Whoever said life begins at forty must have been heavily medicated, drunk, or delusional.    Thirty-nine was a fantastic year. I was married to the man I loved. I had a body that worked without creaking. My grandma, who raised me, was still healthy, and life was pretty damned good.    But as they say, all good things come to an end. I’d honestly love to know who ’they’ are and rip them a new one.   One year later, I’m a widow. My joints are starting to ache. Gram is in the nursing home, and dead people think my home is some kind of supernatural bed and breakfast. Gluing body parts onto semi-transparent people has become a side job—deceased people I’m not even sure are actually there. I think they need my help, but since I don’t speak dead, we’re having a few issues.    To add to the heap of trouble, there’s a new dangerously smokin’ hot lawyer at the firm who won't stop giving me the eye. My BFF is thrilled with her new frozen face, thanks to her plastic surgeon, her alimony check, and the miracle of Botox. And then there’s the little conundrum that I’m becoming way too attached to my ghostly squatters… Like Cher, I'd like to turn back time. Now.   No can do.     Whatever. I have wine, good friends, and an industrial sized box of superglue. What could possibly go wrong?   Everything, apparently.   All in all, it’s shaping up to be a wonderful midlife crisis…

So I tested myself with this. Nope. It's bad. How bad? The entire 'plot' --and I'm being generous by calling something that shows up in the last third of the book a 'plot'--hinges on the MC making one giant assumption about her brand-new, ghost-filled reality. And that's because the world-building is non-existent. Without spoiling anything, let me just say that the MC super-glues a hand back on a ghost. That only she can see. She has no curiosity as to why this works, merely describes herself as 'batty.' Then there's the lurve story component. A million-year old being falls in luuuuuve for the first time in.... centuries. There is no characterization beyond the MC. Everyone else, except perhaps friend Heather, is just a cardboard cutout, including the love interest, who is The Most Perfect Being Ever. Hawt, Kind, Admiring, Multi-talented, Rich, whatever, whatever. Don't forget Zany Grandma! It's like someone borrowed the paperdolls from Janet Evanovich and placed them into this book, without even the conflict of a love triangle. As a side note, our MC keeps talking about how 'Southern polite' she is, and then referring to 'banging' with her boyfriend. Eww. So much classier. Oh, and for the cherry on the top, it ends on a cliff-hanger. Well, whatever. I'm just glad I don't have QB anymore and can be free of restrictions.

I’ve not had the pleasure of reading Peterman before even thou I have a few of her books on my TBR. I wanted to like this novel; especially since I’ve really enjoyed others in the over 40 bracket novels that have been coming out, but this one just didn’t hit the spot. Our heroine, Daisy, is a 39 year old widow and a paralegal who loves working with her friends. When the story starts we see her gluing a hand back on a ghost and she explains that this isn’t normal for her. It just stated one day that she could see ghosts. Now, does she go looking for answers? Nope! Throughout the story Daisy doesn’t try to understand this new ability, nor does she talk to her grandma about it, nor does she try to get the lowdown on what is happen even when she finds out a few of the people in her life are paranormal or part of her world. What does she do? She runs around dumb and at the end she blows up her life on one big assumption about her brand-new ghost filled life. I was petered by that. She’s 40 and she does this stupid thing!! As for the romance; I didn’t fall for the romance. I couldn’t believe it especially when Daisy doesn’t try to understand her new world. As for the story I was lost when it start. I felt like I was missing a whole book. It just didn’t start in a way that worked. The story was slow moving and didn’t hold my interest. It lacked in plot, character and world building. It lacked in any type of explanation on what is happening to our heroine and our ghosts. And, the story also ends on a cliffhanger and I have a love-hate relationship with those. This time I didn’t care for it. It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis was meant to come off as a mix of humor, paranormal woo-woo and romance, but I felt it didn’t meet those expectations. Rated: 1 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Silver Dagger Book Tours with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    Addlepated This book ends on a cliffhanger, which is even more annoying since the first 60% of the book is filler. It isn’t until more than half way through the book that the female protagonist, Daisy, stops dithering and being a general dimwit and the plot of the book starts to get going. As it is, I don’t know how many adult women scream inanely in their own houses and run through their own house screaming.

