For Fans Of
Life after death just got deadlier. Mrs. Beatrice Timmons (aka Miss Knight) is thoroughly unimpressed by the troop of monkeys that have invaded her kitchen. Of course, that’s only the beginning of the influx of undesirable critters. When a giant spider appears in the garden, Mrs. Timmons knows there’s trouble brewing and it’s not served with tea. A choice must be made: agree to an unholy alliance or endanger an unborn child? To confound matters further, her husband disapproves of the whole venture. And that’s before Mrs. Timmons vanishes into the Underworld to pay an unsolicited visit to the God of Death. While it’s all for a good cause, the consequences could be dire.
“The pace is fast, furious, and filled with unusual creatures of the dark and light.”
“I thoroughly got into this story… because it was humorous; maybe it was because of the bantering between the various characters.”
"The author has a gift for storytelling, and incorporating African myths and folktale, which I so appreciate. I love learning about new and unfamiliar threats and monsters. In this book the characters continue to be developed, and show many complex and understandable reasons for their behavior (good or bad). I'm going to sit down now and read it again, slowly, and enjoy the story again. These characters have become close friends."
