Many thanks to Wendy, Gina, and Cheryl and Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
The story had a deadly premise, an Angel who helped the elderly at the nursing home to hasten their deaths. Ruth, the VP of Operations at Silent Acres soon realized that the deaths were not normal. She called in Zach, her abrasive neighbor and retired detective. Together they investigated.
My first book by Catharine Riggs, I was quite enthralled by the story, having read such medical thrillers before. Where this book varied were in characters. I liked that the author took an out of the normal way to write them.
They were headstrong, blunt, didn’t like each other, shared a corrosive secret. Both came across as selfish initially till they grew on me. As the pages turned, the layers in the characters were revealed. I liked the strength in writing them.
The story was, at the roots, a murder mystery. And it didn’t disappoint with its suspense. I could guess at the Angel, but I left the thought there and read the book pure for the pleasure of it. The investigation took its turns, as they normally do.
My niggles too made its appearance. The prose could have been sharper, and ending way better.
Overall, it was fun to start the day with a murder mystery. A good breakfast read!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

That must be one enjoyable breakfast! 💪
I am a pure vegetarian but I love blood and murder in my reads during breakfast…. And lunch and tea and dinner and Midnight reads… OK all the time 😂😂😂
Sounds decent. I see it’s her second book though. Did that affect your reading of this book at all? By the way, how come you don’t have a star rating for this one? 😮 Great review, Shalini! 😀
Hahaha 😂 😂 I didn’t know it was book 2… I read and kept on reading ❤️❤️
Glad you enjoyed despite the lukewarm ending. Great review, Shalini💜
Thank you so much Jonetta ❤️
I really enjoyed this book !
I know. Thank you
Few people I know want to start the day with bloody murder, why I love you so much! XOXO 😉
Hahaha I am more the Kill Bill types than the hearts and 💘 cupid 😂😂
I read ‘deadly penis’ instead of ‘deadly premise’ so I was confused xD
I enjoy medical thrillers, but usually can’t read them for breakfast!! Great review! x
Hahaha for a second I wondered if I had made this dreadful typo😂😂
Thank you so much ❤️
Autopsy and graphic details sometimes are difficult rarely. Graphic violence is sometimes a no-no
🤣🤣🤣 That would have been fun!
Yeah, I made the mistake to start graphic books at breakfast… 😱
Hahaha yeah me too… 😂 😍
Fab review! I definitely like the sound of this story.
It was a fun book. Thank you so much ❤️