It isn’t until more than half way through the book that the female protagonist, Daisy, stops dithering and being a general dimwit and the plot of the book starts to get going. As it is, I don’t know how many adult women scream inanely in their own houses and run through their own house screaming. I can honestly say that I have never jumped on top of my kitchen table for any reason other than cleaning off the light fixture that hangs over it. Maybe this is something that happens at 40? Instead of having more knowledge and greater ability to cope with life, one just starts screaming? Another problem is that the author uses every possible pejorative for mental illness while getting the book started. Whack job. Crazy. Cray-cray. Loony. Lunatic. Psycho. Bat$#*+, et al. Even as Daisy is talking aloud to herself about the movie The Sixth Sense, at no point does she ever feel curious about what is going on. She doesn’t speculate that she’s having hallucinations or consult a therapist or speak to her family or friends about any of it. It’s hard to find Daisy likable. While Daisy is a weak and not particularly enjoyable character, the world-building of the AU makes no sense at all. Daisy starts getting inexplicably younger. She goes out for a quick jog and runs a marathon. The ghosts she sees are all rotting corpses that are literally falling apart - whether they died 2 weeks ago or 2 years ago, they are all equally decomposed. Sometimes the bodies are corporeal and sometimes they’re not. The author never explains any of it.

    I’ve listened to Peterman’s Shift Happens series and her new series did not disappoint. Humor, engaging characters and an interesting paranormal gift quickly pulled me in. Daisy, a thirty-nine-year-old widow, and paralegal loves working with her friends. However, Clarissa the owner’s daughter is a terror. When the firm hires a sexy new lawyer, Clarissa calls dibs and forces Daisy to work from home. Which at the moment is fine, since Daisy has been seeing ghosts.

However, Clarissa the owner’s daughter is a terror. When the firm hires a sexy new lawyer, Clarissa calls dibs and forces Daisy to work from home. Which at the moment is fine, since Daisy has been seeing ghosts. In fact, some are living with her and hogging the TV. A mix of humor, paranormal woo-woo and romance held me spellbound. Peterman creates relatable characters and weaved in some adorable animals you’ll enjoy. Karen and Donna the Destroyer added to the tale and have some unique skills. From ghostly limb issues, the hot sexy lawyer who might just be able to see her ghostly roommates. From the romance to the unique storyline, I soon found myself fully invested. It looks like the story ARC and romance will unfold throughout the series and I am looking forward to seeing Daisy hone her skills. Fans looking for friendship, paranormal cases and a touch of romance should run not walk to grab It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis. This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer

I laughed so hard that I literally cried as I took the journey with Daisy who has a new job and has absolutely no idea how she got so lucky and just as much no idea what to do except for needing a constant box of superglue. Learning that she has inherited the position and all it entails comes as something as a shock but one she is bound and determined to make her own. I loved it. Robyn has a way with words that just pop off the page and right into the imagination to bring it to life. She and the other group of authors that have banded together to bring brilliance of women over 40 a new lease on life. Hail the Fab 13, I have never read anything like it and I can’t wait for the next installments from them.

    Cute, funny, sexy, surprising and mysterious - also confusing, and ends on a cliff-hanger, thought the next book comes out in a few days on May 18th. Free (as is this one) with Kindle Unlimited. No sex scenes in this book, just some heavy petting, and lusting. Not the perfect book but it is free and kept my mind off of our world-wide problems.

    Never saw the ending coming!!! I can never resist a Robyn Peterman book and one that I can relate to in the middle of my life makes it even better. Do you believe in the Grim Reaper or the Angel of Mercy? You probably will buy the time you finish this book!

    Need more!! If Robyn Peterman writes, I read! She’s done it again with Daisy and the rest of the crew in It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis. So fun and quirky, you won’t be able to put it down until the end. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

    I loved it! The author has reached new highs in her wacky and demented writing. She keeps the reader off balance from start to finish. In a good way, of course. The characters are fresh, fun and well rounded. The plot is original and crazy. I read the book in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I'm addicted and can't wait for the next installment.

Being a paralegal is not the most exciting job, but it pays the bills while she waits for the insurance payout for her husband’s death. The boss, Clarissa, is a beast to work for. Even more now there is a smoking hot new lawyer Clarissa wants to claim for her own. That’s fine with Daisy – she knows she’s broken as a woman, and not looking for a relationship. This is painfully obvious after her date with Stan the hairy two-minute man – so going back to a “not dating” status is no big deal. With her best friends by her side, Daisy tries to figure out her new path in life, and how to help all the squatters. Why is she seeing dead people? Why does the hot lawyer keep showing up? And why does Donna the Destroyer seem to be able to see the ghosts, but the other dog Karen the Chair Eater does not? I cannot wait for the next book to see how this story unfolds!!

