I love being able to support new authors, as hopefully I will be a published author myself someday. So when Lorraine Jeffery contacted me asking if I would review her new book Death is Always a Resident, I was happy oblige.
Jan Myers has dedicated her career to helping the elderly. But after one of the elderly residents under her care mysteriously dies, Jan’s career, her daughter, and everything she loves is suddenly in jeopardy.
It’s up to Jan to piece together the clues and find out what happened before it’s too late!
This cozy mystery is a perfectly thrilling read. With shocking twists and romantic hints, it’s sure to keep you guessing till the very end.
It took me a few chapters to get into the book, but once I was in I was hooked. I love that halfway through the book, I was still clueless as to who could have done it and what exactly happened. The clues slowly began to unfold all while the characters developed.
I also really like the unique setting and storyline of this mystery. It really got me thinking about the care of the elderly in general and made me grateful for those who do care and try and make a difference. The book also had a very real feel to the entire thing, was never over the top.
I liked the sub-plots of the story and the mother/daughter relationship. It felt very real and genuine, with the struggles and problems that often accompany the teen years. This is a quick read and also what I call a clean book, free of language and graphic imagery. This would be a great summer read.
