Review: Deader Homes & Gardens
DEADER HOMES & GARDENS
Author: JOAN HESS
Hardcover Myseries Series
After their honeymoon Claire and Peter are back home sharing a two bedroom apartment with their daughter Caron and most of the time Carons BFF is there which means Clair needs a new home and she would like to move while she is still sane. The problem is there is nothing in Farberville, Arkansas for rent or to buy.
The real estate agent Angela Delmond makes one last effort to find Claire and Peter the house of their dreams as she shows Clairie a home that is not yet on the market. Claire falls in love with the house and all would be well if Angela hadn't disappeared while showing Claire the house.
No Angela and it turns out the owner of the house lives in Florida. The other problem is he doesn't know if he can sell Claire the house. There are legal issues. However he might be able to lease her the house until it's for Claire to buy.
This would all be happily house after if Terry the owner hadn't been poisioned and soon after died.
More teen angst and drama are on the scene and this time it's not Caron or Inez but a relative of the people who are holding up the purchase of Claire's dreamhouse.
More people die and pretty soon Claire realizes if she hopes to move into the dream house she better figure out who is murdering the family and for what reason they are being murdered.
