Publisher's Summary

The first time I died, I didn't come back alone.

When Garnet McGee returns to her small Vermont hometown for the holidays, she vows to solve the mystery of the murder which shattered her life 10 years ago. But then the unexpected happens - she dies in an accident and gets brought back to life by paramedics. Now she's hearing words, seeing visions, and experiencing strange sensations. Are these merely symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and an overactive imagination, or is she getting messages from a paranormal presence?  

Garnet has always prided herself on being logical and rational, but trying to catch a killer without embracing her shadow self is getting increasingly difficult. And dangerous, because in a town full of secrets, it seems like everybody has a motive for murder.

Fast-paced and riveting, The First Time I Died is a suspenseful and haunting crime story with a supernatural twist.

Wonderful book

When I heard about this book it had me very intrigued.
As a fan of suspenseful reads I loved the sound of this.
The cover drew me in too and the Supernatural twist was the icing on the cake.
This book had me engrossed from the beginning. It kept me turning the pages, I found myself absorbed in the story.

Garent left her small town behind after a shocking tragedy to start her life over.
Years later she finds herself back in the suffocating town she left behind to find answers.

I love these kind of reads where you just don't know who to trust.
This Author did a great job because to me everyone seemed like a suspect. The town and its residents held a lot of secrets.

I really liked the supernatural element to the story it gave it a unique twist so it wasn't just a typical who done it mystery. It definitely made me pause for thought and wonder about the possibilities.

A thoroughly gripping read and I'm looking forward to reading more from this Author.

Emily Sutton-Smith masterful delivery of the story was fantastic.

Tried to like it

Somehow the writing seemed to predictable.

Emily sutton Smith is the real reason I bought and listened to the book.

Even her magnificent skill as a narrator couldn't help the writing.

Sorry. Just my opinion.

A tight tale with many twists and turns

From a mediocre start the depth and pace of this book races away.

Just had to hear it through in a single day.

Excellent.
