House up for sale?
When the lockbox goes on, you won't believe what these agents pull off....
Someone is "deactivating" the realtors in Rock Canyon and almost no one seems to care. Not the surviving brokers, who consider the serial killings a competitive boon; not the town's residents, who see the murders as a public service. In fact, the only person who's even somewhat alarmed is Dana Black, a kinky, sharp-witted, yet emotionally skittish realtor who has no alibi for the crimes because, during each, she was using her empty listings for games like Bondage Bingo with her sadistic lover, Dare. And yet, mysteriously, all clues are pointing her way.
Along with clearing her name and avoiding certain death at the hands of the "Realtor Retaliator", Dana has an even bigger problem: she's inadvertently become a person of interest in more ways than one to Aidan Cummings, the sexy - albeit vanilla - detective investigating the case. While his attentions are tempting, Dana is torn. Does she continue her ironically "safe" but sterile BDSM relationship with Dare or risk real intimacy with Aidan?
Sex, suspense, and satire - Expired Listings masterfully combines all three while exploring the universal need for validation and the toxic nature of revenge.

Mystery, Kink, and Bad Puns! Bravo!
Barr's story moved fast from the start. The elements of mystery and her foray into the aspects of an alternative lifestyle were woven together with wit and style that makes her a refreshing read. Barr has a gift for humor and the precision of phrasing that takes you down the rabbit hole with her characters.
Throughout the story, the mystery built, not only about the murders, but also about Dana, Barr's protagonist, and her weird family dynamic. The why's and who's were overwhelming in such a good way! Her characters are complex and interesting. Their relationships with one another are thought provoking and have just enough suspense to keep one on the edge of her seat.
Barr's easy, matter of fact knowledge about the world of BDSM is refreshingly realistic for one who has delved into that lifestyle. The world of kink that Barr describes is inviting and approachable with characters who also are real and not just part of her scenery.
I listened to this book through Audible and Hollie Jackson did a great job narrating. She has a personable voice which is very clear and easy on the ears. She was able to add personality to the characters as she portrayed them in dialogue.
Overall, I would highly recommend Expired Listings as a mystery, and also as a novel with bits of kinky eroticism, humor and a beautifully woven story with which many can relate.
What;s next, Ms. Barr?

YOU WILL NEVER FORGET THIS STORY LINE
Shock, Amazed, Enthralled
The shock of the opening part of the story.
Are Real Estate Agents really safe selling homes?????
The beginning of the story made me sit down in shock. Wow then the story flowed. There were some Kinky BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, sadism, Masochism) in the first third of the book then it spiralled wonderfully with clues to who was murdering the local Realtors one after the other after the other. Who would be next to be found murdered.
I enjoyed listening to this audio. I felt quite close to Dana the lead character I really want to help sort her out. Fast pace, intriguing and completely unpredictable definitely a must listen.
