From USA Today bestselling author Gin Jones comes a clever new sleuth in the traditional cozy genre…
As the former governor's wife, Helen Binney is used to being in charge. So when illness and two pushy nieces force her to take on a visiting nurse, Helen uses every trick in the book to slip away from the annoying woman. Only someone must have disliked the nurse even more than Helen, because the woman's dead body shows up the next day in Helen's yard! Now it's up to Helen to prove that not only is she perfectly capable of taking care of herself, she's also perfectly capable of solving one cold-blooded murder. Between the nurse's shady past, an elusive "Remote Control Burglar," and an unlikely partnership with a handsome lawyer, Helen finds herself being drawn into the killer's carefully crafted web. The only question is, can Helen survive a little dose of death?

A great start to a new series!!
I received this book as a *gift. It's a very unique book with an older woman who suffers from Lupus.Helen Binney, was the Governors wife who is now divorced and living on her own. Her 2 nieces are worried about her living by herself in her cottage which is in the country and because of the lupus, her health hasn't been the best. Against her wishes, her nieces decide to hire a visiting nurse to check up on her but this nurse is NOT someone you want to take care of you! Helen Binney doesn't have many friends because "everyone irritates her" but manages to make several during the course of the book while trying to solve the murder of her visiting nurse. The book is funny and you don't know who did it until the very end. The characters are well developed and interesting. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to the next one in the series.
*This book was given to me from the publisher for an HONEST review.
A dose of Death---A Fantastic Read
I absolutely loved this book. It was one of the best mysteries I've read in a very long time. I didn't figure out who did it until the very end. Helen was a hoot. She just wants to be left alone and people keep getting murdered. The relationship she has with new lawyer is great. They really play off of each other. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.
