READER REVIEW: "Valerie and Kit are witty and entertaining characters constantly on the move. This is a well-written mystery that reads along at a bright and cheerful pace with a surprisingly dark twist at the end." --Alle Wells

This first book in The Val & Kit Mystery Series introduces Realtor Valerie Pankowski and her best friend since childhood, Kit James. Val, who has just signed her divorce papers and a lease on a new apartment, receives a call from a prospective client, Mavis Woodstock (a vaguely familiar name). Mavis insists she has to sell her house as quickly as possible, but then doesn't keep her scheduled appointment. Kit, whose glamour belies her bold and often brash ways, remembers Mavis from their school days, an unattractive girl who was ignored when she was lucky, ridiculed when she was not. She also remembers Mavis being the only daughter in a large family that was as frugal as it was wealthy. When Val and Kit cannot locate Mavis, they begin an investigation, encountering along the way a little romance, a lot of deception, and more than one unsavory character. Val & Kit and their shenanigans can also be found in No. 2 and No. 3 of The Val & Kit Mystery Series, THE MURDER OF SUSAN REED and DEATH IN DOOR COUNTY.
Rosalind Burgess and Patricia Obermeier Neuman, aka Roz and Patty, met in Minneapolis through mutual friend Lee (a REAL character, in the best sense of the word).
Now a proud and patriotic U.S. citizen and Texan, Roz grew up in London and currently calls Houston home. She has also lived in Germany, Iowa, and Minnesota. When not writing, she works in the airline industry.
Patty spent her childhood and early adulthood moving around the Midwest (Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana), first as a trailing child and then as a trailing spouse (inspiring her first published book, MOVING: THE WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & HOW OF IT). A former reporter and editor, Patty lives with her husband in Door County, Wisconsin. They have three children and twelve grandchildren.
With three books in The Val & Kit Mystery Series, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MAVIS WOODSTOCK, THE MURDER OF SUSAN REED, and DEATH IN DOOR COUNTY now published, Roz and Patty -- along with characters Val and Kit -- have another mystery up their sleeves (and on their computers). All four women agree that friendship, humor and love are as compelling as solving murders.
