    Better than the first

    Jazzi, Jerod, Ansel and George are back and are still flipping houses…and finding dead bodies. In the second installment we see the team helping Jazzi’s sister, Olivia and her husband Thane rehab their own fixer upper. While working on the house, Jazzi becomes friendly with one of the neighbors and his lab. She also ends up coming across dead bodies and finds herself working along side Detective Gaff as he looks into the murders, because it’s every day that a detective brings along a civilian to interrogate people, since they’re more likely to talk to her than him. This is the one part of this series that seems to fray on my nerves…it is totally unrealistic. But aside from that I actually enjoy the characters and the writing and the second book was far more enjoyable than the first.

    3 1/2 stars - good story but unlikely

    These books are interesting and I like the characters, however I feel like the author has never done renovations. The way they go so fast through the renos just doesn't happen in real life.

    Cozy Mystery Heavy on Bodies and Romance

    This house again has "good bones," so much of the work will be cosmetic as opposed to the sledgehammer they took to the walls of the last house. In the middle of the remodeling, Ansel is called back to the old family farm to help with their urgent repair problems and her cousin comes down with the flu. Jazzi and the neighbor's dog find (not one, but) two bodies near their flipper. With Jerod sick, Jazzi is free to flit around with Detective Gaff, whom she got to know very well last episode. Detective Gaff, it would appear, loves to invite her along on his interviews. And, unfortunately, two is not the end of finding bodies. The mystery moves at cozy pace with snippets of remodeling interwoven with red herrings and twists. The characters take the spotlight. There is more fleshing of Ansel, as well as the explanation of Jazzi's reticence due to a previous relationship failure. The antagonist begins to materialize as a bit obvious rather soon after he is introduced. Bottom Line: I do enjoy this series, the setting and family characters become engaging, and I will continue to look for the next one. The pacing is even and well-plotted into a downplayed, almost anticlimactic conclusion. While dialogue is clean and for the most part natural, I still felt some relationship problems between she and Ansel. So, my problems: (1) Disbelief in the speed and description of the rehabbing process, (2) too much romance in a cozy mystery, and (3) support role with the detective--unrealistic. I received this ebook download from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest opinion and appreciated the opportunity to read and review. Recommended for those who enjoy a different type of backdrop in a cozy with some romance.

    Second book in series!

    The Body in the Wetlands is the second novel in A Jazzi Zanders Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone if you have not picked up The Body in the Attic. I thought The Boyd in the Wetlands contained good writing and it proceeded at a fixed speed (I am tired of saying steady pacing) which makes it pleasant to read. The main characters are friendly and relatable. It is kind of Ansel, Jerod and Jazzi to take time off from their current flip to work on Olivia and Thane’s new home despite the hot August heat. I like that Jazzi is close to her family and that they have a big Sunday dinner each week. Ansel is estranged from his family after they forced him to depart from the family dairy farm after he graduated from high school. He is shocked when his brother calls because they need his help after Ansel’s father had surgery and his other brother fell off the roof breaking his leg. I could feel Ansel’s emotions. He is hurt by the way his family treated him and that they have only called him because they need help (and cannot afford to hire assistance). The mystery has red herrings to distract readers from solving this multifaceted whodunit. George, Ansel’s pug, is back plus Jazzi adds two new furry friends to the household who are adorable and mischievous. I was turned off by the excessive alcohol consumption by our characters, the focus on appearances and the attention paid to intimate relations. It was a little much for a cozy mystery. I am curious as to why permits are never mentioned when they plan their work. There is an especially sweet and romantic scene towards the end of the book that will delight readers. The Boyd in the Wetlands is an entertaining cozy mystery with house flipping, close friends, adorable fur babies, family drama, romance, two dead bodies, one missing person and a cagey killer.

    Amazing story

    Fantastic story. Read the first in the series and this story is equally captivating. Story flows easily. No boring filler info. I highly recommend. Can hardly for the next book in the series.
