Finished the book yesterday. FANTASTIC! Hard to believe it is her first. The style of writing is so good and incorporates so many styles and themes. Each character is unique and easily remembered. There is suspense until the end. The extensive research is evident throughout. You know I was an English major and I would give this book an A Plus and five stars!!!! Can't wait for Grave Secrets. I think you should just sit at your computer and crank out as many as possible.....

Loved to Death is a good debut book, though short. I like the way the author has worked with point of view to let one in on the thinking of each major character. After reading, it makes me think about adoptees and how they must always carry the burden of unknown parents with them, for a lifetime. Such was the plight of Morosa, the main character, a 23 year old adoptee who tries to explain her life after her death, along with each of the main characters perspectives on who she was. Though fiction, it rings loudlly the theme that is carried with many adopted children and the author shares those feelings in ways that nonadoptees can begin to understand.

Adoption was the answer for Morrow and Rose McKinley. They brought five day old Morosa Denise McKinley home and made her their own. But for the now twenty-three year old Morosa, was adoption the right answer? Loved to Death is an unconventional ghost story with a hint of who-dun-it told from the viewpoint of multiple characters. Loved to Death is a very short and quick to read story. In this case, I believe its length worked against the story. There was not enough time for character development or for the plot to build and grow on readers. Before you know it, the story is over. I think this would be better as a full length novel with more exploration of characters and the plot. And my advice for the author with her future releases would be to limit the narratives. Readers bounce from one character's narrative to the next without introduction. You have to read a sentence or two or three to realize which character's viewpoint you are now reading from. Despite a few editing quirks, Loved to Death is a decent debut effort.
