J.J. Graves has seen a lot of dead bodies in her line of work...
She's not only in the mortuary business, but she's also the coroner for King George County, Virginia. When a grisly murder is discovered in the small town of Bloody Mary, it's up to J.J. and her best friend, Detective Jack Lawson, to bring the victim justice.
The murders are piling up...
When a popular mystery writer shows up on J.J.'s doorstep with plans of writing his new book about the Bloody Mary Serial Killer, J.J. has to decide if he might be going above and beyond the call of duty to create the spine tinglers he's so well known for.
Passions are rising...
J.J and Jack discover each victim had a shocking secret, and the very foundation of J.J.'s life is in danger of crumbling when it turns out she’s harboring secrets of her own—secrets that make her a perfect target in a deadly game.
Cliche piled upon cliche
The woman is a slob but the hot man wants her-NO! Neeeeeds her.
How long has it been since she’s had sex you ask? Well if you miss it the first time she says it, you won’t miss it the next 50.
The woman is a doctor but she’s dirt poor because she took over the whole dead people business and now she has student loans over the moon. She also hates the business. If she knew she was going to take it over, though (she states initially that the reason is because men don’t want a woman who smells like embalming fluid 🙄), then why didn’t she plan for it?
The stakes are so low. 1) Will we catch the murderer of someone we don’t really care about? 2) Will she get laid
Did I mention she hasn’t been laid in 4 years?
Her best friend is the hottest playboy in town
She is also weak and dependent unlike the strong and powerful men.
I’m sure there’s more but I’m tired of talking about it. Would not recommend.
