This book has a very interesting plot line. The main male character is a grim reaper at the beginning of the book. He wins a wager with the devil and is allowed to return to the living for 6 months to search for a certain hourglass that will restore his mortality. He immediately starts doing good deeds to right his many past wrongs. One of these deeds includes marrying Genie Macklin who was widowed when her husband was killed messing around.

This is a good book with a unique story line. I especially enjoyed the otherworldly gremlin returned to earth as a crow they call Olive.
