Pages: 394
A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number!

Whoever said life begins at forty 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…

I always love finding a new author and series that is right up my alley and Robyn Peterman’s series It’s a Wonderful Midlife Crisis is my new favorite. Her characters are relatable, funny, and well written.

Daisy is a 40-year-old widow who works as a paralegal for a horrible woman. Her husband died a year ago in a car crash and she has been stumbling a bit to get on with her life. Her Gram, who raised her, and whom she loves dearly, is in her 90s and living it large in the nursing home binge-watching Bob Barker and The Price is Right. Her best friends worry about her getting out there again, so when a new hottie starts working at her law firm they push her to give him a go but she is less than thrilled about the perspective.

She isn’t sure if she is crazy, delusional or just plain tired, but the dead seem to have taken up squatter's rights in her home and she has no idea if they are real or what they want. She decides to take up their cause because if they really are real, then it’s only the polite, southern thing to do. She can’t really communicate with them but figures the least she can do is super glue on their appendages as they fall off and if that helps them find peace then so be it.

This series is so funny and I have to say I even learned a few new phrases I want to try out.

About the Author:

NYT and USA Today best selling author, Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won't leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. She writes snarky, sexy, funny paranormal and snarky, sexy, funny contemporaries.

Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke with extra ice in a Yeti cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals.

A former professional actress, with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where she can work in her sweatpants works really well for her.
