The Trouble With Dying by Maggie Le Page

When Faith Carson wakes up on a hospital ceiling looking down on her body in a coma, it's a bad start to the week. A very bad start. She has no idea who she is or how she got there or why, and the biggest mystery of all is why she married the schmuck who wants her ventilator switched off.

As if that's not enough Faith has a dead gran haunting her, a young daughter missing her, and one devilishly delicious man making her wish she could have a second chance at life. And maybe she can, if she finds a way back into her body and wakes up by Friday. But if she doesn't, this will be her last bad week-ever.

Nate Sutherland decided long ago he'd settle for friendship if he couldn't have Faith's heart. But now, as she nears death, he's going to have to listen to his feelings in a whole new way-and act. Because if he doesn't, this week will be the worst damn week of his life. He'll lose everything he's ever loved.

About the Author

Maggie Le Page lives in Christchurch, New Zealand (aka QuakeZone) with her partner, two children, and a snooty cat who thinks they're all her slaves. Her days are spent running around after kids or doing one of her 'real' jobs, so her writing generally happens in the dead of night. (Morning? Ha! She's a third-generation night owl. Enough said.)

Maggie loves chocolate, hates being cold, and is ever fascinated by the possibility of time travel. Obviously, her ideal experience would be to wake up on a tropical island eighty years into the future, with an endless supply of chocolate on hand.

The Trouble with Dying by Maggie Le Page Faith Carson wakes up to find herself on a ceiling with her dead Gran next to her. She looks down to see a body that looks vaguely familiar. It ends up that body is hers. Faith only has a week, according to Gran, to remember her life, or else. She isn't sure what the or else is, but she wants to live. During the time she's hanging around on the outside, Faith tries to learn about herself from the people visiting her. She has flashbacks of certain things but can't quite put them together right away. Did she try to commit suicide? Faith doesn't feel like she's that kind of person. Was it an accident? Maybe. Or...did someone attempt to murder her? And if so, who? Her husband Geoff? Her childhood friend Nate? His mom Sylvia or maybe her best friend Cynthia? This story is told from Faith's point of view alone. I found the story pulled me in and kept me reading. It was interesting to think of things from the view of someone in a coma and the mystery of what happened to her kept me guessing as well. I really enjoyed this book. **Sensual content and language

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Trouble With Dying by Maggie Le Page is a novel of suspense with a touch of humor. Faith Carson wakes up to find herself looking down on her own body from a hospital ceiling. She doesn’t know it’s her, of course; she doesn’t even know who she is or where she is, let alone why she’s on a ceiling. To make matters worse, her long-departed gran has joined her on the ceiling. Faith wants to know why she married the man who wants her life-support switched off. She wants her daughter back and she wants to know who Nate Sutherland is. Nate is in love with Faith but has contented himself with looking from afar. That could all be about to change as Faith decides she wants a second chance a life. She only has until Friday to get back to her body before the ventilator is turned off. Can she do it? And what will she do if she makes it back and wakes up? The Trouble With Dying by Maggie Le Page is a lovely story, with a bit of humor thrown in for good measure. I loved the characters, they were written in just the right way to draw a reader into their lives and follow them through the story. The story itself had a good plot and was well developed in a way that made me want to keep reading. I wanted to know if Faith would make it back to her body and what she would do when she did. The ending was ... well ... I’ll leave that to you to find out.

The last time I tried to read a book by this author, I admit that I couldn’t get past the 2nd chapter. But this one had a woman lingering between life and death, so I thought I’d give it a shot. Faith is in a coma of some sorts; her spirit (or whatever) is standing there watching her limp, lifeless body with no memory of how she got there or who these other people are. She doesn’t recognize her own husband, her daughter, not even her mother. The only person she does remember is her dead grandma, who kind of aids her in the process. Faith makes it a point to get back into her body because, quite frankly, death sucks. What I enjoyed the most is being lost along with Faith about who she was, then slowly unraveling these little clues. Like the fact that Nate (the one she had an instant connection with) wasn’t her husband, but rather it was some arrogant douche that wanted to pull the plug on her. It turns out her fall may not have been accidental, but instead attempted murder. The question was: who would want to kill her? It was interesting to see all the pieces coming together, which prompted me to keep on reading, even though the writing was a little kooky. You’ll root for Faith all the way as she fights to get back into her body to be there for her daughter, to knock some sense into Geoff, and to see if Nate really is the one for her. A story about second chances. A true- blue mystery ‘til the end, although the ending was a bit played down, if you ask me. Still, this was a nice paranormal read.

Seriously, I had my doubts about this one. I am a huge fan of Patrick Swayze and when I read what this was about I was sure it would it would be so close to "GHOST" that I would be really disappointed in the author. But you know what? She nailed her own story! I was reading last night before bed, woke up at 4:30 this morning thinking about it. So of course I got up and continued reading. I could not put it down! I will read more of her books.

I really enjoyed this story. I was trying to second guess what or who was the bad guy and good guy all through the story. I love that I had to get to the end to find the answer.

Take one short story and let it draggggg on. Good character profiles but written for a 4th grader at best.
