GoodReads Summary:  
After human lie detector Charmaine Digby scores a job as the County Coroner's new investigative assistant, the unthinkable happens—a doctor reports the suspicious death of Trudy, a family friend and one of several elderly patients at the hospital whose heart mysteriously stopped.

With no physical evidence of foul play, Char's on the case, much to the irritation of Detective Steve Sixkiller, who doesn't want her to stick her pretty nose for trouble in his investigation. But she's a woman on a mission to uncover the truth, and she'd better keep her eyes open or the next body on the way to the morgue could be hers....

My review:  
Total comedy spoof! If it weren't for the fact that people are dying here, I'd have laughed through the whole thing. Charmaine is a laugh a minute with her constantly dropping by her great uncle's diner (don't give up your day job) and grabbing food to feed everyone so she can get information out of them or bribe them to do something to help her solve this case that nobody's working. She damn smart, too!

And Detective Sixkiller is just trying to keep her out of trouble and danger when he insists that there is no case. He likes the donuts and coffee and he's pretty taken with her, too! Love his nickname for her, "Chow Mein".

I recommend this one for those of you who like lots of humor and just a touch of romance with your murder. Definitely a fun read!
