I loved Bloch's "Best Murder of the Year"- and what he does for a switching-homes-make-over show is every bit as funny and on target as his take on the Hollywood Oscars. Though the book isn't specifically about "Trading Spaces," it's impossible not to make comparisons between the 'real' show and Bloch's hysterical version of it...and it's impossible not to see Bloch's affection and skepticism of the cable decorating show's concept.

The mystery is more defined than the first Rick Domino book - and it's fun trying to catch the clues between the laughs - which are plentiful. Several times I actually put the book down and laughed out loud.

For a light-hearted, easy read, I recommend it wholeheartedly. It works as both mystery and comic satire.

You'll never want to go on a tv decorating show again!
