From the Author
In the classes, there was a lot of talk about personal safety, and about the many things that might lurk inside an empty house - from murderers and rapists to flashers and muggers - and the idea of a brand new realtor walking into an empty house and finding a dead body came from that.
The book title was easy. Real estate is a tough, competitive, dog-eat-dog business, and I never stood a chance of making it as a realtor. Not cutthroat enough; a trait Savannah shares. By 2008, I had retired my license and was writing full time. And that's the story of how the Savannah Martin series came to be, and also the story of how I ended up with job I could fit around my kids' schedule. It just wasn't the job I thought I'd end up with.
