Book Review: Reaping the Benefits by E.J. Noyes
Paperwork of death.
Morgan is successfully running a business and in competition with another fierce employee to get an award. When the dorky hot IT woman, Jane, becomes her client and refuses to fill out important paperwork, it puts the award in jeopardy for Morgan. She must agree to Jane’s terms in exchange for completing the information and setting things right in her endeavor to be the best
This was a quirky story about the processing of death. I recently read another book, The Mortician’s Daughter, which had a similar concept. Where that one took itself too seriously, this one excelled at providing enough sarcasm and comedy to make it enjoyable.
I have to admit, though, that it took almost half the book for me to really get into this. I guess in the beginning there was a lot of explaining of the characters, backgrounds, and processes. There wasn’t much really going on until Morgan and Jane started to travel about together. And even then, it took a couple of interactions before I got invested in them.
Noyes is one of my favorite authors. You can’t go wrong with any of her books.
I recommend this to people who like to read about romance, death, bucket lists, inter-dimensional travel, and trying at casual unsuccessfully.
