#STAGING IS MURDER by Grace Topping


The first book in a new book on a house decorating theme and a new author for me. It was slow getting starting as the background for the series was set but I found I didn’t want to set it down. It is written a single person view. I felt the characters needed additional development. The writing flows easy and descriptions place you right there. There are usually events I felt were creative one that caught my attention one is that the victim sent down the laundry chute to the protagonist. 

Laura Bishop has opened a shop for staging houses for sale. Her first case is staging a Victorian mansion for a forced sale. It needs major revisions and she must work around Victoria Denton, one of the owners of the mansion who is extremely a difficult person with which to work. One a day working in the basement the Victoria arrives there via the laundry chute. She is dead and has been MURDER. The police focus on Laura assistant because the Victoria fired him that day. Laura decides to explore the case in order to CLEAR his name. I highly recommend this book.
