American Homemaker by John Kaine


Kim Loomis is a social media star, homemaker, and mortician. With her husband Norman, they’ve been bringing in a dark harvest. But death is an infrequent visitor to a small town, and when they struggle to meet demand, Kim decides there is a profitable alternative. Except Norman doesn’t want any part of his wife’s horrific plans. He wants to leave Kim, but no one leaves America’s homemaker.

It was plain sailing for assassin Melody Morgan until she executes a drug cartel’s bagman. Hunted by highly efficient killers, Melody is forced to accept a job from Kim. But not everything is as it seems. Kim is hiding something, a secret so terrifying there may be no way out for anyone.


Holy cow! What an unexpected and shocking psychological thriller. 

Kim Loomis’ goals as America’s homemaker are high and she won’t let anyone get in her way. As self-appointed president of the new Homemakers Association of Vermont (HAV) and social media sensation, she is taking the vocation of homemaker by storm, but not everyone trusts her sincerity. In fact, there is something sinister about a homemaker who’s also a mortician. 

Melody Morgan is on the verge of retirement with a sizeable nest egg, but she just needs to do a couple more jobs. However, Melody is a contract killer who murdered the wrong husband. Now her life is in danger which leads her to a shocking discovery.

There are a number of characters in this disturbing story who are slowly revealed and all connected in a mind-blowing finale.  The book is full of murder and mayhem and no one is safe from a psychopath.

Thank you to Mr. Kaine and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
