Publisher's Summary

My midlife crisis. My rules. And if it doesn’t put me six feet under, I plan to live it up in style - possibly for the rest of eternity....

After a Luke Skywalker/Darth Vader moment, I discovered I do indeed have a father. He comes with a hell of a lot of baggage, but I’ve decided to keep him. Not only do I have a father, I have a kick-ass new sister, a ghostly family, and super powers to boot. If you add to the mix that I’m dating the Grim Reaper, it’s a freakin’ party.

The only thing standing in the way of my happiness is the Angel of Mercy, though Angel of Misery is more appropriate. She’s responsible for almost everyone I have loved, and who has loved me, being taken away. With the help of family and friends, I will track her down and show her exactly what a perimenopausal hot flash looks like in action.

Job: Death counselor - supergluing ghosts back together and solving their issues is rewarding. For real.

Mission: Bring the seriously evil Angel of Mercy to justice without dying or getting anyone else killed in the process.

Team: A bunch of certifiable Immortals, including one who re-homes vibrators. Yes, you read that correctly.

How to do this? Wing it. Wine, my demon boyfriend, a houseful of deceased squatters, and good friends by my side will help.

As always Jessica Almasy makes me laugh hard and cry buckets of tears all while living how she brings Daisy and everyone to life.

Great book!

This book was really good! It was funny, as I always love when reading a Peterman book! It also had a few new things going on, that amped up the intensity a good bit. There was also a twist at the end that had me buying the next book and downloading it before I was even finished with this one.

As with the previous books in this series, this one is not recommended for a noisy environment, unless you don't mind missing a few whispered words and phrases .

Love this series

I’ve been reading this series as the books come out. I saw this in my Audible part of my membership to listen to so I jumped at the chance. I love the story but I had a really hard time with the narrator. She was too fast and I had to slow her down, then I hated it because any speed didn’t match the excitement of the book. Leaving it as it was, the narration was too fast that I felt anxious over the speed. I don’t know what it was about this narrator but I didn’t feel comfortable listening to it. I may just stick to reading the book. I love audiobooks and listen to many stories as I’m working out and driving. I just didn’t like this narrator. Not so much the voice, just the speed. The story was great and I can’t wait to see what happens, but I think I’ll go back to the book and leave the voices to my imagination.

Excellent series

I always look forward to reading books from Robyn Peterman. I have been happily following this series, usually reading on Kindle. I decided to go the audible route for this fourth book. Sad to say this narrator is impossible to listen to. I slowed the book down to 90 but its still difficult to get past the uncomfortable pauses and punctuation errors within this narration. Please choose a different narrator for future novels Ms. Peterman.

Who wouldn’t!

Robyn Peterman is my go to snarky funny as hell author! I haven’t found a book yet of hers that I did not fall in love with and listen to time and again. She has the steam, the funny, the sass and an actual plot to go with all of it. I love it. And this series doesn’t disappoint in anyway. Not a lot of steam in all, but you never miss it. You’ll not be disappointed and won’t be able to put it down.

Love the series

Love the stories in thes series, and adore the narration. Hate the cliffhanger endings though. Don't really see the need as the story line by itself keeps me coming back for more.

A must read

I love this series! Having already read the books I was looking forward to the audio. I am happy to say that the audio book was fantastically done. I love this narrator. She does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. As always Robyn Peterman writes another story full of sarcastic, witty and stong characters that you just want more of. I laughed so much listening to this. I highly recommend.

It's awesome, you feel me?

I absolutely love Daisy and Gideon. I did miss Gran in this book but the supporting characters having a bigger part in this one is worth the trade. Candy is still my favorite. I'd love to be friends with her vulgar self. Daisy gets to move forward emotionally in this book and Daisy and Gideon get to move their relationship further and im super excited to read Book 5!! I don't listen to audio often but I really enjoyed this one. She did an amazing job bringing the characters to life so I felt like I was in the story. I think I may continue with audio especially in this series

still addicted

usually I become invested in the first three books of a series and become bored and move on to a different series.
Not with this one though every book so far has gripped me from start to finish.
I would leave a better review but I want to start listening to the next book.
