Rose works for the DMV during the day and cares for her nasty mother at night. We find out early on that she has "visions" that are rather innocuous until she has a vision of herself dead. She quickly makes a list of twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her death. Imagine her surprise when it is her mean mother who winds up murdered instead. Of course Rose is a prime suspect.
As the story progresses, her house is broken into and someone else she knows is murdered. She has to solve this mystery, AND fulfill her twenty-eight wishes. Her new next door neighbor, Joe, is helpful, and the story has some funny parts. Rose gets into several predicaments and sometimes envies the life her married sister lives, but on the whole she seems to handle herself pretty well. Her search for romance adds the touch these kind of mysteries call for, and the conclusion is somewhat satisfying.
I might try to read the last book in the series to see if Rose and the writing itself have matured, but I am not sure I want to read those books in between.
