The latest Domestic Bliss whodunit from Caine (Fatal Feng Shui ) offers another creative challenge for interior design and life partners Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan, as the two participate in the Best Green Home in Crestview Colorado contest. When Professor Richard Thayers, a green design expert and contest judge, drops out of the proceedings and then drops dead, Erin and Steve must find out who had it in for him. As a plethora of suspects present themselves, Erin also wonders how to put the fire back in her troubled relationship with Steve. Observations from Audrey Munroe, star of Domestic Bliss (a fictional Martha Stewart–like show) offer alternative perspectives on the doings throughout. Fans of charming interior cozies and trips to Home Depot will appreciate this tragic twist on the challenges of eco-friendly innovations. (June)
