A Cutthroat Business by Bente Gallagher

A Brand New Series 
Release Date June 1, 2010

Savannah Martin has a brand new real estate license and has signed on to work for The Walker Lamont Real Estate Agency, where so far she has sold absolutely nothing. She had been warned that Real Estate was "A Cutthroat Business" but when she stepped in the help a colleague she found out it was the truth quite literally.  Brenda Puckett hadn't forgotten her appointment, she was there, but she was very dead, and her throat was most definitely cut!!  

The client Brenda was meeting sure looked like he could be a killer, but after really looking at him Savannah realized she knew him, he was in high school a few years ahead of her, but she had heard he was in prison, the plot thickens.

This is a must read for your Summer Reading List.  
The plot of this book really runs deep with a few surprises and just when you think you may have it figured out, you're wrong.  Twists and turns doesn't describe this wild ride.   The characters are wonderfully developed, Savannah's mother is priceless. The humorous dialogue is pure delight!!  I have given this book a "Complete Appraisal" and deem it ready for "MLS Listing" and  "Quick Sales", without an "addendum".

This is sure to be a fantastic new cozy series.  I have heard the next book is entitled "HOT PROPERTY" and will be out early next year.
