The Corpse Who Walked in the Door by Jackie King
on Tour September 2014
Former society wife Grace Cassidy is learning to live on the minimum wage she earns as a bed & breakfast inn-sitter. Grace finds her cat’s bloody paw prints leading away from a bathtub and wants to run for her life. But she can’t. Her 19-year-old son is accused of pushing his pregnant girlfriend down a flight of concrete steps and she won’t abandon him.
Read an excerpt:
Blood colored paw prints trailed from the white tile bathroom onto the faux Oriental rug in the bedroom where Grace stood. The cat-feet marks immobilized Grace. She closed her eyes and prayed that she had been claimed by stress-induced insanity, that there were no dark-red blots before her eyes, but a hallucination. A nice long rest in a mental hospital didn’t sound too bad. Anything except another dead body in this inn where she worked.
Jackie King loves books, writing tall tales, and murdering the people she dislikes on paper. Her latest mystery The Corpse Who Walked in the Door is available in ebook format. She is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Romance Writers of America, Oklahoma Writers Federation, and Tulsa NightWriters.
The Corpse Who Walked in the Door by Jackie King is a fun and interesting cozy mystery. It is the second Grace Cassidy mystery, but the first that I’ve read. Grace is a great character. I found this story easy to read and it was a quick read for me. I enjoyed it. I found myself wanting to know what happened next and trying to figure out ‘whodunnit’ along with Grace. I also liked Theodora in the story. She was funny and sassy.
