What started out as a book about a woman planning to end her life ended up as a wonderful mystery solved, and a whole lot of good news for good people.
Maggie thinks her life, spent mostly with her co-worker Brenda and thoughts of her regrets from her past, isn't going to get better, and has really passed its high-point already. She considers it a service to end it now, before she's a burden to anyone in her approaching old age.
Without giving too much away, after several humorous side-trips as she tries to meet her goal, she sees another light entirely. Her life, and the lives of those close to her, become more of what everyone deserves.
While I wouldn't have expected a book originally premised on a planned suicide to be quite so enjoyable, I'd highly recommend this book as a way to pass the time, and an uplifting view of what could be, if we just keep pushing on.
