“A very clever wordsmith.” —New York Times Book Review“Ms. Arsenault…reveals strange truths beneath everyday surfaces.”—Wall Street JournalEmily Arsenault’s first two novels, Broken Teaglass (“a beautifully written, engaging mystery” —Dorothy Allison) and In Search of the Rose Notes, received resounding critical acclaim. With her third, Miss Me When I’m Gone, she firmly re-establishes her standing among Laura Lippman, Tana French, Jennifer McMahon, Megan Abbot, and the other major players in the literary mystery game. Arsenault enthralls with this story of what ensues in the shocking aftermath of the sudden, violent death of the successful author of a “honky-tonk Eat, Pray, Love,” when an old college friend of the murdered woman comes across an unpublished manuscript—one which could possibly lead to the writer’s killer. A former lexicographer, English teacher, children’s librarian, and Peace Corps volunteer, Emily Arsenault has found her true calling as an author of twisting, intelligent, emotional, and exceptionally compelling mystery fiction.

But her writing career is cut abruptly short when she d...

5 stars. Given to me by a friend. Thank you very much! Brilliantly constructed. A story within story within story, multiple layers. Sometimes it's easiest to see a solution, the further away one is from the problem. I read this book and wrote the above three months ago. Now I really want to...

Jamie Madden never expected to get this involved when Gretchen Waters’ mother asks her to be the literary executor of Gretchen’s work-in-progress upon Gretchen’s death. Apparently Gretchen was working on the follow-up to her country-music infused memoir, Tammyland, when she fell down the stairs to h...

I could get embroiled in recapping this, so I'm going to try to be brief. Jamie, seven-months pregnant, is named unofficial literary executor when her friend Gretchen dies from a suspicious fall after a reading. Gretchen penned Tammyland -- a honky-tonk Eat Pray Love, of sorts, featuring female co...
