    I love this book!

    I absolutely love this book! After reading that last line, I was overwhelmed with emotions (good emotions that tug at your heartstrings) and now I can’t wait for the next story. The Mortician’s Daughter: One Foot in the Grave is geared towards young adults, but I honestly feel that anyone will be impacted by this wonderfully written book. C.C. Hunter covers many difficult topics throughout the book and she does so beautifully. I adore Riley and felt everything she went through like she is my best friend. I look forward to reading how much more trouble Riley is likely to get into and, gasp!, which boy will keep her heart in the end. Grief is a big focus for many characters throughout the story. No matter where you are in life the loss of someone close to you is going to affect you and how you live your life. Riley suffers from the loss of her mother when she was very young. She sees the struggle with grief in her father and friends and she cares so much to help them move on. With Riley’s ability to see and speak to the dead she is thrown into helping them pass over by doing favors for them and throughout these interactions she comes to realize that moving on is perfectly okay. The Mortician’s Daughter: One Foot in the Grave has everything I could want from a story; ghosts, drama, romance and a mystery! It delivered and then some. If you love paranormal romance suspense then this may be for you! I received a copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it. All my opinions and thoughts are in no way influence by this. Final Rating: 5 Stars

    Great read

    The Mortician’s Daughter by C.C. Hunter was a great read. A great plot and sweet romance. Along with other characters that round out the story. I loved the plot. Riley is someone who can talk to and see spirits of people who have unfinished business. As a Mortician’s daughter this gives the spirits easy access to her as they often follow her father home. She might not like her dad’s job (My FIL has the same job ha, so my husband lived over a funeral home) but it gives her an opportunity to help people. I think as much as she thinks it’s embarrassing, she also sees the good of it. I like that a parent figure is very present and not only are we seeing Riley’s struggles with teenage life. We also get to see how she deals with being the daughter of a single dad. They have their ups and downs and disagreements but they also have a very strong bond. They are for the most part, a team. So when Riley has some concerns about her dad it’s hard for her to cope. She doesn’t have another parent to talk it over with or even to help her understand. I liked how this aspect of her life is shown. I don’t want to compare this series to Shadow Falls but some of the things I love about the Shadow Falls series continue on. I love that C.C. Hunter always has strong female friendships in her stories. The Mortician’s Daughter is no exception. Riley is starting at a new school and of course feeling lonely but she soon finds companionship in the friends she makes. One of them being Kelsey. They just click and understand each other easily. So I had my suspicions about Hayden from the get go and I wasn’t surprised that they turned out to be correct. I really like him though and the way he reacts with Riley. He understands a part of her that would not be easy for other people. Maybe with time they would but he doesn’t need evidence and there is no room for doubt with him. They fill a hole for each other. So of course another boy and of course he’s a good guy so I have no idea to root for! It’s not situation where she is leading anyone on. It’s not that kind of love triangle. It fits well with the story and the way the plot is going and it was like ahh this is so hard! I really enjoyed the story and that it had a mix of mystery and romance. While still dealing with teenage and family issues.

    Loved this book!

    I loved CC Hunter's Shadow Falls series and I was worried I wouldn't like her newest series. Turns out, I had no reason to worry, because I loved this new book. Riley, the main character, is very likable and easy to relate to. She is struggling with the usual teen problems, but she's also the new kid at school--and her dad is a mortician. To top it off, the ghosts from his funeral home follow him home and expect Riley to help them move on. Riley soon finds herself in over her head and the target of a killer. But she has Hayden to help her--a cute ghost of a guy with deep blue eyes. I can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens with Riley and Hayden.
