The Obituary Society by Jessica L. Randall

__________R E V I E W__________

★★★

     Honestly, I had my doubts when I began reading this book. It's just not something I would normally read, and I do judge books by their cover, and this one screamed "not you, move along," but I accidentally hit download, and then it took me to the Amazon page, and by that point I saw it was free and figured what the hell . . . who in their right mind turns down free books. Seriously?
     I'm glad I downloaded it, and I'm glad I read it. Other than the confusion surrounding the family tree, this little story was a joy to read. I very much want to be apart of an Obituary Society myself now. Screw bingo.
     It's a quick, and easy read. The type you can read in a day or two. Since it's not a complicated mystery it's really easy to keep up with, though there were a few places that caught me by surprise.

Mystery, Women’s Fiction
When Lila Moore inherits her grandfather's house, she finds herself in a small Midwestern town where margarine is never an acceptable substitution for butter, a coveted family recipe can serve as currency, and the friend who will take your darkest secrets to the grave will still never give you the secret to her prize-winning begonias.
Lila is charmed by the people of Auburn, from the blue-eyed lawyer with the southern drawl to the little old lady who unceasingly tries to set Lila up with her grandson. But when strange things begin to happen, Lila realizes some of her new friends are guarding a secret like it's a precious family heirloom. It's a dangerous secret, and it has come back to haunt them. Lila is caught in the middle, and her life may depend on uncovering it. But even if she can, can she stay in Auburn when not everyone is what they seem, and even the house wants her gone?
