(Haunted Renovation Mystery #1)

by Rose Pressey


Kindle Edition, 251 pages

Goodreads synopsis: 

Alabama Hargrove has a new, sure-fire, money-making scheme up her sleeve: house flipper. So what if she knows zilch about renovating homes--how hard can it be?


Tougher than she thought when she discovers ghosts inhabiting the run-down

mansion and the corpse of the previous owner. Oh yeah, and now the local sheriff thinks Alabama is the killer.


Holy house rehab, what's next? Reed O'Hara, the sexy know-it-all next door neighbor that's what. Alabama is hell-bent on proving she can handle the fixer-upper. Plus, unravel the mystery and find the killer. But if she's not careful, she may end up in the house forever… 



***


3.75 stars


This is the first book in the Haunted Renovation mystery series by Rose Pressey.


I thought this was pretty good. It did give me pause in the beginning since you can almost see the trainwreck about to happen when Alabama Hargrove buys that old Victorian house that is haunted by a real ghost!


Although, this does still need a lot of work in the editing department, the book did keep me entertained. I wasn’t quite sure why ‘Bama kept pushing away the cute next door neighbor and then immediately gets swindled out of $200 by a man claiming to be a fix-it guy. 


The mystery was okay and I liked the parts where she interacted with the ghostly resident. I still feel like this needs a lot of work but it did make me curious about book number two and I have already purchased it.


If you want to read a good cozy mystery, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
