…the latest exploits of deputy coroner Mattie Winston? In Annelise Ryan’s Frozen Stiff*, the murder of an ex-girlfriend of her boyfriend, hunky Steve Hurley, has Mattie up to her eyeballs in intrigue. Did Steve really kill his ex or is he being framed?
Mattie needs to sort this out fast because her feelings for Steve are escalating, and her ex-hubby, who refuses to sign the divorce papers, is on the line. A big fire, a convict with a huge grudge against Steve, the fact that Mattie drives a hearse as a personal car, and her dog Hoover make this a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving read. The revelation of Mattie’s full name is a fun episode near the end, which should lead into book number four.
