I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I decided to read this book. The thought of a funeral director and a Chef was kinda odd, yet interesting. Then Eve’s relationship with her brother reminded me of the movie Love Actually. My favorite movie.
This was the story of Eve Darling, or as everyone called her, Darling, and Abraham Von Sallage, known as Von to most people in the tiny town of Magnificent, Wisconsin.
Von ran the family funeral home and was kind of in a depressed state because no woman wanted to date him because of the morbid nature of his job.
Darling had big dreams of being a top New York chef, but circumstances forced her to stay behind and help with her mentally disabled brother Davis. She opened a kitchen store and became famous for her Dutch ovens. She even taught a cooking class in the back of the store, which is how she met Von.
Davis, Eve’s brother, was an almost 40 year old man with the mind of a five year old boy. He loved Clifford the big red dog and Darling so much. He lived in the local nursing home.
This story at one point made me tear up because like any good story there has to be tragedy. In that tragedy, came a great love.
The only part of this story that bothered me was when they went off on a religious tangent. I understand that people turn to their faith in times of death and that's fine. It was already implied that the book would have some religious undertones because of his job.
That said it was a good different book. The writing was pretty and their first kiss was so sweet and pretty the way it was written. If a unique quirky story is what you’re looking for, this is your book.
Katie is a great storyteller, but in my opinion, it’s the people, sorry the characters, who make her books come alive. Magnificent Agony is full of characters who will claim your heart as you read about the challenges they face. I smiled often while I read this book, but I also shed a few tears. I fell in love with an “afterlife organizer”. I didn’t think that would ever happen.
If you’re already a fan of Katie Mettner’s books, you need to add Magnificent Agony to your TBR list. But if you haven’t read any of her books, this is the perfect time to discover an author who will keep you entertained for hours and to begin a new series.
