She’s pursued the most dangerous news stories around the world. But can she survive going home?

Injured in a bombing, war correspondent Kate Tessler returns to her hometown in Arizona to recover. For the first time in her life, she's starting to feel her age of nearly fifty despite living like a teenager again: staying in her childhood bedroom with only a cat for company, trying to understand why her sister resents her so much, and running into people who still refer to her as Kitty. The hardest part? Seeing her once-sharp and witty mother stuck in an Alzheimer's unit.

When an old friend asks her to investigate suspicious deaths at the nursing home, Kate limps into action. Is a self-appointed "Angel of Mercy" killing patients to end their suffering? Are family members hastening their inheritance? Is an employee extorting money and removing the witnesses? Kate uses her journalism skills to track clues, but the puzzle pieces simply won’t fit.  

If Kate can't uncover the truth quickly, her mother could be next on the killer's list.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This is remarkably enjoyable start to a brand new cozy mystery series. Bock is a new author for me but I found the writing style to be great mix of people, events, and details that really create a fun read as we follow along. We meet Kate home on leave, thanks to an injury, from her career as a war correspondent. She almost feels like a kid again thanks to living in her childhood bedroom with only a cat for company. Her mother has Alzheimer's making it necessary for her to live in a nursing home. This makes it easy for an old friend to talk her into investigating some suspicious deaths at the very same home putting her mother possibly at risk. Thanks to her writing investigating skills she is quite good at figuring things out as she goes along taking the reader right along with her. Makes for quite the fun cozy read that is a great choice for fans of the genre or those wanting to try one. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
