Flipped Out

Author Jennie Bently, a native of Nashville, TN, has made the New York Times Bestseller list with her new book Flipped Out. This is the fifth book in Jennie Bentley's bestselling Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation mysteries published by Penguin/Berkley Prime Crime. The book features Avery Baker, a textile designer, and Avery Baker's boyfriend, a local handyman, who renovates houses in the fictitious town of Waterfield, Maine. Flipped Out is the fifth book in this series, and she is currently writing number six.

The main character in the book is Avery, who is a transplant from New York who has fallen in love with Waterfield, Maine. She works with her boyfriend, Derek, at renovating properties. In this book, they are renovating the home of a local TV personality and fiancee of Derek's ex-wife, Melissa. A DIY television show is planning to tape the renovation.

Avery and Derek walk the crew through the house on the first day, and set up a time line for the film. The next morning Avery and Derek arrive at the house to start their renovation and soon find out that the homeowner has been murdered by a screwdriver. Suspicions soon fall to Melissa, but Avery does not think she is the killer. Avery and Derek soon find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery that they have to solve.

The story is very well-detailed and the plot is excellent. She does a tremendous job blending in the back story. It's a quick read and one you will not be able to put down until you turn the last page.
