Funeral homes are supposed to be quiet ...

Jennifer Spencer inherits her uncle’s funeral home. Her move to the Niagara Region into the apartment above the Home went well, but in the first week alone, someone breaks into the funeral home. Then, Jennifer finds cash in a casket, a lot of cash. Certain it has something to do with the break-in, she’s unable to convince the police and winds up on their list of suspects. But Jennifer has families to serve and funerals to arrange; that is her number-one priority. Someone sinister and dangerous wants the cash back; that’s their number-one priority and Jennifer Spencer, funeral director, is in the way.

Author's note: The main plot continues in Book 2, Winter's Mourning. The series is best read in order.

Not all mysteries involve murder...

Funeral Director Jennifer Spencer's walk along the Niagara Parkway on a rainy, cold day leads her to Winter, a distraught young woman who isn't speaking.
Travis, the temporary director hired when Uncle Bill passed, is still out for revenge. That won't happen if she listens to the police officers assigned to protect her … but she doesn't.

Can Jennifer survive her own harrowing ordeal in order to help Winter get her life back?

Mistakes have consequences.

Funeral Director Jennifer Spencer forgot to check the weather report. A tornado wrecked havoc at the cemetery where a burial was to take place. First mistake.

An interior designer is murdered. Jennifer is determined to find the killer. Second mistake.

Adding to the business of running two funeral homes comes an illness, a wedding and potentially the most grave mistake of all.

Two mistakes too late.

First call. In a funeral home, it means a death has occurred and it is the family’s first contact with the funeral director.

Public health officials call regional funeral directors together for a meeting. An influenza pandemic is sweeping the country. Funeral director Jennifer Spencer is appointed Area Coordinator, working with military, bereavement personnel and public health officials to manage the morgue at an arena in Niagara Falls. 

One of her staff is murdered. The killer makes a second attempt.
As influenza claims more and more lives, overwhelmed personnel succumb to exhaustion, grief and illness. Jennifer and her staff struggle to push through the crushing workload caused by the pandemic's deadly rampage. 

Everyone has a breaking point and Jennifer is no exception.

Born in Toronto a few minutes after my twin, I knew I wanted to be a funeral director when I was eight, although I came to my career as a funeral director a little later in life. The Making of a Funeral Director was written over the course of several years. Writing was so much fun the Spencer Funeral Home Niagara Cozy Mystery series followed.
