By Joyce and Jim Lavene
• Genre – Cozy Mystery (PARANORMAL)
When Nashville cop Skye Mertz and her husband, Jacob, are killed in a wreck, Skye is given the opportunity to come back for twenty years to raise her five-year-old daughter, Kate. With her ghostly mother-in-law’s help, Skye hopes to be there until Kate is old enough to take care of herself.
But three years into her twenty-year service to Abraham Lincoln Jones, the man who gave her the extra time, Skye is beginning to think life might have been easier before she died.
Abe asks her to investigate the murder of his sorcerer, Harold the Great, a man who was a victim of too many snakes. And the Life Extended People (LEPs – a nice term for zombies) who work for Abe have begun turning into ghosts and disappearing. Only Lucas, the possibly evil, amnesiac sorcerer who lives with Skye and her family, can save her from being the next victim of the deadly curse.
To make matters more complicated, Skye has found a lead in solving the riddle of her husband’s death. She has never believed Jacob died as a result of the crash, but hasn’t been able to prove it. Many other people have lost their lives in the same lonely stretch of highway that he did three years before. Skye goes against Abe’s express wishes to discover the truth with a crazy man bent on vengeance.

My review:

It 's a paranormal mystery compelling, original, different from the usual, with likeable characters and a plot really well developed.
Skye Mertz died in a car accident with her husband Jacob but is allowed to return as zombies for 20 years to raise her daughter. She was a police officer and now works for Abe: she's taxi driver for the LEP (Life Extended People), once exhausted the 20 years she must bring them to the morgue. It is not a simple job, who would want to come back dead? Skye also wants to investigate the death of her husband, for her it wasn't a simple accident. There have been other suspicious deaths that occurred in the same circumstances.
It 's full of paranormal characters: over zombies there are werewolves, wizards, ghosts. It 's funny, humorous and even romantic.
It's the second book in the series "Taxi for the Dead", can be read as a stand-alone but for a more understandable and entertaining reading suggest you read the series in order.
I recommend it to those who love paranormal romances and those who want to read a mystery different and particular
I received a copy of the book in return for an honest review.
