Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert, June 14, 2014, e-book edition.
Book description: Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains' lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series.

Book beginning:
I chose the day I would die.
My husband's deep brown eyes glowed as he handed me the cocoa. "Maybe you'll sleep better tonight, Rosey."
I was tied of the charade between us. I never wanted to smile at his dinner parties again. Never wanted to beg him for the children he wouldn't give me. I'd never again clean up his clothes, covered in moonshine vomit.

Page 56:
I slide the gun out of the pocket and into his hand. "Live and Let Die, my dear."

Sounds like an intense mystery. I like the Appalachian setting, and the opening makes me want to know more about the characters' situation.

I do love a good thriller, as this one seems to be. Right now I'm reading I See You by Clare MacKintosh which is really holding my attention. A rare, but good thing! 2016 was terrible for my reading (and blogging).
