Yelling, howling and gunshots produce a dead neighbor in the back yard. The story is off and running. I enjoyed these characters, and the read, through a moderately paced mystery. Complications are varied and led me in reasonable “red herring” directions. The outcome had a logical twist and left me, as a reader, satisfied.
What would you do if someone died in your back yard? You're certain it was murder, but the evidence clearly indicates suicide.
As well as an absorbing mystery, Ms. Jarvis takes us on a journey many would fear to tread. However, this time, it's not only the heroic Regan McHenry who's anxious to find the truth. Her husband, Tom, whose usually the reluctant one, leads the way, much to the shock of Regan and their loyal but fearful Santa Cruz Police Ombudsman Dave Everett.
Death occurs every day. Can you answer the question; have you bought a place where a murder occurred? If there are laws regarding such in your state, it's usually three years. Would you want to know?
The premise of A Neighborly Killing is unique, modern, filled with intrigue, and has a compelling and satisfying ending. Well done, Nancy Lynn Jarvis, you have an award winner!
Another enjoyable romp in the Regan McHenry Real Estate Mystery series. Nancy Lynn Jarvis has a wonderful knack for telling compelling stories with interesting characters, and the characters in this one will keep you guessing. Her descriptions of the area and the events are so well done that I felt like I walked alongside Regan as she solved another mystery!
Just finished my second Nancy Lynn Jarvis book. I haven't been able to put it down. Absolutely love her writing. Gotta go, my next one, Buying Murder is screaming at me. Love Nancy Lynn Jarvis, highly recommend.
I am loving her stories and she shows improvement with each new book. I enjoy that she incorporates all the local hot spots and personalities of her characters from the Santa Cruz area. Can't wait for the next book!
