Publisher's Summary

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!

    "Not a Great Mystery, But Enjoying Mattie's Life"

    I have become attached to Mattie and the characters in this series, so my standards aren't super high with the mysteries. However, this was definitely not a favorite for a couple of reasons. The mystery was set in a nursing home and I don't really care for the portrayal of old folks in this book. They are mostly played crudely and for laughs. I have never found the character of the sex starved old lady who is supposed to be funny/repulsive to be amusing. I gather plenty of people do find that funny since this author certainly isn't the only one to put in such characters for humor. It seems especially off when they are also trying to make statements about the value of life. That wasn't a big deal though. What I found weak about the mystery was that no one ever solves it. They investigate but really nothing gets accomplished until the killer basically comes forward. I prefer my detectives to actually solve the mystery not just work on it until it blows up in their face. Still, I enjoyed Mattie and Hurley. I was surprised by how quickly they fell back in together after the cliffhanger ending of the last book. Although there are some things left up in the end at the end of this one, Mattie seems in a better place in her life than usual. I wish the next one was available on Audible!

    "Believable characters"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I really like the series


    What three words best describe Jorjeana Marie’s voice?

    good variation of character voices.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator needs to work on her pronunciation of Medical terminology and Acronyms

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Starting to tire"

    Light, and easy listen. Didn't seem to hold my attention as the earlier installments did. Hopefully the series isn't tiring out.

    "Love this series!"

    I highly recommend this series. It is highly entertaining with good mystery. The narrator was much better in this book. Not as nasal when she read. I feel like the main character has become a friend and can't wait to see what happens next. It is worth a credit.

    "Not at all board stiff, great story."
    What did you love best about Board Stiff?

    Leads where I thought the story line could go, and leaves an opening for the next book, which I hope is coming.


    Have you listened to any of Jorjeana Marie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Always does a great job of getting into character


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh, the old folks and their fake weed.
