Your Eight O’Clock Is Dead
by Kat Jorgensen
Becca Reynolds is having a bad day. Her grandfather’s lecture (#405: Eat a Healthy Diet or Die Not Trying) makes her late for her job at Daley and Palmer, the psychiatrists’ office where she works as the office manager–her title, not theirs. Then her sausage and egg breakfast biscuit creates an oil slick that takes out half her desk, along with that day’s patient files. But she knows the day has taken a really bad turn when she discovers the firm’s eight o’clock patient dead with Dr. Dick Daley’s letter opener opening the patient instead of the mail.
With the fledgling firm in danger of an early demise, Becca appoints herself the unofficial investigator since the police seem to be looking in all the wrong places and doing a half-assed job of solving the crime. She begins a journey to find the killer, keep the practice afloat and with it, her job. In the course of her interfere–er, investigation–she finds a virtual cast of characters who could have done it, including the fancy side piece of the murder victim, his wife, his business partner, and even his psychiatrist.
The case takes Becca from the sordid depths of the Russian mob, to the upscale West End of Richmond, Virginia (known locally as River City), and even to her own backyard. In the course of the story she finds herself in hot water, hot danger, and with dreams of hot men.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I adore the quirky characters in Kat Jorgensen’s first mystery. Becca, her grandfather, Higgins the cat…the hilarity abounds! And Ryder…be still my heart! This was a wonderful read and I literally couldn’t put it down once I started. I had to know how it ended. I can’t wait to read what Kat comes up with next for these great characters!
This fast-paced, incredibly funny murder mystery will have you in stitches from the opening scene. Even better are those moments of tenderness and romance that are often lacking in mysteries. Don’t hesitate to download this one! Then sit back and indulge in an enjoyable evening of murderous mayhem.
This really did keep me guessing on who done it right to the end. Wonderful cast of quirky characters and some delicious sexy men thrown in for good measure. I hope we see lots more of Max in the rest of the series. Fun read. Recommended.
I enjoyed this book. It is well written and funny and kept my interest to the end. I didn’t see the plot twists coming. Introduced and developed several characters, so hopefully there is a series in the future. I highly recommend this fun read.
In the vein of the funniest writers available, Kat Jorgensen has presented us with a witty, delightful read, and a combination of zany characters. I tried, but couldn’t guess the villain, and was pleasantly surprised at the ending. If you love a great mystery, Your Eight O’Clock is Dead, will entertain for hours. I can’t wait for book two to hit the shelves. Kudos to Ms Jorgensen on her first book in the River City mystery series!
