About the Author
By day, a mild-mannered salesperson, wife, mother, rescuer of senior shelter dogs, happily living just north of New York City. By night, an author of sex, suspense and satire.
My background includes stints in corporate communications, marketing, travel journalism, meeting planning, public relations and real estate. I was, for a long and happy time, an award-winning magazine writer and editor. Then kids happened. And I needed to actually make money. Now they're off doing whatever it is they do (of which I have no idea since they won't friend me on Facebook) and I can spend my spare time weaving tales of debauchery and whatever else tickles my fancy.
The main thing to remember about my work is that I am NOT one of my characters. For example, as a real estate broker, I've never played Bondage Bingo in one of my empty listings or offed one of my problem clients.
But that's not to say I haven't wanted to... --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Dana Black is a successful realtor in Rock Canyon – albeit not in the same lofty stratosphere of success as her older sister, Melanie, also a realtor. Suffering from the effects of longstanding neglect by her now invalid mother, Cassandra, who has been felled by a stroke, Dana nevertheless dutifully visits her for more heaping helpings of her vitriolic abuse. Those visits are thankfully made more bearable by Lorelei Simpson, her mother’s caretaker, who has the patience and kindness of Mother Theresa, trapped in the body of a polyester-wearing Spongebob Squarepants. Adding to Dana’s very dysfunctional home front is debilitating reflux and increasing blackouts that finally send her to seek the help of a therapist. It’s about this time that local realtors are beginning to turn up dead and ever so slowly, Dana evolves as the prime suspect in these homicides. She has the alibis that could clear her name but to give an alibi would mean having to reveal her dirty little secret; that Dana uses her empty listings as rendezvous locations for her salacious BDSM games with her Dominant, Dare.
With an effective first liner like, “Bile makes for a lovely lunch.”, Barr’s story take off with a bullet, keeping you engaged until the very end. Her prose is solid, with just the right balance of description and action. Sure, there’s bondage and some kinky stuff but nothing so over-the-top that it truly shocks. The author does a great job in conveying Dana’s vulnerability, especially as the story unfolds and the reader learns about her childhood and about her earlier foray into BDSM with her previous lover. One also begins to better understand her relationship with her somewhat sadistic Dominant, Dare. If I was pitching this book, it would be along the lines of “House Hunters Gets Its Kink On a la 50 Shades of Grey”. Granted, this isn’t everyone’s kind of book but for those readers who like a little kink to spice up their whodunits, Expired Listings is the perfect read. Highly recommended!
Definitely targeted for an adult audience, Expired Listings is one of those books that have an entertaining development, mixing moments of thrill with hilarious situations, and by adding a lot of erotic scenes, the author D.M. Barr reaches different types of readers.
The story shows a hidden side of the real estate industry, or at least a side as seen by the author.
Beside all the intrigues, murders and excitement that surround her, a woman struggles with her emotions and her complicated relationships. Dana Black, a real estate agent in Rock Canyon, seems to have some unresolved issues related to her childhood, but her adult life is not much easier. Finding herself in the middle of what looks like a conspiracy, meant to blame her for the murders of some real estate agents, Dana has to find the real killer in order to drop any suspicion that could plan above her.
The book keeps the reader turning page after page, and with the succession of comic, suspense, excitement and erotism, they can never get bored.
D. M. Barr has done a great job of creating a comedy that teases an industry that is very deserving. I really enjoyed the opinions of the people in the community as they found out that the agents were being killed. It wasn’t that they were indifferent toward it, but they were actually very receptive and almost acted like cheer leaders for the murderer. The novel was well written and the author shows that she has a promising future in the genre.
Turns out, I do not disappoint at all as the author delivers Expired Listings in the best way. The main idea of the book is quite complicated but the author manages to make it simple and not as complex as it sounds. Throughout the book development, you could understand everything as the elements start to reveal itself one by one. It starts with the real estate industry then it goes on with another element. The author writing and story telling style blends very well, you could barely realise that you are reading the next element. The plot is strong enough with all the problems for Dana comes one by one. It just intensifies the suspense and of course, the ending of this book is really amazing.
As for characterisation themselves, I like that the author didnt divide the attention for Dare and Aidan, they were both given equal attention. Dana herself is a consistent character. She is strong from the beginning of the story which the author let us know by telling us about her family and throughout the story development, she continues being so.
Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to try to read a new genre or erotica book's readers, as this one offers the same but with the thicker plot.
