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.


Editorial Reviews

Review

When Jennifer Graham learns she has inherited real estate in Florida, she never imagines it is a funeral home, especially one in need of so much repair. Thomas, Jennifer's husband, recently left her for their nanny, and she is at a crossroads in her life. A newly single parent with two boys, she sets off to settle her uncle's estate and sell the Fairlawn Funeral Home, but things don't go so smoothly, and Jennifer may find that this new life God has thrust upon her may be the answer to her prayers. Award winner Hunt's latest book (after The Elevator) is a topnotch inspirational tale that maintains a lighthearted touch. Anyone who has had to rebuild a life after an unexpected loss will appreciate the honesty of Hunt's characters and uplifting plot. Highly recommended for CF and women's fiction collections. -- Library Journal

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.

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.

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 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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A story with a lot lof heart.. August 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite the fact that a funeral home is center stage, this is an engaging story. The characters are all people you would like to know ( with several exceptions ). It is a factual account - in the background - of the care and respect that people in the industry show to the deceased. That aside, it.was a.good read for anyone looking for a different story.

I was surprised by the likable characters, the twists and plot turns and I uncharacteristically enjoyed the natural way spiritual topics were a vital part of the storyline....I can't wait to read the next book!
