is in danger of being razed in favor of profitable condos To keep this from happening, he sells the estate to three investors, with the caveat that it remains [...]

    2. This is one of my favorites of the series The mystery was good and the secondary and personal stories were also good They held my interest throughout the book I loved hearing about decorating and baking for Christmas Thoroughly enjoyable.Henry Goodwin recently sold his family s estate to mogul Wendell Barton and his partners, current it girl Chiffon Walters, and Audrey The estate is being renovated into a bed and breakfast, which is slated to open over the Christmas holidays, and Gilber Erin and [...]

    3. This book apparently is part of a series a series I had not read In retrospect, jumping into the middle of a series is always a risk in this case, characters are unknown to the new reader without a lot of introduction Secondly, the author has chapters interspersed throughout the book titled Domestic Bliss which apparently are supposed to be decorating tips I felt it distracted from the main story You re reading and all of a sudden you start a new chapter, in totally new type face, called Domesti [...]

    4. This was the first time I ever read one of Leslie s books and it s going to be the last The book was set around Christmas time so it had some wonderful holiday decorating ideas, but that s the only thing I liked about the book The plot of the book was very slow, boring and the characters very stiff and their conversation flow even stiffer I kept putting the book down to read other books until I finally gave up and skipped the last 1 4 of the book to get to the end The end didn t come soon enough [...]

    5. Designers and romantic partners Steve Sullivan and Erin Gilbert are turning an historic mansion into a bed and breakfast But the residents of Snowcap hate the developer who owns 40% of the project for bringing tourists into their small, charming town It seems like some of them would do anything to stop the project, and that s before a body is discovered Unfortunately, the sheriff is not the smartest guy around, and is possibly in the pay of the developer He s stupid enough to suspect Erin of the [...]

    6. The decorators Sullivan and Gilbert Steve and Erin are partners who have taken the job of designing the interiors for a lovely old home that is being turned into a bed and breakfast in a sleepy Colorado ski town The soon find themselves in the middle of a firestorm caused by problems with the building inspector and the arrival of Erin s ex boyfriend Then things take a turn for the worse when the inspector is found murdered in the snow and Erin finds both herself and Steve as suspects.

    7. One of the tricks to writing a good cozy is making the characters likable Unfortunately, I found Erin, the main character, a bit too fussy Plus, there was a lot romance in the mix than I like in a good mystery I probably won t be reading the rest of the series.

    8. fun read enjoy the crafting decorator tips A book doesn t have to be believable to be enjoyed or entertaining.Is it believable that Nancy Drew would get involved with so o o many mysteries The list could go on.

    9. Not really my kind of mystery, but I read it for a book group It was much better than I expected, but not very believable.

    10. I started with this one bought at a garage sale and it was charming enough for me to seek out the series.
