HOA Wire by Kenneth Eade is a fast paced courtroom drama. Barbara Dennesmore is the president of the Orange Grove Homeowners Association and takes great delight in issuing citations for the wrong color paint or an overgrown lawn. Nobody likes her and, on her birthday, she receives a deadly gift – deadly enough to kill her. Everyone had a motive but suspicion falls on Nancy Hoskins who has just won a case against the HOA. Evidence is found on her property that leaves the police no option but to charge her with murder. Enter Brent Marks, hotshot lawyer with more than 20 years’ experience. As the case moves forward, Brent hires a PI to try to uncover who the real murderer is, believing with all his heart that his client is innocent. Did Nancy kill the president? And what is going on in Orange Grove that casts doubt over everything?
HOA Wire by Kenneth Eade was a very good book, written by a lawyer. A combination of courtroom drama and crime, it’s full of twists and turns and a very surprising ending. It’s an intriguing story, going in a different direction at every corner, and I found it was very easy to understand. Mr. Eade has written a winning novel here, the third in the Brent Marks series. I also very much appreciated the explanation at the end of the story on the legal aspect of Home Owners Associations as it made things in the story much clearer. I would like to read the other two books in the series as well and I hope that there is more to come!
