Publisher's Summary

Deputy coroner Mattie Winston knows a thing or two about dead bodies. That's why she's on the case of Derrick Ames, a high school math teacher stabbed to death with a barbecue fork straight to the heart. Sure, she's turned up some motives and a few suspects, but nothing adds up. Especially when the evidence points to Ames's teenage son. Newly pregnant Mattie can't believe it, even as her own long-estranged father may be following her. But one thing's certain: she'd better start figuring things out fast, or a deadly perpetrator could be subtracting two more victims from the population of Sorenson, Wisconsin.

Not the best in the series....

I'm not sure I like the author's choice of flash back for this character. This installment didn't keep me as riveted as previous books.

Different Format, But Still Interested in Mattie

I thought this book moved slower than the previous ones. I also didn't like the format all that much. The bulk of the book is told as Mattie tells her story to her shrink. The main problem I found with this approach was that instead of seeing the things happen, you are given a higher level spoiler, then told the story. And I mean big things are blown this way. We should see if Hurley is going to propose, not be told if he will. Things like that. Also the pregnant Mattie is more jealous and whiny than usual. Her shrink is paid to hear her repeatedly stress about whether her and Hurley "have what it takes" or not, but I wasn't. Not to imply I didn't enjoy the book, I continue to be interested in Mattie and Hurley and I did enjoy the book. But even the mysteries in this one take a back seat to Mattie's psych issues. We end at a good place for Mattie though and not without enough drama left that the series could continue.
