The first book in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling Rose Gardner Mystery series.

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 twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight 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 fifteen-- 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.

    Cute enough story and good editing but omg ! how much crying can a girl do and still keep the interest of the story hero? Think about it ..... red face, swollen eyes, snot! Way too much.

    This book was free on iTunes and I thought it looked good so I took a chance. Wow, wow, wow, I am SO glad I did! I am hooked on Rose and Denise Grover Swank!! I love the all the characters, their stories, and their mysteries. I love how the author writes in a way that just makes the pages come to life. I love that the story had blood and gore and murder but was still light-hearted and cute! I loved the romance. I love that it’s a little far-fetched but still incredibly relatable. I just LOVED this book!!
