Suture Self is one of Mary Daheim's bed-and-breakfast mysteries. It was a rather enjoyable book for me to read.
The entire story, except the very beginning, takes place in Good Cheer Hospital. Judith McMonigle Flynn, who runs a bed-and-breakfast, needs a hip replacement, so off to the hospital she goes. Her cousin, Renie, who is as close to her as a sister, needs rotator cuff surgery, and both cousins end up together in the same room of Good Cheer Hospital. But both ladies are worried about their surgeries. There were two unexpected deaths of patients at Good Cheer. The patients had routine surgery, but they still passed away. When a third routine surgery ends up in death, Judith and Renie think more than coincidence is going on here. So they intend to find out what is happening, even though they themselves are recuperating from surgery.
This book is humorous and fun to read. Certain sections were a little slow for me, but for the most part I enjoyed this 324 page paperback and will be reading more from the series.
