Five Wakes and a Wedding

Five Wakes and a Wedding by Karen Ross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nina is your average 30-year-old with a steady job, a nice home – and dead bodies in her basement. As an undertaker, she often prefers the company of the dead to the living – they’re obliging, good listeners and take secrets to the grave.
Nina is on a one-woman mission to persuade her peers that passing on is just another part of life. But the residents of Primrose Hill are adamant that a funeral parlour is the last thing they need… and they will stop at nothing to close down her dearly beloved shop.
When Nina’s ‘big break’ funeral turns out to be a prank, it seems like it’s the final nail in the coffin for her new business. That is, until a (tall, dark and) mysterious investor shows up out of the blue, and she decides to take a leap of faith.
Because, after all, it’s her funeral…

My thoughts : This book needs to be made into a movie!

I didn’t expect to laugh out loud so much when reading about an undertaker and funerals. I loved this book by an author who is new to me and I look forward to reading more by Karen Ross.

This book follows Nina as she opens ‘Happy Endings’. It covers life, death, family issues and relationships but still leaves you feeling happy. Loved the twists in the story and demolished this book in 2 days.

Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for a review copy – I can honestly say I love the book.
