It is March 32nd, the day that doesn't exist, and Death, the agent of nightmares, has been demoted and exiled to live among mortals for the rest of his unnaturally long life. Everyone knows They don't look lightly on important items getting lost or an agent falling in love.

Can the diva-like Death navigate the modern world, recover what was stolen from him (the names of the damned ooops!) and get his job back? Or will he fall in love with Lola, the pretty thief who got him into all this trouble in the first place?


"No Fountains for you to push me into this time!"

I love the quirkiness of this cover, it completely fits the story, which happens to be amazing by the way!

Death and Mr Right is a dark comedic novel starring Death, the agent of nightmares. While on an errand in Boston on March 32nd (technically this day doesn't exist), Death loses an important list (it contains the names of the damned), well he actually didn't lose it, it was stolen from him by pretty thief named Lola.

Demotion and exile are two things that Death thought would never happen to him and now he's determined to recover the list and get his job back, but odds are stacking up against him, and while love is expressly forbidden in his line of work, Lola might just get him to break that rule. Will he get his job back? Or will all hell break loose?

Death and Mr Right features one of the quirkiest casts of characters you will ever read about. Death is every bit as melodramatic as his name might suggest, he is very short in stature and incredibly proud of his brilliantly blue hair, plus he absolutely loves his job. Death is entirely a diva, priding himself on his taste in clothes and shoes, however he is a sweet character, funny with some very real vulnerability. Poor Death may be a drama queen, but he sure has a lot to deal with.

Lola is a thief, she dons disguises and spends her time roaming the streets of Boston and acquiring things. She is hilarious and sarcastic, but she's also kind.
Malcolm is sleazy and self-centered, while Mandy is a gossip, and Mr Right is a complete stickler for the rules.

The character development is exceptional, with the characters all growing along the way, making mistakes but also changing for the better as well. Death's point of view was quirky and funny, the story told at a steady pace whilst containing a constant element of surprise.

The characters were all amazingly well-written (as was the story) and 100% enjoyable to read about, they were also relatable with their past experiences and emotions. The interactions between Lola and Death were hilarious from get-go and spiraled upward in unexpected ways.

The agency with it's various agents, Wings and reapers was incredibly interesting to read about, as was Death's assessment of everyone there. The office politics were unbelievably intriguing and comedic. This novel contains nothing explicit - it's just a quirky, cute and funny read.

There was plenty of comedy, a bit of snark, some action and some romance, and all together lacking nothing. Death and Mr Right is a great, uncomplicated read and is easy to get lost in (apparently like Boston).

"Steal from me."

I rate Death and Mr Right Five out of Five!
