This series keeps getting better as Mattie continues to develop her character. From hurt and depressed woman in the first book. She is not able to handle things better. The minor characters of Izzy, Don and the officers show more depth. Steve and the animals could be developed more. In this book, Mattie is back as deputy coroner knowing she cannot have a relationship with Steve. It is Christmas day and Mattie is called to a house fire where the firemen found a victim in the house. He turns out to a paraplegic who just won the jackpot at a casino. He keeps his cash in a home safe and it is missing. Mattie and Steve struggled to find answers. Mattie decides she can win a Jackpot also and starts gambling. Several directional changes are found in the plot before the answer is apparent. This author is adept at keeping the who did it a secret. I have yet to know the answer before I finished. This book can be read as a stand-alone.

Great title for a book!
Love this series.
I need to read this one; it sounds great. I got involved in the series a little later.
I went back in order the books in both the series.
