Katie LeClair has finally settled down as the new doctor in Baxter, MI. After years of moving, schooling, and training, she wants nothing more than to find a place she can call home, and a small town outside of Ann Arbor seemed perfect.
Katie quickly gets to work in building a life for herself in Baxter, and beyond reviving her love life, she also finds a pair of business partners in a team of father and son family practitioners. But that idyllic dream is immediately shattered when one of her patients is found dead. That wouldn't be the worst thing, except the death is ruled a suicide, and as evidence has it, the suicide was a result of the medication Katie had prescribed. But she doesn't remember writing it.
When a closer investigation reveals it was murder, Katie is catapulted into an off-the-books investigation that leads her down a dark path of past secrets. But someone is willing to kill to keep part of the town's history in the shadows, and Katie must race to find out who before it's too late in nationally bestselling author Dawn Eastman's riveting series debut Unnatural Causes.
Review: Unnatural Causes is the first book in a new series. I am a fan of her Family Fortune series, so I thought I'd try the Dr. Katie LeClair series.


This is a step up from a cozy but not as dark and most police type procedural novels.

I like to think cozies are a little more humorous and light. This book is a little smarter while still having a lot of the same elements of a cozy.

I liked getting to know Katie as the story progressed. I definitely want to get to know her better in upcoming books.
