Interior decorator, Erin Gilbert heads to picturesque Crestview, Colorado for a friendly (if sharks are friendly) competition: She’ll design a room in one home; and the impossibly handsome Steve Sullivan—her main rival—will do a room in another. The prize? A big feature in Denver Magazine, showcasing their interior design business.
Who could have dreamed the uproar to ensue in a neighborhood full of eccentric homeowners, jealously hidden secrets and a few marriages in need of total makeovers. Trapped together in the midst of chaos, could the charming Steve turn out to be a…friend?
But between her custom, cushy pillows and dramatic drapery, Erin uncovers a very undecorative dead body, too many suspects, and a killer who seems to have designs…on her!

An excellent read. Light, but well-crafted. Fun, well-developed characters and a plot that kept me guessing, but was still believable. Only reason I didn't give it five stars was because of all the typos.
Death by inferior design
I enjoyed the book but felt there were too many descriptions of Erin’s job. It seemed to go on and on so that I just started skipping parts. It would have been better if it were condensed into a shorter book.
One of the best
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the interior design information, the characters were well described and the plot left me guessing to the end. Will definitely read more by this author!
