The Mortician's Daughter: One Foot in the Grave - Mini Review

Her dad’s job is with the dead . . . and he’s bringing his work home with him.

Once again, seventeen-year-old Riley Smith is the new kid in school and her dad’s career has her back to being dubbed a freak. Truth is, she’s a much bigger freak than her classmates think. The only company she keeps these days is the dead who follow Dad home from work. She can see them. She can speak to them. And Fate seems to think she can help them solve their last problems so that they can move on to the other side. Which is odd, because with the loss of her mother and her father’s alcoholism, she’s got enough problems of her own.

But nothing could prepare her for the next tormented young spirit who darkens Riley’s door. The young woman’s death wasn’t the accident everyone believes. Soon Riley finds herself face-to-face with the killer and her only protection comes in the form of another spirit, Hayden, a boy her age with a heart-melting smile and understanding eyes that make her feel safe. If she can escape becoming the killer’s next victim, Riley knows she’ll have to help Hayden move on too, but what if she can’t let him go?


Mini Book Breakdown 

Honestly, I enjoyed this book, let me start by saying that. It was fun, the characters were fine and dandy, the writing flowed nicely but it just felt so... If you're looking for your next paranormal YA read, this is for you. It will entertain you and you'll enjoy it but it brings nothing new to the the table at all. If you just want something to escape into for a while, grab this. If you're looking for a game changer, then you won't like this. I do say that if you love this author, you'll love this one too. It's just as great as any of her other work.

  1. I haven't read a book about the dead ever since The Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting and honestly I've been missing it a bit! I've been looking for a way to fall back in love with paranormal books and this sounds like a good way to get back into it.
