Dying for a Change
By Kathleen Delaney 

Dying for a Change is fresh and takes mysteries to a different step and introduces the reader to Ellen McKenzie, who is attempting to sell her first home in her new job as a realtor. Little does she know until right before the prospective buyers arrive that she would find something in a closet that she just was not expecting. The “something” is Hank, a local carpenter who helps the real estate agency that Ellen works for, plus working on the addition of a large store. There is also a parallel story line about how a small town is about to be converted by the addition of a large store that will destroy the business of some small store owners.

     Dying for a Change is fast-paced and keeps the reader interested. The idea of having a realtor as the main character who gets caught up in murder is refreshing. The characterization of Ellen is good and the reader feels how anxious she is about selling houses, and the overwhelming feelings Ellen has about the new store versus the old smaller stores. The plot could only take place in a small suburb or rural town where bigger companies attempt to overtake the areas.
