Human resources manager Judy Kenagy hopes her days of running from bad bosses and guilt-ridden memories are over. But alas, she’s barely settled in when a young female employee is found shot to death, spinning her new workplace into turmoil. Small-town police chief, Carl Bombardier solicits Judy’s help in her role as the company’s HR Manager. While working with Judy, he shares his fanatical interest in a twenty-five-year-old double homicide he believes is linked to her last and worst bad boss. To make matters worse, the trusted assistant of her monster ex-boss starts showing up, keeping the unwanted connection going. When the pesky trusted assistant turns up murdered, Judy learns there’s a connection with the shooting death of the employee. She starts sleuthing at the crime scene and stumbles upon an important piece of evidence. Can she solve all of the murders with this single find? If she does, will she finally be freed from the demons of her past? Or are things not as they seem?
“Fun Cozy, you’ll love it!!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Brenda
I loved this book! Having a human resource manager as the sleuth covers a host of things I can relate to in the work place, bad bosses, nightmare jobs, and big conflicts, in short all the things I can relate to in the working world. I also loved the atmosphere of the beautiful gulf coast before Katrina. I give this fun cozy a big thumbs up!!
About the Author
Linda Thorne was born in a podunk little town somewhere in the Deep South, but by the time she was six weeks old, she was living in Phoenix, Arizona. There, the feeling of being misplaced stayed with her. As soon as she was of age, she started moving. First, to Minnesota, which didn’t feel right, so back to her desert city. Then to the Midwest, returning to Phoenix twelve months later. Her next move took her to California, then Colorado. Her wanderlust stayed with her until she rediscovered living in the South where her debut novel is set.
Thorne’s career, like her lead character’s, is in HR management, but she began pursuing her true passion, writing, in 2005. Just Another Termination is the first in a series of mysteries that tell the story of Judy Kenagy, the first human resources manager to turn sleuth. She is currently writing the second book in her series, A Promotion to Die For. Thorne lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two border collies.
