Deputy coroner Mattie Winston knows a thing or two about dead bodies. That's why she's on the case of Derrick Ames, a high school math teacher stabbed to death with a barbecue fork straight to the heart. Sure, she's turned up some motives and a few suspects, but nothing adds up. Especially when the evidence points to Ames's teenage son. Newly pregnant Mattie can't believe it, even as her own long-estranged father may be following her. But one thing's certain, she'd better start figuring things out fast, or a deadly perpetrator could be subtracting two more victims from the population of Sorenson, Wisconsin...

I like the writing style of this book, but I thought that the mystery tale and resolution were random and tenuous at best. The account of the pregnancy in this book would suggest that the author has never experienced one first hand. In fact, I was stumped to find out that the author was a nurse, given the account.

Still moderately entertaining.
