Ruth Mosby is the VP of operations at Serenity Acres, where the privileged elite go to die. For a hefty fee, wealthy retirees can live the good life in this posh Santa Barbara community—even after they outlive their money. Ruth thinks this is a fine arrangement, but the savvy new boss has a

Ruth Mosby is the VP of Operations at a luxury retirement community. Ruth is very strict and doesn’t like it when rules aren’t followed. So when the retirement home is sold to a new company, things don’t sit well with Ruth. The new company wants destitute residents out. There have been residents dying under unusual conditions and someone called the “Angel” is responsible. Some of these deaths seem to be assisted suicide when there is evidence of a “club” of elderly residents who want to decide w ...more

This book deals with a serious issue that is ripped from current head lines.
It deals with a nurse in an elderly home who helps the residents cross over.
This is a thought provoking read about assisting suicide and its implications morally, legally and psychologically.

This isn't an easy read but it held my attention through out and I think it will stay with me for sometime.
Thanks Netgalley, the publisher and the author for an ARC in exchange for a honest opinion.

More of a mystery then thriller. Not an author I’m familiar with but would certainly read another of her novels. Fast read,, easy read.

I received an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review

This book was good enough for what it was, but it didn’t really suck me in. I found the characters fairly flat with the exception of the angel – he could’ve had the whole book. The story itself was unusual and well-crafted. 3.5 rounded down

I wanted to love this book and I almost did. It's very well written and the mystery at the core of this book (seniors being murdered at a retirement home) is tightly crafted but the two main characters, Ruth and Zach, just didn't quite ring true for me and I had a hard time getting to like them or to believe their narrative. Aside from that though this book held my interest until the end. If you can get to appreciate the pair I think you will enjoy this story. Thank you NetGalley for the advance ...more

Ruth works as a director at Serenity Acres - a "life care community" in Santa Barbara, California. Ruth is cold and can be uncaring to her employees...and they know it.

A patient with terminal bone cancer is assisted in dying by an "Angel" who keeps a Crossing Journal of all those (7 so far) who have passed on with his/her help. A common thread seems to be a pink post-it with the patient's name and a date & time. And what is the Goodnight Club?

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this ARC for my honest review.

I had a really hard time with this one. It was very slow and just did not hold my attention. I do not like to DNF a book but I was not able to finish it.
