My Review

I really enjoyed reading Death is Always a Resident. The characters were interesting, there was some light suspense while the main character (Jan) tries to figure out what happened, there was some family drama, and there was a touch of sweet romance. The nursery home was also an interesting setting with pressure for Jan to keep her job. The plot was livened up by her teenage daughter who was hiding something, a possible replacement who wanted her job, a villain (or two) who were out to get Jan, and a friendly doctor.

I would have liked the suspense to rack up slightly and I would have loved the romance to have been developed a little more. The ending was also too rushed for me and I wanted it to feel a little more realistic with maybe the police more involved, but it still worked. Maybe if there would have been an epilogue...

I'd recommend Death is Always a Resident to those who enjoy reading light romantic suspense.

    Sounds like a fun read for me.

  2. I can't pick a favorite romantic suspense, there are way too many good ones to every choose!

  3. I don't have a favorite romantic suspence. Currently reading Midnight Heat by Sarah Grimm and loving it, already read book 1. Thank you

  4. So this is a tough one. But if I had to pick one.. it's be a series... Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooter series. Still, not an easy decision, as given by me picking a series!
