Review | The Corpse Whisperer by H.R. Boldwood

I have to love The Corpse Whisperer’s Allie Nighthawk. She’s everything I aspire to be… if I ever find myself as an independent contractor for management of the undead. Funny, smart and practical, she has a unique way of looking at things and she isn’t shy about sharing.

An interesting concept, Allie has the ability to awaken the dead for the practical purpose of solving crimes. Who makes a better witness than the victim? Unfortunately, putting them back to sleep isn’t as simple—and that’s where things get interesting.

Set in Cincinnati, there is plenty of detail in the writing to make it believable. The dialogue has plenty of snap and the plot is surprising and moves quickly. And she’s a dog lover. What’s not to like? I enjoyed the story and look forward to the sequel. The Corpse Whisperer is great entertainment.
