Aisling Grimlock is living a charmed life...kind of. Things are going well for Michigan's favorite grim reaper, though. She's moving in with her boyfriend Griffin Taylor, her best friend Jerry is doing his best not to melt down and her back-from-the-dead mother doesn't appear to be munching on the unsuspecting populace. Er, well, maybe. All of that changes when another reaping family goes missing and Aisling and her merry band of family and friends are tossed into the middle of a mystery that will have long-lasting repercussions.

Aisling Grimlock should be happy. She’s living with and engaged to the man of her dreams, her mother isn’t eating people...at least out in the open, her best friend is distracted by wedding details...mostly, and there are zombies running around Detroit. Yeah, it’s that last one that’s driving her crazy...especially because no one in her family believes her when she spouts the tall tale. Aisling Grimlock is a reaper in trouble. She’s got big decisions in front of her and nonstop trouble chasing behind. The dead appear to be rising...and they’ve got their eyes on Aisling.

A series of storms hits, and the Michigan populace starts turning downright dangerous. Aisling is convinced the storms are magical in origin. Of course, because she’s prone to theatrical fits, no one believes her...until the storms hit too close to home, and Aisling herself is in danger from the one person she trusts above all others. As a cop, Griffin Davenport is used to putting his life on the line. What he’s not comfortable with is being a threat to the people he’s supposed to be helping. The storms, you see, don’t affect reapers, but those they love are in a heap of danger.

We are hearing (and enjoying) all about Aisling and and Griffin.
I would love to hear about her Mum and Da. When and where did they first meet? Did they "have" to get married and; who approached whom? Wid what to whom. Was Lily a "pure blood" Grim? Was there going to be any additional pitter-patter of little Grimlock feet before Lily "died" to be any addional little Grimlock
I can think of 100 questions without even trying hard.

Come on, Amanda. Let's have some fun.

Tillie Winchester's past is about to come back to haunt her, and what she sees as fun and games someone else sees as a recipe for murder. When a local woman is poisoned at Hemlock Cove's senior center, Aunt Tillie is the prime suspect. Bay, Thistle and Clove don't believe their great-aunt is guilty - although Thistle is fine if the police want to haul her away for a long weekend. Everyone in town is suspicious, but things spiral out of control when FBI Agent Landon Michaels' boss believes he can't be objective where his girlfriend's family is concerned and sends another agent to lead the investigation. The new agent is gung-ho, headstrong, and making witchy enemies at every turn. When the investigation turns to the past instead of the present, Aunt Tillie refuses to talk and a long held Hemlock Cove secret risks being exposed. Bodies start piling up as old grudges overlap with new clues and the Winchesters are caught in the crossfire.

The performer was so poor it made listening to the book almost unbearable.. The story saved this selection from an even lower score from me.
The story fills in a lot of blanks. It also is a good set up for future stories. If you are purchasing this book for a kid who does not depend on story continuity, skip this one.

Christmas is supposed to be a happy time, but Aisling Grimlock is feeling anything but festive. For her, the world seems to be shrinking, and good cheer is hard to find. Aisling’s worry about meeting her live-in boyfriend Griffin Taylor's mother takes a backseat when a new enemy appears, this one haunting Aisling in mirrors and turning up at the exact wrong time. The creature seems fascinated with Aisling - following her from one mirror to the next and threatening her very survival.

Soon Griffin and Aisling will marry and that part of the series will end.

I know much will be answered in books 7; 8; and 9 -. There is still so much left unanswered and so much left to tell.

There could be a spin-off of
Aisling and Griffin's family, and children and a spin-off for their each offer to all of their cousins.

Jerry and Aden's could adopt several children (some gay - some not?).

There can be so many spin offs Amanda M. Lee could be set for life.

l really hope she doesn't abandon these characters and time lines. They are really never-ending.

Aisling Grimlock has a lot going on. Her boyfriend is keeping a secret with her brother. She's finally on her own collecting souls for the family reaping business. Oh, and her mother is back from the dead and may be eating people to keep herself alive. When trouble comes knocking and someone Aisling adores is left injured in the crossfire, she's out for blood and vengeance. Her brothers want to believe their mother is telling the truth but protecting those she loves is more important than buried memories.
