Review for Prayer for the Dead by Nicki Scalise

A story about a girl who lived, died, and met a guy… in that order.

Is it possible to find true love and happiness, while condemned to purgatory until the end of days?

Olivia Brennan wasn't eager to find out. Working for a division of Purgatory and Associates, her job consisted of one headache after another, caused by the impatient souls waiting to move onto eternal paradise. After a hard day at work, she was most content to stay home, watching reruns or reading a book. Aside from a few friends occasionally 
forcing socialization, her afterlife was nothing special.

That all changed the moment Drake walked into her life. He was handsome, charming, and had a sadness behind his eyes she could relate to. It seemed that Fate had finally brought her a kindred spirit… 

But could Olivia move past her own dark regrets of the life she left behind or would falling for him demand the ultimate sacrifice—herself?

The cover art appealed to me and the synopsis just sealed the deal ;)....

"A story about a girl who lived, died and met a that order."

I must be honest Olivia has the strangest job and the strangest "life" she's actually living her afterlife!

Add Drake ,the love interest and we have a recipe for fireworks! The characters connect on so many levels despite the love / hate relationship. More often than not I'm either crying for them or yelling at them! 

Be warned, the end will haunt you for days! Well done to Nicki Scalise , I like her writing style , very unique.

Nicki Scalise lives in Colorado with her husband, Jon. They share their home with four dogs and a chinchilla. When not dealing with the chaos her four-legged critters bring, she spends her time reading, re-watching Firefly, and gazing out the window at the scenic mountain landscape… or staring at the wall. Prayer for the Dead, book one of the Revenants in the Purgatory series, is her debut novel.
