High summer in River Bluffs, Indiana, is always sweltering and sweet. But the heat is really on when a decidedly dead body turns up in the neighborhood.When established house flippers Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod donate a week’s worth of remodeling work to Jazzi’s sister Olivia, they’re expecting nothing more than back-breaking roofing work and cold beers at the end of each long, hot day. With Jazzi’s live-in boyfriend and partner Ansel on the team, it promises to be a quick break before starting their next big project—until Leo, an elderly neighbor of Olivia’s, unexpectedly goes missing . . .When the friendly senior’s dog tugs Jazzi and the guys toward the wetlands beyond Olivia’s neighborhood, they stumble across a decomposing corpse—and a lot of questions. With Jazzi’s pal Detective Gaff along to investigate, Jazzi finds her hands full of a whole new mystery instead of the usual hammer and nails. And this time it will take some sophisticated sleuthing to track down the culprit of the deadly crime—before the killer turns on her next . . .
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This series just gets better and better. I just love Jazzi! She cooks because she loves to, cleans, hosts family dinners, and still kicks butt remodeling with the guys. Her hunky boyfriend Ansel is sweet as well. This time they are working on her sisters new house. During some impressive manual labor she meets a sweet older man and his lab. He tells the story of a missing boy and more before he himself disappears. His loyal lab leads her to two dead bodies while his owner remains missing. What follows is a fascinating investigation filled with a wide range of characters to both love and hate as well as critters we can all just love. Ansel's family adds a nice twist as well. Awe moment finale that wraps it all up well with a nice surprise. Beautifully written making you fall in love so I give it 5/5 stars.
