Stiff Penalty is a quick-paced, fast read with plenty of suspects to keep you guessing.
Ryan moves the story and subplots together artfully and pulls the pieces together at the end.

I love this book! I wanted to give it Six Kitties, but my scale only goes up to five. I need a new scale!
A great book with a great protagonist.

I really liked the character and how they interacted with each other.
~Kaisy Daisy’s Corner
The characters are very realistic and well characterized, Mattie is really funny, ironic and also very brave.
The story is well written, with lots of humor and laughter, the plot is intriguing and well-developed.
This laugh out loud whodunit will make you want to read till the end. You will be hooked on this one right from the start. The cast of characters are so life like that you will forget you are reading a book.
~Shelley’s Book Case
The mystery was well written and keeps you guessing. I like the way everything ended up.
This is a good enjoyable read and any Cozy fan will enjoy it.

Deputy coroner Mattie Winston knows a thing or two about dead bodies. That’s why she’s on the case of Derrick Ames, a high school math teacher stabbed to death with a barbecue fork straight to the heart. Sure, she’s turned up some motives and a few suspects, but nothing adds up. Especially when the evidence points to Ames’s teenage son. Newly pregnant Mattie can’t believe it, even as her own long-estranged father may be following her. But one thing’s certain, she’d better start figuring things out fast, or a deadly perpetrator could be subtracting two more victims from the population of Sorenson, Wisconsin…
