Kurzbeschreibung

Mitzy Neuhaus is the top selling Realtor in Portland, but even her office is dead in this economy. Foreclosed is the word no homeowner wants to hear and Mitzy is determined to save the incredible mansion on her street from that fate. But with the homeowner desperate to keep Mitzy away from his property and Alonzo, the dangerously hot rival investor trying to snatch it out from under her, Mitzy knows she has to work fast, or the economy won’t be the only thing dead…

Praise for the Mitzy Neuhaus Mysteries

A fun cozy mystery. The lead character, Mitzy Neuhause, is what one would get if Legally Blond were about real estate. She is well-intentioned, beautiful, slightly clueless, and really, really good at what she does - which is selling homes in Portland, Oregon.

The fun begins when she butts heads with a local commercial property real estate agent over a stunning and mysterious Victioran mansion.
The next thing you know Russian royal jewels are being discussed and the Russian mob may, or may not, be involved. Mitzy needs to keep her faith, her head, and her big, blonde, 80's hair in place in order to bring everything to a happy ending.—Jane Wells, author of Glitter in the Sun

Foreclosed is a thoroughly entertaining and superbly plotted debut novel from Traci Hilton. The book approaches the genre of mystery from an unusual but extremely engaging setting: the world of real estate.

And alongside the book's delightful protagonist Mitzy Neuhaus, the reader loses himself in the grandeur and enigmatic qualities of the stunning mansion that the author so authoritatively conveys.

The chemistry between Alonzo and Mitzy is apparent from their first encounter and adds a layer of tantalizing romance to the book; their chemistry is electric and their battle of wills really brings the book's main plot to life.

But it is Mitzy who deserves the greatest plaudits. She is an emotionally engaging character with an incredible amount of depth; resourceful, polite, entrepreneurial and caring, she is the book's main attraction and could quite easily sustain a lengthy series of mysteries that the book's many readers would enjoy.

Finally, the author's writing must receive its deserved praise. Often with light reads such as Foreclosed, the writing can be suspect. But Traci Hilton displays effortless control and command of language. A highly recommended read. –A. S. Anand author 2032

4.0 von 5 Sternen Maklerin mit detektivischen Spürsinn 18. April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
2008 ist Mitzy Neuhaus eine erfolgreiche Maklerin, allerdings verkauft sie zur Zeit rein gar nichts, da die Welt sich in der Finanzkrise befindet.

Mitzy ist zwar im Radio zu hören und auch eine auffällige Erscheinung (pinkfarbener Blazer mit dicken Schulterpolstern :-). Doch wie alle anderen muss auch sie diese Krisenzeit irgendwie meistern. Zufällig bekommt sie Wind davon, dass ein viktorianisches Haus in die Zwangsversteigerung gehen soll. Daher auch der Name des Buches "Foreclosed" was im amerikanischen für Zwangsversteigerung von Immobilien steht.

Da Mitzy weiß, dass die Arbeiter, die die Küche renoviert haben, nicht bezahlt wurden, versucht sie sich den Auftrag das Haus zu verkaufen unter den Nagel zu reißen. Denn geht das Haus nach amerikanischen Recht vor der Zwangsversteigerung oder dem "Short-Sale" durch einen normalen Immobilienverkauf in andere Hände über, werden mit dem Verkaufsgewinn die Handwerker bezahlt. Wird das Haus jedoch nur in "Short Sale" oder im "Foreclosure" verkauft, bekommt nur die Bank, die die Immobilie beliehen hat, ihr Geld und die Handwerker gehen leer aus.

Um zu verhindern, dass ihre Freunde und ihre eigenen Leute ohne Geld und Arbeit dastehen, muss Mitzy also schnellstmöglichst einen Käufer für das Haus besorgen.

Zumal ihr Ex-Freund sie gerne in der TV-Serie "House Hunters" hätte, wo es um junge Paare geht, die ihr erstes gemeinsames Haus suchen. Leider entpuppt sich eine andere Maklerin, die ein Päarchen für eben dieses Haus an der Angel hat, als Fake genau wie das dazugehörige Päarchen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Foreclosed was a fun read! 4. November 2010
Von Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was recommended by several friends so I checked it out and am glad I did so. The plot revolves around Mitzy Neuhaus, Portland's best known realtor, discovering that a Victorian dream house is going into foreclosure. Mitzy knows she is the best realtor to bring the right clientele to this house. She also realizes that a sale like this will really help make a name for herself in the upper crust of Portland society. The mystery revolves around who owns the house and the disappearance of valuable items within the house. Of course, Mitzy being industrious as she is, takes matters into her own hands to hunt down this individual and information. It was a great mystery with interesting characters that I thoroughly enjoyed! I loved all the details that went into describing places and characters so I felt invested in the story. I read the story quickly and had a hard time putting it down at night.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Foreclosed--- a clean Mystery 24. März 2010
Von C. Timmerman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an exciting book. If you are looking for a Clean mystery... This is it. I enjoyed it so much. There are a lot of mysteries out there that contain lots of bad words and such. I was thrilled about this book. I was so enthralled by Mitzy that I was very concerned about what happened to her. Mitzy is a Real Estate Agent who finds an old Victorian house that is being foreclosed by the bank. She wants to find the people who are destroying this houses' worth... A very great adventure.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Spell Check Is Not an Editor. 2. September 2012
Von RuthAlice - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am so glad I picked this book up during a promotion so that I didn't spend a lot of money on it. I would have quit reading it after the second paragraph when the heroine was thinking because the real estate situation needed thought or the third paragraph where she walked at a contemplative pace and contemplated. Such clumsy redundancies gave me pause, but I decided to persevere because it is set in Portland. I like supporting local authors and love reading and identifying places as I read.

