Publisher's Summary

If you’re a fan of contemporary romantic comedy sprinkled with a heavy dose of mystery, then step into the world of NY Times and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Skully!

Welcome back to Cottonmouth!

There’s something very special about the house Maggie grew up in. It’s sort of... alive. With a mind of its own.

And it has plans for the people living there now.

All Maggie Halliday has left after the divorce is the family dog and the home her grandmother left to her when she passed away two months ago. Maggie’s got no other choice but to run back to her hometown of Cottonmouth, California, only to discover her high school sweetheart, Cooper Trubek, is living in the house, along with four other boarders for whom Maggie is now responsible. And according to Nana’s will, Maggie can’t kick any of them out.

Unless one of them commits murder.

Still grieving for her grandmother and trying fix up the house that seems to be falling down around her, Maggie’s got more trouble than she can handle. Then things go from bad to worse when Samson the dog starts digging in the basement…

Not as good as the first 2.

I was hoping this was as good as the first two but I really didn't care for it. The story line and writing style seemed a little juvenile. Although I have read another book with a "living " house, this one doesn't hit the mark. The characters lacked depth and in general were not people that I could empathize with.
