Welcome to River Bluffs, Indiana, a cozy small town populated with charming homes, close-knit families, and the occasional deadly secret . . .
House-flipper Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod have found their latest project. The property, formerly owned by the late Cal Juniper, is filled with debris that must be cleared before the real renovation begins. But a trip to the attic reveals something more disturbing than forgotten garbage—a skeleton wearing a locket and rings that Jazzi recognizes . . .
Tests confirm that the bones belong to Jazzi’s aunt Lynda, who everyone assumed moved to New York years ago after breaking up with Cal. Soon enough, the whole family is involved, sifting through memories and rumors as they try to piece together what really happened to Lynda—and the baby she gave up for adoption. In between investigating and remodeling, Jazzi is falling for the old house’s charms—and for her gorgeous contractor, Ansel. But with surprises lurking in every nook and cranny, a killer might be waiting to demolish her dreams for good . . .

What I Thought:

This is the first book by Judi Lynn that I have read and I will have to say, it was pretty interesting.  Jazzi and her cousin are house flippers and their latest project turns up a skeleton that has very close ties to Jazzi. I enjoyed the dynamics of this story, both family and friend.  It was well written and the plot was believable.  I like how the story unfolded and the main character was great.  I enjoyed the setting of this story, that of a small, close-knit town.  Though there is deception lurking in the town, it still seemed like a good place to settle down.  I thought this was a great mystery as it kept me guessing till the very end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
