She was poisoned, her brother is dead and returned to her as a guardian angel and her father is off in la la land in Austin. Her Mom is still half out of it after being drugged with memory loss drugs and her love life is just picking up.
Life with a window into A-world is not as peachy as you'd think it would be. Jenna has some hard life issues to look at, starting with who killed Amber, her brother's angel boss. We meet Bo Shivers (I love that name!) and learn a whole new side to the angel game. Not everything is as cut and dried as people think. There are shades of gray with rules that are sometimes not exactly clear for angels and humans alike.
Jenna teams up with her new boyfriend Ryan and her best friend to puzzle out yet another mystery, landing herself in deeper trouble than ever before. The child Jenna is beginning to grow into a young woman, if she makes it out alive. This book is choc full of Southern fried Texas sass, kolaches, eternal questions and some very zip-tastic one liners that had me snickering into my coffee.
5/5 Fun, humorous and fit for teens of all ages. This book is a keeper and I can't wait for more! ...more

Her Dreaming Anastasia series wowed me with it's mythology and legends and now this wonderful book is doing the same. The Sweet Dead Life is a totally different read and I love it! The funny and quirky voice of Jenna Samuels, the main character, is just perfect. She is a kid with problems, just like most of us. Except she has some doozies! Her mom is kind of missing in action, her dad has literally disappeared, her brother is dead and still hanging around and someone is trying to poison her. Life can be really weird sometimes, especially when you are peeing lime green and feeling like you are going to pass out most of the time.
This book grabbed me right away with the semi dark twisty plot, unusual scenario and I find myself wondering what in the world could make someone pee lime green. Just saying. lol. Joy has done an outstanding job on this book! Jenna is a character I could identify with totally and especially how annoyed she got with her brother. There are some really funny scenes that are full of snark and sheer hilarity. I am still in the throws of reading it, so if you will excuse me, I have a few pages left to go and I am dying to find out what happens! Awesome read! This is one you are going to want on your summer read list for sure!

This book was the perfect ending to this series. I think I shed a tear or two over that let me tell you! Great read. Georgia will always be one of myThis book was the perfect ending to this series. I think I shed a tear or two over that let me tell you! Great read. Georgia will always be one of my favorite succubus characters. Carter, the main angel character will give you a few moments of smirking too. The drama of Heaven and Hell really comes out in this book. A must read....more
