Publisher's Summary

As the former governor's wife, Helen Binney is used to being in charge. So when illness and two pushy nieces force her to take on a visiting nurse, Helen uses every trick in the book to slip away from the annoying woman. Only someone must have disliked the nurse even more than Helen, because the woman's dead body shows up the next day in Helen's yard! Now it's up to Helen to prove that not only is she perfectly capable of taking care of herself, she's also perfectly capable of solving one cold-blooded murder. Between the nurse's shady past, an elusive "Remote Control Burglar", and an unlikely partnership with a handsome lawyer, Helen finds herself being drawn into the killer's carefully crafted web. The only question is, can Helen survive a little dose of death?

Creative murder mystery

I really enjoyed this book. I loved the creative detail of Helen's getting annoyed at not being suspected so deciding to demonstrate the possibility. I also really appreciated the way the main character suffers from lupus and is disabled by that but shows that with determination and using her contacts, she can do what is necessary. She also demonstrates that though her body may suffer, her mind is still sharp.

Lisa Valdini performs the narration of this book in an excellent manner. Each character’s voice suits her or him perfectly. I could see the upper class lawyer Tate versus the lower class driver Jack. I also could see how annoying Melissa must be.

This book is very well done.

Don't waste your time

I should have read the reviews more carefully. If I had I would have been warned about how unrealistic and time consuming this book is. It makes no sense and is full of contradictions. The lead character wants to be left alone but seeks out a murderer, making friends along the way. She is 45 and has given her nieces power of attorney over her finances and is constantly in a power struggle with them for control of her life. She finds a woman murdered in her yard and is angry that she is not considered a suspect. All of the characters are flat and not very likable and the story was drawn out and boring. Listening to this book was a complete waste of time.
