    1. I really enjoy the Domestic Bliss series even if there is anything but domestic bliss going on. This time has Sullivan and Gilbert Design helping with the decorating of a house that is up for the top prize for the "greenest" house in Crestview. There is a lot of craziness involved with this contest and a couple of murders too. Erin and Steve's relationship is still in it's eternal turmoil. I'm looking forward to the next book.

    2. I've read (or tried to read) six in this series. I should have liked them a lot. After all, I like cozies, more or less. I like interior design and architecture. I like women heroines. So what's not to like? Well, the two main characters, for one. I don't feel the "spark" between them that everybody seems to see, including them. I don't like the snide tone that seems to be constant. I don't like the plots (you can see the author saying, what would make this more convoluted?). I don't like charac [...]

    3. This is the first book I've read in this series and it is okay. I would not say it is poorly written, but I did not fall in love with the main characters. It is almost too realistic at times with Erin's inner thoughts. But, she's much more girly than I am so I did not really connect with her. I don't know that I want to go back and read this series from the beginning. I fear that it's a Stephanie Plum-like scenario where Gilbert and Sullivan are "made for each other" but that their romance has t [...]

    4. The sixth mystery in the Domestic Bliss series, Poisoned by Gilt is another fun, well-crafted summer read by Leslie Caine, a certified interior decorator, as well as author. Once again she serves up a suspenseful mystery with a topping of romance and a side of interior decorating tips. Her writing is well-crafted and moves the story along, denying the answer to "who done it" right up to the end. These stories revolve around the business and personal relationships of Steve Sullivan and Erin Gilbe [...]

    5. Non-Steve Sullivan part of the story 4 stars. Steve Sullivan's attitude 1 star.Though I enjoy this series, I didn't particularly care for this book. It wasn't the mystery, which I found interesting and involving. Erin and Audrey's interactions are always fun. It had more to do with the personal part of the story, how Steve Sullivan treated his partner, and maybe girlfriend, Erin Gilbert.In this entry, Steve's mentor is killed. As she investigates the murder, Steve basically blames Erin for the d [...]

    6. Interesting that this was about a decorator and a contest about Green building. I just heard a story on NPR about Zero Waste. Interesting concept but definitely not easy to do today. But worth trying.Enjoyed the story!

    7. First time reading Leslie Caine. Really enjoyed this book. Great storyline, characters and the book just flowed. Enjoyable. Recommend.
