The first exciting novel in a brand-new series from New
York Times bestselling author C. C. Hunter!
Her dad’s job is with the dead . . .
and he’s bringing his work home with him.
Once again, seventeen-year-old Riley Smith is the new kid in school and
her dad’s career has her back to being dubbed a freak. Truth is,
she’s a much bigger freak than her classmates think. The only
company she keeps these days is the dead who follow Dad home from
work. She can see them. She can speak to them. And Fate seems to
think she can help them solve their last problems so that they can
move on to the other side. Which is odd, because with the loss of her
mother and her father’s alcoholism, she’s got enough problems of her own.
But nothing could prepare her for the next tormented young spirit who
darkens Riley’s door. The young woman’s death wasn’t the
accident everyone believes. Soon Riley finds herself face-to-face
with the killer and her only protection comes in the form of another
spirit, Hayden, a boy her age with a heart-melting smile and
understanding eyes that make her feel safe. If she can escape
becoming the killer’s next victim, Riley knows she’ll have to
help Hayden move on too, but what if she can’t let him go?

accepted that her special gift is to help dead people with their
unfinished business. But she never thought she’d be tasked
with helping the spirit of a convicted criminal who died in prison.
He may lead her on the scariest mission yet, but helping him
could mean saving the life of a child. The convict’s daughter
needs a liver transplant and the one person who could still be a
match is his brother…who also happens to be a gang leader.
Hayden’s not happy that Riley’s discovered who he is and is seeing him
and unconscious in his hospital bed. This feels like as good a
time as ever to cross over and put all of them out of their
misery….but Riley is in danger. She’s visiting some of the
most dangerous spots and confronting some of the creepiest low-lifes
in town. For her, he’ll need to regain his strength and fight
to keep her safe.
But dealing with other people’s problems still can’t keep Riley from
her own. Her dad’s drinking has gotten worse. And
she’ll soon learn it’s because he’s been keeping a huge,
horrible secret that will change everything she believes about her
family and her mother’s death.

I’m so so glad I got these books to review. I actually had requested to only review the 1st book but I was sent both and I couldn’t be happier. I’m a sucker for a good paranormal romance. While the idea of a person that can talk to ghosts isn’t a new paranormal theme I love the setting, the characters, and the specific situations.
I honestly read the whole 1st book in one night, I couldn’t put it down. I was drawn in with the character of Riley. I found myself rooting for different characters and wondering what would happen to others. When I got to the end of The Morticians Daughter 1 foot in the grave I couldn’t believe it was the end. No No No what happened with Hayden? Will she share her secret? Will she ever go back with Jacob? I felt a strong need to know.
So I immediately start the Morticians Daughter 2 feet under. This one I have to break up over two days because…work. I find myself reading hungrily to find out the answers I need to know. While some questions are answered the 2nd book brings up even more questions. The book left me heartbroken and wanting more. So I immediately start looking to see if there is a book three. Please god tell me there is a book three or at least tell me it’s in the process of being written.
