Avery Baker never thought she'd leave Manhattan, until she inherited her aunt's old Maine cottage and found her true calling-home renovation. But when Avery goes to work restoring a condominium, she discovers it's another condo owner who's been condemned... Avery and her partner, Derek, are fixing up a cute little condo in homey Waterfield, Maine, hoping for a quick turnaround and some extra money. It seems like a simple project-and Avery is looking forward to using her big-city experience with small spaces. But they didn't expect to have their every move watched by the resident busybody in the condo, Hilda Shaw, who loves snooping on everyone's comings and goings. When the busybody becomes a dead body, Avery suspects foul play. Soon she's doing some snooping of her own-and it seems everyone in the complex has a secret. Could one of them be worth killing for? Avery needs to work fast, before someone decides to fix her...for good.
A career as a REALTOR® and professional renovator has given debut author Jennie Bentley plenty of fodder for her new series of Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation Mysteries. She has stumbled over dead bodies—those of birds, cockroaches, and the occasional rat; unearthed buried treasure—gorgeous tile floors hidden under ugly vinyl, pristine footed bathtubs covered over with drywall; and had personal experience with just how dangerous renovating a house can be—she and her husband have come close to killing each other on many occasions while renovating the eight houses the family has owned in the past eight years.
