Publisher's Summary

As a colleague of deputy coroner Mattie Winston, social worker Clothilde "Hildy" Schneider is no stranger to unsolved murders at Sorenson General Hospital. Except this time, it's up to her to crack the case....   

Motivated by her own difficult past, Hildy has an unparalleled commitment to supporting troubled clients through grief and addiction in Sorenson, Wisconsin. But when a distraught group therapy member reveals disturbing details about her late son's potential murder, Hildy goes from dedicated mental health professional to in-over-her-head amateur sleuth....   

Alongside her loyal therapy Golden Retriever, Hildy stumbles through incriminating clues - and an unlikely partnership with Detective Bob Richmond, the irresistibly headstrong cop who shares her passion for helping others. With signs of foul play surfacing all over town, can Hildy and Detective Richmond pinpoint the deadly traits of a sharp-witted killer before another seat gets filled at grief therapy?

A Great Listen

An intriguing story about a social worker who gets herself involved in a murder mystery. The story is very well written, interesting and believable characters, and a great plot with just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. The narration by Marnye Young is incredible, and she pulls you into the story so much, you'll be left wanting more when the book is finished.

A highly recommended listen. I look forward to more in this series.

Narration and story bland

I’m a big fan of Ryan’s Mattie Winston series, but this spinoff lacks the color and humor of the original. Even the story telling is awkward and clunky at times. Don’t bother.

Great Debut

I wasn't sure I was going to like this book . The people in the support group are annoying, but I like Hildy. She's ifar from perfect and is also ntellegent and interesting. I'm also glad to see more of Bob's character. They make a good couple and a formidable team. I look forward to reading more books with these two characters.

not what I expected

i didn't hate it but I felt tricked. I was hoping this was more about the dog. The dog was not only on the cover but mentioned specifacly in the description which led me to think he was a big part of the story. I was vert disappointed to learn he wasn't even much of a side character.
