I received this book courtesy of Ms. Munro for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: Toni Day is driving her mother and step-father home from the airport. When they witness a car drive into the canal, Toni pulls over to help, to no avail. Later on, she is called in to perform the autopsy on the driver. Surprise! She isn’t dead…yet.
Story Telling: Ms. Munro has some strong characters. Her story was well written.
Likes: Toni and her family were fun. She may have had issues with Beulah, but she was determined to do her job without letting her feelings get in the way.
Dislikes: I had a hard time reading past the medical terms. I think you need to have some doctorate in order to even pronounce them. It’s one of those books that makes it a pain to read out loud. The character that I liked the least was Brenda. In second place was Carole.
Favorite Character: My favorite character was Nigel. Retired and cancer-stricken, he still had to use his police knowledge. He also had a great sense of humor.
Favorite Quote: My favorite quote was one of Ms. Munro’s opening quotes. “Defer not ‘til tomorrow to be wise, Tomorrow’s sun to thee may never rise.” William Congreve.
Favorite Scene: My favorite part was when Toni managed to make Clark Dane, counsel for Brenda and Mortimer Duke, sick. A close second was her showdown with the antagonist.
Conclusion: This was an excellent book. Once we got past the medical terms, it was a quick and fun read. I hope you enjoy it. After all, it made my library.
