As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder - especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush. As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again.

I looked forward to continuing this series but the narration made it really hard to get through. Characters would have bad country hick accents or British where it didn’t even call for it. Glad I finally finished it so I can go on to the next one with a different narrator.

When financial problems force her family to sell their London home, a strange solicitor arrives with an astounding offer: the use of a distant manor house abandoned for 18 years. The Fosters journey to imposing Pembrooke Park and are startled to find it entombed as it was abruptly left.

Most girls dream of slipping into a magical gown, running off to an extravagant ball, and kissing a so-called prince. But when Grace Warren is invited to a black tie event and a handsome stranger steals a kiss from her, she considers it highway robbery. If she never sees the presumptuous low-life again, it will be too soon. Weeks later, when Seth Tuttle hobbles into her rehab clinic, Grace wants nothing more than to pawn him off on another therapist. Unfortunately, her wishes came true about as often as ACL tears heal themselves, and Grace finds herself helping a man who doesn’t even remember kissing her.

Not as much as a comedy as stated but good story about making good come out of bad. Like that it had a bonus romance in the background.
