WINNER of the 2012 Write Touch Readers' Award for Mainstream with Romantic Elements

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.

Prepare to be Addicted!!!

I absolutely LOVE this book and series!!! So glad I downloaded it for free. If I hadn't I would have missed out on a great book/series and a fantastic, awesome author. I have read the series and every book by Denise since. This book has humor, wit, mystery and romance. Rose is such a fantastic character. I love watching her evolve and start standing up for herself. She starts out a very innocent young woman who hasn't experienced much in her life and has let others control her, especially her mother. After seeing a vision of herself dead, she decides that she wants to live life to the fullest. She discovers a lot about herself and that she is stronger than she had thought. And then there's Joe (sigh). I love him and Rose together. Denise does a fantastic job with their relationship. I could feel the chemistry between the two as I read. Denise is now my favorite author. She writes a story that always pulls you in and makes you feel like you are there with the characters. Be prepared for a book hangover!! When you pick up this book make sure you have time to read because you will not want to put it down. And you will most definitely be wanting to continue the series.

Great story, one of ,my first reads on my Kobo last year. Decided I wanted to see where the author was going to take the storyline so I now have the whole series to read. I just finished rereading this one again and I'm still intrigued.

Unexpected surprises, a little intrigue, a confusing love story, breaking away from innocence and a dog. What's not to like?
