TO CATCH HER DEATH (Grim Reality #1) by Boone Brux
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release October 17, 2013
What do you get when you cross a hockey mom with the grim reaper? Me, Lisa Carron. If being a depressed, frumpy, widowed mother of three wasn’t bad enough, I just found out I’m a grim reaper. I know what you’re thinking. Wow, that’s kind of sexy and full of awesomeness. Hardly. Oh, and my clients? Stupid people. Like I don’t get enough of that from the living. Since Alaska is big and angels of death are few, I’ve been partnered with reaper extraordinaire, Nate Cramer. He’s strong, silent, and way too good looking for my recently widowed state. Oh, and he reaps violent criminals, so that should be interesting. Forget the danger and the hours of self-analysis it will take for me to find my reaper mojo. My biggest problem? Hiding it all from my overly attentive family and nosy neighbors. Now that’s going to take a miracle.
REVIEW: TO CATCH HER DEATH is the first storyline in Boone Brux’s new paranormal/UF Grim Reality series focusing on new reaper Lisa Carron and the world in which she has been introduced. As a widowed mother of three, Lisa has floundered in a state of depression and withdrawal for over one year but the day she walks into a convenience store holdup, her life will change forever. With her ability to see the dearly departed, she will embark on a whirlwind training session where the rules and regulations are literally out of this world. Add in a gorgeous and handsome partner named Nate Cramer and Lisa’s new job looks better every day-if it wasn’t for the fact that she has to deal with dead people all the time.
Lisa Carron is a sassy, no nonsense thirty five year old woman who knows a thing or two about death and loss. She is strong but sensitive; sassy and acerbic; and willing to give the grim reaper thing a go.
We are introduced to Lisa’s best friend Vella where much of the sarcastic and witty interplay between two besties is fun and playful: there is also the potential for a love interest in the form of Lisa’s new reaper partner Nate (let’s hope); and we all want to know a little bit more about the big man himself-Constantine.
But there is also the underlying story that runs throughout the novel (and possibly the series) as it pertains to Lisa’s husband and his early demise. There is more to this particular part of the storyline than has been revealed and I am looking forward to discovering the connection.
Boone Brux has written a storyline with a little bit of humor and fun; some paranormal and magical aspects and one that introduces the major players in the world of the Grim Reapers and the worlds beyond.
