Marjory Ellen Mosen was not the first and will not be the last.

Stage IV cancer victims are being killed inside their trusted care facilities. Because rural communities keep their secrets, even murders, no one knows a serial killer is active in the farmland utopia.

Carin Trimble is Marble Grove and Hemingway County’s newly promoted detective. Carin is skeptical when Al, a wanna-be detective, approaches her with a pattern in a series of deaths.

Convinced an active serial killer exists, the Nursing Home Murders are the young detective’s ticket out of the limbo of being a small-town detective.

Desperately searching for answers, Carin learns that no one in her community is who they seem.

Al says he knows who’s next on the killer’s list.

Can Carin trust the information from someone on the suspect list?

Fans of female detective mysteries will be captivated by this page-turning novel that combines pulse-pounding suspense, complex characters, and an unflinching look at the dark underbelly of a seemingly idyllic town.

Is the story clear and easy to follow? Please say if it sucks and needs to be cut or rewritten. Don’t be afraid of offending me. I want to know if you read something and disagree with me.

I want to know any extremes you felt after reading. Was it entertaining, Inspiring? Substandard? Tedious? Pointing out confusing parts or passages requiring clarification, along with any questions you have, is REALLY helpful.

Let me know if you spot a problem with the writing and can find an easy way to fix it.

Don’t focus too much on grammatical errors unless they’re overt. Instead, I am looking for broad-stroke feedback that will help the reader.

I will gladly pay for the return shipping if you mark up the paperback.
