**A humorous southern mystery**
For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.
Rose realizes she's wasted 24 years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: 28 things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She's well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won't help with number 15 - do more with a man. Joe's new to town, but it doesn't take a vision for Rose to realize he's got plenty secrets of his own.
Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they'll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn't her biggest worry after all.

"Though much of the book is light-hearted and occasionally outright hilarious, the author sneaks in a few home truths along the way that will hit you where it counts, like how even someone's best intentions can box you in." ( Everybody Needs a Little Romance)
"This was one of those books that I kept telling myself one more page, then I need to put it down. Instead I found myself tearing through the book instead, needing to know the outcome." ( Just Jump Book Reviews)


Das könnte Ihnen auch gefallen:




Die Geschichte ist super spannend, man kann bis zum Schluss nicht ahnen, wer der wahre Übeltäter ist, der den Flashdrive versteckt hat.
Ich war erst skeptisch wegen den Visionen, die Rose hat, aber es wurde auf eine nette und nicht übertriebene Art und Weise eingebaut. Toll war auch, wie sich Rose von einem verschüchterten Mädchen, das sich von ihrer Mutter herumkommandieren lässt, zu einer selbstbewussten Frau entwickelt.
Ganz bezaubernd fand ich den Südstaaten-Akzent, mit dem die Geschichte vorgelesen wurde.
Absolute Kaufempfehlung von mir!
