Publisher's Summary

Whoever said life begins at 40 must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.

Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.

But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who “they” are and rip them a new one.

One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed-and-breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job - deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.

To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won’t stop giving me the eye. My BFF is thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters.... Like Cher, I’d like to turn back time. Now.

No can do.

Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything, apparently.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis....

Pwf perfection!

I freaking loved it! I love the book but the narrator is absolutely perfect and I lovvvvvveedd it. I laughed out loud so many times. I love the squatters, the hubs is the best and grams crack me up! There’s so much humor and a wonderful world being built with a paranormal flair that’s not like any pwf I have read before. This genre has brought so much enjoyment and this one is right at the top as one of my faves! The narrator couldn’t have been more perfect for this set of characters and I can’t wait to dive into books two!!! I

I love reading the book dislike the audio

It’s not the author’s fault as I loved all the books in the series but the narrator ruined all of the audio versions. I couldn’t get past the first few minutes of any of the audio books. What a waste of money and credits. Just hope Robyn doesn’t use this narrator in any of her future audio books.

Out of this world

Escape to a world that is beyond this life where Daisy can not only see ghosts, but talk to them and glue them back together.

This wildly interesting and funny story brings Daisy into the world of the unknown along with the new lawyer in her firm Gideon who isn't what he seems either and a whole list of interesting and outrageous characters that will give you hours on enjoyment.

Jessica Almasy is a wonderful narrator who brings the characters to life and adds an enormous amount of depth to the story making it come alive for you.

Was Never an Audible fan before this!

I have to be honest, I wasn't one to listen to audio books before now. I absolutely love to read. I will read at least 3 books a week, but I hadn't tried audio before. I was afraid it wouldn't sound like it does in my head. Or the inevitable would happen where the movie ( in this case audio) didn't live up to the book. I can legitimately say THIS BOOK IS PHENOMINAL! The way Jessica Almasy narrates this work is nothing short of amazing. You will laugh and even cry through out the whole thing. The story is amazing, the characters are some of my favorite ever! I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. Daisy is having a rough 40 to put it mildly. Widowed, seeing dead people, an evil coworker and now a hot as hell new lawyer with a bit of an attitude problem. She never has a dull moment. She legit thinks she's loosing her ever loving mind only to find out from her gram that she comes from a long line of death counselors. Of course this opens up a whole new can of worms in learning that heaven and hell do exist along with things or should I say people like the angel of death, angel of mercy, along with Arc angels and a whole slew of other interesting beings. Even though this story is narrated by one person the inflection she does for each character brings them to life individually and you won't be disappointed. I would recommend this book to any and everyone! You need this in your life and won't be able to wait for the next ones!

Hilarious!

I loved this book. A couple of the scenes in it are some of the funniest scenes I've ever read! The main character has a wonderful personality and struggles with things that I relate well to.

The narration was excellent. I'm not sure I would recommend this book for a really noisy environment. But, if you do, I don't think the whispered words here and there are essential, so you would probably still understand each scene anyway.

Don't let a noisy environment keep you from this book! It is a side-splitting, fun escape!

The banter.... gag

The female character is the same as so many in this genre. Assuming she is always right, constantly jumping to conclusions, annoying false bravado. She is incapable of having a conversation beyond the trivial. She asks questions, and then expresses fear of the answer so resides with half truths and whatever she has determined the answer will be.
Her entire relationship with every other character is completely one sided, as she devises their thoughts and words based on her interpretation of their actions. She isn’t funny, she has no depth, she is a moron. She has the emotional maturity, intelligence, and vocabulary of a pre-teen. I couldn’t even listen to the last 30 mins, I was so annoyed.
This book was written, presumably for women over 30, but would be more enjoyed by teens. I’m really sad I wasted a credit.

gripping

for the first chapter I thought I had bought the second book as so much was happening right from the get go.
Once you have got to grips with the characters and what is going on this book has to gripped and there is no stopping.
I am lucky to of only just found this book as it ends on a cliff hanger so I can buy the second.
I loved the banter and at times had me laughing out loud.
I thought the narrator did a good job too.
who would of thought ghosts and the grim reaper could be so entertaining.

Perfect

Wow! I wasn't sure about buying this one but wow, it's good, The writing flows effortlessly, it's fun, the characters are wonderful and I think I've listened to it at least four times. I've got the whole series (so far) and they're all as good as the previous ones.

I love the quirky writing style. The narrator is perfect for the books.

Overall? Just so much fun.

Ridiculously fun!

I enjoyed the hell out of this book! It's a fun and unique storyline. The narration is great, some slightly stilted bits but WELL and truly made up.for by how well she brings the characters to life.

Couldn't stop listening!

So I started listening to audiobooks to help me get to sleep. That worked on most books, but this series had me hitting the 30 mins more button way too often I listened in the car at every chance too! I found the PWF authors through Facebook and adore the idea of the magic awakening not in some young thing, but in a mature woman who has seen some stuff. Robyns world she has created is no disappointment! I love all of the characters (some certainly took some warming up too!!) I have listened up to book 6 now and am missing my new "friends" until next time. The narrators' style did take a little getting used to for me, but once I did I loved her. She caught the enthusiasm of the characters beautifully.
