Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Death is what grim reaper Lucien Dupree knows best. Or rather, he did until his reaping powers became tragically unreliable. Now he’s living in a self-imposed exile to keep humanity safe. Sure, it’s a lonely existence, but it’s the best thing for everyone. Except him.

Retired genie, Imari Zephara, has found her happy place in Nocturne Falls. Well, as happy as she can be considering the alternative returning home would bring her. Then a dark force rears its ugly head and throws her life into turmoil. Suddenly the only way to save herself is to join forces with death, who turns out to be a pretty amazing guy.

But Lucien’s defective powers might not be enough to overcome centuries of jinn tradition, meaning Imari’s life would no longer be her own. All he wants is to give her the chance to choose her own future. Hopefully, one that includes him. What more could a guy a wish for?

Another great story from this universe

These are great stories, set in a quirky universe where vampires, werewolves and genies are normal and live their lives in the town called Nocturn Falls. This time we meet a reaper who has problems, we also meet a genie with problems of their own. This is the story of how they help each other and live happily ever after.

Another winner!!!!!!

As always, Kristen Painter brings it. This book is no exception. And as always, B J Harrison brings the characters to life. He is a fantastic narrator. This book is about Lucien, a retired reaper and he meets his love in a Genie. Even though each had their on problems, things have a way of working out.

Reclusive Reaper and Retired Genie Find Love

I was so excited to see a story of Lucien Dupree (Introduced in Miss Frost Saves The Sandman) and Imari Zephara (Introduced in Miss Frost Ices The Imp). Both of these characters interested me when I first read about them and was thrilled to see them get to be fleshed out (pun slightly intended) in this longer story. I appreciated getting more details in the story about both of their conditions and situations and seeing them team up together while navigating their own personal histories and burdens and to build an affection for one another in the process. Again we have some wonderful side characters including the ghost grandma that hangs out with Lucien. We again are taken in this tale to another world outside Nocturne Falls and you face off several tense, though short lived, conflicts that this couple will overcome. This is a tale of two characters that because of their circumstances have in some ways lost hope but seem to find hope renewed in the romance with each other. Light, fast paced, happy ending, with light humor and PG romance this is another solid entry to the Nocturne Falls series. Fans of the books will not be disappointed and B.J. Harrison keeps up his pace with providing wonderful life to these characters.

unanswered questions

They didn't say what happened to the fake bottle! How did Cora's mom die? I really enjoyed this story but it felt rushed at times.
