A fun book to listen to.

I have enjoyed this series. It is a good get-away-from-it-all book. In book four, the county coroner Anita Yarborough is wounded in a shoot-out and our protagonist Rhea Lynch M.D. is drafted as acting coroner. All Dr. Lynch does on the murder victim, John Pendergrass, is pronouncing him dead and then the body is transported to the medical examiner in the next county. Then a mass grave of young girls is discovered and Dr. Lynch is on the hunt for a serial killer. Oh no, not another story about a serial killer. I am sick to death of serial killers.

In her personal life Lynch ‘s boyfriend, police Captain Mark Stafford, calls off their relationship, but no fear, along comes Eli Cordell, an ex-military commando, as a new romantic interest. The question is which man does she end up with at the end of the book?

The book is well written and fast paced. There is lots of action in this book as compared to the prior book in the series. Hunter is a good storyteller and keeps my interest in the story. I enjoy the understated humor in the story.

Carol Hendrickson does a good job narrating the story. Carol is a voice over artist in three languages. She has narrated numerous audiobooks.

Wishing for more

I have enjoyed this story line, and would love to see more. Love the dimension of the southern life and the small town environment.
