Can't resist light-hearted comedy dressed with a little mystery that never takes you down a dark road?
Good, because that’s what you get when you put two hot Italian imports together. Meet the hot pink Fiat 500 and its owner, real estate agent Monica Baker.
Now stir in a dead body, a caterer about to lose her license, a real estate office coming off the rails, a goofy Great Dane, and a lively heroine who can’t help falling for the brooding bad boy. This is the world of Monica Baker: a high-speed mystery with a serving of mischief and a side of laughs.

A light-hearted mystery that kept me turning page after page to see what the main character, Monica Baker would have happened next. From Monica's effort to become a licensed real estate agent to helping out her ex's aunt, Brenda with her catering business, Monica is one busy lady. The competition with her mentor, boss, Celine's daughter Sunny, is another angle that will leave you waiting to see who comes out on top. This is definitely one book that will keep you turning the pages until the end.
[I voluntarily offered to review this book] Monica Baker, divorcée, lives in the gatehouse behind her ex's Aunt Brenda's house. Brenda is a nutritionist at a high end elder residence while also heading B+B Catering. Her companion is Dior, a blue Great Dane. Monica is a realtor-in-training at Brenda's friend Sunny's office while working on her license. The cast of characters in that office would make your head spin, and the clients read like the local scandal sheet. And Sunny's daughter Celine is no help when a client becomes a bit more "chummy" than anyone expects. Throw in the poolboy, the cops, and a PI that happens to become the corpse in question, combine all the ingredients for a juicy murder and a delightful new series by Maria Grazia Swan. I love Ms Swan's previous writing but these characters are different than anything before. Highly recommended .
