Welcome to my first Misplaced Monday post. Misplaced Monday is a meme that was recently started by Merv over at MervReads and is ideal for posting reviews of books you may have read before you started blogging.
According to Merv: Misplaced Monday focuses on the books you have read but didn’t get the chance to review (because of some reasons like: being a new blogger, forgetting to post a review, did not think that the book deserved a review then but deserves it now, etc.). Misplaced Monday works well for newer bloggers with unreviewed read books.
I’m also using Merv’s bullet book review standard for these posts as I find my memory isn’t so great for some of my older reads. This review system allows me to highlight the key points that I do remember.
For my first Misplaced Monday, I’m reviewing:
Grim Offerings: Aisling Grimlock, Book 2
by Amanda M Lee
Being a grim reaper isn’t easy, but answering to family is even worse.
Between argumentative souls, overbearing older brothers and everyday nonsense, Aisling Grimlock has her hands full. When a run-of-the-mill job goes awry, Aisling finds herself in a mess. The soul she was supposed to collect is still amongst the living, and the man who wanted to kill him is dead instead.
Detective Griffin Taylor is returning from an undercover assignment, and the first thing he wants to do is reconnect with Aisling. Her brother Aidan is giving him fits, though, and the rest of the family isn’t making things much easier. When wraiths start showing up again, and a member of the Grimlock family is seriously hurt, it’s all hands on deck for the final showdown. Unfortunately for the Grimlocks, they can never do anything the normal way.
Aisling is chafing under worry and pressure, and her family is circling the wagons. It’s going to take everyone working together to survive – and when the final fight is finally waged, a huge secret is revealed that will change the Grimlocks’ world forever.
This is the second book in the Aisling Grimlock paranormal mystery series.
