Funny mystery with a serious subject deal with with sensitivity

Dead of Winter (A Mattie Winston Mystery Book 10)

By: Annelise Ryan

Rating: 5 of 5

This is a series that I have been reading out of order. So far, before this book, I have read #7 and then #1. After reading this book, I’ll be reading the rest of the books. However, I highly suggest reading the books in order as the author gives spoilers in this book for early books in the series. I solved the issue by skipping the paragraphs that dealt with earlier whodunnits.

The dialog and characters are funny as are a lot of the happenings. What is not funny and is dealt with seriously is the subject of human trafficking and the grief of those who are victims of it.

As I have with the other books in this series, I laughed quite a lot. The author has my kind of humor but can express it so much better than I can.

Mattie Winston is our sleuth and she works in the Medical Examiners office. Her husband is a detective and her children are a hoot. I’ll be looking forward to reading the prior books in this series and to seeing new ones in the future.

I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
