A KILLER LOCATION By Sarah T. Hobart
SynopsisAs this captivating cozy mystery series featuring real estate agent Sam Turner continues, a dream home turns into a crime scene when murder intrudes on an open house.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.
Sam's job is on the line, as if money is not tight enough, when at her very first upscale open house, EVERYTHING goes as wrong as possible. From fleas and mud to stolen goods and a finger in the freezer. Not to mention the neighbors!!
Life at home is not relaxing either when her own neighbors are acting odd and having troubles of their own. Will danger follow Sam home too?
I enjoyed how adventurous Sam and her friends are. One part of the investigation seemed a little too over the top, but that is probably my own fear inserting itself. Surprising me since I have experience in mortuaries.
Sam seems much more sure of herself and determined now. I am glad to see growth in the protagonist. The wild and crazy people she has to deal with make this a very enjoyable read, as well as not knowing who the murderer is or exactly why.
