About the Author: Chris Well

Here s the deal When I was in the first grade, my life goal was that I would grow up to be Batman Because I thought it was a vocation you know, policeman, fireman, Batman Once my first grade teacher crushed the dreams of that little boy, I guess I decided I would do the next best thing and make up stories about Batman And then somewhere after that I learned about things like intellectual property and copyright law and cease and desist and decided I would have to make up stories about my own characters.So today, I do just that Write stories about my own characters whether it s a doomed hitman named Solomon Long or a grumpy old amateur sleuth named Earl Walker or an out of work smart alec crime reporter named Truman.

    Nursing a Grudge is a light murder mystery that in some ways pays homage to the likes of some of our favorite elderly detectives like Matlock and Murder She Wrote It has all the right ingredients a solid cast of characters, an unlikely setting and a great plot However somewhere along the lines, the story lost me.I expectedintrigue from the story but instead I found that some of the clues were too obvious to the reader and were unfortunately not taken very serious by the main character E Nursing a Grudge is a light murder mystery that in some ways pays homage to the likes of some of our favorite elderly detectives like Matlock and Murder She Wrote It has all the right ingredients a solid cast of characters, an unlikely setting and a great plot However somewhere along the lines, the story lost me.I expectedintrigue from the story but instead I found that some of the clues were too obvious to the reader and were unfortunately not taken very serious by the main character Earl Also the story sometimes got a bit too slow for one that falls under the murder mystery category At one point you feel like Earl is about to solve the murder and wrap up the case but soon after the rationale falls apart and Earl finds himself starting all over again This happened at least three times throughout the entire story In addition, I found that the characters were forgetting facts that were already revealed to the reader and how this might have played a vital role in solving the murder Perhaps after a while I got pretty impatient with the story since the clues and rationales all seem to be going around in circles I would never want to disrespect the author by not completing the book I wanted to give the book the benefit of the doubt and at least complete it to see how the story would turn out Thankfully, the big reveal was convincing enough and lent itself to a well thought out plot.Though I didn t thoroughly enjoy this story, I am hoping that you might find it entertaining If you happen to read it, then let me know your thoughts on the story

    Earl Walker is depressed He sits in a nursing home, in a wheelchair, and watches TV in a nursing home facility He is awakened from his depression by the well meaning intentions of a college student who seems to want to jolt his from his depressive state While attending a dinner party, Earl is witness to a death that turns into a murder investigation.Notice how I ve used the word depress a couple of times That s because this is the feeling the book left me with Depressed and sad Earl and Earl Walker is depressed He sits in a nursing home, in a wheelchair, and watches TV in a nursing home facility He is awakened from his depression by the well meaning intentions of a college student who seems to want to jolt his from his depressive state While attending a dinner party, Earl is witness to a death that turns into a murder investigation.Notice how I ve used the word depress a couple of times That s because this is the feeling the book left me with Depressed and sad Earl and his friends in the nursing home just seem to be pitiful creatures acting out a thinly written play.Earl and his colleague I ve forgotten her name which is just as well because, as a character, she was forgettable , stumble about the whole book attempting to solve the mystery Their investigative skills involve racing down hallways in the nursing home and accusing everyone within earshot of some sort of crime, hoping that something might stick.The clues were largely absent or glaringly obvious the characters weren t likable or realistic the dialogue was stilted the sleuthing was haphazard and amateurish I also didn t like the religiousy tone the book had I would like to say it was a Christian mystery, but apart from some vague references to a bible and a couple of scripture referrals, Earl s tepid conversion to Christianity was confusing.Definitely not that cozy mystery you want to dive into this summer

    Well, an interesting read I read this through Net Galley, so it was nice to read something on the computer mixed things up a bit It was a very good story, but it had some interesting moments I would say this story, although short in page length was very long in its building moments I felt like it took forever for the story to get underway and then awhile for it to wrap up.The other challenging aspect for the story was the weird random Christian inserts Let me explain the story would be Well, an interesting read I read this through Net Galley, so it was nice to read something on the computer mixed things up a bit It was a very good story, but it had some interesting moments I would say this story, although short in page length was very long in its building moments I felt like it took forever for the story to get underway and then awhile for it to wrap up.The other challenging aspect for the story was the weird random Christian inserts Let me explain the story would be going along and then all of the sudden the characters would be talking about praying or needing God It was just random and I think what made itrandom is that it wasn t really dealt with in the end of the story The concepts were introduced sporatically, but weren t finished in the end

    This book began slowly but managed to keep my interest The dialog is fun when the two characters begin imagining how the person was killed, if he was I do not know if this is going to be a stand alone mystery or perhaps, as in the cozy genre, a series What ever is chosen, I would suggest to the Author, that he not make Seniors so addled and show that in a community of seniors, there are all types of personalities and he could form a group of pals to become their sleuth teams.All in all a good This book began slowly but managed to keep my interest The dialog is fun when the two characters begin imagining how the person was killed, if he was I do not know if this is going to be a stand alone mystery or perhaps, as in the cozy genre, a series What ever is chosen, I would suggest to the Author, that he not make Seniors so addled and show that in a community of seniors, there are all types of personalities and he could form a group of pals to become their sleuth teams.All in all a good book
