The Obituary Society (The Obituary Society #1) by Jessica L. Randall

Unabridged Audiobook
I have finished listening to the unabridged audio version of The Obituary Society (The Obituary Society #1) by Jessica L. Randall and narrated by Angel Clark from Audible. Listening time for this novel is 7 hours, 2 minutes.

I enjoyed listening to this novel. Angel Clark is a wonderful narrator and I hope to listen to other novels she narrates in the future.

I also enjoyed Jessica L. Randall's writing! The Obituary Society is a well written novel that incorporates humor, mystery, family secrets, and just a small touch of paranormal. I enjoyed the storyline and characters very much. My favorite characters in The Obituary Society are Lila Moore (leading character) and Juniper, who is quite a remarkable young girl with a lot of spunk and a knack for finding things.

The following is a plot summary for The Obituary Society (The Obituary Society #1) by Jessica L. Randall from Audible:
When Lila Moore inherits her grandfather's house, she finds herself in a small Midwestern town where margarine is never an acceptable substitution for butter, a coveted family recipe can serve as currency, and the friend who will take your darkest secrets to the grave will still never give you the secret to her prize-winning begonias.
Lila is charmed by the people of Auburn, from the blue-eyed lawyer with the Southern drawl to the little old lady who unceasingly tries to set Lila up with her grandson. But when strange things begin to happen, Lila realizes some of her new friends are guarding a secret like it's a precious family heirloom. It's a dangerous secret, and it has come back to haunt them. Lila is caught in the middle, and her life may depend on uncovering it. But even if she can, can she stay in Auburn when not everyone is what they seem, and even the house wants her gone?
I am giving The Obituary Society (The Obituary Society #1) by Jessica L. Randall a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. This sounds like such a cool book! I haven't heard of it before but the southern charm and the gorgeous cover sound (and look) interesting. I'm glad you thought it was written well - the characters and the plot really make or break the story (because they're basically 3/4ths of it but still). I've also been meaning to try out audiobooks because of my limited time currently to sit down and read things so perhaps this will be my first audiobook!

    1. I love the gorgeous cover for this book too. It was one of the things that initially attracted me to this novel. The story itself was intriguing to me as well. And, yes, it's filled with plenty of southern charm. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
