Authentic forensic details testify to the author's knowledge of the subject as the daughter of a medical examiner. But some readers may be upset by violence involving a horse...An intense, riveting mystery that combines the coziness of small-town familiarity with the sobering reality of drugs and murder.-- "Library Journal (starred review)"
Emily is strong and competent, vulnerable and kind...Add a twisty plot, romance, and family drama and the result is this satisfying first-in-a-series mystery.-- "Dawn Eastman, author of Unnatural Causes"
Fast-paced and riveting, The Coronor by Jennifer Dornbush is filled with surprises, authentic detail, and memorable characters. Well done!-- "Carla Neggers, author of Imposter's Lure"
If you like small town mysteries, twisty reads, or books by Lisa Black or Patricia Cornwell, you'll love The Coroner.-- "Karen Harper, author of American Duchess"

Although engaged to a doctor from a well to do family Nick is her first love. Now the town sheriff, he has never stopped loving her.
When a young rising equestrian star is murdered Emily steps in to help using her medical skills to uncover the murderer. In doing so emotions surface which never really went away as well as an unresolved issue from the past.
The author is the daughter of a real medical examiner drawing on personal experience and memories to write this book. The ending left me wanting to know more and eager for a sequel.
This book has a little romance, mystery, crime and a hard to pick villain (the last person I thought of). My favourite parts included details on the coroner/autopsy/medical side of things.
Emily was my favourite character. She had a lot of personality traits I admire.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a free digital copy of the book in return for an honest review.

I kept with this book because I wanted to see how easily the female protagonist gives up her medical career in Chicago to settle with the sheriff and a small town medical examiner practice. So easy.
Not so easy to digest is the weird thing with her mother's death 15 years prior. And why she fled her small town, her father, the love interest, etc. And why her father didn't investigate his own wife's death. This is not explained well nor does it add much to the story. In fact, the whole thing hangs like a bag of moldy laundry all over this story. It doesn't smell right and you can't get rid of it. If anybody can explain the ending, you have my admiration.
