Publisher's Summary

Midlife is sheer madness, and the facts of midlife are not taught in school. Unfortunately, some lessons are hellishly hard to learn.

I thought I had it figured out. I was wrong.

Proving I’m the Angel of Mercy is turning into a shitshow of epic proportions.

Not too long ago, I was a 40-year-old gal with a stable and boring life ahead of me. Now? Not so much. I have celestial siblings who are no walk in the park. Their decisions can destroy my future.

And of course, my predecessor has given me a month to do the impossible or I’ll lose everything that means anything to me.

Gluing ghosts back together is turning out to be the easiest part of my job.

Fine. If this is my fate, I accept. Nothing is impossible if you believe.

I choose to believe.

Enjoyable… But worth 1 Credit?

I discovered Robyn Peterman with the first book of this series. Between the story and the narrator I thought “Cha Ching, I’ve discovered a good one”!
Each new book had development of characters and keeping progression of story.
This book did the same. Lots of laugh out loud moments and heart warming ones as well!
What I have realized with this book made me go back and listen to the others, the first chapter is a repeat of the last chapter of the previous book!
This was a short story that I used a credit on and now wishing I would of just paid for it.
If Robyn’s next couple books in this series are each going to be short like this one, then wait on release until you can bundle them and save us all from the need to have repeated last chapters take up our Credits. I’m so sorry to sound harsh.

Why was this so rushed?

I absolutely love these books. this particular one is only 4 hours long, which is annoying because it's a recap of the first 6 books!!! WHY?? So annoying!! I wasted a credit on a damn recap? Ugh!

Way too short!

oh my gosh! 15 chapters and done!...
I am just ahhhhhhhhh! I waited forever for the book and a bit disappointed.
The narration is amazing! Like normal. But this can't be all of it! It ended so flat.
I am just blah at this book.

Too short

I listened to the whole series. It’s great gets you hooked on the 6 included books and then makes you purchase the last book in the series touché Audible but it was the shortest book in the series

Amazing

I really enjoy Robyn Peter and books. Love this series especially when I hear “The end……….for now” leads me to believe another book is coming and I’ve enjoyed this very much. Such a beautiful escape from life for awhile. This book like the rest of the series did not disappoint. I read other reviews where people didn’t like the author, however she grows on you and now I can’t imagine another author reading this series. She is entertaining to me and makes me laugh. I feel she brings life to the characters. Simple and to the point: if you enjoyed this series I recommend this book. If you can’t get past the author then I’m sorry because your missing out on entertaining story telling.

the story was good. But..........

The narature was faster then in other books. Book felt like it was an abridged version. no real suspense and everything felt rushed. book was 2 hrs shorter than the last 6.

I like it

came across it all trying to find something to listen to while waiting for a new credit to roll through. I will say she does use the phrase a long moment and you feel me someone excessively also I think the books are quite short maybe there doesn’t need to be seven of them could’ve condense it down to 4 all in all story will continue listening

Fun but too short

It seems that the author is making her books shorter and shorter. I don’t mind the cliff hangers but…..

Short

Wish it would have been longer. I don’t like books under 6-10 hours. It bugs me to spend a credit on a book that’s priced just above what a credit would be so I have to use one to get the rest of the story. I’ll get over it but damn that sucks when I could’ve spent a credit on a 30 hour book. Loved the characters and the story but it should’ve been longer.

Love this narrator

This narrator is phenomenal. She's funny and reads with excellent comedic timing and voices. She would make the dictionary fun to listen to.

Repetitive & REALLY short.

Like the other reviews have mentioned;, you get short changed with this book. It's several hours shorter than the other books and 30 mins of that is the last chapter from the previous book!! Whilst the storyline is good and the characters upbeat as usual, I found there was loads of repetition from previous books. Annoyingly so and I got slightly irritated at times. Definitely not worth using a credit but by the time you get to book 7 you're already more than hooked and have no choice but to spend it. No, it's not the best book in the series but entertaining enough. I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire series and even though this review isn't overly positive, I'm still looking forward to book 8. Oh, the narrator is brilliant!

Short

Read the first books from the plus catalog and enjoyed them as light background noise. Bought this one and while the story continued at the same pace and standard as the previous ones, I feel absolutely duped because the books get shorter as they proceed. This book is half the length of the first and two hours shorter than than most of the others. I will not be purchasing more as the series has definitely turned into no more than a money mill……… shame!

Loved this series

I have totally enjoyed this series . Loved the one liners

Narrator very good and “ invisible’

Happy to recommend
Better to read the series in order though

- only slight annoyance is that the last chapter is repeated as the first chapter of the next book - makes the last book v short as only about 4 hours to start with -

Great story but ...

I have very much enjoyed this series, some of which I've previously reviewed, they're hilarious and very entertaining but ... this one is soooo short, all of them are pretty short but this one almost met my cut off limit for buying.
So 2 stars off for only being 4 hours long (the first 30 is the intro and last chapter of the previous book) and still ending on a cliff hanger... just 'RUDE' (channeling my inner Daisy there).
It's still worth a credit though, go on, you know you want to ;)
