Staff Reviews


I love the character of Riley. She has spunk and would react to these situations much like I would-with a little fear and a lot of ‘someone’s got to do it’. It is a thoroughly pleasurable read. This is the first in the series.

— From Shane's Mystery Staff Picks

Riley just wants to write obituaries, but when her first assignment is the death of a childhood friend, mystery ensues.
