Five Wakes and a Wedding E–pub/Kindle
Thank you to NetGalley Avon Books UK and One More Chapter for an e arc of this title for reviewI really enjoyed the uniue premise of Five Wakes and a Wedding Nina is starting her own business awesome as an undertaker whaaaaat Most of the book is set in Primrose Hill which was super cool I love when an author sets their story in a specific neighborhood rather than just New York or LondonAfter a slightly slow start the plot clips along this is definitely a book you could devour in a day poolside this summerI do wish there had been less discussion of dieting It felt out of place given that this is a book about a woman who s an entrepreneur and not a
BOOK ABOUT A MODEL OR A about a model or a In the same chapter that Nina identifies mansplaining she thinks to herself about calories and how she s about to dive in because they don t count in her current situation Ie that s the reason she s allowing herself to enjoy a good meal I get it I m a woman raised in the same body focused fat shaming world as the author But I m trying not to relate to food like it s the enemy and so it s jarring when the word diet appears 10x in a book not about food I imagine the reader is supposed to interpret it as humorous but I didn tI ll also note that it threw me off a bit when the point of view switched for each wake I assume these chapters will be formatted differently in the final version
so that won t interpret the flow of other readersOverall I that won t interpret the flow of other readersOverall I it and would recommend if that premise sounds interesting to you too First of all that title This was an entertaining story with an unusual premise Nina Sherwood loses her job at a posh funeral parlor and tries to open up her own undertaking business in an up and coming part of London The residence of Primrose we re not having it it gave all the wrong impressions of this newly transformed neighborhood A lot of the story was about Nina convincing the locals that a funeral parlor will benefit everybody because eventually we will all need to use it A bit morbid but true At first I was having a hard time believing that people who live in a city the size of London would care one way or another but then I remembered people like to complain about lots of things and I imagine it s the same in the UK as it is in the US But I honestly could not tell you where the nearest funeral parlor is around me I m sure there is one I live in a pretty big city but I d have to Google it hopefully no time soon There is some romance in the story as well to contrast with the death theme I m still not sure how I feel about Nina s choice though There were a few other secondary characters in the story that seem very interesting I would ve perhaps like them to have been be developed a little bit If Nina hadn t been such a dynamic character I definitely would not have liked this book as much as I did All in all this was a clever little storyThis book in emojis Big thank you to One More Chapter for my gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own So tell me Nina His voice is soft husky urgent Have you ever done it in the back of a hearse I now I said I wasn t down with romances or chick lits Undertaker Nina Sherwood is full of good advice For example never wear lip gloss when you’re scattering ashes Nina is your average 30 year old with a steady job a nice home – and dead bodies in her basement As an undertaker she often prefers the company of the dead to the living – they’re obliging good listeners and take secrets to the grave Nina is on .

#it worked really well for me so if you want to do that I really recommend you try this out PLOT #worked really well for me so if you want to do that I really recommend you try this out PLOT STYLE CHARACTERS THEMES PACING PAGE TURNER Thank you to Avon Books UK for sending me an ARC to review All thoughts and opinions are my own 2 STARSI hate it when this happens but I just wasn t super fond of this one It was a cute and sweet uick read but the plot was generally slow and didn t really capture much of my interest This is the story of Nina an undertaker who has recently started her own business after being let go from her previous position From the title I was expecting details about funerals and the stories behind them and that isn t what we get It was almost halfway through the book before Nina had anyone even seek out her new business Once we did see some funerals that our MC organized I can t say there was anything spectacular about them They actually felt rather odd and dull even though Nina s undertaker business wants to make funerals personal I just didn t get that vibe from themThe plot was just OK and I also think it Although it took me a moment to get into this book I uite enjoyed the story of Nina the female undertaker trying to get her new shop up and running in a posh part of London The biggest twist in this story is the female undertaker as main character which includes a lot of actually very interesting information on death and funerals Death being a taboo topic is a big issue in real life and within this novel That s
what made me push the book to 35 stars or 4 stars instead of just 3 stars How many booksmade me push the book to 35 stars or 4 stars instead of just 3 stars How many books we get to read on undertakers For me Not a single one So without a doubt this was a fresh breeze in a genre I love so much But don t be misled by the blurb it is not as intriguing as it sounds It is your usual relaxing story even if it is all about funerals Oh don t make that face like the residents of Primrose Hill Death is one of the realities of life and we need to face it whether we like it or not But how you want to make your grand exit is entirely up to you Yes I now love and death are polar opposites One is a nourisher while the other is destruction So a love story featuring funerals five in fact is strange indeed What is stranger is that we are going to love the funerals much than the wedding at the end Nina s passion for business clearly dominates the story of her love life If I have to pick a favourite among the funerals it is going to be the second one It was spectacular as well as surprising If you haven t thought about your funerals yet this book is a good place to start Do you want everyone to weep over your death or be glad about the moments they were able to share with you So don t miss this precious gem you are bound to get a lot of idea. R her new business That is until a tall dark and mysterious investor shows up out of the blue and she decides to take a leap of faith Because after all it’s her funeralThe perfect antidote to all those books about weddings this book will make you laugh until you cry perfect for fans of Zara Stoneley’s Bridesmaids Four Weddings and a Funeral and The Good Place. .
