THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
The first book in a new series and the first time I read this author. The writing flows easily and the main characters were developed. This was class under mysteries but I felt it was a novel with the mystery as the major point in the story. There were romances and I knew the killer early in the book. I will read this author again. There were happenings that I wonder about. House-flipper Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod had brought a Cal Saunders house to rehab it. It had been rented and the renter sold anything of value and destroy the house. They found a lovely chest in the attic and upon opening it the found a skeleton. The hands still had rings and Jazzi recognized them as belonging to her Aunt Lynda who went to New York City about twenty years ago and was never heard from again. A short time later a second body was found buried in a shallow grave. Ansel, a friend, and his dog had joined them to aid I the rehab of the house. Jazz decided to buy the house for her large extended family affairs. The story had a number of twists as the story unfolds. What was the reason for the murders? How did the murder play out? I highly recommend this book. Recipes are included. Disclosure: Many thanks to Lyrical Underground and NetGalley for a review copy. The opinions expressed are my own.
