A Domestic Bliss Mystery #6

About that Green-Eyed Monster

It seemed like a perfect idea to promote their new business: Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan would hold a competition to award the builder and designer of the most earth-friendly home in Crestview, Colorado.

But since when did saving the planet lead instead to extinction?!?

Environmental guru, Richard Thayers was Sullivan�s architectural mentor and the judge of the contest. But now he is dead�poisoned by some supposedly nontoxic gold paint�and Sullivan is convinced that Richard�s death is no accident. Erin, normally the suspicious half of the duo, is not so sure.

The one thing they both agree on? This mysterious death is murder on their budding romance�

When another figure in the contest is killed, and Sullivan becomes distracted by an oversexed divorcee, Erin designs her own plan: not only to find the killer, but to uncover the true Steve Sullivan�and the schemes he�s hiding in his heart�

First they were rivals in the interior design profession, but Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan ended up becoming business partners. If not for a phone call the night before, both of them would have ended up in the same bed. Instead Steve¿s mentor Richard Thayers, who was supposed to judge an environmentally friendly home contest in Crestview, Colorado sponsored by Earth House, is livid that they designed the house of his archenemy Burke Stratton. He calms down enough to host a class where he demonstrates environmentally safe products by drinking gold paint.---------------- Following the session Richard gets into his car while Steve and Erin go to their respective homes. The next day the partners learn Richard is dead, a victim of poisoning someone tampered with the paint. Erin cannot stop herself from snooping and soon receives business cards warning her to back off or else. Still, an obstinate Erin keeps investigating with plenty of suspects from the contestants, the class, the architect, and even others. However, the killer is watching her every move waiting for the moment to end this inquiry.-------------- Readers will thoroughly enjoy this entertaining amateur sleuth tale as Gilbert and Sullivan¿s romantic aria crashes although Eric does not know why. The support cast, especially Erin¿s landlady, adds humor to the plot. Erin is loyal to her friends and clients so feels strongly she must take action even when she knows that might place her in danger from a culprit who killed once. Amateur sleuth logic aside, POISONED BY GILT is filled with charming characters, a courageous heroine and a pitiful villain, who come together to make an engaging whodunit.---------------- Harriet Klausner

I love the story and Ms. Caine's writing; but who edited it? There seem to be quite a few errors with words left out and maybe added in or mixed up. I have the entire series and enjoy the stories; but I wish that more attention was paid to the editing.
