Full disclosure first: JD is a friend of mine. I've read all her books, and she reads mine. The one thing we DON'T do is worry about flattering or being nice. We're honest with each other, even when it hurts.

This is NOT going to hurt.

Let's talk about the premise, first. The main character, Piper Downing, is a mortician. The underlying theme of the book is death, dying and how the living deal with it. Piper doesn't. She thinks she does. She has a carefully constructed veneer of acceptance that h

A lovely book from Justine Dell, I'll be honest, what drew me to it was the fact the heroine of the hour is an undertaker! It's not that I'm morbid or anything, but it made it a stand-out for me, it was something different amongst what is often a sea of same old, same old. The premise was good too - a man who refuses to marry, a woman who won't let herself fall in love - the perfect match, right? Well, without giving the game away, the story unwinds at a suitably leisurely pace - it's intense in ...more

Definitely not my cup of tea. Started off really well, but started taking a nose dive soon after never coming back up. And the ending? Let's just say it was a little to ooey-gooey sweet for me. Basically really cheesy with plenty of eye-rolls thrown in. To each her own.

Squished peas! Justine Dell writes a good book.

How does a grief counselor fall in love with an undertaker?

Absolutely, that’s how.

Piper Downing, sole proprietor of Downing & Sons Mortuary, is done dealing with the living. See, this family business has no family. Her parents died years ago leaving her alone. Her first boyfriend died in high school. After spending the past decade embalming people and arranging funerals, Piper knows that love is just plain selfish.

And Piper doesn’t do selfish.

Good book, despite many of the downers. Piper is an undertaker and runs a funeral home. She has gone through many tragedies early in life, including losing her parents and boyfriend at a young age. She doesn't want to fall in love again. Macy Quinn fights his own personal demons, he is an ex-fighter pilot, honorably discharged after an injury. He lost his wife at a young age due to illness and vows never to marry again. But life and fate have other plans for these two. They meet in not so great ...more

I had the pleasure of reading this book just before it went to print. It has such a wonderful relationship between the main characters. The chemistry, writing, story line, all of it kept me intrigued the whole book. You never really could figure out what was about to happen next. GREAT job Justine Dell, you are one of my favorites!

This book didn't work for me. There were times throughout that I could easily have topped myself it was that depressing. I often find books I read are emotional and make me cry but they don't make me depressed like this one did. Therefore I wouldn't recommend it.
