Title: A Killer Location (A Home Sweet Home Mystery)
Stars: 4 out of 5
A cozy mystery set in the world of real estate sales. The reader will not have any problem following the storyline which appears deceptively simple. But be aware that there are some curves before you reach the conclusion. An easy read which can be completed in two days without difficulty.
I have given this book a four star rating.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Thank you Frank
Thanks to a few sales and a self-help book on becoming a super-agent, Sam Turner is well on her way to becoming real estate royalty in Arlinda, her eccentric hometown on the Northern California coast. And after settling into her new house with her teenage son, she’s finally a homeowner, too. Sure, things aren’t perfect—for example, her sister still doesn’t know that Sam is dating her ex, police chief Bernie Aguilar—but perfect is boring. And Sam’s life is never boring.
When Sam’s boss, Everett Sweet, assigns her an open house in Arlinda’s most exclusive neighborhood, she brushes up on her super-agent tips, hoping to wow potential buyers. But there’s nothing in the manual about stumbling upon the owner’s dead body halfway through the tour. When suspicion falls on her boss, Sam and her co-workers are suddenly out of work, their real estate licenses suspended. Now, with her job on the line and a mortgage to pay, Sam will need every trick in the book to clear Everett’s name.
Expected publication: November 22nd 2016 by Alibi
