Publisher's Summary

My midlife crisis. My rules. And if it doesn’t put me six feet under, I plan to live it up in style - possibly for the rest of eternity....

After a Luke Skywalker/Darth Vader moment, I discovered I do indeed have a father. He comes with a hell of a lot of baggage, but I’ve decided to keep him. Not only do I have a father, I have a kick-ass new sister, a ghostly family, and super powers to boot. If you add to the mix that I’m dating the Grim Reaper, it’s a freakin’ party.

The only thing standing in the way of my happiness is the Angel of Mercy, though Angel of Misery is more appropriate. She’s responsible for almost everyone I have loved, and who has loved me, being taken away. With the help of family and friends, I will track her down and show her exactly what a perimenopausal hot flash looks like in action.

Job: Death counselor - supergluing ghosts back together and solving their issues is rewarding. For real.

Mission: Bring the seriously evil Angel of Mercy to justice without dying or getting anyone else killed in the process.

Team: A bunch of certifiable Immortals, including one who re-homes vibrators. Yes, you read that correctly.

How to do this? Wing it. Wine, my demon boyfriend, a houseful of deceased squatters, and good friends by my side will help.

Great book!

This book was really good! It was funny, as I always love when reading a Peterman book! It also had a few new things going on, that amped up the intensity a good bit. There was also a twist at the end that had me buying the next book and downloading it before I was even finished with this one.

As with the previous books in this series, this one is not recommended for a noisy environment, unless you don't mind missing a few whispered words and phrases .

Love this series

I’ve been reading this series as the books come out. I saw this in my Audible part of my membership to listen to so I jumped at the chance. I love the story but I had a really hard time with the narrator. She was too fast and I had to slow her down, then I hated it because any speed didn’t match the excitement of the book. Leaving it as it was, the narration was too fast that I felt anxious over the speed. I don’t know what it was about this narrator but I didn’t feel comfortable listening to it. I may just stick to reading the book. I love audiobooks and listen to many stories as I’m working out and driving. I just didn’t like this narrator. Not so much the voice, just the speed. The story was great and I can’t wait to see what happens, but I think I’ll go back to the book and leave the voices to my imagination.

Good story, horrible narrator.

I've read these books and truly enjoy them. I started listening to it and couldn't take it. The narrator reads so fast with no pauses that it is hard to follow along.

Love this series

Great flow, great story! I love the characters and each quirk they have.
Only flaw that ever bothers me is the repetition of lines, and the rehash of prior books.

Loved it

it is starting to get a little repetitive. I can see the beginning of each book the first chapter going over what happened, but it repeats a lot throughout the whole book! I still love the characters and the story is pretty good but a little less repetition would be perfect! the narrator is terrific!

Couldn't even finish this one...

If you've made it this far in the series, you know the books become less well-written, not better.... which doesn't even make sense to me - unless they were all written as one big book, then split apart. An author generally gets better with each book... but not here!

Yeah... don't do it - you can't get back the time you'll waste. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Enjoyable

I have really enjoyed listening to the first 4 books in this series. Different, funny and addictive. A great mix of characters and all thoroughly entertaining. I’ve loved that they were free books. I hope the rest of the series will be free soon.

still addicted

usually I become invested in the first three books of a series and become bored and move on to a different series.
Not with this one though every book so far has gripped me from start to finish.
I would leave a better review but I want to start listening to the next book.

Amazingly awesome series!

For a book in my plus catalogue, this has been one of the best stories I've listened to in a good long while. Characters well developed, lots of lol moments, narrator is kick ass. can't rate it highly enough! Also I have to say a lot 9f really good books get ruined by having them try to be exotic in nature this book doesn't attempt it which is actually a breath of fresh air that it's not about a woman who's hung up on some unattainable male. Loving it so far.

Such an awesome story with a cliffhanger ending I screamed Nooo at I may have also cursed Robyn peterman lol come on I need to know what happens next.
As always Jessica Almasy makes me laugh hard and cry buckets of tears all while living how she brings Daisy and everyone to life.
