    Peyton Farley has settled into a new life in southwest Montana.  Research and fact checking for a local newspaper is a perfectly safe job, or is it?  One morning, Peyton awakens and finds a strange man in lace up work boots who is bleeding out on her kitchen floor.  As Peyton calls 911 from her bedroom, someone is stealing the body.

    Who is the dead man?  Why is he bleeding to death in Peyton’s apartment?  Can one research assignment evolve into murder, embezzlement, betrayal and silence?

    If I Should Die is a suspenseful journey into the lives of many people.  The choices and impacts are repulsive and inspiring.  Silence will never sound the same.

    Peyton Farley wakes up in the morning and finds a dead man in her kitchen. And when she calls 911 and waits in her room covered in the mans blood for the police to arrive. When they do arrive the dead man that was lying on her lenolium floor is gone and Peyton is now a suspect for murder. 

    Whew. Okay. I think this book is pretty good. But I did get confused from time to time. There were so many characters, I just couldn't keep up. The switch from one POV to another wasn't hard to figure out, so there's a plus. Aside from my confusion, I think the book was really good. From the beginning, I was wondering where the heck did this man go? Who was he and how the hell do all these characters connect to each other. 

    I really like that this book is a suspense/thriller. Though, I didn't get much of a "thriller" vibe off of it, I did find myself anticipating what would happen with each page. I can't say I was a big fan of the characters. I think they were just... too dull for me. Not all of them, but most of them. But they did keep the story going. While reading this book, I kept thinking... this is totally like one of those detective shows. Just less "CSI: Miami" and more "48 hours" feel. There was a lot of repetition, which I think could have been left out. I didn't need to be reminded what happened from the minute Peyton opened her eyes up to the point in which she was at, at that moment. 

    I would recommend this book if you're looking for a short mystery/suspense book to pass your time. Definitely had my mind spinning and trying to figure out what the heck is going on.
