Gwen Bishop, wife, mother, and struggling real estate agent, has two big fears: claustrophobia and being buried in suburban obscurity. When she signs her dream listing, a multi-million dollar beachfront property in Laguna Beach, California, she’s sure her problems are behind her. And they would be, if it wasn’t for the secret in the basement and the body in an upstairs bedroom.
When the crime scene tape comes down, Gwen enlists the aid of a handsome co-worker with a background in construction to help her ready the house for sale and bolster her flagging courage. But every time they’re ready to put it back on the market, something goes horribly wrong. Gwen must face old fears and new ones, temptations and buried truths, if she’s going to survive.
The wages of sin rock the glamorous world of high-end real estate — gripping and fast-paced! – Anne Cleeland, author of The Doyle & Acton Scotland Yard Series
There is something for everyone to relate to in this story. From the boy displaced by his father’s new family, to the under-performing real estate agent, to the single mother holding things together while waitressing – everyone will feel a jolt of familiarity with the players. The cadence of the dialogue keeps things real and totally engaging. I was especially taken with how deftly the author took an all-too-common marital dilemma and challenged my knee-jerk reaction.
A thoroughly enjoyable read that landed me firmly in the rapidly growing Greta Boris fan club! – Top 1,000 Amazon Reviewer
