      Thanks for stopping by, Dolores. One of the things I’ve enjoyed about this series is the look into the life of a caring funeral director. Since we’ll all have to deal with one sooner or later, it’s good to learn that they’re not just scary professionals but compassionate individuals — the good ones. As with any profession, there are the good, the bad and the ugly, I suppose.

    Great review. You said a lot in relatively few words (like mentioning that the POV was first-person). Also, appreciated the spoiler alert re reading the series in the wrong order.

      Thanks, O More Experienced Reviewer! Actually, this book mixes first person (for the heroine) and third (for the other characters’ point of view scenes) and that usually disturbs me but for some reason it didn’t this time. I guess I’m used to it by the third book in the series. Present tense really distracts me, though.

      Yes, some series have minor progressions from book to book, but in this one the changes are significant enough to warrant a spoiler alert!
