Blog Tour & Review: A BODY IN THE ATTIC : A Body in Mystery by Judi Lynn

About the Book:

Welcome to River Bluffs, Indiana, a cozy small town populated with charming homes, close-knit families, and the occasional deadly secret . . .

House-flipper Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod have found their latest project. The property, formerly owned by the late Cal Juniper, is filled with debris that must be cleared before the real renovation begins. But a trip to the attic reveals something more disturbing than forgotten garbage—a skeleton wearing a locket and rings that Jazzi recognizes . . .

Tests confirm that the bones belong to Jazzi’s aunt Lynda, who everyone assumed moved to New York years ago after breaking up with Cal. Soon enough, the whole family is involved, sifting through memories and rumors as they try to piece together what really happened to Lynda—and the baby she gave up for adoption. In between investigating and remodeling, Jazzi is falling for the old house’s charms—and for her gorgeous contractor, Ansel. But with surprises lurking in every nook and cranny, a killer might be waiting to demolish her dreams for good . . .


Jazzi, Jerod and Ansel are a great team - reconstructing homes to flip them or buy for themselves. Cal Juniper's home is beautiful but renters and the nephews who inherited didn't take care of it, not to mention a lot of missing antiques and art. They work well together despite the skeleton and the detective who keeps asking Jazzi to help him - people like her and open up to her. The best character though is grandma who isn't always lucid but knows more than is good for her. There are lots of suspects for Lynda's murder and things get complicated - all seemingly connected to the decades old crime. 

This is well-written, well-paced, and a good break. Lynn has captured the dysfunctional sides of some families and people, as well as the potential for happiness. I hope we see a lot more of Jazzi and her family in the future. Like mystery, romance, and great characters? You'll like this one.
