There is no stain on Earth that laundromat owner Josie Toadfern can't conquer, and she's offered to share her expertise on world famous domestic doyenne Tyra Grimes's TV show. No one is more shocked than Josie herself when the Great Grimes shows up in Paradise, Ohio, to tape a segment in Josie's teeny-weeny hometown. But rapidly spreading rumors of the insufferable icon's immoral—and quite possibly illegal—carryings-on have sparked Josie's curiosity, and her uninvited sorting through Grimes's dirty laundry is exposing all manner of dastardly doings—from mischief all the way to murder. And the irrepressible Toadfern soon realizes it will take more than lemon juice to make this lethal stain come out in the wash.

I ordered four different books in the Domestic Diva murder mysteries paperback books. I have been reading many murder mystery series written by women. Generally, I like the mysteries as the main character, a woman, is enpowered in the course of the novel or the series. Reading such material allows me to feel positive about women's thinking on serious subjects. However, the domestic diva series was not as expected. The writing was uninteresting. I'm sorry, as an avid reader, the books in the series did not hold any interest to me. I was hoping for a new murder mysteries series about women who used their intellect to solve mysteries. This writing was truly fluff.

A good bedtime read.

In the 1st book in the Toadfern Mystery series, we meet the owner of the Toadfern's Laundromat, Josie Toadfern. She loves her small town of Paradise, Ohio and lives a quiet life with her friends and family. This all starts to go downhill the day that Elroy Magruder, owner of the only gas station in town, comes bursting into her Laundromat telling Josie that Paradise has been removed from the official map of the United States. Fearing that her already tiny town would decline considerably, Josie decides to invite a TV star to Paradise to do a live broadcast. Promising to share her immense knowledge of stain removal techniques, Josie invites Tyra Grimes to tape her domestic-style talk show at the Laundromat. No one is town believes that Josie will connect with their famous idol, but when Tyra rolls into town, everyone quickly becomes a believer. Strange things start to occur that turns the small town upside down, and everyone quickly decides that having Tyra around will not be good for Paradise. And when two bodies are discovered, reporters start snooping around, and Tyra's assistant goes on the lam with Cousin Billy, Josie steps in to save both her business and the people that she loves.

I had heard a lot about this cozy series and had waited awhile before picking up this first installment. The premise was interesting, and I am a big fan of small town cozies. While I enjoyed the town and the characters, I agree with several other reviewers in the fact that the book seemed to drag at parts. It took me much longer to read this book than many others in the genre, and I found myself wondering why certain information was included in the book. However, it ended up being a more complicated mystery than I had anticipated, and I was charmed by the small town setting and lively characters. I will pick up the next book in the series, and hope to see more quirky fun in this potentially great series.

The next book in the series is called "Death by Deep Dish Pie". Enjoy!

Josie Toadfern owns the town Laundromat. She is also a stain expert. Their town, Paradise, Ohio, has always been on the map. But, when the new map arrives, it is no longer there. To try to get them back on the map, Josie writes a letter to Tyra Grimes asking to be on her TV show. Josie is quite surprised when Tyra shows up in town to tape a segment without even answering her letter.

Then Josie starts hearing rumors about Tyra that sound immoral if not illegal. She begins to do some research. Her cousin Billy appears to be getting in deep with Tyra's associates. As Josie tries to uncover the truth, the funeral director is town is murdered. Elroy is arrested. Josie can't believe the Elroy killed him. She keeps digging trying to find the truth.

She ends up getting herself in deeper and deeper but can't seem to figure out how all the pieces fit together.

This was the first book I've read in this series. It is an easy read, and I will continue to read others in this series. I must say that they won't be books that I'd rush out to get. I enjoyed this book, but found myself having trouble getting through it quickly. I can't put my finger on why. Josie is a likeable character. The other townspeople are all good characters. I think the writing is good. It is definitely a cozy mystery. I just felt that at times I got bogged down in some of the superfluous information.

I recommend this book.
