Unreal Estate Series: Book 1 – One Crooked House
Mandy-Lynn Snow is not your run-of-the-mill real estate agent.
If you are trying to sell a property that is haunted, cursed, or a former insane asylum, Mandy-Lynn is the real estate agent for you. She will exorcise those ‘hidden defects’ faster that you can say, “Is that a really bad paint job? Or are the walls bleeding?” Unless things go horribly wrong, of course.
Mandy-Lynn Snow was running for her life, her crimson real estate blazer flapping in the wind, when her cell phone beeped that a text had come in. She didn’t even try to read it, let alone respond. ‘Death by texting while being chased by a tiger’ was just about the last thing she wanted headlining her obituary.
The tiger that was chasing her swerved left. She swerved right. The tiger wasn’t fooled. In two strides it was breathing down her neck again. She spotted the swimming pool dead ahead, but hopefully not dead ahead. Yup, the real estate info had said that there was an in-ground pool. But it hadn’t said anything about a tiger in the solarium.
Could tigers swim? Of course they could, but they probably didn’t like water. They were cats after all. Mandy-Lynn dodged around a perfectly trimmed ornamental shrub and leapt feet-first into the pool. Her sensible heels broke through a wafer-thin layer of ice on impact. Well, it was mid-November in the Northern Hemisphere, so ice was to be expected. Give it a few more weeks and she could have skated on the swimming pool.
Mandy-Lynn managed to haul in one deep breath before she sank under water that was every bit as cold as the ice that had capped it. She had landed in the deep end, and was in over her head, in more ways than one. Perhaps because of the adrenalin surging through her veins, and the 100-yard dash she had just sprinted, the frigid water did not feel quite as shocking as it might.
She held that precious breath as she sank to the bottom of the pool, waiting to see if the tiger was inclined to join her for a swim.
