A great series.
Book number four is an emotional send off to the series.
A scary but realistic premise keeps you enthralled until the last page.
Twists and turns are included in the top notch story.
I have appreciated the fact that the lead character Jennifer is a strong independent female without the frequent characteristic of fleeing a bad relationship.
This book was an honest, rich and emotional ride, which I read in (almost) one sitting!
The premise of a funeral home mystery is written with respect which can be attributed to the author's experience.