Foreclosed quickly tipped from merely being a poorly written book to being "so bad it's good." You know the sort of book I mean, the ones that fill you with schadenfreude and make you guffaw when there are moments of bizarre self-revelation. There is a unique pleasure in reading a memorably bad book. Not all bad books are enjoyable, but books that combine bad writing with a certain sort of inane shallowness can be hysterically funny.

To take one example, our intrepid heroine and her brother both give voice to the author's disdain for the Listening Project - a Portland effort to expand the voices that get heard by people in government beyond the usual cliques of donors and developers. So Mitzy gets to voice her contempt and ridicule for the idea that politicians would listen to the public at any time other than Election Day. Her brother even gets to make fun of the idea of listening to marginalized citizens - instead of worthy conservative lawyers like him. In fact, he has the brilliant idea of joining the "foundation" (as the author clumsily tries to fictionalize the project) in order to subvert the influence of the poor and marginalized others who are undeserving of full participation in civic life, a realm the author clearly believes only belongs to those of wealth and property. I am surprised she did not have her brother drafting an initiative to reinstate a poll tax.

Another side-splitting trope in this simple mystery is that liberals are not only rude, inexplicably unkind, but also "rat-faced" and ugly. The author uses conservative less as a description of a political philosophy and more as a synonym for good and good-looking. I know Rush Limbaugh tries to imply that liberal = evil and conservative = good, but most Americans realize that is merely propaganda and don't internalize that sort of shallow reasoning. And only a very select few ascribe it to appearance.

There are so many errors in the book that if I tried to list them, I would exhaust myself. Many are the result of using Spell Check as an editor instead of using a brain. Examples include using peak for peek and loosing for losing. Frankly, the latter is one of my pet peeves. It irritated me more than the errors of fact such as using racist for xenophobic, the wildly absurd post-burglary CSI operation, or the errors in logic that kept our plucky realtor acting like a silly ditz rather than the real estate "mogul" that she claims to be. Actually, having the character think of herself as a real estate "mogul" cracked me up and that was in the first paragraph. If she's a mogul, it's only on the bunny slope.

This is not the worst book I have ever read. We were not treated to the spectacle of a widower saying two minutes after his much-loved wife was murdered, "oh well, she had cancer." as in Inside Passage to Alaska or have the hero hiding from the "cannons of the church in their scarlet robes" in the hotel lobby as in another, the title of which escapes me at the moment. It's only the third worst book I have ever read, but like those other two, it was a book that was delightfully bad and I am sure such books are a great service. They must encourage so many would-be writers who can read them and know that if this can get published, there's hope for everyone.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Foreclosed - as the book should have been 14. Mai 2013
Von A Very Tough Critic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
When I search for a book, especially for Kindle, I usually read the description of the book and then check out the reviews. If the good reviews outweigh the bad, I will try the book. The one review that I really wish I had paid attention to was the one written by RuthAlice. Boy, did she hit the nail on the head. "Spell check is not an editor." The book had a so-so story line, one that could be tolerated for mild entertainment(?)as it is. But, the drawback to the book was that you had to be your own editor to make the story make sense. Too many words put in where it did not make sense, or words left out so that the sense of the meaning was lost. Wrong spelling of words like using the wrong usage of to, too, or two as an example. I am left wondering if those that gave a five star review read the same book I did. I know the author has other books out and I am only hoping that she had an editor go over the book before she published them. I know for myself I will not be getting the other books. If I wanted to be an editor, I would apply for that job somewhere. I'd rather get paid for editing a book than to edit a book as I read it for my own enjoyment. This is definitely not a book that I would recommend to anyone that has a "thing" about proper spelling and syntax. Thank goodness this was one that I got for free as it would have been a waste of money.

By the way... is Amazon offering a position to edit books? :-)
