If I Should Die is one hell of a read! Thank you to FMB Blog Tours for allowing me to read and review this book and also being a part of this tour. I have to say that when I first started reading it I was like okay I think I know what is going to happen. I have to tell you when you read this just read it don't try to guess or go ahead for spoilers because you will rob yourself of a GREAT read!

Peyton is a researcher for the newspaper and has just moved to a small town when she wakes up and finds

Within the first four pages of If I Should Die, I realized I'd better stop trying to guess what will happen next, because inevitably I was wrong. Christie weaves a concise novel of constant twists. Each new character introduced raises a new layer of mystery to the opening crime scene: a man murdered on a young reporter's kitchen floor. And as each individual character's story unfolds bit by bit, we're thrown a new curve, the plot becoming more and more complex.

A very enjoyable read, this book easily held my attention and kept me guessing throughout. Peyton finds herself living a nightmare when she tries unsuccessfully to help a mortally injured man who stumbled into her kitchen.

Peyton, however, is not your usual protagonist. A young widow, she just moved into town six months earlier. She is a quiet homebody whose best friend seems to be Emma, the cat she inherited when she leased her apartment.

I loved the overall tone and voice of this story; though

I received a copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

What a great read with enough twists and turns that make the “who did it” near impossible to detect until near the end. And even then, there are questions that are not answered until the last page is turned. Filled with both the best and worst of things people do to and with each other, each person encountered has a hand in the decepti

Peyton wakes up to find a dying man in her kitchen. After he dies, she goes to her bedroom to call 911 and waits for the police to arrive. But when they do, all they find is a mass of blood and no body.

An exciting start to a involved plot dealing with a number of likely suspects and other crimes including murder, embezzlement, lots of lying by more than one party, and Peyton's in the middle of it, suspected of killing the man who wasn't there.

I liked how Ms. Christie interweaves the plots and s

If I Should Die, took me two days (I'm a slow reader so gather what you will). This book gave a plot-filled and tension-packed story that had me wanting to know more. The twists and turns were intriguing. As a first novel it did have a couple of minor issues here and there but I wouldn't dare spoil the read for anyone by mentioning them here. I enjoyed the book and I look forward to purchasing her next book, Milk Carton People.
