Blog Tour- Stiff Competition by Annelise Ryan

Blog Tour- Stiff Competition by Annelise Ryan was released on January 26th. This is book seven in the Mattie Winston Mystery Series.

Series: A Mattie Winston Mystery (Book 7)
Mass Market Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Kensington (January 26, 2016)
Language: English


Every fall, hunting season in Sorenson, Wisconsin, leads to some accidental injuries. Deputy coroner Mattie Winston just hopes the hunters don’t bring any more business to her office. But somebody seems to have declared open season on land developers. One real estate developer who’s recently come to town has been found dead in the woods with an arrow through his neck. Now it’s up to Mattie to get to the bottom of the killing. That might be easier if she wasn’t also hunting for Detective Hurley’s teenage daughter, Emily, who has suddenly disappeared. With a homicidal William Tell out on the loose, Mattie is desperate to find Emily before the killer notches another arrow…

This is book seven in the series and by far the best one yet. Mattie has a busy time with all that is happening with the new baby and work, she manages to keep it together. From the moment you open the book you are swept away to Sorenson Wisconsin. The characters have grown so much and keep the story fun and entertaining. I enjoyed this book and can't wait to find out what they will get themselves into next.
