Overview

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.

    I love paranormal books that make me laugh. Lisa is a funny, sarcastic and adorable, well developed character. The action of this book really picks up in the last quarter. I wasn't ready for this book to end, and I'll definately read more.

    Great read

    Parts were serious like adapting to a new reality and family concerns. This author has some serious skills in parts I laughed so hard the neighbors must think I've gone nuts.

    Oh my goodness! Small spoiler alert. My first book by this autho

    Oh my goodness! Small spoiler alert. My first book by this author and I am hooked. I am reading the anthology that has a short story from this universe in it (Paranormal Nights) and cannot wait until the next Lisa story comes out! Lisa is a "fluffy" mother of three who was recently (1 year exactly) widowed. Little does she know that she's a descendant of Charon, her hubby was a reaper, and so is she!! Interesting chemistry with her partner, I cannot wait until the past (partner with her hubby) and present (with her) are explored more. Plus many teasers have been set up to draw you in for the next book; like Hal the porter. I loved this first book in a new series and am looking forward to the next.  I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Lisa Carron has just been existing since the death of her husban

    Lisa Carron has just been existing since the death of her husband a year ago. After all, she has three children to raise and that takes all of her energy. It's just one long day after another, but she won't believe how her life will change. She is at a convenience store during a robbery. Things go downhill fast. The robber is killed and she accidentally activates her grim reaper skills. Is she losing her mind? No. Nate explains that she is a reaper. Can this get any crazier? It can and it does. Boone Brux has written a very humorous paranormal which is the first book in her Grim Reality series. Nate may be handsome but he doesn't believe that Lisa has the necessary skills, but she'll show him. Lisa comes into her own with her snarky attitude and mother's intuition. The dialog between these two is sarcastic, sharp and so funny. I enjoyed all the characters. I'm looking forward to more adventures from Lisa and Nate.

    Boone has again shown what an amazing author she is! This is definitely a feel good book to come home to when you've had a bad day. Well written, great flow and humor...what more could a person ask for?




    Lisa Carron, a woman learning to live life again and how to function after the death of her husband, learns she is a Grim Reaper. Considering all she has been through, she has the best snarky comebacks and attitude. The way she puts Nate in his place when she thinks he needs it will have your sides hurting from laughing. I really look forward to more to come in this series!

    What a fin little crazy story. :) This one was fun, and real, and goofy, while being so believable! The main character is a mother, has financial issues, maybe a little chubby, and pretty much uses ice cream as a cure-all. Heh, well it’s not coffee hahahaha though I love my coffee!! She’s takes care of things and makes sure that things keep on, keeping on. AND she takes a job as a REAPER. It’s kind of hilarious. And things don’t follow the exact rules that a lot of others do which make it less predictable, therefore more likable for me :)  




    Lisa is just funny, she has some great little comebacks, and she’s chubby like me :) YAY! LOL He’s got some serious marital problems, she’s got teenagers, and she needed this job. She has some issues with rule following and authority, so let’s just say she’s got a big ride ahead of her. AND now she has a new partner, named Nate, who has a raven. Yep, the bird. 




    There’s some excellent side characters. I LOVED them. If Lisa wouldn’t have been such a funny character, I may have said some of these secondary characters will rival her for my favorite. There’s some great plot lines, and things that are happening on the sidelines with the reaper part. There’s a really good, fun, wonderful story here. It’s just a fast paced entertaining read. And the writing is so well done, that you’ll be giggling out loud with people looking at you like you’re nuts! I recommend this one for when you just need something to pick you up. A FANTASTIC FUN FILLED 5 PAWS!!

    This is a wonderfully funny book! I couldn't stop laughing while reading about this widowed mother of three that suddenly finds out that she is a grim reaper of all things! She decides to just go with it, since it is a paying job after all! Plus, of course, she would be doing a great service to the world. 




    The author has captured my attention with this book, and I look forward to reading more of her work. I can't wait for the next book in this series!

    Boone Brux saved me from my waiting room boredom! From beginning

    Boone Brux saved me from my waiting room boredom! From beginning to end, I set mesmerized, transported into the world of Lisa Carron. I fell in love with this character. Her snarky personality, filled with dry witted zingers filled my hours with genuine laughter and questions from strangers about what I was reading. Yes, I pimped out the book!
    Lisa’s the total package, she’s as real as any fluffy mother of teens could be plus she’s dealing with a job that more or less fell into her lap. Being a reaper will keep her bills paid, a roof over her family’s head, but this is just the beginning for Lisa. 
    You can just imagine how much trouble she’ll find herself in, as she’s not that great at rule following as she’d like to be. She’s been a mom, for Pete’s sake. Mom’s know all about the shades of gray in real life.
    Between Lisa’s new job, her new partner Nate, a familiar that happens to be a raven, and her porter whose name made me laugh right out loud every I read it, she’s got her hands full. I don’t envy her, but I can’t wait to read more about her!

    This book held that special magic for me; intelligent and entert

    This book held that special magic for me; intelligent and entertaining story, coupled with strong, sympathetic, whitty, adult heroine. Boone Brux strategically leaves tantalizing "bread crumbs" throughout the book for events that are resolved later as well as hooking the reader into wanting more in the form of future stories.

    Lisa Carron, the heroine in question, is a widowed mom trying to put her life back together after her husband's tragic death and leaving his family in financial straits. Ms Brux was able to capture the woman next door in her Lisa character. Someone the reader can imagine living next door and being friends with.

    Lisa is accidentally introduced into the world of grim reaping and into the life of sexy grim reaper Nick Cramer. Other characters introduced include a "porter" called Hal, best friend Vella, and reaper colleagues. For those who are fans of the demon, Al, in the Rachel Morgan series, they will absolutely love Hal.

    Beyond the story of Lisa becoming a reaper is a larger story of something disturbing but significant about to happen in the land of the dead, involving hell. The unresolved stories of reaping Kelly and Nuk, Jeff's possible infidelity, Nick and Willow's animosity, Hal as Lisa's death contact, and of course the significance of Lisa's raven familiar leaves the reader excited for more to come in the series. Can't wait for the next in the series.