    As this is the first book I’ve read by this author, I had no preconceived notions going into it. I was still BLOWN AWAY! This book has everything.... the laughs, the snark, emotions all over the place, & a hot as hell grim reaper. I loved Daisy 💖 Not only is she dealing with turning 40 & working for a soul crushing boss, but now she also has to deal with squatters. While the ending was a bit of a gasp 😮, I can NOT wait for more!! #PWF #FAB13

    This book made me laugh, cry and a little hot under the collar - and not just as a result of my rampaging middle age hormones. I love having a heroine who is my age and going through similar age-related issues. This new genre is brilliant so far and I still have 10 more books to go!

There are books that the less said in a review the better, and this is one of those for you really should experience this firsthand, all on your own, for the greatest impact. I had a blast and May is really too far away to wait for the next installment in Daisy’s great undead adventure, but I’ll be right there on release day to gobble up the laughs and the tears once again. You are about to fall into a world where the ghosts of the recently (or not so recently) departed hang around just a bit longer to get that one thing left undone taken care of, and that is where Daisy, as a Death Counselor, comes into their lives or deaths actually. The thing is, a year ago she thought everything was wonderful with her life, now a year later she’s a widow with a farmhouse full of ghosts who keep losing body parts that need superglued back together again, one sinfully hot lawyer who is not at all what he appears, and more excitement than she ever expected to encounter at this time of her life. You’ll find best friends that you’ll want to adopt, one “The Price is Right” loving grandmother, adorable dogs (who may not be what they appear to be), one evil female with attitude and nastiness overload, and one damned good story. I had an amazing time in this world and cannot wait to visit once again. So, yes, I’d definitely recommend It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis with the warning to hold onto your sides because you’ll be laughing up a storm while reaching for the tissue box in the next paragraph. I loved it and I believe you would, too. Go on, check it out. I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. As you read this review It’s A Wonderful Midlife Crisis may no longer be in KU, but it can be found across all e-reader (and paperback perhaps audio) platforms since it will go out of KU in about 10 days from the release date.

    Forty and widowed was turning out much different than Daisy thought it would. She thought her life would just go along with no problems, working as a Paralegal with a group of women she really liked. Instead she seems to be losing her mind a bit, ghosts are all around her, trying to communicate with her. Living in an old farmhouse with a couple dogs, lots of spirits and a large supply of superglue. The ghosts keep losing body parts so the superglue comes in handy.

She thought her life would just go along with no problems, working as a Paralegal with a group of women she really liked. Instead she seems to be losing her mind a bit, ghosts are all around her, trying to communicate with her. Living in an old farmhouse with a couple dogs, lots of spirits and a large supply of superglue. The ghosts keep losing body parts so the superglue comes in handy. Turns out seeing the ghosts and communicating with them becomes her life, helping them move on or trying to at least. Turns out ghost whispering kind of runs in her family. With the help of her best friends just maybe she can make it through the days a bit less stressed out. Of course this book does end on a cliffhanger so I am trying not so patiently to wait for the next book. This book will have you in stitches one moment then make you sniffle the next. Such a wonderful series, gotta love tough older women! It's A Wonderful Midlife Crisis

    2 stars The heroine was dense & filled with preconceived Christian based notions yet she was agnostic? It became increasingly annoying. 🤦🏻‍♀️ The plot was thin & story was underwhelming. Unlikely to continue the series.

    This is an new type of book for me to read. I will say one thing the story is awesome! Daisy and Gideon make a great couple with Daisy’s late husband Steve rooting them on! You have Gram who is a hoot and then there are all Daisy’s friends. Now you have to add in the bad guy but in this case it is Clarissa who is definitely a bitch in so many ways. Must not forget all the dead people and what Daisy’s job is. So much is going on and there is humor and let’s not forget Donna or Karen. I will not s This is an new type of book for me to read.

I love how Daisy is finding her own way to be counseling ghosts and helping them move on her unique takes on it makes for many laugh out loud moments and some really sweet ones as well. This was an outstanding story and I am looking forward to more in the series.

    I laughed until I cried, then cried some more. Robyn Peterman could write the ingredients on a cereal box and make you want more! From the cover art to the ending in this book she takes you on a roller coaster ride of wackiness. From seeing dead people and gluing lost body parts back on to finding out her husband's long lost secret, getting a new love interest & losing him, finding out her family secret and dealing with a horrible boss, Daisy is having a Hell of a 40th year!

The characters are wonderful! I adore Grandma & Steve! Living with my own version of a Hellhound endears Daisy's to me. I actually had to stop reading and take a break as I was zipping through it so fast. I really hated seeing it end. Can hardly wait for the next one to come out to continue Daisy's adventures!
