“Fresh and funny, romantic and sunny… a smart cozy series…”

“THE GOOD BYLINE is a breath of fresh air… a pitch-perfect summer read.”

“This was a fun read that was hard to put down, quickly becoming a page turner… a delightfully amusing adventure in the life of Riley Ellison who tickled my funny bone with her internal obit-type dialogue. I look forward to the next book in this wonderfully humorous debut series.”

“Who knew obituaries could be this much fun?”

  • Gretchen Archer, USA TODAY-bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Caper series

“In this irresistible page-turner, Jill Orr delivers a funny, smartly written mystery featuring a charming heroine and appealing setting. I can’t wait to join millennial Riley Ellison on future adventures — and misadventures!

“Jill Orr’s Tuttle Corner is absolutely charming, and you’ll want to hang out more in this Virginian small town with Riley and her cast of friends. The methodical local reporter, Will Holman, is a standout, and here’s hoping he will appear in more of Riley’s mystery adventures. Fans of Hannah Dennison’s Vicky Hill series will definitely devour this debut!”
