**First Honorable Mention - InD'Tale 2015 RONE Awards (Suspense category)**

5 Star Review - Readers' Favorite, 4 Feb 2015

5 Star Review - Books, Chocolate & Wine, 17 Jun 2015
". . . This book is so unique . . . I just wasn't prepared for how good it is--it completely blew me away. Maggie Le Page managed to seamlessly blend urgency and drama with an air of suspense and a large helping of humour. The story compelled me to sacrifice sleep in order to see it through . . . This is a book that will stay with me for a very long time."

5 Star Review - Frugal Book Collectors, 7 Feb 2015
". . . I've already read many books this year. This is my favorite book so far. It has absolutely everything - humor, romance, drama, suspense, tragedy and a nail biting mystery . . . I am pretty critical of paranormal elements and I never once thought, 'this is so not believable' . . . You won't want to put it down. I should know, I stayed up until 5 am to finish it!"

What Amazon Readers Are Saying
"The perfect combination of funny, heartwarming, and surprise."
"Filled with laughs yet so many touching moments . . . Fabulous chick lit!"
"Full of funny moments, some romance and a little mystery." 
"A great cast of interesting characters with engaging interactions."
"Read it straight through without stopping. Light, and fast moving."
"Very unique story. Makes you reconsider your values in life. I loved it."
"Fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat guessing . . ."
"It's A Wonderful Life meets Memento."
"Crackling dialogue, an ending you won't see coming . . . unforgettable characters and endearingly gutsy heroine."

From the Author

A message for readers who have already read A Heat Of The Moment Thing:

Thanks for checking out The Trouble With Dying :) As a 'repeat reader' I'm sure you'll feel quite at home.

Both books are written with humour in the midst of a life crisis (though the crises in each story are very different). And both have plenty of sizzle--so if you liked the electricity between the hero and heroine in Heat, you'll find there's more of the same with Dying.

I hope you enjoy The Trouble With Dying as much as I enjoyed writing it and, as always, I look forward to your feedback. Happy reading. :)

One night, feeling super tired and out of sorts after a hard day, I picked up Maggie Le Page's latest, looking for a relaxing read so I could unwind. Well, I wasn't exactly relaxed; I was I hooked! Forget the fatigue-I couldn't put this book down! It was so ingenious to have the main character, Faith, in a coma, looking down on herself lying utterly inert and vulnerable, as she fought for both survival and to rationalize her situation. From a wacky Gran (loved her!) to a nasty so-called BFF, a possibly muderous husband and a sweet daughter with special powers, a collage of colourful characters swept in and out of Faith's hospital room adding drama, spice and some major tension to Faith's predicament. Then there was the luscious Nate and all that he brought to the scene...'The Trouble With Dying' is a seriously good read, a beautifully crafted story, and I'm dying for some more from Maggie!

I was so excited to see that Maggie Le Page had a new novel out and The Trouble With Dying certainly didn't disappoint! I'm not usually a reader of mysteries, so I was very pleasantly surprised I enjoyed this book as much as I did. I would put that down to the clever, fast-paced narrative and psychological suspense the author creates throughout the story. You want to know what's going to happen next - in fact I wanted to know so much that I read it in just a couple of days. But it's more than just a mystery, it's a love story too, which is sweet, heart-warming and downright hot at times. Faith, the central character, is easy to like, and Nate, the love interest, is just as a hero should be - strong, manly, commanding and swoon-worthy. Although very different from her first novel, the author retains her sharp, elegant writing style, with more than a few great one liners thrown in. It's a real pleasure to read.

Much like the author, this book is fun, quirky, warm, and compelling!

We meet Faith Carson as she hovers over her own comatose body. With no memories of the event that has landed her in the hospital, of those who surround her bed, or even the ability to move, Faith is utterly helpless. Or would be, if it weren't for her dead Gran who is floating beside her, offering support.

Listening in on the conversations of those in her hospital room, Faith gradually comes to understand who Nate, Tessa, Kathy, Geoff and Cynthia are. Her mother, her daughter, her husband, her best friend, and her childhood friend. In sorting out her near death experience, Faith finds her emotional cup overflows with repulsion, confusion, lust, and love.

With only seven days to sort out how to move her "out of body" body, solve the mystery of who wants her dead, AND decide what she wants out of life, if she can get her two halves reunited, Faith has a busy schedule. Fortunately for her, there's a little magic left in the universe. With the help of a clairvoyant or two, a helpful police officer, and the love of friends and family, she races the clock up to the very last second!

The cast of characters are quite irresistible and will leave you laughing, panting, and hopelessly in love. This long awaited second book by Maggie Le Page is a definite must read! Each page is a carefully crafted delight.

(P.S. I'm not sure how, maybe with the help of a clairvoyant, Ms. Le Page managed to reincarnate my mother as Faith's Gran!)

The Trouble with Dying by Maggie Le Page is about Faith who is in a coma and having an out of body experience. She can't remember what happened to her and in fact she can't remember quite a bit of her past life. So she floats above her body trying to find out what happened to her. She has the help of her dead Grandmother and a few psychics along the way. Faith has 7 days to figure it out and prove that she deserves another chance at life before she's dies forever. She has to figure out who wanted her dead, her husband who she seems to have an estranged relationship with, her best friend who doesn't seem that upset that she's in a coma, a previous lover that obviously still has feelings for her but that she apparently hurt or someone else.

There were a few things that I struggled with in this book. I thought it was pretty obvious who tried to kill Faith although the author threw a few red herrings in. I didn't find the "shower ghost sex scene" believable and it just didn't work for me. I kept thinking if she isn't really there how can he be kissing her. I also wondered why no one was particularly worried or wondered about the "conversations" Faith's daughter was having with her.

I found it interesting but I wanted more from the ending.

SPOILER: I wanted to see Faith and Nate's reunion when she finally woke up. I wanted to know whether he knew all along if he was Faith's daughter's dad? If he didn't know how did he deal with her keeping that from him? I wanted the emotional payoff of them getting back together not just being told it happened in an epilogue a year later. END SPOILER

Still it was different and I did enjoy reading it and would consider getting something else by this author.

I received this book for free for an honest review.
