From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns...

Some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried forever.

Real estate agent and super sleuth, Cindy York, has always been haunted by thoughts of her childhood friend, Paul Steadman, who committed suicide 25 years ago. A high school reunion and the prospective sale of his former home—where Cindy was the one to discover his lifeless body—bring the memories back in full force. New boss and best friend, Jacques Forte, pleads with her to accept the listing as their agency is going through some rough financial times.
But Cindy gets more than she negotiated for when new information comes to light that convinces her Paul’s death was anything but self-inflicted. Vowing justice for her friend, Cindy’s meddling only leads to further complications with the Steadman family as she quickly uncovers hot details to a very cold case. Cindy needs to close the deal and find a killer—before she too winds up six feet under!

“Priced to Kill” earns 5/5 Cold Case Conundrum…Clever!

Binging is so much fun! I just finished book one of the Cindy York Mystery series “Killer Transaction” and didn't have to wait months to move right on to the next adventure…and what an adventure!

New boss, new company, better success for Cindy York, but her past comes knocking…well, phoning. Twenty-five years ago Cindy was devastated to discover the body of her high school friend Paul Steadman; authorities labeled his tragic death a suicide. And now? Paul’s older/surviving sibling Ben, is hosting the twenty-fifth High school reunion dinner and is personally extending an invitation reminding her of the time capsule they plan to open. He also hopes she will take the lead to sell the family’s Victorian, the same house in which she found her dear friend’s body. Wow! Fans will be thrilled and newbies will be hooked when the circumstances surrounding Paul’s death turns from suicide to murder. And Cindy is determined to uncover the truth!

Catherine Bruns has penned an exciting sequel. Karma has been on hold, biding it's time for the killer to be brought to justice. But better late than never, I always say! Cindy is still juggling family and career, and after the unfortunate circumstances with her previous real estate office, her BFF/colleague Jacques Forte has invited her to join him in his spin-off, Forte Realty. The cold case was very engaging with a wonderful first-person narrative and descriptive style that Catherine’s fans, like me, enjoy. But she doesn't rely only on the narrative as she includes delightful dialogue and interactions with her loving husband, hand-full twins, typical teenage daughter, and the epitome of a “monster-in-law”! Karma is a common theme in Bruns’ work for us to vicariously enjoy, but when is the mother-in-law going to be served a big dose! She desperately needs it! I highly recommend this second book, but to enjoy the character growth don't pass up the first book in the series “Killer Transaction.”
