Fatal Flip: A Home Renovator Mystery
by M. E. Bakos
With non-stop action, I never knew what was going to happen next. If you enjoy a page turner this one will keep your attention.
A fast-paced, intriguing yet character-endearing, cozy mystery, with a delightful frisson of clever humor and realistic ups and downs . . .
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
Fatal Flip is an amusing cozy mystery that will have you in stitches.
~The Avid Reader
There is nearly non-stop action and a few unexpected twists. There is also just enough humor to keep things from getting too intense.
I liked that the story is set around a home renovator/flipper. Granted her first house doesn’t start out with a bang like she had hoped, but that doesn’t stop Katelyn from giving 100% in doing her job and finding out how a dead body ended up in the home she purchased.
Fatal Flip gives the reader non-stop action and some twists and turns that might have your head spinning.

Flipping houses can be fatal! When Katelyn finds a dead body in her first home renovation project, she seriously doubts her decision to “follow her bliss.” After getting fired from her steady job, her plan to flip houses takes a hit when she becomes a suspect. After all, possession is nine points of the law, isn’t it? Especially, when it’s a dead body.
To keep herself in pizza, peanut butter, good coffee, and her stray cat, Boots, in kitty chow she takes survival jobs as a wine sample hostess and market researcher. Meanwhile, Sheriff Don is kind of hunky, and her ex-husband, Eddy (it’s complicated) is back in her life sleeping on her sofa. How’s a girl supposed to solve dead body mysteries, make a living, and find love?
