Description

The first in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series.

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV is bad even before she has a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, but she's never seen herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered instead of Rose, there's only one thing that's certain: Rose is the prime suspect.

With prison looming, Rose realizes she's wasted her life and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before everything falls apart. From getting cable TV to doing “more” with a man, Rose is well on her way to committing a good number of the seven deadly sins, with the help of her hot and mysterious neighbor Joe, who has plenty of dangerous secrets of his own.

When her house is broken into and someone else she knows is murdered, Rose realizes that dying in the county jail may not be her biggest worry after all in Denise Grover Swank's New York Times bestselling mystery debut.
