I am an avid eclectic reader.
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.
I liked the plot of the story
Nothing. She is an excellent orator
I have really enjoyed several of Gwen Hunter's books but this one was a bit of a disappointment. Too much time was spent with chit chat and conversations that seemed like filler to make up for a lack of substance to the plot.
