Synopsis

Fixing up homes can be tricky. Finding true love can be even trickier. But finding a killer can be plain old deadly . . .
Twin sister divorcees Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn have had their fill of both heartaches and headaches. So when they settle down in the small Louisiana town of Sugar Ledge and open a remodeling and repair company, they think they’ve finally found some peace—even though Eve is still open for romance while Sunny considers her own heart out-of-business.
Then their newest customer ends up face-down in a pond, and his widow is found dead soon after. Unfortunately, Sunny was witnessed having an unpleasant moment with the distraught woman, and suspicion falls on the twins. And when an attempt is made on Eve’s life, they find themselves pulled into a murder mystery neither knows how to navigate.
With a town of prying eyes on them, and an unknown culprit out to stop them, Sunny and Eve will have to depend on each other like never before if they’re going to clip a killer in the bud.


Twins often seem to have some sort of telepathy or empathy that other siblings or best friends lack. Eve and Sunny demonstrate that but something is messing with Sunny's powers. They are a little bit off. It could be the stress if trying to establish a nontraditional construction and renovation company, perhaps it is the loss of her favorite silk jacket to the police. Or is it the security guy, Dave, who is setting off alarms in her body? 
Sometimes we we fail to notice what is hidden right in front of us.

While this is the first in the series, it reads as if there is back story we should know.
It has the requisite case of quirky characters. I had fun with the gossipy seniors who never leave the Home but always seem to know the latest happenings and who is doing what to or with whom.
The sisters each have their own personalities and appeal. 
Of course when they stumble onto a murder, or rather it trips them up, and being twins causes confusion for a killer, they can't stop themselves fro investigating. This has all the elements you look for in a cozy crime. I look forward to seeing how the series moves forward.
