It's fun to buy a house. Unless, there is something hidden behind the walls and someone wants it. Someone who is willing to kill for it. Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar, but the guy she's most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fund-raiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie, Scoobie, and friends need to figure who left a cache of jewelry behind the walls in her house. And who is going to help her cat Jazz feel at home in the new house? Maybe a different kind of pet...

The audio edition does bring the characters to life to a certain extent. Loved the hollow sound for when she was talking to herself. Seemed strange to be read by a man for a female lead, but then most of the other characters were male.
Despite the fact that there are murders, there is no grisly description. Lots of human interaction that seemed quite realistic.
Every time I had to quit listening, I was eager to return.
