The Body in the Attic ePUB ↠ Body in the Epub

Welcome to River Bluffs Indiana a cozy small town populated with charming homes close knit families and the occasional deadly secret   House flipper Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod have found their latest project The property formerly owned by the late Cal Juniper is filled with debris that must be cleared before the real renovation begins But a trip to the attic reveals something disturbing than forgotten garbage—a skeleton wearing a locket and rings that Jazzi recognizes   Tests confirm that the bones belong to Jazzi’s aunt Lynda who everyone assumed moved to New York years ago after breaking up with Cal Soon enough the whole family is involved sifting through memories and rumors as they try to piece together what really happened to Lynda—and the baby she gave up for adoption In between investigating and remodeling Jazzi is falling for the old house’s charms—and for her gorgeous contractor Ansel But with surprises lurking in every nook and cranny a killer might be waiting to demolish her dreams for good

    The Body in the Attic  by Judi Lynn is the first book in the all new cozy The Body mystery series Most that follow my reviews know I have a soft spot for small town stories and cozy mysteries so being from Indiana myself this series immediately caught my eye being set in a small town in my home state The Body in the Attic introduces readers to Jazzi Zanders who along with her cousin Jerod are in the flipping houses business Now if anyone isn't familiar with house flipping it's buying up properties at a low cost then renovating them to sell for profit I blame plenty of doctorhospital trips for my new found love of HGTV and these type of shows since they seem to air in waiting rooms everywhere So anyway back to the book Jazzi and Jerod obtain the home of a man that was once engaged to Jazzi's aunt who had left town years before and never contacted her family The homeowner had never married again and spent his life alone before passing from a heart attack When Jazzi and Jerod tackle cleaning the attic they come across an old trunk that when opened contain the bones of Jazzi's aunt Now with this almost thirty year old cold case hitting close to home it was easy to see why our protagonist would become involved in the outcome but don't worry the investigation takes a step up too when a current murder is discovered making the whole mystery side of this book easy to become engaged in However as much as I liked the setting mystery and even the characters this one had a down side in my opinion the romance I have no idea why in the world the author had to write the love interest for Jazzi as having a girlfriend but I'm not a fan of pushing in on someone else's man The side we get is how terrible said girlfriend is and that she doesn't deserve the guy but this only made me feel sorry for the unknown girlfriend So before I go into a long rant about respect and boundaries I'll just say if that hadn't been included I probably would have rated a lot higher than 35 stars I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit
