"The Good Byline follows Riley Ellison, a smart, quirky young heroine with Southern charm to boot. Riley feels adrift in her small hometown of Tuttle Corner, VA, newly single and bemoaning the decline of print journalism, which has dashed her long-held dream of succeeding her grandfather as an obituary writer at the local newspaper. When her childhood best friend commits suicide with no warning, Julie's grieving family asks Riley to write her obituary. As she investigates why such an ambitious young woman might want to end her life, Riley begins to consider that Julie may have actually been murdered. In the meantime, her love life becomes complicated when her ex -- Ryan -- returns to town just as things are heating up with a hot newcomer--who may have had something to do with Julie's death" --

This is a refreshing and light hearted mystery. The main character is a bit of a hot mess, but that makes her pretty charming. There is some comedy thrown in and I really enjoyed reading this pool side this summer.

A really good mystery... hard to figure out until the end, but even then the obvious was not obvious. I didn't really like the main character, however. She is wishy-washy and some of the writing was weird - especially the online stuff. I think it was meant to be funny, but I was not amused by it. The character does grow, which redeems her, although it's sort of an instant thing at the end. Overall, still a good read. 4 stars.
