Publisher's Summary

Even in a lovely town like River Bluffs, Indiana, flipping houses can be a challenge. Especially when there’s the proverbial skeleton in the closet - and a literal corpse in the driveway....

House-flipper Jazzi Zanders has her work cut out for her. Her latest flip, which she co-purchased with her fiancée Ansel and cousin Jerod, is a three-story fixer-upper that’s more of a droopy-downer. One corner of the house is sinking and needs to be jacked up with a new cement foundation. That costs money. And causes headaches. And creates a work environment that’s not only hostile, it’s downright deadly....

Jazzi knows it’s a tough job. Which is why she hired Darby to lay the cement. But when Darby gets into a fiery argument with the furnace man - and then never shows up to lay gravel for the driveway - Jazzi starts to wonder if the rumors about Darby are true. Did he kill his wife and son and bury them in the yard like some folks claim? When Darby’s dead body comes pouring out of a gravel truck, murder upstages the real estate market as her biggest concern....

The victim was nasty!

family-dynamics, friendship, Indiana, murder-investigation, small-business, small-town, law-enforcement*****

I found that I had skipped this one, so I went back to get this one as an audio because I had really liked the ones I had read! Each of the books does well as a stand alone, however. Ansel and Jazzi are house flippers who work with her cousin to get the job done but need specialized contractors for some things. Like driveways. The company they chose to deliver the underlayment of gravel is someone they've used before despite his nasty demeanor because the jobs were done right at the best price. When he doesn't show up as promised, they call for someone else in the company to deliver but then the body of the owner falls out with the gravel. Enter their friend the Homicide detective who usually asks Jazzi to come along as a buffer when questioning witnesses outside of the station. Good sleuthing!
Devon Sorvari is the narrator and really adds to the personalities of the many characters.

Loved it

I love this series. The story is well written and I love that Jazzy is thriving in an untraditional job for women. When ever I listen to a book in this series, I think about making a few house repairs. Then I remind myself that Jazzy and her crew are not going to magically appear to help me. (sigh)

reasonable light entertainment

Predictable and samey, but a happy ending. Don't read this series if you want a twisted plot, it's light crime with DIY and cookery mixed in. I wonder if there a 'JAZZIS RECIPES' book?!
