From Goodreads:
Deciding if she wants to go into real estate becomes a life-or-death choice for Aurora "Roe" Teagarden. A naked corpse is discovered at her first house showing. And when a second body is found in another house for sale, it becomes obvious that there is a very cool killer at large in Lawrenceton, one who knows a great deal about real estate-and maybe too much about Roe.

This started off interesting, then quickly got boring. It just didn’t live up to the other mysteries this author has written. It was a definite miss. The story dragged on and on. At one point, it took three pages for the main character to get ready. The characters weren’t vivid and I didn’t really care who the killer was. I didn’t feel any sense of menace or suspense. Also, Roe’s romance - I didn’t like the direction that took. I might try the next one because I’m interested in the mystery surrounding the Julius house. If it’s as slow as this one, I probably won’t continue with the series.
