I enjoyed this book a great deal. The beginning of the tale started exactly where it needed to, deep in the grieving process that Lee is wallowing in one a year of the loss of her wife. Through a deathbed-requested intervention, Lee’s friends and family pull her back into the land of the living, and she is convinced to take on a personal protection detail through her company. Through the case, Lee meets Gaelle and despite their differences in beliefs, they become good friends. Eventually, there is romance, but I have to say, I liked how long they took to get there. It was refreshing.
I had no problem with their many discussions of spirituality and what happens after death. I thought that added an often-ignored layer missing from so many lesfic romances these days, a discussion of substance. Without giving too much away, I thought the conflict was realistic, as well as Lee’s response to it. Overall, this was a multi-layered story that you think you can predict, but there are a few surprises in store.
And that cover is a thing of beauty!
