LET'S GET COZY! HOME FOR THE HOMICIDE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED
HOME FOR THE HOMICIDE 
A Do-It-Yourself Mystery
BY JENNIE BENTLEY 
ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Avery Baker was a big city textile designer, until she inherited her aunt’s old Maine cottage and found her true calling—home renovation. But she never expected her latest job would come to such a bone-rattling dead end...

For Avery and her husband Derek, renovating the Craftsman Bungalow was like stepping back in time. The quaint old home was just as its original owners had left it—from the beautiful butler’s pantry to the surprisingly exquisite ribbon tile. But it’s the attic that yields the most heart-stopping surprise.

In a discreetly hidden antique crate, Avery finds a clue to a decades-old missing persons case. As Avery works on the house and delves deeper into the sinister story, it becomes clear that someone very crafty wants the Craftsman home’s secrets to stay that way! 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A career as a REALTOR® and professional renovator has given debut author Jennie Bentley plenty of fodder for her new series of Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation Mysteries from Penguin/Putnam.

She has stumbled over dead bodies — those of birds, cockroaches, and the occasional rat; unearthed buried treasure — gorgeous tile floors hidden under ugly vinyl, pristine footed bathtubs covered over with drywall; and had personal experience with just how dangerous renovating a house can be — she and her husband have come close to killing each other on many occasions while renovating the eight houses the family has owned in the past eight years.

Jennie lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband and two children.

What an interesting concept! We fulfilled a longtime dream last year of buying an older home to renovate. It is not an overnight process, but a rewarding one.

The start of the mystery is a different twist from finding a body at the beginning! I also love that she is working on a craftsman style house.
