What do you get when you cross a hockey mom with the grim reaper?
Me, Lisa Carron. If being a depressed, frumpy, widowed mother of three wasn't bad enough, I just found out I'm a grim reaper. I know what you're thinking. Wow, that's kind of sexy and full of awesomeness. Hardly. Oh, and my clients? Stupid people. Like I don't get enough of that from the living.
Since Alaska is big and angels of death are few, I've been partnered with reaper extraordinaire, Nate Cramer. He's strong, silent, and way too good looking for my recently widowed state. Oh, and he reaps violent criminals, so that should be interesting.
Forget the danger and the hours of self-analysis it will take for me to find my reaper mojo. My biggest problem? Hiding it all from my overly attentive family and nosy neighbors. Now that's going to take a miracle.
This book is beyond grim!
Jumping into Lisa Carron's life was awesome! Yes she just lost her husband a year ago, but she's the type of character that touches your heart, makes you laugh and who you want to have a drink with!
Now that she's reaping souls, she's having to find a way to change her life style without alarming her children or her mother....who let's just say isn't all that pleasant. Not only is her new job requiring her to go out at all hours, but the physical demands are kicking her butt! It doesn't seem too difficult for her to balance, but the first book didn't dive too deep into her actually reaping souls. It'll be interesting to see what hurdles are thrown into her path in the future.
It did set it up for a great book #2 though, there was a lot of great character building, plot lines laid out and little hints to some plot twists.....oh then there was Hal Lee Lewya! He's a porter to Heaven or Hell, and let's just say he doesn't always play by the rules.....
Boone's writing style was fast passed, intricate and perfectly vulgar! I am thrilled to have been introduced to her as an author, and I can NOT wait to see where this series goes!
