Book Review: Nursing A Grudge

Nursing-Grudge-grey-bar-166x250WHAT’S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN?
For twenty-five years, EARL WALKER has been defined by the two worst things that ever happened to him: The death of his beloved wife, and the bullet that ended his career as a metro bus driver. Now bound to a wheelchair, he lives at Candlewick Retirement Center … where he barely knows the neighbors. Not that it matters: Following a failed state inspection, residents have thirty days to get out.

When he’s dragged from his assisted-living apartment to a clandestine spicy hot chili party, he almost has fun … until someone ends up dead. Now Earl seems to be the only one suspicious of the way the party-goer met his demise. Can he solve the puzzle—and figure out his relationship with his new lady friend—before Candlewick is closed down and the suspects move away?

a2fd9ea061040a7f0235a6.L._V137929916_SX200_Chris Well writes laugh-out-loud crime and mystery fiction. Fascinated with stories from a young age, Chris always knew he wanted to write. Following a lengthy tangent during which he became an award-winning writer and editor for magazines and newspapers (which, of course, is still “writing”), he published his first novel in 2005. His latest fiction includes the crime comedy Too Good to be Truman and the Earl Walker Mysteries.

He and his wife make their home in Tennessee. Please visit him online at

My Impressions:

I found another cozy mystery series that is good and is written from a Christian perspective! Chris Well is the author of the Earl Walker Mysteries which feature senior adult Earl Walker, a retired bus driver. In the first novel of the series, Earl is living at Candlewick, a retirement home. Earl has secluded himself from the other residents of the home and thinks he likes it that way. Lonely and bitter since being shot on his bus route and the death of his beloved wife, Earl is beyond grumpy. But an earnest and meddling college aged volunteer gets him back on track and right in the middle of a murder mystery.

The writing is funny, the characters are likable, and the whodunit keeps you guessing along with Earl. If you like cozy mysteries, I think you should try out Nursing A Grudge. And the Kindle version is currently only 99 cents!

    I just ordered this title from BN for my Nook, also for 99 cents, plus I found two other titles by him for the same price. Thanks for the recommendation.
