My life as a grim reaper has weighed heavily on the lonely side here in West Virginia, but things are looking up. I'm finally dating Jax, the man of my dreams, and I have high hopes for a happily-ever-after. Unfortunately, he and I are about the only two that are excited about our burgeoning romance.
Our families have been feuding for decades and none of them are very happy that Jax and I are getting serious. The harder I try to keep my private life private, the more they pry. Even the dead are rising from the grave to put in their two cents, and there doesn't seem to be anything I can do to stop this family drama. One thing is certain, somebody is about to get reaped.
This series really has me laughing. Brux does a great job of creating a world in which shifters and all manner of supernatural creatures coexist, albeit somewhat difficultly.
Poppy is a great character and I love her sense of humor. She seems to find herself in the most irritating of situations. Jax seems like a decent guy. Both of them have nosy and overbearing families, which, I think, many people can relate to. I do love how loyal Poppy and Jax are to each other, but I do worry they are moving too quickly in their relationship.
Dearly Departed is a really short read, which I’m not a fan of because I always wish I had more of the story. So, the only negative thing I can say is that I wish it had been longer. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
If you haven’t started this series, it’s not too late to get started with Reapercussions. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy books with a sense of humor and some lovey times.
