Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Death is what grim reaper Lucien Dupree knows best. Or rather, he did until his reaping powers became tragically unreliable. Now he’s living in a self-imposed exile to keep humanity safe. Sure, it’s a lonely existence, but it’s the best thing for everyone. Except him.

Retired genie, Imari Zephara, has found her happy place in Nocturne Falls. Well, as happy as she can be considering the alternative returning home would bring her. Then a dark force rears its ugly head and throws her life into turmoil. Suddenly the only way to save herself is to join forces with death, who turns out to be a pretty amazing guy.

But Lucien’s defective powers might not be enough to overcome centuries of jinn tradition, meaning Imari’s life would no longer be her own. All he wants is to give her the chance to choose her own future. Hopefully, one that includes him. What more could a guy a wish for?

So much better than I was expecting!

It seems to be the running trend with this series that if I'm kind of lukewarm about the blurb I thoroughly enjoy the story and if I'm excited about the blurb I find the story lacking.
This is definitely the former!
The creative use of lore in these stories continues to entertain me. I'm glad there was an explanation about Korras origins too. I was bugging me for quite a while.

Another winner!!!!!!

As always, Kristen Painter brings it. This book is no exception. And as always, B J Harrison brings the characters to life. He is a fantastic narrator. This book is about Lucien, a retired reaper and he meets his love in a Genie. Even though each had their on problems, things have a way of working out.

Love This Team!

Kristin writes in a way that makes you feel like you're there. Paired with B.J as a narrator and you get the sense of each character. They bring the story to life and it's easy to binge listen.

I wish for fish...

Okay Seuss, not Painter, but either way it’s a wish. I was a little confusing in the beginning because in Accidental Wife Greyson mentions Lucian in a way that I expected him to be older, not a hunky youngish reaper, as for Imari, I was a little put off by Harrison’s accent he used for her, I liked her independent spirit and her knowledge of cars. I loved Hattie, I know everyone would. All in all I liked this a lot better than Accidental Wife, but so far I’ve not been truly disappointed to any of Painter’s books.

Great Characters in the Book

One of my favorites.

I love Lucien, the grim reaper and I love Imari, the Gin.

They are both well written, a bit different than some of the other books.

Hattie Dupree is the most adorable character of all.

I’ve already listened to this a second time. Just a happy pleasure of a book.

Reclusive Reaper and Retired Genie Find Love

I was so excited to see a story of Lucien Dupree (Introduced in Miss Frost Saves The Sandman) and Imari Zephara (Introduced in Miss Frost Ices The Imp). Both of these characters interested me when I first read about them and was thrilled to see them get to be fleshed out (pun slightly intended) in this longer story. I appreciated getting more details in the story about both of their conditions and situations and seeing them team up together while navigating their own personal histories and burdens and to build an affection for one another in the process. Again we have some wonderful side characters including the ghost grandma that hangs out with Lucien. We again are taken in this tale to another world outside Nocturne Falls and you face off several tense, though short lived, conflicts that this couple will overcome. This is a tale of two characters that because of their circumstances have in some ways lost hope but seem to find hope renewed in the romance with each other. Light, fast paced, happy ending, with light humor and PG romance this is another solid entry to the Nocturne Falls series. Fans of the books will not be disappointed and B.J. Harrison keeps up his pace with providing wonderful life to these characters.

Death finds love

This was an interesting role on genies and reapers. I liked gettin Omari’s story she was introduced in the Jane frost spin off and such a mysterious character. Lucien is also introduced in the Jane Frost spin off and these two damaged characters help each other move forward with their lives. They both challenge each other and bring life. Imari literally brings color back into Lucien’s world which I loved. These two work very well together and the plot was fun. We also got to see the world of the genies which I found fascinating even if I wanted to punch those self righteous orderly idiots in the face for their stupidity and rigid standards.

Another great story from this universe

These are great stories, set in a quirky universe where vampires, werewolves and genies are normal and live their lives in the town called Nocturn Falls. This time we meet a reaper who has problems, we also meet a genie with problems of their own. This is the story of how they help each other and live happily ever after.
