Book Description

How do you cope when God asks you to bury a dream? In this new series by best-selling author Angela Hunt, readers will meet Jennifer Graham, the no-nonsense chief of staff for a Virginia senator who quits her job after a divorce and finds herself an unemployed single mom. Forced to live with her mother until she can find work on Capitol Hill that does not involve her gregarious ex-husband, her efforts are stymied until she learns that she has inherited a funeral home in picturesque Mt. Dora. Jennifer journeys to the small Florida town with her two sons and her mother, never dreaming that within a mortuary she will discover she has inherited a rewarding career that teaches her far more about life than death.

About the Author

Christy-Award winner Angela Hunt writes for readers who have learned to expect the unexpected in novels from this versatile author. With over four million copies of her books sold worldwide, she is the best-selling author of more than 100 works ranging from picture books (The Tale of Three Trees) to novels. Now that her two children have reached their twenties, Angie and her husband live in Florida with Very Big Dogs (a direct result of watching Turner and Hooch and Sandlot too many times). This affinity for mastiffs has not been without its rewards—one of their dogs was featured on Live with Regis and Kelly as the second-largest canine in America. Their dog received this dubious honor after an all-expenses-paid trip to Manhattan for the dog and the Hunts, complete with VIP air travel and a stretch limo in which they toured New York City. Afterward, the dog gave out pawtographs at the airport. With the recent completion of her doctorate in theology, Angela admits to being fascinated by animals, medicine, unexplained phenomena, and “just about everything.” Books, she says, have always shaped her life— in the fifth grade she learned how to flirt from reading Gone with the Wind. Her books have won the coveted Christy Award, several Angel Awards from Excellence in Media, and the Gold and Silver Medallions from Foreword Magazine’s Book of the Year Award. In 2007, her novel The Note was featured as a Christmas movie on the Hallmark channel. She recently completed her doctorate in biblical literature and is now finishing her doctorate in Theology. When she’s not home writing, Angie often travels to teach writing workshops at schools and writers’ conferences. And to talk about her dogs, of course. Readers may visit her web site at

4.0 out of 5 stars From the eyes of a funeral director August 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A friend recommended this book to me because I am the only female funeral director she knew.
I have enjoyed this book for three reasons. One reason is that it explains the emotional and personal reasons many of us funeral directors choose this life. It was interesting to see how Jen matures into her appreciation of this profession and comes to an understanding of what we do. The second reason is that Angela has done her homework as to the language and understanding of the "technical" side of the embalming process and prep room. I appreciate that. Thirdly, the book was a fast read and the characters were well developed in a short time. I would recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars so glad I read this one! July 9, 2014

What a fun and delightful read. I was not sure what to expect when I picked up Doesn't She Look Natural. As I began reading I was drawn to the main character, her struggles and heart ache. The author did a great job introducing the circumstances while keeping the feeling light and not depressing. I enjoyed the boy being boys. The support characters were well developed. I fell in love with all of them. I wanted to go meet everyone. The ending was a complete surprise and again the author drew me in without dragging me down. I think this would be a great beach read. I found myself treasuring my husband a little more at the end of the book. Amazing story I recommend it for everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading tons of fiction books, this one certainly has a new point of view. I learned about the ministry in the death care business and I will never think of death the same way again. Well written with an unexpected ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars Homey and totally relatable characters October 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very likeable characters and easy for me to relate to. I too was dumped as she was. The only thing I found distracting (and this has nothing to do with the authors writing) is that on my kindle the pages were disjointed. I might only get a paragraph on a page, or the sentences were broken up. I think it had to do with the transference from paper to electronic. It happened throughout the book sadly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible story and interesting info on embalming January 26, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book from start to finish today. This is the first of her books I've read. Can't wait to read the others. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I loved the characters, all so real. Very interesting having all the info on the funeral business and how a body is prepared. There were a few typos, shouldn't have been any. A lot less typos than most of the books I read. I recommend this book highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't she look natural October 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This totally unexpected inside look as to how some of those in the funeral service business view this job with compassion and deep respect was comforting and sometimes funny. My take on those who perform this service as ' just in it for the money ' was completely changed by the attitude's of those in the story. Seeing Gods purpose fulfilled in all three generations lives despite their very human struggling, was inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly good story May 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the beginning it was clear that the author really knew the ups and downs of marriage and motherhood - I repeatedly found myself murmuring "been there."

The main character is not the typical whiny spoiled entitled girls of beach reads. No. Our heroine has been through the wringer and is just trying to survive - sometimes doing a good job, sometimes not. Get this book. You will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars expect the unexpected from Angela Hunt August 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say, I never before read a book about living in a mortuary. The topic by one of my favorite authors caught my attention. While I learned a tiny bit about the mortuary business, I learned even more about life after divorce, dealing with challenging mother/daughter relationships, learning to live for others and not just oneself, and learning to trust God when things go awry.
