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 . . .

Review of THE BODY IN THE ATTIC
by Judi Lynn
THE BODY IN THE ATTIC is #1 in a new series by Judi Lynn, a series I plan to read in its entirety, as I adored this cozy mystery novel. I should say “multiple mystery,” plus family, friendship, romance. Ms. Lynn is very good writer and certainly maintained my attention and interest throughout, to the point that I was disgruntled to have to set the engrossing story aside for real life
In a good-sized city in Indiana, a town that still maintains its “community feel,” Jazzie Xanders and cousin Jerod are “flippers,” who buy houses at estate sales and foreclosures, renovate and improve the structures and interiors, and then sell them for a small profit. Jerod got the house he and his wife and children inhabit this way, and now Jazzie is sure hankering for their newest venture, a beautiful older house in the country who belonged to a wealthy, compassionate individual—who just happened to have been engaged, twenty-six years ago, to Jazzie's mother's older sister.
So many personalities comprise this book, and multiple mysteries, and a lot of deep emotional currents. Ms. Lynn fantastically weaves present and past and gently unravels the mysteries, keeping her readers glued to the page!
