When reading one of Charlaine Harris’s mystery series earlier last year, my eyes fell on a perfect description for what this type of story is… a “southern domestic cozy” mixed with magical realism. It makes me feel like I immediately have to move to a small town and always have baked goods and sweet tea ready for any surprise guests.
This is the third book in the Obituary Society series and I just have to say that I really really love Jessica Randall’s writing. She is the most underrated author that I know of. Her books have such a quiet and quaint magic to them.
The Obituary Society’s last stand (The Obituary Society-I love it!) follows Juniper (love the name) who we first met in the first book in the series. In the other books there was a quiet ghost or two but all of a sudden there are so many people back from the dead trying to pick up where they were when they died. And the trouble seems to be coming from the pond behind Juniper’s house. Will the town be able to pull together to save itself? SO GOOD! This is one of my favorite trilogies.
