#HeneryPress #NetGalley I really enjoyed this book. I love detective mysteries but this one was a little bit different being set in a small American town with a Chief of Police rather than in a big city. I also liked the fact that the main character was not really a detective but a paramedic but being in a small town roles overlap. I loved Zoe's relationship with Pete and they way they worked together to solve the crime. Plenty of twists and turns with an ending that I didn't figure out in advan [...]

This is a nice cozy with a really good mystery. I love the town and its people! ARC netgalley
A good mystery light on violence and intrigue but a well defined plot and characters that made sense. I liked that, for once, a person with a severe concussion actually had some impairment instead of running out of the hospital taking down a bad guy
