Death at a Fixer Upper
by Sarah T. Hobart
Death at a Fixer-Upper is a sassy and sarcastic page turner that keeps you guessing until the end…
I would have to say that Sarah Hobart has a way with words. The opening page set the mood and pace of the story and it just ran from there.
~I Read What You Write!
This is a fantastic new cozy series about a real estate agent (which sort of hits home since hubby is in that business).
This cozy mystery is a little snarkier and steamier than some in the genre, which takes some getting used to, but the story is well-paced and the mystery is spot on.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
The story is fairly quickly paced and I found Ms. Hobart’s author’s voice enjoyable.

This book was well written and flowed well…

Death at a Fixer Upper is a case study in support of the theory that, when one wants something to go quickly, smoothly, and well, anything and everything will happen to make circumstances confusing, complicated, and complex.
~The Girl with Book Lungs
The element of the story I found most intriguing was the potentially haunted, fixer-upper, Victorian house for sale and it’s beautifully descriptive rose gardens.
What a fun new series! It has murder and suspense, but it also has plenty of humor.
Death at a Fixer-Upper: A Home Sweet Home Mystery
Publisher: Alibi (May 17, 2016)
In Sarah T. Hobart’s wickedly funny and fast-paced Home Sweet Home mystery series, small-town real estate agent Sam Turner discovers it’s bad for business when her clients keep dropping dead.
Newly armed with her real estate license, Sam Turner loves Arlinda, her quirky seaside hometown in Northern California. But life by the beach isn’t exactly a breeze: She and her teenage son, Max, are being evicted from their apartment, her long absent ex-husband unexpectedly resurfaces, and her possibly romantic relationship with sexy Chief of Police Bernie Aguilar is, well . . . complicated. All Sam wants is a quick and easy sale. What she gets instead is a killer headache—or three.
Sam’s trying to drum up interest in 13 Aster Lane, a rambling Victorian fixer-upper that’s more than a little neglected—and possibly haunted—so when a trio of offers arrive out of the blue, she can’t help thinking it’s too good to be true. But after a new client drops dead on the property, she fears she’s lost more than a commission. Before Sam’s out of house and home, she must unmask a killer targeting her clients, or the only property she’ll be moving will be plots—at the local cemetery.
