    Description

    The first book of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best-selling series! 

    "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 blog)  

    "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)

    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 of 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.

    Must read!! (again)

    This is my favorite series EVER! I am reading/listening to it for the second time and just like the first time I read it, i find myself having a hard time turning the book off, the whole just one more page would be true if I was actually reading instead of listening. This series has everything, one minute im laughing (out loud), the next sitting on the edge of my seat in fear of what Rose has gotten herself into, and anticipation of how she is going to get herself out of it, the next thing you know your crying with her either tears of joy or heartbreak. Ms. Swank is an awesome writer, but with this series she really pulled out all the stops. I dont know if she ever reads these reviews but in case she does I'd like to say Thank You! I'm an on call hospice nurse and drive (usually at night) to the homes of patients with urgent needs. Your books have gotten me through a lot of rough nights. Im sure you work hard writing books for our entertainment, please know that this hospice nurse appreciates it more than you know.

    Promising premise but one big disappointment

    You know the storyline is bad when the only interesting/fun aspect to the story is the dog with flatulence. Poor research on police procedures; trifling dialogue and unexplained character arcs.

    Great redo with Shannon McManus

    This is a great series! The order list is on Denise Grover Swank Website. Shannon did the later books. The first few books done by a different narrator aren’t as good. I hope they get Shannon to do all of them! So worth purchasing it again!

    Very fun! Loved it!

    This is a fun, entertaining listen! Loved the characters and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. So much of listening to a book, however, is about the narration and Shannon McManus did a great job!

    Books number 2 and 3 have a different narrator and I would suggest listening to the sample before purchasing. Frances Fuller sounds more like a 60 year old than a 24 year old and does not do the story justice at all. I will definitely read these two installments instead of listening to the audio. The good news is that It appears McManus returns for book four and for the remainder of the series.

    In any event, this was the first selection I've listened to by Denise Grover Swank and I'm delighted to have found a new author!

    Didn't work for me

    I usually do not write reviews unless I enjoy a book, but felt I had to throw my two cents in here, just as an alternative voice to the majority of reviews.
    Sorry to say I did not enjoy this book. I found the MC to be an unreal collection of stereotypical southern princess tropes. I found her unbearable, and completely unsympathetic as a character. The additional characters did not seem like real people to me. They were cliches from beginning to end; scenarios seemed remarkably cliched, and the dialogue was unconvincing (I will reference the seen at a dinner post-funeral, and a bowl of flying jello).
    The narrator reads really well, but there was an inflection to her line readings of the MC that contributed, for me, to the unlikeability of the MC.
    No one book fits every person's reading needs, so your mileage may vary. But this did not work for me.

    Fun Listen

    If you're looking for a low energy but sweet story, this is it. Hard not to really like the characters and the good guys are really good and of course the bad guys are really bad. Throw in a sweet rescue dog and you have it all.

    Well, okay.

    Well, crappy doodles this book is good and awful at the same time. Either Ms. Swank is a writing mastermind or she is just lucky that Rose is enduring & annoying enough to keep a person interested to find out what happens next in her insane life. Listen to it or don’t either way you will be happy.

    Awesome book

    Love these books, but this one randomly skips, only a few words and it only happens maybe like 5 times the whole book! Outside of that! Love it!!

    I Couldn't Put it Down

    I loved the book! It was fun and exciting. I am looking forward to the next book. The narrator did a great job too.
