Trying to help her mother, Aurora ‘Roe’ Teagarden met the Bartells (Martin and his sister Barbara) to show them the Anderton house. During the process of showing them the house, the body of another local realtor (Tonia Lee Greenhouse) was discovered. Having a fascination with true crimes, Roe started her own investigation into who would have and who could have killed this woman. While the realtors dealt with the lose of one of their own, Roe and Martin, became closer.
(***3) This book is short, quick, light and fun to read. It seems to be part of a series and some of the references to previous cases were too brief (I may have to find some of the rest), leaving some things confusing and even distracting. The Romance part was very cute, but it was a side story and seemed to be more than needed, especially the Sam Ulrich bit, not needed and a bit distracting (even though it was very good), it had nothing to do with Roe figuring out who, how and why of the deaths. I will try to find others of this series, it is a good story (Librarian turned detective) but there was some choppy parts in the writing.
