Flipping houses can be fatal! When Katelyn finds a dead body in her first home renovation project, she seriously doubts her decision to “follow her bliss.” After getting fired from her steady job, her plan to flip houses takes a hit when she becomes a suspect. After all, possession is nine points of the law, isn’t it? Especially, when it’s a dead body.
To keep herself in pizza, peanut butter, good coffee, and her stray cat, Boots, in kitty chow she takes survival jobs as a wine sample hostess and market researcher. Meanwhile, Sheriff Don is kind of hunky, and her ex-husband, Eddy (it’s complicated) is back in her life sleeping on her sofa. How’s a girl supposed to solve dead body mysteries, make a living, and find love?

My Review

A different type of murder mystery, I know when you do a rehab on a home there is a lot of trash to get rid of, but ending up with a body to dispose of it taking it a bit far.
With the serious subject of murder the author gives quite a few chuckles as we read along, but there are several stories here and somehow, they seem to be connected. With non-stop action, I never knew what was going to happen next.
If you enjoy a page turner this one will keep your attention.

I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
