Super Sunday Review 1: The Trouble with Dying by Maggie Le Page

Happy Sunday!  I apologize that this week has been a bit hectic and my reviews weren’t ready.  But, today you are lucky.  I have two great posts that will be up for you.  First is a unique book about what happens when your life is in limbo and if you choose right you can have a chance to fix past wrongs.  That is the unique story Maggie Le Page presents in her book, The Trouble with Dying.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Oh and don’t forget to look for Super Sunday part 2.

23844432Book Blurb:

When Faith Carson wakes up on a hospital ceiling looking down on her body in a coma, it’s a bad start to the week. A very bad start. She has no idea who she is or how she got there or why, and the biggest mystery of all is why she married the schmuck who wants her ventilator switched off.

As if that’s not enough Faith has a dead gran haunting her, a young daughter missing her, and one devilishly delicious man making her wish she could have a second chance at life. And maybe she can, if she finds a way back into her body and wakes up by Friday. But if she doesn’t, this will be her last bad week—ever.

Nate Sutherland decided long ago he’d settle for friendship if he couldn’t have Faith’s heart. But now, as she nears death, he’s going to have to listen to his feelings in a whole new way—and act. Because if he doesn’t, this week will be the worst damn week of his life. He’ll lose everything he’s ever loved.

Review:

Faith Carson wakes up looking down at her self.  Only she doesn’t know she is Faith and she doesn’t remember any of her past except that he dead grandmother is there with her too and she is dressed in a very unusual outfit.  Soon she realizes that it is up to her to decide whether she wants another chance at this life.  She must also prove she wants it.  As the important people in Faith’s life visit her she soon realizes mistakes she’s made and that she needs to live to make things right.  But, can Faith prove to those above that she truly wants another chance at this life or will her week fly by without her proving just how much she wants to continue living.

This was such an engrossing and unique story.  I think the idea of proving you want to continue living while in limbo is such a great idea.  Everyone questions what happens when you die, but few question what happens when your on the cusp of dying.  Not only was such a heavy topic treated with a great mix of respect and brevity but it also mixed in a suspense filled mystery of who caused Faith to be in the state that she is in.  You really get the great mix of emotions in this book.  Everything from sadness to guilty to hot to happy.  It really runs the gamut while making you want to turn every last page until you find out what happens.  I would highly recommend this book for those looking for a refreshing read.
