Book 2 in the Midwest Cozy Mysteries 
by Dianne Harman

Kat Denham, a popular author of steamy romance novels, has decided to write a book in a different genre. She has a friend who's a doctor of acupuncture, has just lost over one hundred pounds, is getting married in mid-life for the first time to a doctor, and seems like the perfect role model for the protagonist in Kat's soon-to-be-written book. But fate intervenes when Kat happens to be at the acupuncture clinic when a patient, Sandy Hendrick, mysteriously dies. Suddenly Kat is involved in a murder mystery she has to solve to save her reputation and that of her friend, Mitzi.

Who was the murderer? Was it Mitzi, Kat's acupuncturist? Or was it a doctor from the clinic who desperately wants Mitzi discredited, so he'll be named the Assistant Dean of Acupuncture? Then there's Sandy's philandering husband, Matt, and Mitzi's fiancee's ex-girlfriend. Or was it the clinic's receptionist, Rochelle? Will the sting Kat devises to help catch the murderer work? And what part does Kat's guard dog, Rudy, play?

Another fast-paced mystery with food, dogs, and recipes from seven time Amazon All-Star, Dianne Harman.


There are so many things that can be said about author Dianne Harman’s book. Original jumps out at me. While yes, her books have many of the elements that make a cozy mystery cozy, so many of her plots, characters, and settings are always just a bit different. Original.

MURDER AT THE CLINIC gets my vote for one of the more creative ways to commit murder. Cozy authors have to be so careful not to be gruesome, but that doesn’t mean they always have to choose boring weapons. I respect authors such as Harmon who can keep the fresh ideas coming.

Well written, and a fast paced read, MURDER AT THE CLINIC kept me on my toes, and busy guessing. Protagonist, Kat Denham, had to stay sharp to solve the murder in this one. With so many suspects, it was like searching for a needle in a haystack!

If you liked book one, MURDERED BY WORDS, you’re going to love MURDER AT THE CLINIC!
