Publisher's Summary

It's usually just routine for Casey Clark, property manager at Peller Realty. When a tenant refuses to pay rent, just evict and move on. Not so with the tenant from Hell. He draws Casey into murder, drug rings, ghosts, Indians, and a hectic trip to Hell in Georgia.

Her worst problem of having to deal with her psychic cat Dixie not getting along with Casey's pirate boyfriend's parrot changes into scrambling to stay alive. 

Excerpt:

You might think a property manager at a large real estate firm might have a dull job. Let me tell you, it's not. Tenants can be some weird characters and owners not much better. I had a feeling today would not be like any other. I had just gotten off the phone with a slightly hysterical lady who wanted Peller to manage her property.

"Right now," she insisted. "You need to get over here quick before Mike kills him." 

The “kills him” part warned me I should not touch this one. The business side screamed, “Go get it before she calls Sunny Side Realty or one of your other rivals.” 

Naturally, I wanted that 20 percent commission. Actually I only get half of it; my broker, Lisa Lee Loren, claims the other half between her and the company owner, J. M. Peller. 

Among us agents, we thought the J. M. stood for “Jesus” and “Mary” as he played the religious card to the hilt. He was a deacon in his church in Jacksonville, and wanted to give the impression he would never do anything evil. 

He didn’t. He had a hatchet man, Dwight Kickum, who did the dirty work.

Suspenseful

Never have I been more terrified of the realtor career than I was in this book. What should’ve been a simple eviction of a stubborn tenant turns into a trip from Hell for realtor Casey.

Although a short book, the suspense was done in a very tasteful manner. Usually, I can guess where something is going to go, but that wasn’t the case with this book. Kept me on my toes right until the end!

Narration was well done.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Short Mystery

I did enjoy this cozy short mystery due to the character of Casey who is one tough courageous lady to go thru what she does, even changing her hair color (but wonder did she turn it back) as she investigates and murders try to find her. It was my 1st book by author and look forward to more. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

It’s Okay

This was an okay book. It is a short mystery and because it’s short, it felt a bit rushed. Nothing new here, very predictable. I could not really get into the main character Casey. In my opinion she had no since of self preservation at all. Like some mystery novels, and far more than I would like, the heroine is often silly, usually solving the mystery by happenstance rather than using any intelligence whatsoever. Two murders, no big deal, I’ll just see what I can find out without any help or notifying anybody about what I’m doing or where I’m going.

The narrator was just okay as well. I listen to a lot of audiobooks. I have a long commute. Often, I miss out on books because there is a disconnect between the narrator and the tone of the book’s characters. A humorous books with a dry lackluster narrator....an exciting thriller with a slow monotone narrator.....an adult novel with a narrator that sounds like a teenager. Unfortunately, this book suffers from that sort of disconnection. I may have enjoyed it more if the narrator didn’t sound bored.

In short, it’s an okay book that will keep you somewhat entertained. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

"One of ours."

Little did realtor letting manager, Casey Clarke, suspect that agreeing to place an eviction order on the tenants of a house in St.Augustine, F!orida, would bring such chaos into her life. Threatened, being witness to murdet, hiding from the law and being almost murdered herself - and that was just the beginning. She should have listened to her psychic cat...

The Tenant from Hell is an entertaining and fast action story, quite short at just over three hours, so an easy read to fit into a lazy evening or longish journey. The characters are not exactly three dimensional living beings but are developed enough to carry the story.and narration by Lee Ann Howard is brisk, clear and we!l modulated, carrying the reader onwards. This is a perfect, understanding but interesting read, with some unexpected moments. My thanks to the rights holder of the book who, at my request freely me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. It is the first in a new series which promises to be fun.
