The family in this series is stinking wealthy! They try to keep themselves centered or down to earth by doing charity work and such. However, you can't get past the money making their lives easy and not something normal people can identify with. Each book finds a different exotic setting for the story, while being home based in England.
The series is said to be paranormal, and is not based in reality at all. Entertainment rarely is, however, the paranormal portion of these stories is limited and does not over power the stories.
The book does present a very un-biblical view of the afterlife. Each one will have to decide if this is something they want to read or not.
Otherwise it is an entertaining and quick read. There is a recipe in the back of each book, with the exception of 2 that I have found. Kind of a nice bonus.
Another fun book. They are written so well that you get lost in them and before you know it the end is there and it is time to start another one. I really hate to think of what will happen when I am done with them. Hope she keeps right on writing more!!!
