Death Actually


RRP: E book $2.99 USD.

Maggie never wanted to go into the family business but when her parents die suddenly, and her husband has abandoned her and their two small children, what choice does she have? With the support of her friends, Elka and Betty she had to accept becoming a funeral director. Death comes to us all and Life goes on. Now Kate and Nick are grown and Maggie faces the prospect of a future without them. It’s the middle of winter and Queenstown, a resort town in New Zealand, is full of skiers. Betty has just died and Elka needs surgery. Kate, a talented young chef has returned from London and won’t get out of bed. Nick feels guilty delivering fast food to an ex-champion skier who is bitter about the injury which robbed her of Olympic glory. There is a movie star in town who won’t listen to advice. Most frustrating Maggie can’t seem to put a foot right with the new doctor in town.

“Like any good book there is sorrow as well as celebration, but friendship and love is an important thread entwined throughout the pages and anyone who likes an inspiring family drama of modern living will find this a good read and like me, they will find the vivid descriptions around Queenstown to be captivating.” New Zealand Booksellers’ Review.

“The author has gently moulded the strands of the story together with humour and it moves along at a brisk pace with some very satisfactory outcomes from the twists and turns she created among the characters. The underlining theme highlights strength, reliance and hope while looking to the future.” New Zealand Booksellers’ Review.

“Death Actually is a light and lovely read; a love story with a healthy dose of comedy, an engaging cast and multiple plot lines. It’s full of life (and death) and infiltrated my emotions enough to make me cry at the end. Definitely worth a read.” Louise, Wardini Books.
