"Fresh and funny, romantic and sunny, Orr's book checked three genre boxes for me: a smart cozy series, a Southern small town setting, and, my favorite, a newspaper mystery... I loved the hilarious emails the author interjects into the narrative from Riley's "Personal Romance Concierge" at Click.com."
--Carole Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Jill Orr's delightful, laugh-out-loud debut is the perfect mix of mystery, humor, and romance, anchored by an endearing heroine you can't help but root for. A fun, fast-paced read with a satisfying mystery at its heart. Perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich."
-- Laura McHugh, award-winning author of Arrowood and The Weight of Blood

"Riley 'Bless Her Heart' Ellison is a breath of fresh air--a funny, empathic, Millennial heroine. She kept me turning the pages well into the night."
-- Susan M. Boyer, USA TODAY-bestselling author of the Liz Talbot mystery series

"What a fun, quirky, mystery! This was exactly what I needed to comfort me during these uncertain times.... I can't wait to give this to all my girlfriends for their beach vacations."
-- Whitney Berger, The King's English Bookshop, Salt Lake City

"A blast of fresh air. It arrives just in time to live out its destiny as a pitch-perfect summer read."
-- Columbia Daily Tribune

"An extremely fun read! Regina H., Personal Romance Concierge, may be my favorite new literary character of the decade."
-- Anne Flett-Giordano, author of Marry, Kiss, Kill and Emmy-winning writer of the TV shows Mom, Frasier, and Desperate Housewives

"Orr's debut mystery is a fun romp populated with peculiar characters. Recommended for new adult fans or admirers of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum capers."
--Library Journal

"Jill Orr will make you laugh, make you think, and steam up your reading glasses with this funny, smart, and romantic mystery debut. The Good Byline is an engaging story that will keep readers wondering whodunit and how'd-they-do-it until the very end."
-- Diane Kelly, award-winning author of the Death & Taxes and Paw Enforcement mysteries

"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 writes with a fresh voice, one uniquely clever and gently sardonic without overreaching. Both her Riley Ellison books thus far, The Good Byline and The Bad Break, deliver a brilliantly witty read delicious to consume. The intrigue of mystery pulls the reader deeper into the story, but it is the lovable, flawed heroine who brings the series its heart. In Riley, I see my best girlfriends and myself. A complex character, she is both confident and insecure, overzealous, but with the best of intentions, and uncannily smart, except when it comes to her own affairs. These characteristics exemplify, by far, Riley’s best quality; she is authentic. Jill’s books are a treat to be savored in a window nook with a glass of wine. I look forward with not-so-guilty pleasure to more of Riley’s adventures.
