Synopsis from Goodreads: Jazzi married her gorgeous contractor Ansel—not his family. But somehow she keeps living with them. So she's delighted to help Ansel's brother Radley move out of their home and into his own place, in the same building as his work supervisor, Donovan. But when Donovan is shot and his apartment ransacked following an argument with Ansel and Radley's older brother Bain, their sibling becomes a suspect—especially after his missing gun turns up as the murder weapon. Told not to leave town by Detective Gaff, big brother moves in with . . . Jazzi and Ansel. Now Jazzi needs to prove Bain's no killer, not only to keep him out of jail—but to get him out of their house. What was the killer looking for in Donovan's apartment? And what will happen to the next person who gets in the way?

My Review: Another solid book in this cozy mystery series. Although I haven't always loved all of the characters in this series, including the main ones, I've found that there has been a lot of development throughout the series and in each book that has made them grow on me. This book had a great mystery and overall I really enjoyed reading it. I enjoy the aspect of the main characters being house flippers, which serves well to get them involved in a variety of mysteries. What bothers me, and has for each book, is the level of involvement that gets with the detective. It doesn't seem to fit that he would just bring her to interviews and such.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
