Summary

Summoned from her promising surgical career first to her estranged father's bedside and then to his post as medical examiner when his small town needs urgent help with a suspicious death, Emily Hartford discovers home is where the bodies are in this pitch-perfect mystery debut.

Recently engaged and deeply ensconced in her third year of surgical residency in Chicago, Emily Hartford gets a shock when she is called home to Freeport, Michigan, the small town she fled a decade ago after the death of her mother. Her estranged father, the local medical examiner, has had a massive heart attack, and Emily is needed urgently to help with his recovery.

Not sure what to expect, Emily races home, blowing the only stoplight at the center of town and getting pulled over by her former high school love, now sheriff, Nick Larson. At the hospital, she finds her father in near total denial of the seriousness of his condition. He insists that the best thing Emily can do to help him is to take on the autopsy of a senator's teen daughter whose sudden, unexplained death has just rocked the sleepy town.

Reluctantly agreeing to help her father and Nick, Emily gets down to work, only to discover that the girl was murdered. The autopsy reminds her of her many hours in the morgue with her father when she was a young teen - a time which inspired her love of medicine. Before she knows it, she is pulled deeper into the case and closer to her father and to Nick - much to the dismay of her big-city fiance.

When a threat is made to Emily herself, she must race to catch the killer before he strikes again.

The Coroner, expertly written and sharply plotted, is perfect for fans of Patricia Cornwell and Julia Spencer Fleming.

Poor Narration and Ending!

Over all the story was good but the narrator made it very difficult to stick with. Every sentence sounded sad and miserable, even descriptions of a house or clothing! I stayed with it as I wanted to know the conclusion and then it ended abruptly, with ends untied that would have only taken another short chapter to bring together! I am pleased I did not use up a credit on it!

Really good.

This is a slow starter but then gathers speed and becomes a really good listen.

Frustrating

I enjoyed the storyline and the relationship between Nick and Emily, but I was disappointed that it just seemed to end without any real conclusion on her relationship with her father or with Nick

Really enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book and I’m definitely going to read the next one. It’s left with a big cliff hanger and I need to know more :D

Easy listening

Enjoyed the book but wouldn’t rush back. Having started it I wanted to finish it but felt the storyline let it down.
