A bum hip has bed-and-breakfast hostess Judith McMonigle Flynn limping off to Good Cheer Hospital -- a questionable "haven of healing" where two recent patients didn't make the cut after routine surgery. Judith's trepidation at undergoing the knife is eased only by sharing a room with cousin Renie, who's in for rotator cuff repair. Though the cousins survive their surgeries, the ex-pro quarterback next door is permanently sacked after minor knee surgery. With the scoreboard showing Grim Reaper 3, post-op patients 0, Judith decides that she and Renie are obliged to get to the bottom of Good Cheer's carnage. But in order to sew up the case, Judith and Renie must probe into the suspects' psyches. And suddenly it looks as if the cousins' own prognoses could take them out of the game...for good.… (more)

Suture Self (Bed-and-Breakfast Mysteries #17) by Mary Daheim

Judith and her cousin Renie are both schedule for elective surgery at Good Cheer Hospital. Judith is a bit leery due to the fact that a seemingly healthy celebrity and Athlete died after surgery. Once admitted another healthy live is lost, will she and/or her cousin be next? Judith begins investigating before anyone else dies.

A fast paced mystery with an engaging plot and well developed characters. Judith is very likable, she has some family issues she is facing as well as solving (probable) murders. Renie is out-spoken and likable too. A great mix of suspense, secrets, danger and humor. Overall I enjoyed Suture Self, and recommend to those who enjoy a good who-done-it. ( )

Judith and Renie are having surgery, and staying in the same room ! That's a recipe for snooping even though Judith can't really get around after her hip replacement. Of course too many locally famous people have died in the hospital and Judith has to find out why.
I figured out the motive, but not the perp. It was fun. ( )

Coincidentally Judith and Serena are scheduled to have surgery and are admitted to the same ward at the same time. They are both unnerved by the two deaths that have already occurred at the hospital and even more unnerved by the one which occurs in the room next door. Naturally Judith's suspicions are aroused and despite the limited mobility with a hip replacement (and even consciousness at times), she manages to work it all out. This really is a cosy series, just like visiting old friends (and they really are getting older, hence the surgery). ( )
