    Murder and sparring seniors stir up trouble for a spunky, small-town Georgia realtor in this cozy mystery by the author of Realtor Rub Out.   I made a promise, multiple times actually, to my husband, the Bramblett County Sheriff. I promised I wouldn’t put my life at risk doing his job. But… when I find my potential client’s son standing over her dead body, all bets are off. I just can’t let it go, no matter how hard I try.   Truth be told, I’d put myself up against a murderer any day if it kept me from taking sides between Henrietta and Bonnie, besties currently on the outs. Risking my life is one thing, but getting between those two is something no person in their right mind should do.   Who am I kidding? I can’t stop myself from trying to help them too. I just hope I come out of this alive.  “The supporting characters are a hoot!” —Caroline Fardig, USA Today–bestselling author
