killer There have been very few times that I have not been able to finish a book I pride myself on finishing what I start But this oneI ended up quickly scanning 3 4 of the way through It was just so insane, and not in a good way.SPOILER ALERTI knew I was going to have problems right off the bat There is no way none that a police detective would allow a murder suspect s wife be involved in any part of the investigation But here is Mattie, the murder suspect s wife, investigating the murd There have been very few times that I have not been able to finish a book I pride myself on finishing

way none that a police detective would allow a murder suspect s wife be involved in any part of the investigation But here is Mattie, the murder suspect s wife, investigating the murder, talking to suspects, following up leads, even performing an autopsy on a victim related to the case Seriously Do some research.And then the hot cold, hot cold relationship between Mattie and Steve is ridiculous Mattie s cat was muchbelievable that this couple.I just don t think a lot of thought went into the police procedure of this book I would have understood itif Mattie was asked to stay away until a suspect was finally arrested, and she decided to secretly investigate on her own AnywayI just felt it was a waste of time Dollycas s ThoughtsI am late to the party on this series and am kicking myself.Dr David Winston cheated on his wife R.N Mattie Winston and she has moved out of their house and quit her job She caught him and R.N Karen Owenby getting very cozy with each other in an

instead live ones, but she is d Dollycas s ThoughtsI am late to the party on this series and am kicking myself.Dr David Winston cheated on his wife R.N Mattie Winston and she has moved out of their house and quit her job She caught him and R.N Karen Owenby getting very cozy with each other in an operating room An operating room she worked in with her husband Her friend Izzy offers her a roof over her head and a job as his new deputy coroner It will take some getting used to, dead patients instead live ones, but she is determined to make it on her own.Nervous about her first homicide, which Izzy pulled her out of bed for, she is positively floored when the body is none other than R.N Karen Owenby The woman messing around with her husband and the woman she saw him have an argument with not too many hours ago She also meets Detective Steve Hurley, who is a definite distraction for Mattie.So she has 2 men on her mind, David couldn t have killed Karen, could he and the handsome detective she would like to get to know better She also is meeting her new coworkers and her new job She may be in the killer s sights too, hopefully she won t end up being the next stiff in the morgue.I loved this story and I loved Mattie Her life gets turned upside down, but she picks herself up, dusts herself off and gets on with her life With a little help from her friends she carries on, even overstepping the requirements of her new job to do a little sleuthing on her own Izzy and his partner play key roles and they are wonderfully written I could almost feel the heat between Mattie and Steve burning up the pages This is going to be an interesting relationship.The plot was complex with clever twists I followed each clue right along with Mattie and figured it out mere moments before she did.The dialogue between the characters was so realistic and the situations were as well I enjoy that this series is set not too far from where I reside The local references warmed by heart.What I did not expect were the laugh out loud funny moments, there were quite a few I even had my own spit take Do not read this story and drink at the same time Luckily my Kindle survived the experience.I may have come late to this series but I hope to catch up quickly I can t wait to dive into Scared Stiff It is set at Halloween, so I should have read it last month, but I sure am not going to wait for next year You may be seeing my review next week Story Goodpretty good writing and an okay plot Liked the main character and her job detective work made sense and worked well in the story Things I didn t like Too much sexual innuendo and euphemisms I m not 16adults at least the ones I know aren t generally that crass And she kept referring to being gay as a lifestyle Why It s not like an active lifestyle or the Atkins lifestyle It s just who they are That s just a pet peeve of mine.Will a read the second Probably. An excellent debut cozy Though, there are many elements in this mystery that you wouldn t normally find in a cozy I really enjoyed this one A good mystery with many elements Quirky characters Good relationships A real page turner.
