Isabella “Izzy” Sage spent her formative years on Belle Isle in Detroit, playing next to the gate that separates the living from the dead as her parents drew a paycheck from the grim reaper council. Then the impossible happened, tragedy struck, and Izzy found herself an orphan. Her grandfather took her away and raised her among the Bruja in New Orleans, although her heart always longed to return to the gate...which felt so much like a part of her. Now, as an adult, Izzy has worked her way up to gatekeeper status, and she’s back in the place her childhood ended.

Weddings are supposed to be all about white veils, flowers and happily ever after. For Aisling Grimlock, she wants the ending … but the journey isn’t quite finished. Ever since her mother returned from the dead almost a year prior, Aisling has been riddled with doubts. Is Lily Grimlock a killer? What does she ultimately want? Does she have anyone’s best interests at heart? All of those questions are about to be answered, although the person providing the information is one Aisling thought she would never see again. Another woman, another time, another mother.

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.

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.

Handsome vampire Luke Bennett was out at a bar and looking for a good time. Luckily for him, the gorgeous Kimberly Moody was looking for the same. A night of no-strings-attached fun was just the thing Kimberly needed after a stressful week at work. Luke's status as a vampire was just an unexpected bonus for her. However, that single night of fun was soon to become the complete opposite as Kimberly found she was somehow pregnant with the vampire's baby.

I tried to give this book a chance but, I just couldn't. The author needs to pull this book, re-write it with the same storyline in mind, change narrator, and resubmit.

Running late to the bakery one foggy morning, Audrey strikes a vehicle. Emerging from her car into the fog, she discovers she hit a motor scooter. But there’s no rider in sight. Just blood. The absence of the driver is a mystery, especially to Sergeant Jack Mansfield, the detective and church member responsible for firing Audrey's pastor husband from his pulpit. The scooter belongs to Jack’s wife, Julie, a teacher at the local high school, who has vanished… like morning fog.
