Sunday's My Series - Katherine Miller - Hudson House Murders by Janet Lane Walters #MFRWauthor
Book 4 in the cozy mystery series sees Katherine going undercover as a nurse at an exclusive nursing home in the town where she lives. I had fun with this book turning a house and the grounds on the river into a nursing home. Of course I enlarged the house and made the grounds more beautiful than they are in person. That's one of the beauties of being a writer taking the familiar and changing it into something else. But back to the story.
Katherine has a new set of tenants. One is a young woman, the granddaughter of a friend who was blamed for something as a child she didn't do. She was sent to relatives and has returned to town. Katherine wishes to re-unite her with her grandmother, a friend of Katherine's. There is at least one family member who wants to prevent this. Katherine's friend falls at church and fractures her hip. She is admitted to the nursing home. Katherine visits her and the friend tells her about some things she heard and about a death among the patients. This triggers Katherine's suspicions.
Suspicions flare and though she talks to her police friend he says there's nothing he can do. Katherine decides to go undercover as a nurse. She has kept her license current. She is hired and works the afternoon shift. And the fun begins.
This book in the series was fun to write. Since Katherine has become a couple with Lars the book adds to the romance and to the mystery.
