Witty take on widowhood in LA
In The After Wife, Han...
In The After Wife, Hannah Marsh, a reality television show producer finds her world altered when her husband dies suddenly. Left to pick up the pieces and raise her daughter, her hilarious friends rally around her for support. While she tries to hold on to her life, her job, and her sanity, she questions (out loud) why this is happening to her. She actually gets an answer and a whole new world and insight into life after death opens up to her.
I didn't know anything about this book when I read it and was truly happy with the outcome. Grazer is still hilarious and manages to fit in so many pop culture references and jokes that you feel as if you are reading about friends. This is the time of year when we hear a lot about "beach reading" and I'm not sure how many people actually take books with them to the beach, but this should be one of them.

This is my first Gigi Levangie Grazer novel. Thank you for sen
This is my first Gigi Levangie Grazer novel. Thank you for sending it to me. The After Wife is her most recent novel.
Hannah Bernal loves life, loves her husband, and their daughter. One morning John leaves to run an errand but does not come back. Hannah is in shock and immediately calls the Grief Team. They are her friends which consist of her superior Jay, Chloe the blogger, and Aimee the middle aged actress. They are always at her side ready to offer advice and drama. Hannah loves and depends on her team but she also has developed a special talent. Where will Hannah’s life turn? Will she survive her husband’s death?
This novel is sad. In this novel the main character is devastated with grief. I thought the characters were very interesting and unique. I did find it humorous to read about the antics of the Grief Team. The author writes about a side of LA I have never known. I liked this novel and was very interested to see how it turned out. There is a little more to the title After Wife. Hannah develops a new talent which involves helping people through different situations.
The Grief team concept was very interesting to me. Who would be on yours? What you do you think you would do?
