Landlocked by Marilyn Baron

Amelia Rushing is an inexperienced South Florida realtor with weather issues, and a loser at love. Her grandmother asks her to sell some property on an isolated North Carolina mountaintop. Upon investigation, Amelia finds the tract is landlocked. Determined to make her first sale and right the injustice to her grandmother, Amelia travels to the town of Confrontation and enlists the help of local real estate attorney, Alec Brady, who thwarts her at every turn. 

Sparks fly when Amelia announces her plans to move into her grandmother's cabin until she can sell the property. It is Alec’s current home, and he’s not giving it up. When Amelia discovers that thirty years ago a prominent landscape artist disappeared in the town of Confrontation, she is anxious to solve the decades-old mystery, but there’s a serial killer on the loose. A number of people are missing but no witnesses are coming forward. What is the community hiding, and does Alec know where the bodies are buried?

My review:
Landlocked is a quirky, sweet romantic mystery.  I’ll admit I had to push past the legalese to get into the story but once there I couldn’t read fast enough. Landlocked is an ambitious tale with several subplots each more riveting than the next.  This is my first venture into reading Marilyn Baron’s work but you can bet I will be checking out her backlist.
