Overview

By the New York Times bestselling author of the Do It Yourself Home Renovation mysteries...

Third book in the Cutthroat Business mystery series featuring Realtor® and Southern Belle Savannah Martin

They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and Savannah is certainly learning the truth of that statement.

It’s been a month and a half since Rafael Collier left town, and although Savannah knows it would be hideously inappropriate—not to mention supremely stupid—to miss him, she wishes he’d come back soon. His grandmother’s ailing, the nurse he hired to take care of her has disappeared, and somebody is watching the house and following Savannah as she goes about the business of bringing her first real estate transaction to a close.

But when Rafe comes back, things only go from bad to worse. Resident nurse Marquita Johnson is found murdered, and Metro Nashville Homicide Detective Tamara Grimaldi is asked to handle the case. It doesn’t take long for her to focus her interest, once again, on Rafe.

Now Savannah has to make the choice between staying safe by accepting her old flame Todd’s proposal, or taking a chance on losing her heart and her life by trying to help Rafe, as the term ‘contract pending’ takes on a whole new meaning.

I am absolutely hooked on this series. The murder mystery is always first class. The characters have me glued to every page and I can't wait to find out what Savannah is up to next.

This is the best book in this series thus far. Savannah is finally becoming her own woman and going after what she wants and boy did the author deliver on that. This is a great read and I can't wait for the next book in this appealing and enjoyable series.

    Highly Additive

    I could not put this book down and have just started her fourth in the series,'Close to Home'. I've always been a fan of Evanovich but these characters are even better. I love the Southern 'way of doing things' Savanna has to contend with when she is in the same vicinity as Rafe. The mysteries are unique but the attraction the two have for each other is even better. Read all four of Jenna's book, in order, and you will be addicted too.
