The Body in the Attic - Judi Lynn

Jazzi Zanders and her cousin, Jerod, are house-flippers. They're now working on a house that was owned by the late Cal Juniper, a man who used to date Jazzi's aunt Lynda. Lynda moved to New York after breaking up with Cal and didn't bother to keep in touch with her family. Now they know why. Lynda's bones have been found in Cal's attic.

Look, there's a pug on the cover :-) This is a book about food with some house-flipping and murder on the side. I love watching shows about flipping and fixing and all that, so this was interesting and refreshing. Family and friends were close and would get together every Sunday to, you guessed it, eat. George, the pug, would drink beer and eat lots of people food which I did not like. The mystery itself was fine. Things happened extremely fast between Jazzi and the contractor. I get that it's just a book and things have to flow for the sake of the story but some of these things just really irritated me and took away from my enjoyment of the book overall.

Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington Books for an e-copy.
