My Review of The First Time I Died by Jo Macgregor
This is one of the best written books I’ve read in a long time (excluding misterio press authors, of course 🙂 ) And the story concept is quite original, a new twist on the protagonist going home to find closure for old unresolved issues.
Graduate student Garnett McGee returns to her hometown for Christmas, and finds herself drawn into trying to solve the ten-year-old murder of her high school sweetheart. But after a near-death experience, she finds herself thinking thoughts and feeling feelings that are not her own, and having flashbacks to experiences she never had.
When she was brought back to life by the paramedics, apparently she didn’t come back alone.
This story is poignant at times, suspenseful quite often, and engaging throughout. And kudos to Ms. Macgregor and her publisher for a practically flawless technical presentation. I spotted no typos and no grammatical errors. Quite refreshing.
I am really looking forward to more Garnett McGee adventures!
The First Time I Died is available on AMAZON.
