Raina Sun is newly married and enjoying her role as the police station's unofficial pastry chef. When her husband bought a dilapidated old house on a steal, they are thrown into a whirlwind of construction activities with well-meaning relatives coming into town, permit issues, and a dead body behind the drywall of the living room.
With all construction activities at a standstill and her husband working overtime to help with the cash flow, Raina must solve this cold case to get her life back on track. With the help of the geriatric Posse Club, will Raina find the hidden killer after all this time or will she become the next victim?
Great addition to this series
Do you love watching This Old House and house flipping shows on TV. Newlyweds Raina and Matthew have just bought their first house together, and boy is it a fixer upper. More things can hide behind old walls than just faulty wiring and bad plumbing. When a long dead body falls out of a wall that Po Po has taken a sledgehammer to, the chase is on to solve to who and why. With Matthew away and Po Po’s posse unavailable, it’s up to Raina and Po Po to solve the mystery, before the house is repossessed for not being completed on time.
Full disclosure. I did receive a review copy, BUT, I preordered this first day available, so I have paid to read. In fact, I’ve already preordered Ms. Tan’s next two books.
I ordered the first set and enjoyed the characters so much, I had to order more to keep reading about them.
The series keeps improving!
Loved this! Once again, it’s up to Raina and Po Po to solve the case.
