Ainsley Moss never thought she’d become a representative for the dead. But as a newbie obituary writer for the Aurora Fall’s Guardian, she gets a sneak peek at her new profession. Her ex-best friend and rival newspaper worker turns up blue and stiff as a board in the women’s bathroom—after they’ve had a less than civil confrontation.

Ainsley’s in the habit of memorializing

Dollycas’s Thoughts

First I have to say Ainsley’s mother is super domineering and she is the one that sent her daughter’s into this mess. :) Ainsley returns to Aurora Falls and her mother not only has arranged for job at the local newspaper but also set it up so she becomes her ex-boyfriend’s tenant. She is at her “interview” and she runs into ex-best friend who she then finds dead.

The characters in this story cozy worthy quirky. Ainsley’s mother would drive me out of the house too. Then there ar

When I first started to read this book I was excited, but then my excitement dropped. This book was not the book for me, but as a reader who got this book in return for a review I had to finish it. The author has a great way of overlaying the details to the characters so much that coming up with a visual depiction is easy. I do think this book needs great improvement and with that it would be a good read. I really liked the last 20% off the book and how everything was working together and the en ...more

I loved this book. I was thoroughly pleased to find that there was not an over abundance of language. It's refreshing to find a book that doesn't have the "F" word written multiple times on each page. This book kept my interest from beginning to end. It had me on the edge of my seat a good portion through. My only complaint is that I wanted more of an ending, a little more of a closing between Ainsley and Gage.

This is definitely a must read if you love mystery.

The story follows Ainsley. She move

I was gifted this book by a friend who is a author and was trying to help a fellow author out by gaining honest reviews. The book started off a bit slow for me and went into more detail then needed but toward the end it got better & interesting! I loved the obituaries included at the end! If there is a sequel I think having more of the main characters actual job mentioned would make it more interesting, like having obituaries throughout the story! I would give a 2nd book a try!

I received this book free for an exchange for a review.

I thought the book sounded really good but it wasn't really for me. Too much detail and several parts dragged on. I had a hard time getting into the story which made it a slow read. This is a new author and I believe with some work to her writing style she could be great.
