I also noticed a number of misspellings and omitted words.e.g. dinning room, he shinned his flashlight, moviea . I got it for free and it was enjoyable. I will recommend it but not sure I would pay much for others in the series, perhaps that is my fault for not starting at the series beginning.
Give it a read, especially if the price stays low. I never wanted to quit before the ending, but the plot needed tweaking and re-formulating.

Keep them coming Ms. Avocato!!!
She is supposed to be an insurance investigator but everyone she works with at an ambulance service she is investigating is apparently also on the case. 1/3 of the way into the book I had no clue what the writer was trying to convey other than Jagger made her; nervous, aroused, frustrated, excited, or scared, and he was her partner. I think the author was shooting for a Ranger type character (a la Janet Evanovich) but just completely missed the mark.
I threw up my hands and quit when Pauline (the main character) states she has a photogenic memory. Huh??? So her memory looks good in pictures is that what the author meant? Who or what is Jagger? There is no character development and no discernable plot. I can't she how this would have ever made it past even a marginally competent editor.
This book did teach me that I can't look at the overall rating but need to check those four and five star ratings to see if the reviewers are shown to have purchased the book. I really wanted to like the book but just could not find any redeeming qualities. So perhaps the best thing about the book was it's prophetic title.
So glad this one was free. One of the few I just couldn't finish and will delete from my library.
While Pauline and Jagger work together to get the information they need, Pauline's attention is diverted between the baffling Jagger and the hunky ER Dano until her boss Payne ends up murdered at Pauline's feet, and she starts getting threatening phone calls from the killer. Can Pauline get this case solved before the killer gets to her? Or will her attraction to Dano be too much of a distraction for her to her focus?
Dead on Arrival by Lori Avocato is another thrilling adventure in the Pauline Sokol mysteries.
Pauline is a great character that readers can relate to and enjoy as she learns more investigating skills with each case. There is plenty of humor to be found throughout this story with Pauline's bumbling that gives it that extra bit of excitement.
Lori Avocato has done a great job in creating a story with the perfect mix of details, colorful characters and mystery that makes this book a perfect read for a hot summer's day.
