Nora Bannister is a bestselling mystery novelist who buys run-down houses in LA. While her business partners turn the house into a showpiece, Nora makes it the scene of a grisly murder in her House To Die For series. As soon as the new book goes on sale, so does the house -- and the bidding frenzy begins.  It seems a lot of people are willing to pay a lot of money to live in a real house where a fictional character has died a violent death.

Just before Nora's latest book hits the market, one of her house-flipping partners is murdered.  LAPD Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs are assigned the case, but this one is a hot potato -- the dead woman is also the wife of one of their fellow cops. As Mike and Terry dig into the victim's private life, more bodies turn up . . . 

Is someone stalking the house flippers or is the murderer after cops' wives?  Either way, Mike and Terry have to track down the killer before he murders his next logical target -- Marilyn Biggs, Terry's wife.

A perfect lightweight detective novel. A completel treat to read. Good writing, well thought out plot without major holes, interesting twists, and funny dialogue that makes sense. Manages to give each character their own voice while having the humor make sense. Adequately develops the characters in the flow of the novel. I'll read the rest of the series and hope for more to come.
