    3.5 stars rounded up to a 4. I could have used a little more excitement and I expected it to be a bit darker, but it's still a really enjoyable read that introduces a promising new character: Dr. Katie LeClair. I think I'll definitely pick up the second book in the series when it comes out! I'd love to read more of what Katie gets herself in to. Dr. Katie LeClair is starting to adjust to small town life. After years of school and interning in a l...

    3.5 starsThis is a low key mystery, almost a cozy mystery if you will. It’s a nice change from some of the really gruesome mysteries I’ve been reading lately. Dr. Katie LeClair is just out of her residency and working at a small town practice. A patient of hers supposedly commits suicide using pills Katie supposedly prescribed. But she didn’t. A large part of the beginning of the book is spent developing Katie’s character. There’s a str...

    I give this book 4 out of 5 Suspenseful Stars! I really enjoyed this story and was completely engrossed by the suspense of this story. The story wasn’t too suspenseful but not too cozy either, it was mostly just right. I really enjoyed Katie’s character and the complexity of her relationship with her brother. I found Katie likable and relatable which was fantastic. The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because I wish their was som...

I don't know, but I do know that I really, really liked it. The start is slooow and there are a looot of characters, but please, please stay with it. The plot is inventive and those medical professionals out there will absolutely love it. There is a lot of medical detail and I bet they are spot ...

    This may fit the check boxes of a cozy, but it does not really feel like one. But if you are a lover cozies don’t let that deter you because this mystery will keep you hopping from one character to another trying to uncover the mysteries surrounding this little town in Michigan.Katie may be a newer doctor but that doesn’t keep her from making sure she is doing the best job possible for all her patients. We see the caring side of her with some...

    You can find my review on my blog at That's What She's Reading .While I went into this story with the impression that it was going to be darker, it was ultimately a good, solid mystery that set the stage for a series that I am very much looking forward to continuing on with! It's light-hearted and low key enough for any mystery lover, but filled with more suspense and tension to set it above more traditional cozys. I thoroughly enjoyed experienc...

    Dawn Eastman, the author of the highly entertaining Family Fortune cozy series, is branching out with this book. Unnatural Causes is a fast-paced, solid mystery that kept me guessing, and the main characters are well placed to solve mysteries. Katie LeClair is a caring, gifted doctor, and what makes her a good doctor makes her a good investigator. Her brother Caleb is very good with computers, and since Katie saved the life of the police chief's ...

    I was unfamiliar with the writer. After spending an afternoon reading this entertaining and engrossing novel, I am now a big fan of Dr. Katie LeClair and her adventures in a small Michigan town. Upon first blush all seems well with Dr. LeClair. Her patients like her as well as her peers. Then a patient dies of an apparent drug overdose and the bottle found at the scene has her as the prescribing doctor. Only problem is, she did not write that scr...

    Suspense? Thriller? Cozy? This is one that the cover doesn't tell us.Honesty I expected it to be more of a thriller and a little dark.I dare to say someone that is a fan of Cozy's and not the other two might not give Unnatural Causes a chance. And, that would be bad. Unnatural Causes is a little different that most cozy's but still will fall in the category. This was a great read. The character(s) are fun to get to know. Katie is a strong charact...

    I was either in a mood or a funk when I started this one because I really didn't like it when I first started reading it. It probably took almost half way through for me to get interested in it enough to keep going but once I did I enjoyed it. I am not sure if it was just to slow at the beginning or what but the ending was pretty cool and it has a good mystery.Katie moves to a small town near Ann Arbor to get out of the big city, but see is prett...

    Really enjoyed the characters, loved the progression of the story and am looking forward to reading more of this series. That said, the ending was just a bit too complex to be believable. Perhaps because of what may happen later in the series? Otherwise, a very enjoyable read.
