Book Review: Hot Property by Jenna Bennett

Hot Property is the second book in Jenna Bennett’s Savannah Martin mystery series.

Here are my top three reasons to read this book:

1) The chemistry between Savannah and Rafe is off the charts and had me squealing at 1 am.

2) Ms. Bennett makes you feel like you are wandering the streets of Nashville with Savannah. This woman writes good setting.

3) Mystery is one of Ms. Bennett’s strengths. I wasn’t sure how this one would shake out until the heart-stopping end.

Maybe it’s because I went to Killer Nashville in 2009, but I loved how she brought the city to life on the page with just the right level of detail.

Ms. Bennett does a phenomenal job merging the romance and mystery genre here.

Rafe Collier and Savannah Martin smolder the pages. I’m surprised I don’t have burns on my fingertips. Seriously, fantastic chemistry and tension. I would sit through 200 pages of them just having dinner. Because they are that amazing to read.

There are elements of suspense as well that keep you turning those last 100 pages faster than a microwave can explode chicken.

If you love a good mystery and enjoy a dangerous flirtation that could break into a killer love scene at any moment, this is a book for you.

I’m looking forward to cracking open the third book in the Savannah Martin series. Or rather swiping the page on my Ipad. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for another review. I am currently reading your recommendation “Caught” by Harlan Coben. Soooo gooood! Keep them coming!

    • You’re welcome. This was a fun read. Very very different from Coben’s Caught. I try to mix it up. I like to review a book when I finish it. Helps me analyze what I liked and what worked for me as a reader. Hopefully, I can carry some of what I learn into my revisions.

  3. Sounds enticing! Thanks, Kourtney. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great review but where do u find the time. U have so much u are doing. Multi tasker x ten million.

    • I read at night before bed or when I’m waiting for an appointment or when I’m on a train to NY. Got a good amount of reading done in January. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a struggle. I want to read so many more books than I do. I have a bookcase of to-read books. I’m lucky to get to three books a month.

    Sounds excellent. I don’t usually read mysteries, but am aiming to mix up my booklist (which I’ll be posting about tomorrow, so this is great timing!) Thanks for the wonderful-sounding suggestion!
