 “I could hear breathing on the line and then a man said real low, ‘Did you get my little present?’ He sounded so scary.”
“I said, ‘What present?’ And he didn’t say anything for a minute. Then he laughed and said, ‘This is Heather, isn’t it?’ I was too scared to answer but he knew who I was.”
Jan caught her breath and pulled Heather to her, hugging her tight . . .

My review:  Death is Always a Resident by Lorraine Jefferey

31/2 STARS

Cozy mystery.  Likeable characters, lots of drama.  Clean read.  The first novel by Lorraine Jefferey.

Jan Myers is a widow with a teenage daughter Heather.  Jan has her dream job as a director of Forest Hills Skilled Nursing Facility for the last 8 months.  The job also comes with a small cottage for her and Heather.

Heather is a 15 year old teen who was not happy with her new home and school.

Packard Nickle died from a heart attack at age 85.  His son Paul had a private autopsy done on his father.  He thinks his father has been poisoned. Packard was a unhappy man who made enemies with his business life and personal life.

The setting for most of the book is  Forest Hills Skilled Nursing Facility in Columbus Ohio. A nursing home with 31 guests.

The ending worked but I wanted more of it.  Maybe there will be future books.

I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishing and in return agreed to give a honest review of Death is Always a Resident.
