Summary

Dr. Thornton isn't a murderer. He's just a grump with a body in his pool.

Maxwell Thornton isn’t really a people person, but that never mattered to him because he’d lived for his career. After losing a patient during an operation, he’s shaken and afraid to pick up the scalpel again. He resigns his position in the city and takes a job as sole GP in the isolated town of Rainy Dale, Texas, population 1,001. 

Rainy Dale is populated with eccentrics who test his patience and seem to think he’s not only there to treat their illnesses, but that he’s also there to hold their hand and be their therapist. When one of his most annoying patients ends up dead and floating in Maxwell’s pool, he has some explaining to do to the local sheriff.

Sheriff Royce Callum is intelligent, determined, and more attracted to the new doctor than he would like. He can’t imagine Maxwell is a murderer, but he also can’t exactly ignore a corpse in the sexy doctor’s pool.

absolutely incredible performance

listening to maxwell and Royce being brought to life was such a delightful feeling

I felt every part of the mystery being brought to life I felt like I was there alongside them and included in the journey

I'm looking forward to listening to more of this series and performance from matt Haynes

s c wynne's words and matt Haynes narration was breathtaking

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Having already read the books so far and fallen in love with Maxwell and Royce I couldn't wait to re-visit Rainy Dale and I'm so glad I got the chance to do so from a different perspective. I must admit that it took me a while to settle in to Matt's narration, probably because I had just finished another long series narrated so a change of voice was strange but after the first chapter I was very much on board.
This is a great starting point to a series which just keeps getting better as the characters become more rounded and 'real'.
Fun and easy to listen to I am looking forward to the next.

An easy listen

I thought the narrator did a good job with this scene setter for an ongoing series. I enjoyed listening to him and meeting the characters.

The story is straightforward - one mystery is solved and there is a cliffhanger to set up the next book which I am looking forward to.
