Book 3 in the Cutthroat Business mystery series, featuring Southern Belle and Realtor Savannah Martin in Nashville, Tennessee.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, they say, and Realtor Savannah Martin is certainly learning the truth of that statement. It's been a month and a half since Rafael Collier left town, after the robbery ring he was part of got broken up by the police, 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. As Savannah finally learns the truth about him, she finds herself in the path of a killer more ruthless than any she has encountered yet, a killer who won't be swayed from his purpose and who isn't too particular whom he has to go through to get to Rafe.
Now Savannah has to make the choice between staying safe by accepting Todd Satterfield'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 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.
Contract Pending is another fantastic read by Jenna Bennett. It is the third book in the Savannah Martin Mystery Series. They just keep getting better and better. Savannah and Rafe? Savannah and Todd? Oh the surprises you will find in this mystery. If you like romance and mystery this is a series I highly recommend.
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.
