Title: Grim Tidings
Series: Aisling Grimlock #1
Author: Amanda M. Lee

Grim(ace) while you work ...

Aisling Grimlock is having a bad week. Well, actually, she’s having a bad life -- not that she's complaining. Okay, she's totally complaining.

After being laid off from her secretarial position, she has no choice but to join the family business, and now she’s a full-time grim reaper. That’s right. She collects and transfers souls to the hereafter.

Cool, huh? Not quite.

On the second day of her new job, Aisling (literally!) stumbles over a dead body that’s not on her list and the stakes are suddenly raised because, when a name isn’t on the list, that means someone stole it (and that's never a good thing). 

Aisling’s family, which consists of a tempestuous father and four overbearing older brothers, are hot on the case – but the answers they’re coming up with aren’t exactly soothing. 

It seems a contingent of wraiths have descended on the area, and they’re not just dangerous for unsuspecting souls and the general populace. The Grimlock family is at risk, too. 

If that weren’t bad enough, Aisling finds herself inexplicably drawn to Detective Griffin Taylor – the police officer who considers her a murder suspect. Oh, and she's a wraith-magnet -- although, truth be told, she's more interested in Detective Taylor. 

Aisling is determined to prove that she has what it takes to be a great reaper – even if it means risking her life and proving her father and brothers wrong when it comes to her competence level.

When things finally become clear, will Aisling survive long enough to make things right? Or, will she fall prey to the wraiths and the individual controlling them?


Aisling has joined the family business with her brothers, and father. She isn't sure this is really what she wants to do, but she felt she didn't have any other option. Now, when she stumbles over a dead body, and meets a cop things get interesting. Especially when some strange things are going around taking souls before she and her brothers get the chance, and not only that she has a strange attraction to this cop, but isn't sure how to continue. 

This book was a great start to this series. Amanda M. Lee has done it again, by creating characters with great dialogue and a great relationship between them. 

I really enjoyed this one a whole lot, and it sort of just surprised me. I didn't even know this author wrote this series until I stumbled upon it by accident. I thought it was great, and I can't wait to read more. The characters were great, and had awesome banter between each other, and I look forward to more in this series.
