This was a fun fast read. Rose is a likable character who has lived her entire life under the thumb of an abusive, domineering mother. When her mother dies and she becomes the prime suspect, all Rose wants to do is clear her name and keep crossing items off her list of things she wants to do before she dies. This is a charming mystery that keeps the reader turning pages until the very end. This novel is full of action and fun. I look forward to reading book two in this light, fun, mystery series.​

In the beginning, Rose's naïve personality was somewhat endearing, and made for a few laughs. However, as the story progressed, her gullibility became less and less believable, escalating from charming to downright frustrating. As the central figure for this narrative, Rose herself is likeable yet unappealing all at once. The overall plot seemed implausible, relying entirely on coincidence and Rose's "visions" to help her solve the case - a plot in which many aspects were eventually explained in a lackadaisical manner. If you're looking for a lighthearted read with a bit of romance and suspense, I'd recommend checking this out.
