Publisher's Summary

Three sips to mind the dead....
Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the attention her grandmother Maylene bestowed upon the dead of Claysville, the small town where Bek spent her adolescence. There wasn't a funeral that Maylene didn't attend, and at each one Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual: She took three sips from a silver flask and spoke the words "Sleep well, and stay where I put you."
Now Maylene is dead, and Bek must go back to the place she left a decade earlier. She soon discovers that Claysville is not just the sleepy town she remembers, and that Maylene had good reason for her odd traditions. It turns out that in Claysville the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected; beneath the town lies a shadowy, lawless land ruled by the enigmatic Charles, aka Mr. D. If the dead are not properly cared for, they will come back to satiate themselves with food, drink, and stories from the land of the living. Only the Graveminder, by tradition a Barrow woman, and her Undertaker - in this case Byron Montgomery, with whom Bek shares a complicated past - can set things right once the dead begin to walk.
Although she is still grieving for Maylene, Rebekkah will soon find that she has more than a funeral to attend to in Claysville, and that what awaits her may be far worse: dark secrets, a centuries-old bargain, a romance that still haunts her, and a frightening new responsibility - to stop a monster and put the dead to rest where they belong.

Although it has an interesting premise and good narration, this book just missed the mark. There are plot points that lead nowhere, obvious villains and characters that lack complexity. Also, there are points where there is so little description it's easy to be confused as to where the characters actually are and what is going on. I think the author was trying to set this book up as the first in a series, but there's not enough here for me to want to read more.

A must read!

I read that Jeaniene Frost recommended this book & being that she's one of my favorite authors I got the audiobook. It didn't disappoint. It has intrigue, without continuous twists and turn some stories have that just drag out the plots only to end as one would guess away. It's a great book with a great storyline and characters. For anyone who loves a mystery or just loves a good book.
