Suture Self | [Mary Daheim]

Suture Self

Mary Daheim's wonderful world of Hillside Manor is zany, engrossing, and positively addicting! In Suture Self, Judith McMonigle Flynn is scheduled for a hip replacement. Instead of looking ahead to her new mobility, she's worried. "Routine surgery" recently cost a local actress and a star baseball pitcher their lives. Though Judith smells malice, she successfully survives her operation - but another patient isn't so lucky.

Publisher's Summary

Mary Daheim's wonderful world of Hillside Manor is zany, engrossing, and positively addicting!

In Suture Self, Judith McMonigle Flynn is scheduled for a hip replacement. Instead of looking ahead to her new mobility, she's worried. "Routine surgery" recently cost a local actress and a star baseball pitcher their lives. Though Judith smells malice, she successfully survives her operation - but another patient isn't so lucky.

Stuck in this chamber of Hippocratic horrors, Judith feels compelled to get to the bottom of what could be the worst malpractice case ever recorded...or perhaps something much more sinister. The worst diagnosis of all is the one that suggests Judith's curiosity is terminal...and that a killer is saving a last lethal dose of medicine for her.

    "Radical personality changes"

    I really enjoyed the first half of this book. The quirky, humorous main characters, 2 cousins, were very enjoyable. Unfortunately, about halfway through, the personalities of these 2 women completely changed. I hoped it was just a plot twist. But unfortunately it wasn't. Inexplicably the 2 feisty women suddenly became passive, clueless, and uninteresting.

    "A great mystery - not a good reader"
    If you could sum up Suture Self in three words, what would they be?

    Fun. Dangerous. Entertaining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Suture Self?

    When Judith and Rene realize what's going on at the hospital.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A lot. I enjoyed the previous book I listened to of Mary Daheim, but it was a different narrator. This narrator's voices were not good. The main character's husband who supposedly lives in the Pacfic Northwest, sounded like George W. Bush. I won't buy one she reads again.


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

    As usual with the B&B series, it was entertaining, dangerous and fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope you put more of the B&B series on audible, but please use a different narrator. Everyone sounded like a man with a hoarse throat.
