Review: Wall to Wall Dead by Jennie Bentley


Wall to Wall Dead by Jennie Bentley is the sixth book in the “Do-It-Yourself” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, September 2012

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.

This was a great read that I enjoyed immensely. This fast-paced, non-stop action whodunit kept me on my toes as I followed the moves that Avery made in unraveling a crime in her neighborhood. The author did a good job with the mystery that had me closely paying attention to the directions the clues were leading in exposing the killer. Avery is a great character and I love how she inserts herself in a case. With Derek by her side, they make an awesome crime-fighting duo. This was the best story yet in this fantastically appealing series and I can’t wait to see what’s next for our happy couple.
