Scammed (Revenge is Fun #5) - Review by Martha A. Cheves
Struggling to keep her voice level she said, Don't worry. I'm fine. Just a little exhausted. You know we had the HOA Board meeting last night. Well, Al Shady didn't show up and his wife was concerned so she left early to check on him. When the meeting was over, we still hadn't heard anything from either of them. The Colonel brought one of our neighbors to the meeting and we all walked home together. He's a former FBI guy turned author. We passed the Shady house and decided to check on them to make sure everything was okay. It wasn't. The front door was ajar and the place looked like it was ransacked. Both of the Shadys are missing and the cops are on it.
Cameron's boyfriend Milton has concerns for her safety. It seems that crime seems to follow her and her friends Kate and Kim, constantly putting them in harm's way. So, when the HOA vice president Al and his wife Barbara turn up missing, there is no doubt that the trio will find themselves trying to solve yet another mystery. But, this one hits home not only with Cameron but also with a few other members from the HOA. It turns out that Barbara was the treasurer and due to a settlement the HOA had recently received, they are afraid the money has something to do with the missing couple.
As always, Scammed kept me turning the pages. With each book in this series that I've read, I can't help but wish someone would pick them up for a TV series. They are an update and upgrade for the Murder She Wrote series. I love them and can't wait for more.
