"The funniest deputy coroner to cut up a corpse since, well, ever." --Laura Levine

Sorenson, Wisconsin's deputy coroner Mattie Winston is back on the job. . .in a nursing home examining the body of Bernie Chase--the now former president of the Twilight Home's board of directors--who is covered in a powder used to turn liquids to solids. The home's residents are certain Bernie was offing the patients who cost him too much. . .and the patient that found him can't remember a thing.

Between her ongoing tug of war with Detective Hurley, fulfilling her new job requirement of seeing a shrink, and wrangling with the Twilight Home's board of directors, Mattie's got her scrubbed hands full. She'll need all of her outside-the-box forensic skills to crack a case that's turning out to be stranger--and more dangerous--than anything she's seen before!

Please tell me there is more books in this series. I felt like things were left hanging in this book and I really want Mattie to find a way to be with the man she loves. Give us more.

This series featuring Mattie Winston, deputy coroner (once a nurse), set in Wisconsin, is fun and enjoyable. I enjoy the mix of medical and murder details and the quirky characters. If you haven't read any of this series yet, start at the beginning because the story and the characters' relationships definitely develop over the books in the series.
