Sunday's Book Murder and Bitter Tea Janet Lane Walters #MFRWAuthor #BWLAuthor #Cozy mystery #Hudson River

Murder and Bitter Tea (Mrs. Miller Mysteries Book 4)

How the idea for this book came about was one of a number of things I'd read and seen in the mystery series I love to watch. I'd been heard about "angels of mercy" who were anything but. Nurses or other medical personnel who killed patients for a variety of insane reasons. my mind began to turn over and over with this idea. Then there was a story on TV about a killer hired to rid the world of people so their heirs could collect inheritances. The idea turned over andover. Then my husband was in a nursing home for a few months while recovering and things began to click. Suddenly Katherine's wealthy friend was in an exclusive nursing home. During a visit, Katherine hears something that triggers her fears. So I made her go sort of undercover though her policeman friend doesn't know at first. Thus the story began and there were a few twists and turns that jumped in. The story was a really fun one to write.

Katherine’s newest tenant is estranged from her family and is the granddaughter of one of Katherine’s friends. When her friend falls and fractures her hip, the elderly woman is taken to Hudson House nursing home, an exclusive house.

Katherine’s friend becomes concerned about several recent and unexpected deaths. When she dies Katherine’s curiosity and suspicions send her undercover as a nurse. Soon she’s deeply involved.

Can she learn who is behind the scheme to end the lives of wealthy patients without becoming a victim?
