Editorial Reviews

Amazon - F J Kemp
I took this book on vacation and kept annoying my husband because I was reading it wherever we went :) It kept me guessing and I couldn't put it down - the characters were very real and very loveable, and I want to spend more time with them!
Messiah Mom - Kristin H
“Mitzy is active and energetic in her second stab at solving a mystery, a product of her keen business sense and practical outlook. The book secretes an air of excitement as the reader follows Mitzy and her crew through the murky waters of real estate. Well-researched, carefully-written and dynamic to read, Mitzy will sell you on suspense.”

    A New Genre Has Been Created! (and with it a fun read)

    Traci Tyne Hilton has done something unusual and quite interesting with her novel Eminent Domain: she's combined real estate with mystery. I don't know if this genre exists, (real-estate mystery) but if not, Ms. Tyne Hilton has created it. As a person who is interested in historic homes, renovation and city planning, I was particularly drawn in. But when the novel exploded into an action packed thriller, I was even further rewarded. The author really knows how to draw a character and paint a description. She writes with ease and humor and throws just a little bit of Christian ethic into the romance aspect of the book, staying away from the urge to go sexy. The romance is sweet never-the-less, and adds plenty of extra interest. Finally, as the story takes place in Portland, Oregon, I enjoyed it even more so, because, though I'm not from Portland, I love the city, and enjoyed traveling the streets and visiting the neighborhoods and local spots by proxy. Well done!

    The addictively entertaining Emiment Domain picks up where the f

    The addictively entertaining Emiment Domain picks up where the first Mitzy Neuhaus novel left us - in the property where Mitzy and Alonso found the jewels. Hilton skilfully interweaves different plot strands involving property conversion, the FBI and a romance among other things.

    The fact that she ensures each one of these storylines remains compelling is a sign that she is an extremely talented author. The narrative voice is even funnier and authoritative then it was in the first book and thus results in one of those off rarities - a sequel that surpasses the original book.

    The addition of Alonso's sister Carmella, heightens dramatic tension between the protagonists and enriches the overall story. Furthermore, the harsh reality of trying to sell a property in our current economic circumstances adds an astute layer of realism to Mitzy's world.

    I was surprised at how moved I was by aspects of the ending. But it is a testament to this addictive and enjoyable book that I found myself yearning for the next Mitzy instalment.

    More Than a Mystery

    Eminent Domain-A Mitzy Neuhaus Mystery possess all of the qualities of a great mystery with a lot of extra thrown in. I enjoyed peeking into a sweet romance, gaining insight on housing market,while feeding my interest on renovations. Mitzy, the main character is such an entertaining (and curious)soul I found myself cheering her own while worrying about the next bit of adventure she would fall into. I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge I gained about the realestate business through a mystery. Never a dull page. Traci Hilton did an awesome job. I recommend this book.

    Great, clean, fun mystery

    This is the second book I've read from Traci Tyne Hilton. I can see more polish and prose in the writing compared to the first one - it's great to see a writer develop in front of my eyes, so to speak.

    This book is about a Real Estate Agent (Mitzy Neuhaus) that finds herself embroiled in a fight between the city, the FBI, and her new investment property. Sprinkle a little romance, and a little good moral values, and you have a great, family friendly read.

    This is definitely worth picking up and reading. I'm already looking forward to the next one!
