Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business.

Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed–or kissed–by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall. *** Contains an excerpt from HOT PROPERTY, Savannah Martin mystery #2

“At last a page turner novel that doesn’t disappoint…” “This is powerful and atmospheric storytelling…” “Absolutely brilliantly written from start to finish.” “An outstanding book, detailing life from so many viewpoints. This is a complex story, enhanced by clever, talented writing. Very highly recommended.” Anita Waller, author. Could you forgive murder?

Things are not as they seem.Perhaps he should have stayed at home. I thought about this book for days after I’d digested the final few pages…Jim Ody, author of Lost Connections An eye-opening, honest and brutal story, Fifty Years of Fear is a cleverly written book. As always, Ross Greenwood draws you in until you’re completely invested with the characters… Tara Lyons, bestselling author of the DI Hamilton series. The more I read, the more I wanted to read. There were a lot of nice lines throughout, and the humour took the edge off the awful things that happened… Tony Forder, author of Bad to the Bone. An unmissable, heart-wrenching thriller… Netta Newbound, top-selling author of The Watcher Told with such insight and depth, the characters felt very real to me and Vinnie, one of the two brothers, ended up breaking my heart! … Jane E James, author of haunting thriller, The Crying Boy. This is one of those books that long after I have forgotten the details I will still remember how it made me feel. It’s a much used phrase, but I feel like I’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster and need a wee bit of recovery time. This is the first time I have read anything from Ross Greenwood and was impressed by his storytelling and the way the characters, particularly Vinnie, felt so real. This wasn’t always comfortable to read but it is well worth enduring the discomfort for what is a cleverly constructed piece of writing. Highly recommended.Right from the first chapter, I was hooked. This is the first book I have read by Ross Greenwood and I loved his style of writing; the story flows easily and you are drawn in by his characters.My first read of Ross Greenwood I must say I really enjoy his writing style. It flows along beautifully.I thoroughly enjoyed this gripping tale of misfortune and adversary.Ross Greenwood’s characters are convincingly-drawn and the story held me in its grip the whole way through.A fantastic read with brilliant characters. I really felt for Vinnie. It had me gripped from start to finish. 5*. Highly recommended.
