STIFF COMPETITION by Anneliese Ryan_Tour_Review

Review: STIFF COMPETITION by Annelise Ryan
(Mattie Winston Mysteries #7)

STIFF COMPETITION is an endearing emotional cozy mystery, with protagonist Mattie Winston, deputy coroner of small Sorensen, Wisconsin, coping with issues common, in whole or part, to many American women.  As a new mother, she's virtually sleepless, and she's just returned to full-time work. Her son's father, a local detective, struggles with his adolescent daughter, whose mother is deceased, and until recently didn't know her father was alive. Now he and Mattie have a murder to investigate, that of a much-disliked ladies' man land shark developer.



Every fall, hunting season in Sorenson, Wisconsin, leads to some accidental injuries. Deputy coroner Mattie Winston just hopes the hunters don’t bring any more business to her office. But somebody seems to have declared open season on land developers. One real estate developer who’s recently come to town has been found dead in the woods with an arrow through his neck. Now it’s up to Mattie to get to the bottom of the killing. That might be easier if she wasn’t also hunting for Detective Hurley’s teenage daughter, Emily, who has suddenly disappeared. With a homicidal William Tell out on the loose, Mattie is desperate to find Emily before the killer notches another arrow…
