Penny Perkins, journalist, upstanding citizen, dutiful bridesmaid, just killed her date. Smashed him on the head with a bottle of Misty Mangoberry Merlot.
She is tipsy and panicked. She is wearing a heinous pink bridesmaid dress that makes her irrational. Penny knows she should call the cops and explain her date’s grabby hands, his crazy eyes. She should cry self-defense. She should do a lot of things she doesn’t do.
Things are about to get real complicated for Penny, as her dead date’s life unravels into a mystery the deeper she investigates. Death just happens to be her job.
She’s the newspaper’s obituary writer.
What they’re saying about it:
“OBITCHUARY is a near-perfect blend of sweet, tart, and salty. It’s an excellent antidote to the stresses of everyday life, a perfect book to curl up with on the couch when the economy or politics have got you down.”
“Stephanie Hayes has an ear for dialogue and a deft hand with humor in the laugh-out-loud mystery, Obitchuary. …The humor is everywhere in this book; found in Penny’s relationship with her family, her relationship with her awkward coworker, even in the murder Penny commits. Hayes has a sense of humor that runs along the lines of Janet Evanovich.”
