25 THINGS ABOUT ME!
1.) I have a Coke first thing every morning instead of coffee.
2.) I try to read at least one book a day (when I'm not on deadline), sometimes two or three if I have the itch. Reading is one of my greatest pleasures.
3.) I decided to be a writer my freshman year of college. Which, of course, is why I majored in music and art history.
4.) I started writing my first book when I was eighteen. It was about a 30-year-old virgin assassin. Yes, you read that right. It's buried in the far corner of my closet.
5.) I didn't complete my first book until I was twenty-five, but 40 titles since then. I'm 35.
6.) I love being a writer. It gives me an excuse to think about different ways to kill people and to take weird vacations for the tax deductions.
7.) I could eat macaroni and cheese every day. I love it! But my hips do not.
8.) I'm very slow to make new friends. I'm a pretty solitary person, so when you see me at booksignings and conventions, I'm completely out of my comfort zone, which is why it's so nice when I have readers come up and talk to me like they already know me. It puts me at ease.
9.) My favorite cities to visit are: New Orleans--Galway, Ireland--Sonoma--Knoxville
10.) I like Milk Duds more than I probably should. I'm sure one day it'll catch up to me.
11.) I love to travel. I'm perfectly content to wake up on a random morning and say, I'm going here today." And then I'll buy a plane ticket and pack a suitcase. There are still so many places I'd love to see.
12.) I spent a summer in Ireland when I was in college with a random family I'd never met or spoken to before. It was one of the bravest and most adventurous things I've done. A great experience.
13.) I hated high school. If I could go back and do it over I'd try to graduate early and get the heck out of there.
14.) I have a weakness for fast cars.
15.) I performed at Carnegie Hall when I was in college and toured Europe with a percussion ensemble one summer.
16.) I spent four years in college majoring in Percussion. It is now completely useless since I'm writing books full time, but it does give me an advantage when playing Rock Band.
17.) I like gaming. When I take vacations between books, a good part of the time goes to playing RPGs.
18.) The cleanest place I've ever been is Switzerland.
19.) I don't gamble. When I go to Vegas I spend my time at concerts and shows.
20.) Purple is my favorite color. Go Frogs! (TCU alum)
21.) I love a good mystery.
22.) I've had impacted wisdom teeth for years, but I have no desire to get them taken out.
23.) My husband and I are terrible skiers. We know this from experience.
24.) I like to sit down in the shower. I'll often stick my Kindle in a plastic bag and read in there for an hour.
25.) I spend a lot of time thinking of ways to kill people, and I have a tendency to zone out in the middle of a conversation if it's a really good idea.

Dr. JJ Graves became the county medical examiner and mortician for the town of Bloody Mary, Virginia at the age of 30 after the mysterious death of her parents. She has wonderful friendships, but longs for a more fulfilling relationship with marriage and children. After a series of murders which coincide with the appearance of a hunky and famous murder mystery author, JJ falls head over heels, but his appearance may be just a little too coincidental.
By the synopsis, I can honestly say you don't really know what's going to happen, but the journey is terrific. The writing is tight, the heroine is quirky, the hero jealous, and the possibilities endless. I wouldn't have complained if the sex scenes were more graphic than the fact that we were told there was some, but there may be a reason for that. (Note to author, it better be steamy when it counts.) I really wasn't sure where the story was going and the mystery was well... mysterious as well as fast paced. I was a little disappointed towards the end since I really felt JJ had been through quite a bit, but I guess it was a quick easy way to wrap up some loose ends. Most importantly, I was completely bummed that there wasn't another installment for me to read. I went to the author's web site and apparently it won't be available till the fall. If there were any reason for me to knock off stars, which I didn't mind you, it would be that it's more than a year between installments.Read more ›
Not only is she trying to make a living as an Undertaker but she is also the county Coroner. She is barely making enough to stay in business. Thankfully she has her best friend Jake, the Sheriff.
Soon J.J. has more business than she can handle, unfortunately its people she has known for years that are being murdered. She & Jake need to find out who is killing their friends. Is it J.J.'s new boyfriend? Is it someone they've known all of their lives. How well did they even know the Victims? In a town this small, how can there possibly be any secrets?
While i didn't hate this book, it was not an easy read for me. JJ Graves didn't make me want to turn the page. Actually, her life is so depressing that i was depressed reading it.
i'll probably read the next one in the series as i have enjoyed all the other books by this author that i've read. i'll hope that this was a fluke.
if you want to read a romantic mystery that will keep you turning the pages, read Whiskey Rebellion and Whiskey Sour by Lillina Hart. She definitely beats Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. I laughed my a#& off!
JJ Graves is a really great character, even though she has some issues. She is a modern girl and has no problem going after what she wants. What she wants is some smexy lovin from a mystery writer who is visiting. I have no problem with them hopping into the sack pretty much right after meeting. What I did take issue with was the claims of love, that wasn't something I believed on either part. Sure. there was lust and liking, but not love.
The character's had a great playful banter both JJ and her author and her BFF sheriff Jack. The story is all from JJ's POV, so it is difficult to really get a bead on what others are thinking. She is a great narrative, snarky and intelligent.
The smexy action is all closed bedroom door. They get it on and talk about it after but you have to fill in the details for yourself.
The mystery was sort of unsolvable, I hate that!! It was a total Scooby Do moment when the bad guy was revealed. Totally left fiend in my opinion. I usually like to have some sort of idea who done it, but this one was left field. It was an intriguing and dynamic suspense for most of the read. I am just disappointed I did not have the right puzzle pieces to put everything together.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Laura Faye Smith, who has a terrific voice. She has a really swift read, something I enjoy. It really helps move the story along, she adds energy into her voice at all the right times. There is a lot of rapid fire dialogue and quick punches in the narrative.Read more ›
