Work at a funeral home can be mundane. Until you start accidentally bringing the dead back to life.

If you like contemporary fantasy with snarky humor, unforgettable characters, piles of pastries, and a little paranormal mystery, you'll find it hard to pry yourself away from the Cassie Black Trilogy...a fish-out-of-water tale that takes you from the streets of Portland to the Tower of London.

The Undead Mr Tenpenny (The Cassie Black Trilogy #1)


The Uncanny Raven Winston: Cassie Black #2


The Untangled Cassie Black: Cassie Black #3
