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.

Completely honest review here. I LOVED the last 30% of this book. Action, movement, heart, and a little tummy fluttering going on. Just what I want when I dive into a book for the first time. The first 70% was a slow going world building that tended to be a bit too over done for my taste. I almost didn’t finish. I am so glad I stuck with it though. Truly I am. Because if the ending is any indication of what is to come? I will be in for the long haul.

Lisa is a super cute heroin. I also like the hero Nate. I am more interested in where they are going as partners and how Lisa is going to react to things as the underworld is revealed. I wish more was revealed about Lisa’s dead husband. I felt we were left hanging on those details and Lisa should have demanded more answers from the people he worked with.  It just made her seem daft and I don’t think she is.

So, will I be reading the next book? You bettcha. I just hope we get more answers and get on with the cases. Last 30%? Pure gold!

3 Stars with massive potential.
