Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected to go to Heaven, or maybe Hell. Instead, she met her fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy complex. Now she's witnessed another murder, and she's not about to let this one go. She's determined to help solve it before an innocent man goes to prison. And to answer the biggest question of all: why the hell did she wake up in Alabama?

My Review:

Collins has a very personable writing style. She really draws you in, and by writing in the first person you become one with the main character as well. She presents her audience with a very entertaining story that combines suspense with quite a few laughs to create a completely unique read.

I quite enjoyed Collins’ method of character development. You get to know everyone on an intimate level leading to a very full story. And the way that you get to know the main character is completely unique, as you get to float along with her as she’s trying to overcome some very unique dilemmas.

As a whole this was a brilliant novel to get to know this author with. I’d definitely recommend it to others and will be looking further into her work.
