This is a very off beat funny series that covers a subject we sometimes tend to avoid. I would recommend these books but suggest you start with the first one "Doesn't She Look Natural" to set the stage.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Good to the Last Page
This was a book I did not want to begin reading because I KNEW that when I finished it, I'd feel bookless. As long as I put off starting it, I knew that I had a treasure waiting. I was correct. It's the third book in the Fairlawn series, and I loved it. Angela Hunt has the ability to write a trilogy so that each book can be read alone and understood perfectly; however, when all are read in order, a deeper experience awaits the reader. I've finished this third in the series now, and I feel like a spoiled child, stamping my feet. I don't want this series to finish--ever! I want to move to Mt. Dora and have lunch with Jen! I want to join the ladies and Joella at the Biddle House for a bit of talk; maybe I'll even put on a red hat! I want to watch Kristen grow into the woman God intends. In other words, the characters have come alive for me.<BR/><BR/>This author teaches with her writing. There are so many details; her research amazes me. With this series, I have learned a good bit about the funeral industry, and gained a sense of appreciation for the work of people like Gerald and Jennifer. Angela Hunt aptly handles what could be a touchy subject and makes pleasurable reading. The story takes the reader along to a convention for people in the industry. All sorts of tips are given. Why, I even learned how to apply mascara!<BR/><BR/>In addition to learning, this volume contains other things that appeal to readers. There's a need for tissues because of the tears. There's romance. There's humor. (The Living Funeral is hysterical.) I cannot recommend this series high enough. The author is at her peek!<BR/><BR/>Although I have many other books waiting to be read, there are no more Angela Hunt books waiting for me. So I'm bookless. Now what?Was this review helpful?
