I'm trying to mention all of the things that might make this book either annoying or attractive to a reader. It's first person, it's more romantic su..Show More »spense than mystery. There's a twist at the end but it's unnecessary and out of left field.
The heroine is a beat down southern employee of the DMV in a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business. She also is set aside because she has visions that she immediately blurts out to whoever she is talking to when they occur, making the town (for some odd reason) think she is peculiar. On this date she is trying to process a license renewal when she has a vision of herself dead and passes out.
She lives with her abusive mother, has a cute neighbor named Joe and finally decides that she is going to escape from her life of not so quiet desperation. So she sits down with a Wal-Mart slip and makes a list of things she wants to do before she dies which is where the title comes from because the list contains 28 items.
I was enjoying it in a casual way up to about half way through it, knew who one of the villains was because there was no attempt to hide it, and then revelations occurred that just made the whole story less interesting.
This is another book that I'm glad I bought at the reduced whispersync price. The narrator was good but I lost interest after the revelations, skipped to the Kindle version and skimmed to the end to see it was going to get any better. It doesn't.
So, if you like first person romantic suspense with some ESP set in the south and are not too demanding about the suspense part then this is worth the reduced price. It just didn't do it for me. I thought the author got sloppy with the revelations that killed some of the interest I had in the characters up to that point.
This is the first book in a series but I'm not going to be buying any more.
