The Reluctant Reaper by Gina X. Grant

Looking for a little zany adventure into hell? Me neither but as far a story goes this is a quirky little book that may entertain you. I call these “waiting room books.” No thought process no plotlines to keep up with. Just frivolity and a quick read

Kristy a very na├»ve girl finds herself traveling into hell with the grim reaper.  Ultimately she wants to get back to her life as she is somewhere in a coma. Kristy untimely death/coma was an accident and she needs to figure out how to fix it.  Along the way we meet a host of characters.

I chuckled a few times but sadly not enough. Some of the one liners had me rolling my eyes. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a horrible book. I do see great potential in this series. I just won’t be along for the ride.

2.5 Stars (KT Book Reviews rating of between I was OK and I liked it) Not bad really. So if you need a no brainer while waiting in line give it a go.

From the cover……..
Life for Kirsty d’Arc might not be perfect, but it’s far from hellish. She likes her job, has a great BFF and truly admires Conrad, her boss. But when she dives in front of a lunatic’s blade to save him from certain death, she finds out Conrad isn’t so admirable after all. In fact, he’s traded her soul to the Devil!

While her body lies comatose on the Mortal Coil, Kirsty’s spirit is dragged straight to Hell…which is not quite the fire-and-brimstone abyss she’d expected. In fact, the place is quirky, wacky, and not without charm. Desperate to reunite body and soul before her time runs out, she seeks out allies, earning the friendship of a powerful drag demon, a psychic server and most importantly, Hell’s civil servant. But what of her growing attraction to Dante, the sexy Reaper with a flair for romantic language—can she forgive him for scything her soul?

Stuck in the netherworld, Kirsty vows she’ll do everything on her postmortem bucket-list, starting with getting her life back and ensuring that Conrad has Hell to pay!
