Enjoyable, clean series.

This is the first book of three. At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but the more I listened, the more I enjoyed. It is a wonderful, clean series that makes you think a lot about life. Make sure you listen to the second and third book in order.

The second book is "She Always Wore Red." The books follow on the heels of each other, and carry you along life's ups and downs.

Much Better Than Expected...

I love this novel. This is different than the normal reading fare but I do have to say I've enjoyed it. The narration is well-done in this unabridged edition.

Jennifer's ex-husband cheats on her and then files for divorce. Since they both work in politics and he is the favored one, she is having a difficult time landing a job. She along with her 13-year old son and 5-year old son are living with her mother when they get a call from an out-of-town lawyer telling her (Jen) that she had inherited a funeral home.

They travel to Florida to see the home and to get it ready for sale. They are forced to stay there overnight since there are no available hotels or motels in the area. The place has a resident embalmer -- an old man who has living quarters in the old Victorian. When she tells him of her plans to fix up the home and sell it, he requests that he be allowed, in the meantime, to resume the business. To make the many costly but necessary repairs to Fairlawn, Jennifer comes up with the idea to turn the home into a temporary bed and breakfast, much to Gerald's dismay.

I like this part: When the realtor comes with a doctor and his wife for a house showing, Clay stays behind. Okay, so you'll have to read it, to find out what happens.

In "Doesn't She Looks Natural," we learn some about the funeral business, how the bodies are prepared for viewing. In this setting, many of the clients are long-time friends and neighbors of Fairlawn's residents. As Gerald says "Funerals aren't for the dead; They're for the living."

Awesome series!

I have listened to the Fairlawn series more times than I can count. It’s my go to audiobooks when I’m waiting for my next credits. All three books of the series is amazing!
