Publisher's Summary

Midlife is supposed to be messy, but this is a full-on catastrophic crisis.

Just when I thought life might be getting back to normal—normal being a relative word—I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Marriage proposal from the Grim Reaper? Yes.

Beautiful healthy baby? Yes.

Friends and family safe? Yes.

Ghost of my worst enemy sitting on my front porch? OMG. Yep.

With the ghostly world imploding around me, I’m going to need more than superglue to repair it.

Question? Am I willing to do what has to be done?

Answer? I’m about to find out.

To say forty has been an eventful year is an understatement.

On the contrary, it’s turning out to be a seriously hard-knock midlife.

Mid-Life Rules

It is hard to find the words to explain how I’ve fallen in love with the characters within these books. This includes the secondary characters introduced in each of the novels.

I find so many parts of myself within the characters and the relationships between them. I so enjoy the use of “southern courtesy rules” and the breaking of them …. Even the use of crass, gross, profanity is accomplished with such gentility and humor.
I have so appreciated this series. The author has raised so many thought provoking ideas and life questions and arrive at answers so similar to the my own.

repetative

I love this series. love daisy and Gideon. I don't know if I can continue on tho with all the repetativeness. the "anything is possible if you belive" every other sentence is getting old and I really want to pull my hair out everytime I hear it now. I love the narrator.

Not ready for release...

I always enjoy this author and narrator, however this was clearly not ready for release. An example would be at the end of chapter 8, there's actually a clip that is attached to the end of chapter 8 that I'm assuming are narration notes from Jessica Almasy. I'm hoping that the author actually sees this and knows that they need to go back and clean this up!

Another winner

Robyn Peterman has done it again with the latest installment in her Good to the Last Drop series. Come on Robyn write the next in series, don’t leave me hanging for too long.
Jessica Almasy, as always, breathed life into the story and gave each character their own distinct voice.

Too short 😥

I found Robyn Peterman’s Midlife series and immediately fell in love with her writing style. I have since read the entire midlife series and now the Good to the last Death series twice! Her books are that good. That being said, I can’t believe I have to wait for the next book. I listened to this last one so fast that I thought I missed some of it but no. I hope Robyn writes fast because I don’t want to have to wait too long for the next book.

Thoroughly enjoyed

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. Unique idea and not too raunchy. Just enough sexy time/talk to not feel ridiculous. Which is good for someone like me who shares an audible account with teenagers, lol! The repetitive use of some of the phrases, like “I craved his laughter” was way overdone but didn’t deter me from wanting to finish the series. As someone else mentioned, Daisy does seem to transgress to a bit of a juvenile character instead of a 40yr old woman who is growing and changing but again, still worth the listen.

Stringing it out

Stringing it out too much now. Losing interest fast. Sometimes you just need to know when to end a series

Fantastic

I absolutely love these books they make my ribs hurt with laughing and then the serious part. I love all the characters and the guest ones. The 4 spectres of the apocalypse awesome made me chuckle so much. Keep these books coming. I will never get tired of listening to these. Narrator, thank you so much. Your knowledge of these characters is excellent. You bring them to life along with the storyline perfectly.
