What do you get when you cross a hockey mom with the grim reaper?

Me, Lisa Carron. If being a depressed, frumpy, widowed mother of three wasn't bad enough, I just found out I'm a grim reaper. I know what you're thinking. Wow, that's kind of sexy and full of awesomeness. Hardly. Oh, and my clients? Stupid people. Like I don't get enough of that from the living.

Since Alaska is big and angels of death are few, I've been partnered with reaper extraordinaire, Nate Cramer. He's strong, silent, and way too good looking for my recently widowed state. Oh, and he reaps violent criminals, so that should be interesting.

Forget the danger and the hours of self-analysis it will take for me to find my reaper mojo. My biggest problem? Hiding it all from my overly attentive family and nosy neighbors. Now that's going to take a miracle.

Lisa’s husband died a year ago and she had become a single mother of three. Plagued with depression she let herself go and focused solely on her kids. Finally, deciding after a year of moping around she would have a weekend of me time, she found herself smack dab in the middle of a convenience store robbery, where the robber was shot and killed. Next thing she knew, there was a ghost stuck to her and a hotty telling her not to let go.

Boone Brux and Darynda Jones need to get together and write a book. Both have a great quirky sense of humor that would create a hysterical paranormal story. From a mom perspective I totally related to Lisa, from the way she thought because she had kids, to the way she sometimes felt about her mom. Great humor and an easy, fun read filled with grim reapers and the afterlife. I look forward to exploring other books by Boone Brux and the next story in the Grim Reality series.

About the Author:
Boone is a bestselling author in both fantasy and series romance genres. She began writing in an attempt to ward off the slow decomposition of her mental state while taking care of her twin toddlers. It soon became clear that storytelling was her true calling.

Her books range from medieval fantasy, filled with demon's and hot heroes, to humorous paranormal and spicy contemporary romance. Though she loves writing romance, Boone much prefers stories where she gets to kill somebody or blow something up.

She lives in the beautiful and rugged state of Alaska with her husband, two kids, their dog Oreo, and her black cat Velma Underfoot. Not to mention the numerous wild creatures that lounge in her backyard.
