Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling Savannah Martin romantic mystery series. 
Savannah has always been a good girl, doing what was expected and fully expecting life to fall into place in its turn. But when her perfect husband turns out to be a lying, cheating slimeball - and bad in bed to boot - Savannah kicks the jerk to the curb and embarks on life on her own terms. With a new apartment, a new career, and a brand new outlook on life, she's all set to take the world by storm. If only the world would stop throwing her curveballs...

Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn't think she's supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the 'bad' side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.  
Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future--not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.  
Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed--or kissed--by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.

From the Author:

The idea for A Cutthroat Business came to me back in 2005, when I was studying for my real estate license. I had a 6-year-old and a 2-year-old and a desperate need for a job I could fit around my kids' schedule, and real estate seemed like a good idea. There was a lot of talk about personal safety, and about the many things that might lurk inside an empty house - from murderers and rapists to flashers and muggers - and the idea of a brand new realtor walking into an empty house and finding a dead body came from that. 

The title was easy. Real estate is a tough, competitive, dog-eat-dog business, and I never stood a chance of making it. By 2008, I had retired my license and was writing full time. And that's the story of how the Savannah Martin series came to be, and also the story of how I ended up with job I could fit around my kids' schedule. It just wasn't the job I thought I'd end up with.
