Riley Ellison is a young librarian (actually only a library assistant) in Tuttle Corner, Virginia. Riley’s penchant for reading obituarys started because her grandfather was rather famous for writing them. When she is asked to write one for an old, estranged friend who committed suicide things go off the rails. Her friend seemed to have everything going for her and never seemed like the type to take her own life.
As she digs into the suicide, things get messy and dangerous. this was a very enjoyable novel.
