Letty Whittaker, a colleague of Regina's, is the narrator of this "humorous mystery". Designated "professional executor" in Regina's will, Letty is now responsible for Regina's caseload, both at the clinic where they both worked, and at the women's shelter where Regina volunteered. She's not pleased, but very soon she finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery.
I inadvertently started reading this book before realizing it was Book 2 of a five book series subtitled "Suspense with a Dash of Humor". Unfortunately, I hadn't read Book 1, so was in the dark every time something was mentioned that happened prior. And, believe me, there must have been a lot that happened. Even so, I found the book mildly humorous, and now I am going back and reading Book 1. This book is worth three and a half stars in my mind. I'm rounding up because I seldom read series books <i>or</I> "humorous mysteries", but maybe I've changed my ways...
Letty must deal with professional jealousy, people with secrets, angry husbands, and scary truths while she tries to honor her co-worker’s final wishes. I like that Letty is flawed, but realizes it and keeps trying to improve. I learned things I didn’t know from this book, like that therapists have “professional wills,” and how a domestic violence shelter operates.
This is a well-written series with complex, multi-dimensional characters (even the supporting ones), and complicated but riveting plots. The AA stuff is, as usual, spot-on. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and was sad when it ended. Sad enough that I immediately bought books three and four in the series. I’m having to hold myself back from binge reading.
Here is a book that takes place in Northern Wisconsin. That gives behind the curtain dynamics between real people at a clinic and at a shelter for abused women. The narrator is a former alcoholic trying to come to terms with the second and third steps of that program. The future is here. Writing is here and now.
There are real politics and tension. I felt I got to know and appreciate an over-worked (and over-stressed) staff, the psychology of why an abused woman goes back to her painful relationship. Plus there are some scenes that took me into trailer parks and barns I have often driven past and wondered about. Plus there’s a very moving comparison of the narrator as a child to the boy hidden in stacks of hay. Through this book I have come to more fully understand the abused, alcoholics, those who try to help them and how difficult this all is.
This is the kind of book I want to review. This is the kind of book you should read.
