Is it possible to fall in love in the afterlife?
The last thing Piper Malko ever expected was to have her life snatched away so early. When she wakes up on the front steps of her brownstone to a rose-colored facsimile of her world, she is forced to come to grips with her demise. Why is she still trapped on her street, though? Was there a debate as to her final destination? Any attempt to ask the gauzy pedestrians passing by goes unheard. No one notices her. Until she sees him—over six feet of well-defined humanity staring back at her from across the street.
Russell Hughes is dead. He can remember the impact of the car. But there was no bright light. No portal to the beyond. Instead, everything around him is pink. Except for her. The attractive woman across the street.
Piper and Russ try to piece together the crime that killed two strangers on the same road. If they can find their killer, then maybe they can escape this rosy limbo.
But will leaving purgatory tear them apart…just as they’re falling in love?
Review by Twinsie Kelly
“Who knew hell came in shades of pink?”
Piper finds herself alone in purgatory but happens to find another soul, Russ, stuck in the same place. These two are naturally drawn to each other, but they are the only people here. They are working through how they ended up here and how to move on. But then what does “moving on” really mean. I felt like this moved a bit slow at the beginning, working through purgatory. I expected there to be more paranormal activity, possibly other souls, ghouls, bad things…but that really wasn’t there. There was a being trying to get Piper, and Russ was ever so chivalrous to protect her. Eventually, the twist happens and that is when the story gets great. This is a true love story where fate was definitely involved. If you are looking for something more along the lines of ghosts, vampires, or other things that go bump in the night, I would not recommend this. However, if are looking for a super sweet love story that happens to start in Purgatory, this is perfect!
USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller worked in the software industry for fifteen years. She crawled around plant floors in a hard hat and safety glasses hooking up computers to behemoth manufacturing machines. The job required extensive travel. The best form of escapism during those lengthy airport layovers became writing.
Maureen’s first novel, WIDOW’S TALE, earned her a Golden Heart nomination in Romantic Suspense. After that, she became hooked to the genre. As hooked as she was, childhood fantasies still danced around in her head––little voices calling for her to write the young adult science fiction BEYOND series. To her it was still romantic suspense…just on another planet! She now divides her time between romantic suspense and young adult novels.
Maureen is a wife. A mother of a crazy Corgi. And a lover of mozzarella.
