For Andi, moving into her first condo seemed like euphoria...until she finds a dead body in the dumpster and all the HOA fines start coming through. Geez, it seems like you can't even turn around without breaking some sort of violation from the homeowner's association. There was just too many rules! And if the dead lady in the dumpster was part of the HOA board, then any one of the neighbors could've killed her.
It would seem the town reverend is the prime suspect in the murder, but Andi doesn't think so. Of course, she didn't really set off trying to find the killer. She just sort've fell into the gig in the midst of fighting the jerk president in charge of the HOA board. And it would seem that everyone in town had an opinion to who dunit.
This little mystery was pretty engaging overall, but it was a little confusing keeping up with all the assumptions and the clues. I mean, it didn't quite make sense right away. And the fact that we were dealing with an amateur sleuth didn't make it that much more engaging. But I did feel for Andi as she helplessly fought to keep the HOA off her back, while, at the same time, trying to evade a killer.
A suitable read.
