Undertaker Nina Sherwood is your average Millennial with a steady job, a nice home – and dead bodies in her basement.
But when Nina opens her brand new shop in celebrity-studded Primrose Hill, corpses are hard to come by. ‘We don’t do death in this part of London,’ she’s told. ‘Such a shame you didn’t think to open a vegan cupcake shop instead.’
Banned by the Traders Association, bleeding start-up capital faster than anyone can complain, ‘Your ghastly shop is bringing down property prices!’, and bothered every day by a neighbour who hands her an enormous bill for roof repairs, it looks as if Nina’s made a huge mistake. And when her ‘big break’ funeral turns out to be a hoax, it seems like Nina’s business and her reputation are dead and buried.
Enter Barclay Banks – part kidult part corporate lawyer – who takes Nina on a helicopter date to Paris and offers to invest in her business.
But why would he do that?
Why is he so keen for the shop to relocate to a different part of London?
And above all else, can he really be trusted?
A funny, darker take on the traditional romcom - perfect for your blog on and around Valentine’s Day!
About Karen Ross
As a former journalist, broadcaster and advertising copywriter, Karen Ross has followed a fairly traditional path into writing fiction. Five Wakes and a Wedding is her fourth book, and like its predecessors, the novel has two common threads: the setting is London’s Primrose Hill – Karen’s own neighbourhood – and one of the characters is a dog . . . this time he’s called Chopper and he’s almost the same size as a Shetland Pony
Karen has been self-employed for many years, and continues to work as a marketing consultant, in the absence of an offer to manage Tottenham Hotspur. By way of credentials, her other ‘job’ is trading profitably on the world’s first football stockmarket, a platform called Football Index, where you buy and sell players with real money.
