Reviewed by Steven Robson for Readers' Favorite
Fatal Flip: A Home Renovator Mystery by M. E. Bakos is a wholesome tale of one woman's struggle to successfully chart a course through a troubled economic climate, whilst coping with some of the more extreme elements of society not normally encountered in day to day life. After losing her job at a large Medical Organization, thirty-five-year-old widow Katelyn Baxter decides to pursue her passion for home renovation by becoming a house flipper. Little did Kate know that her first project would bring with it a dark secret hidden in the attic, one that would set her on a course of investigation and discovery. Kate's determination to succeed drives her to resolve the mystery found in her attic and remove the main obstacle to her sale of the home. Little did she know that this path would lead to unexpected dangers which ultimately placed her very life in danger.

M. E. Bakos' Fatal Flip: A Home Renovator Mystery is a very easy read, being smoothly laid out and couched in language that is clear and concise. The characters are all quite true to human nature, being varied and complex in their depth of emotions and idiosyncratic traits. I found the development of the relationship between Kate and Sheriff Don Williams was particularly well structured, starting initially from a base of awkwardness, and possibly even mistrust, slowly moving through uncertainty to a point of mutual attraction. This came through as being very real and facilitated strong bonds with both of these personas. Reading this book is a definite feel-good experience. In summary, well done on a very good book.
