This book is creepy!!! (Well, at first) What do I expect? duh!! It is a diary of a mortician’s artist, so it should be creepy because they are dealing with dead people, but the book turned out to be so good that I wish it was longer. I love the way how this book was written,it is a short story but let me remind you that the story is great and is detailed in a good way, that you will see that the author does her craft very well, that she does not feed her readers a piece of crap but a detailed things on what an artist, who is beautifying dead people really do and what do they feel when they encounter a dead people. By reading this book you can say that what you are reading is indeed a diary of a mortician artist and you would be **amazedbells** on the things they do. The story isn’t dull so it would excite you to read more, to know what will happened next. For the characters, the author was able to conjure a strong and believable characters for both H/h. I wished that the author have written more of Jason’s POV but it’s okay since i’ve got a glimpse of what’s on his mind. And for my favorite character Mr. POE, (meow) I love you! And thanks for saving Morgan**hugs**.:) The story is  UNIQUE, it will forever stay on your mind if you read it so please do and (I bet) you won’t be wasting your time and money. #justgreat
