I picked this book up on a whim to give me an easy read while sitting by the fire outside. The book was well written and was easy to follow. The characters seemed to be 'real' and were easy to get to know and love. As someone who recently purchased a foreclosure and saw many, many destroyed homes I often felt like investigating exactly would make someone do the things they did when they were forced...
Rachel Fenn
Foreclosed "is a fun and drama filled tale of a bubbly young real estate agent, Mitzy, who gets caught up in a web of theft, lies, and missing Romanov jewels when trying to save an old mansion from being sold to her arch rival. I thought it was fantastic, and the plot is so inventive!"
T Buchmann
This is a great book. I loved all the references to Portland. Felt like I was driving around the town. The mystery kept me guessing and I loved the characters. It was a fun read and I had a hard time putting it down at night.

I enjoyed reading this fun and entertaining book. I thought the story was great, with a good plot, and the author did a great job bringing the characters to life and making me really be able to picture them (something that's important to me as I read books). I loved the author's writing style. I felt like I could hear the author's personality and voice coming through the pages as I was reading it.

I'm not fond of fiction that professes a certain religious viewpoint without warning, and espouses a biased political viewpoint. When the mystery story becomes a venue for soapboxing, a lot gets lost in the real storytelling. Thread were dropped, portions of the story were never completed. It is only 100 pages or so long and was pretty much a waste of time. This should be marked Christian fiction, and very conservative politically. If I could return it, I would.

I couldn't get past the long winded real estate lectures that were considered dialogue. I made it 29 pages and couldn't take another minute of this one.

Foreclosed is a thoroughly entertaining and superbly plotted debut novel from Traci Hilton. The book approaches the genre of mystery from an unusual but extremely engaging setting: the world of real estate. And alongside the book's delightful protagonist Mitzy Neuhaus, the reader loses himself in the grandeur and enigmatic qualities of the stunning mansion that the author so authoritatively conveys. The chemistry between Alonzo and Mitzy is apparent from their first encounter and adds a layer of tantalising romance to the book; their chemistry is electric and their battle of wills really brings the book's main plot to life. But it is Mitzy who deserves the greatest plaudits. She is an emotionally engaging character with an incredible amount of depth; resourceful, polite, entrepreneurial and caring, she is the book's main attraction and could quite easily sustain a lengthy series of mysteries that the book's many readers would enjoy. Finally, the author's writing must receive its deserved praise. Often with light reads such as Foreclosed, the writing can be suspect. But Traci Hilton displays effortless control and command of language. A highly recommended read.

I started reading this 500+ page book expecting, as my hubby says, "kill, murder, death", alas nothing. After being half way thru we were still discussing a variety of characters. Having been in real estate related business ourselves, that was the only thing that sort of kept me reading. Finally I caved, quit reading and DELETED. Just not my cup of tea.

I picked this book up on a whim to give me an easy read while sitting by the fire outside. The book was well written and was easy to follow. The characters seemed to be 'real' and were easy to get to know and love. As someone who recently purchased a foreclosure and saw many, many destroyed homes I often felt like investigating exactly would make someone do the things they did when they were forced out. It was fun to see how the different elements were all tied together in the end. I look forward to more from this author!

Very good read. It was a little slow at first but it picked up its pace later on. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys mystery and suspense. A medium read about 300+ pages.

The actual story was ok but not well developed or thought out. The real problem with the book with the editing.....HORRIBLE. I will not bother with the rest of the series.

This could have been a great read but it was sad, sad, sad. I didn't like the main character, the plot was weak and the dialog was pitiful. I kept reading, hoping it would get better but it didn't. I've not read Traci Hilton before and it's not likely I ever will again.

I really enjoyed Foreclosed. I highly recommend it.

I got to page 50 and quit. Why? Because the main character is an obnoxious, self-righteous opportunist who doesn't seem to have any redeeming characteristics at all. The rest of the characters were one-dimensional. The plot, such as it was, was not at all interesting. Right after this review I am deleting the book from my Nook.
