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. . .

    Congrats to Annelise on the new release! I bet her job as a RN helps the deputy coroner figure out things correctly. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I’ve started this series and love it, I still have some catching up to do. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Mattie sounds like a interesting character. I’ve thought a barbecue fork is a cool choice of weapon. As deputy coroner I would think being pregnant might be a problem if she has morning sickness. Thank you for your giveaway. I am looking forward to reading this book.
