It's A Wonderful Midlife Crisis (Good To The Last Death, #1)
A Paranormal Women's Fiction with a bit of class, and a lot of sass, for anyone who feels like age is just a number! Whoever said life begins at forty must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.    Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.    But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who ’they’ are and rip them a new one.   One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed and breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job—deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.    To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won't stop giving me the eye. My BFF is thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters… Like Cher, I'd like to turn back time. Now.   No can do.     Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?   Everything, apparently.   All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis…

I laughed so hard that I literally cried as I took the journey with Daisy who has a new job and has absolutely no idea how she got so lucky and just as much no idea what to do except for needing a constant box of superglue. Learning that she has inherited the position and all it entails comes as something as a shock but one she is bound and determined to make her own. I loved it. Robyn has a way with words that just pop off the page and right into the imagination to bring it to life. She and the other group of authors that have banded together to bring brilliance of women over 40 a new lease on life. Hail the Fab 13, I have never read anything like it and I can’t wait for the next installments from them.

    Never saw the ending coming!!!I can never resist a Robyn Peterman book and one that I can relate to in the middle of my life makes it even better. Do you believe in the Grim Reaper or the Angel of Mercy? You probably will buy the time you finish this book!

    I absolutely loved It's A Wonderful Midlife Crisis ! By Robyn Peterman. At times I laughed so hard I cried and then at times the book was heartbreaking so I just cried. I love the fact that Daisy is older and everything that comes with it. She has an awesome group of friends that surround her, a hot new guy on the horizon, a new job helping the deceased and did I mention there are dogs?!!! I can't wait for the second book!

    I loved it! The author has reached new highs in her wacky and demented writing. She keeps the reader off balance from start to finish. In a good way, of course. The characters are fresh, fun and well rounded. The plot is original and crazy. I read the book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I'm addicted and can't wait for the next installment.

The boss, Clarissa, is a beast to work for. Even more now there is a smoking hot new lawyer Clarissa wants to claim for her own. That’s fine with Daisy – she knows she’s broken as a woman, and not looking for a relationship. This is painfully obvious after her date with Stan the hairy two-minute man – so going back to a “not dating” status is no big deal. With her best friends by her side, Daisy tries to figure out her new path in life, and how to help all the squatters. Why is she seeing dead people? Why does the hot lawyer keep showing up? And why does Donna the Destroyer seem to be able to see the ghosts, but the other dog Karen the Chair Eater does not? I cannot wait for the next book to see how this story unfolds!!

    I absolutely loved everything about this book. I love the name, the characters, the dialogue! It was amazing! This will definitely be one that I read over and over again until the end of time. I am in love with the fact that the characters in this book are all older, hence the name. This definitely is the epitome of what I hope to be doing when I'm over 40; the fun friends and family, not the ghost part! I can't wait for the next part.

    This book made me laugh, cry and a little hot under the collar - and not just as a result of my rampaging middle age hormones. I love having a heroine who is my age and going through similar age-related issues. This new genre is brilliant so far and I still have 10 more books to go!

There are books that the less said in a review the better, and this is one of those for you really should experience this firsthand, all on your own, for the greatest impact. I had a blast and May is really too far away to wait for the next installment in Daisy’s great undead adventure, but I’ll be right there on release day to gobble up the laughs and the tears once again.You are about to fall into a world where the ghosts of the recently (or not so recently) departed hang around just a bit longer to get that one thing left undone taken care of, and that is where Daisy, as a Death Counselor, comes into their lives or deaths actually. The thing is, a year ago she thought everything was wonderful with her life, now a year later she’s a widow with a farmhouse full of ghosts who keep losing body parts that need superglued back together again, one sinfully hot lawyer who is not at all what he appears, and more excitement than she ever expected to encounter at this time of her life. You’ll find best friends that you’ll want to adopt, one “The Price is Right” loving grandmother, adorable dogs (who may not be what they appear to be), one evil female with attitude and nastiness overload, and one damned good story.I had an amazing time in this world and cannot wait to visit once again. So, yes, I’d definitely recommend It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis with the warning to hold onto your sides because you’ll be laughing up a storm while reaching for the tissue box in the next paragraph. I loved it and I believe you would, too. Go on, check it out.I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. As you read this review It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis may no longer be in KU, but it can be found across all e-reader (and paperback perhaps audio) platforms since it will go out of KU in about 10 days from the release date.

You have Gram who is a hoot and then there are all Daisy’s friends. Now you have to add in the bad guy but in this case it is Clarissa who is definitely a bitch in so many ways.

It is beautiful and amazing story of a group of women that are aging beautifully. Daisy is sweet, charming, caring, strong and extremely wonderful. She may act before she thinks but is still a kick butt lady. Gideon is all kinds of sweet and sexy. This is a ride of a lifetime. A most fabulous story that is one that should be read.

    AmazeballsI've loved every character this author has written. This story is no different. Daisy is a strong middle aged woman who has survived tragedy and grief. She not only survived, but she chose to live as well. This was a very sweet story. It's PG, so those that don't like excessive language or hot, sexy time, will enjoy this story. I've already pre-order book 2! Although, I do hope there is some major sexy time as the chemistry between Daisy and Gideon is otherworldly

    WowI am having feelings. What a roller coaster of a book, from the first page you are on the Daisy train, and it just goes faster and faster. Daisy is a great protagonist, definitely a flawed character, but a really sympathetic one. I laughed at times, and I wanted to cry at others. Such a good read, but now I have to wait until book 2 to find out what happens.

    This is my favorite book by this author. The characters are fantastic. Daisy is a heroine women are going to love and want to be like. The animals are characters in their own right. I love the name nods. The zany antics fans expect are kicked up a notch. I'm a big fan of Gideon and this twist on the Grim Reaper. The world building draws you in. I will never look at super glue the same way again. That ending! I can't wait for May.

Daisy is coming to grips with her life being turned upside down last year. Just when she thinks shes getting there, bam now she can see ghosts. The hilarious antics, new characters, and crazy pets, it all adds up to an amazingly fun ride! I can't wait for book 2!

    Yes! Robyn Peterman has hit a home run, once again. At thirty-nine, life was good for Daisy. Life at at forty, well things just got interesting. With good friends, superglue, a house full of ghosts and a hot new man in town, turning forty has Daisy on her toes. I was hooked after the 1st paragraph! Robyn has turned having a midlife crisis into a humorous good time! I cannot wait for the rest of the series!

No nonsense, doesn't freak out and totally confident in herself. Love her! Preorder of book 2 just became a priority.
