This week Morgan and Whitney dive into the first Revivalist novel Working Stiff by Rachel Caine. This new release has corporate spies, zombies and Bryn Davis, an ex-military veteran who has just inherited, and we use that word losely, a funeral home.
Morgan: I can say without a doubt that Bryn Davis is the first ex-military, dead, funeral director heroine I have ever read about.
Whitney: She’s definitely not your average romance heroine. And she is just as surprised by her new life as we are. Working Stiff starts with her first day of being a funeral director and just looks what happens. There’s awful customers, a girl who commits suicide in the bathroom, a creepy perv who hits on her, and oh yeah — she gets killed and then reanimated!
Morgan: Oh yeah, that teeny detail.
Whitney: And to add insult to injury it is the evil — and totally skeevie — mortician Fast Freddy who takes her out.
Morgan: At the command of Fairview Mortuary owner Mr. Fairview, who had seemed so nice all day!
