Ghoulish Savannah funeral parlor heir Caleb Exley lusts after the untouchable art student Scarlet, who dreams of blowing town and heading to Hollywood. Caleb and his best friend, Grainger Mercer IV, liven up the dying Exley & Sons funeral business with a touch of modern day memento mori. But Scarlet remains dead-set on leaving until Avery, Caleb’s old friend from a prestigious medical research center, comes to town and catches her eye. Avery barely notices her, he’s got bigger and more important plans. When Caleb’s passion escapes his control and causes a horrific accident, Avery steps in and resurrects the business of dying.
MY RATING: 4 STARS
Okay, this was a really strange book. It was disturbing, morbid, weird, yet oddly intriguing. No, you didn't see my rating wrong—I did give it four stars. As strange as this book was, it kept me reading until the end. I don't think I've EVER read anything like it before.
