Grim Tidings book review

Grim Tidings is the first story featuring Aisling Grimlock, a Grim Reaper in training. See, all of Aisling’s family are ‘reapers.’ As many women, in all male families, do – Aisling tried to escape. She tried to forge her own path.

However, fate dragged Aisling back to the reaping business kicking and screaming. She’s not going to take it lying down though. Aisling decides to fight back from the inside. While her brothers may just go and collect souls, Aisling takes to talking to the ghosts of the souls she is there to collect. This obviously leads her to both hilarity and headaches. Not to mention, leading Aisling to hunky detective Taylor who is torn between wanting her and wanting to arrest her.

I started the Grim Tidings book after having read Amanda M Lee’s, Wicked Witches of the Midwest series. I expected humour, relatable characters, and strong family love. The Grim Tidings books delivered all and more of my expectations. I absolutely loved this book, and the entire series. There is a bit of mystery. The books build the characters. And more importantly, you’ll enjoy each and every story. Aisling and her whole family is so likeable and enjoyable to hear their stories.

If you are looking for a ‘spooky’ themed book this time of year, that is not in the least bit scary, then look no further then Amanda M. Lee. I promise you’ll love the humor and warmth of these books.
