*~The Mortician’s Daughter: One Foot in the Grave by C.C. Hunter~4 Stars~*

I want to give a huge thank you to NetGalley and EverAfter Romance for providing me with an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate this opportunity.

Publication Date: 10/31/2017(Today!)

Synopsis: Riley Smith is not your average 17 year old high school senior. She has what some may call a gift and others may call a curse. Riley sees dead people. Since Riley’s father is the town’s mortician the dead seem to follow him home to Riley, where Riley helps them with whatever they need to cross over. Dealing with a new town, new school, her dad’s alcoholism, missing her dead mom and two new troubled spirits that entered her life, Riley feels like she’s losing it.

The two new dead people in her life are different than the others that she has encountered. Hayden is a beautiful guy and is the same age as Riley. He also has abilities that other ghosts don’t have such as; Riley can kind of feel Hayden’s touch and he’s not listed in the obituaries. Abby is a very tormented soul. Some days Abby is dressed up nice because of Riley’s dad, others she looks beat up and suffering. Riley also has the ability to feel the spirit’s emotions and she realizes Abby’s death was more tragic than a mere accident!

Hayden vows to help Riley find out what happened to Abby. The only problem is the increasing feelings that bubble up between the two. Riley knows she shouldn’t fall in love with a ghost but Hayden’s soul is so beautiful and kind.

While facing all her obstacles, Riley meets strong willed classmate Kelsey. The two girls share grief and other issues and become instant best friends. The two girls battle high school drama, boys and hard emotions.

Will Riley be able to help Hayden and Abby cross over? Will Riley be able to discover what really happened to Abby? Will Riley be able to let Hayden go and set him free and vice versa? Will Kelsey and Riley be able to cope with life and deep rooted issues? Read this YA Paranormal book to find out!

Review: OMG! I loved this book! One Foot in the Grave made me smile, laugh, made the hairs on my neck stick up, and warmed my heart. I loved the characters in this book! Riley was a down to earth girl and knew she has flaws but loves others intensely. Riley is such a compassionate person. Kelsey was strong willed and loving. Hayden was another fantastic character and made me wish he was alive as well! He was so open minded, compassionate and just wanted the best for Riley even if that meant setting Riley free!💖 The reason I am not giving this book 5 stars is because the ending. The ending left me with a cliffhanger and I admit, I can be impatient! At times, the story felt like there was a tad too much going on but overall still was a smooth and well rounded story. This title was perfect for the holiday! I highly recommend this title and can’t wait until the next one is released!!!

Hello lovelies! I'm Danielle a.k.a Dani and I'm a huge Book Dragon! I say Dragon because I'm majestic asf not because my derriere is large;) I am a part of my local Friends of the Library where I get involved with reading communities,author signings, author interviews and book sales! I am obsessed with BOOKS! I am a proud bilbliophile and love reading so much because it is what saved my life! I was in a very dark place and stuck in bed because of my chronic illnesses until I started reading faithfully. Reading allows me to go on so many journeys when I am stuck where I'm at. Reading allows my free spirit to be free! I love everything about books from the way they smell and feel to the way they give me the ultimate escape from reality. I love to review books and get recommendations for future reads. I'm a member of NetGalley and review books on different platforms as well! I love meeting new people and finding the beauty in everything. I love all types of books from wet my pants humor (thanks motherhood), to I love you so much that I want to kiss your face romance novels, to the hairs sticking back of my neck suspense and even some books that might wet your panties in a more erotic fashion! I am a stay at home mom for the most part. I have some awesome kids whom I passed on the joy of reading. I love spending free time to volunteer at small struggling bookstores and donating books to the less fortunate. I have an associates degree in Psychology and starting on a degree in Literature in 2018. My goal and dream is to become a bilbliotherapist. So I can share the love of reading with those who are suffering physically or emotionally. I am also random, sarcastic and very open minded. There is no subject that is off limits for me and I promise to listen with an open mind! I hope you enjoy my blog and would love some recommendations and feedback! I am looking forward to meeting fellow book lovers, book molesters or anyone else who is interested! I blog about other things besides books occasionally as well. I love reading and following different blogs so I can interact with new interesting people. Love you guys and thanks for checking out my site! i appreciate all my followers, any feedback or recommendations!

  2. Cliffhangers can be soooo annoying at times. I hate/love them. I don’t mind waiting a bit for something to continue…but a whole year or even longer makes me hate them with a vengeance lol. This does sound like a terrific book though. I have not read a lot of YA novels (so far only Hunger Games), but as with everything I have a large backlog on these as well. Great review, and am glad you are doing better (as I have read in the above comment 😊).
