Whoever said life begins at forty must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.
Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.
But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who ’they’ are and rip them a new one.
One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed and breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job—deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.
To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won’t stop giving me the eye. My BFF is thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters… Like Cher, I’d like to turn back time. Now.
No can do.
Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial-sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?
All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis…
Titles in the Good to the Last Death series include – It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis – Who’s Midlife Crisis Is It Anyway? (May 2020) – A Most Excellent Midlife Crisis (August 2020) –
(I’m going to give a fair warning – this story ends on a cliffhanger. It’s well worth it, even if you (like me) absolutely hate cliffhangers, this story is so worth that wait to continue the story. If I’d known I might have waited and bought them all at once to binge – or not, hard to tell now, after the fact.)

Genre: Paranormal Women’s Fiction
Published: February 18, 2020
My Rating: 4.5 stars
It’s a Wonderful Midlife Crisis had me laughing my arse off, and crying my eyes out almost equally throughout this story. There are books that the less said in a review the better, and this is one of those for you really should experience this firsthand, all on your own, for the greatest impact. I had a blast and May is really too far away to wait for the next installment in Daisy’s great undead adventure, but I’ll be right there on release day to gobble up the laughs and the tears once again.
You are about to fall into a world where the ghosts of the recently (or not so recently) departed hang around just a bit longer to get that one thing left undone taken care of, and that is where Daisy, as a Death Counselor, comes into their lives or deaths actually. The thing is, a year ago she thought everything was wonderful with her life, now a year later she’s a widow with a farmhouse full of ghosts who keep losing body parts that need superglued back together again, one sinfully hot lawyer who is not at all what he appears, and more excitement than she ever expected to encounter at this time of her life. You’ll find best friends that you’ll want to adopt, one “The Price is Right” loving grandmother, adorable dogs (who may not be what they appear to be), one evil female with attitude and nastiness overload, and one damned good story.
I had an amazing time in this world and cannot wait to visit once again. So, yes, I’d definitely recommend It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis with the warning to hold onto your sides because you’ll be laughing up a storm while reaching for the tissue box in the next paragraph. I loved it and I believe you would, too. Go on, check it out.
I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. As you read this review It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis may no longer be in KU, but it can be found across all e-reader (and paperback perhaps audio) platforms since it will go out of KU in about 10 days from the release date.
Available in paperback and for the Kindle (my e-reader of choice)
