Josiah Reynolds and her girlfriend had just seen a movie and were going home when they discover a dead body. Why does this always happen to Josiah?
She learns the dead man was a reporter and a stranger to the Bluegrass. The police believe his death is due to a botched robbery, but Josiah thinks otherwise and begins snooping around.
When Detective Drake tells Josiah to back off, Josiah's forensic psychiatrist boyfriend, Hunter, comes to the rescue and hires her to help investigate the case. Now Josiah has carte blanche to all the reports concerning the case, and they bear out her theory of what really happened to the dead reporter, but no one will listen.
Josiah makes it her mission to unearth evidence that will prove her theory. She begins the dangerous game of finding out the truth in a world that hides its secrets among antebellum mansions, oak-cured bourbon, and million dollar horses grazing in emerald pastures. This is the world of the Bluegrass—a world of wealth, privilege, and now murder!

Reviewed by Tiffany Ferrell for Readers' Favorite Death By Deceit: A Josiah Reynolds Mystery 13 is written by Abigail Keam. When coming back from a movie, Josiah Reynolds and her friend Veritas Noble discover that her car had been hit by a driver who drove off. Noble didn’t think much of it until she went to open the trunk and found a body. Not the first time being interviewed in a murder case, Josiah does her own investigating and discovers that the deceased man's name was Shelby Carpenter and that he was a popular freelance reporter. With not much help from the police, Josiah decides to head up her own personal investigation and discovers more than she bargained for. Her snooping finds her spying on one of the most wealthy families that she knows. With the help of her detective boyfriend Hunter, as well as other friends along the way, Josiah is bound and determined to blow this case wide open. This is my first time reading one of Abigail Keam's books and I must say it was refreshing. As the subtitle says, a humorous cozy with quirky characters and Southern angst. I really liked Josiah’s character and personality. She has an older version of Harriet The Spy type of feel to her and you find yourself truly invested in her and the situations she finds herself in. The story was quick-paced and right to the point, which made it so easy to get engrossed in. Josiah’s a very relatable woman and of course who doesn’t want to be an ordinary person solving super cool crimes? The Nancy Drew of our day! Death By Deceit has definitely made an impact on me. I will be searching for more of Keam's work to read.
