Title: Mourning Wood
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The clever name appeals. The book is pretty great, too, though.
Whitney and Wyatt have a past. It included a steamy tryst by a dumpster in an alley a couple of years ago. After a renovation at their funeral home goes sideways, and much to Whit’s unamusement, Wyatt is the solution her best friend has to her problems. Whit would rather die in a dumpster than see the sexy man again, but she can’t get rid of him when her dad signs a contract with him to do the work.
Did I mention how much the clever name appeals to me? It is perfect. Kudos, Heather M. Orgeron, you rock at this title thing.
I adored this story. While Whitney and Wyatt are plenty entertaining alone, Prissy, Whit’s daughter, steals the show. I consider this a Rom-Com solely due to Priss. The love story itself is sweet, sexy, steamy, and satisfying, but all the hilarity is because of the six-year-old goth-girl-in-the-making with a collection of glass eyeballs.
And going back to another thing, the man-candy on the front cover is hella tasty. Kudos, Heather M. Orgeron, you rock at this cover thing.
Wyatt is one of those incredibly alluring characters you can’t help but book boyfriend. He’s got the downhome charm and the sexy talk working for him, and you know you want one for your own. At the same time, Whit is both a strong female character and a roll-with-it maternal figure that you really want to rally around. Together they are synergistic magic.
And one last thing, I love Mimi, Pop, Maw-Maw, and Paw-Paw. Damn, the south has the best names for family members.
Get yours now, and don’t wait to dig in. It will cheer you up on a rainy day.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
