Review: Grave Intentions by Lori Sjoberg

Grave IntentionsReview by Lynn Reynolds

David Anderson works for Death. He’s on his way to an appointment with his newest trainee, Adam Javorski. Adam doesn’t quite understand what the job entails but David is there to guide him. Adam seems to be the voice of compassion and David seems to be very cynical. I think Adam is perfect for David. He’s the shot in the arm that David needs and then they meet Sarah.

Sarah Griffith has a very spunky grandmother named Pearl. Pearl feels she has a gift that no one understands and that gets her into constant trouble. Sarah works in a lab and you can tell how she only believes in things that can be seen or proven. Sarah doesn’t believe in the unknown.

I love the first meeting between Sarah and her next door neighbors – can we say big misunderstanding. Then there is a scene where David and Sarah are watching a football game. It’s interesting when I find that I have a connection to the story – do you ever feel the same?

David has a talent that left me wishing that this book came with illustrations. This is where your imagination and mind’s eye need to work overtime. One can always hope that someday the e-reader will evolve into having illustrations/pictures – and in color too.

This book shows that it’s never too late to change our lives. David has a job that he had no choice but to take, he’s made the most of it and then along comes a woman. Love can come when you least expect it but what will you do to keep the person that completes you. Lori also does a great job of building the suspense until its final conclusion. It takes a lot of creativity to come up with the world that David and Adam live in.

I loved this book and I’m looking forward to reading the next book. It’s not a book that is based around sex. It’s about the love that builds between a man and a woman no matter the odds. And the reader also gets their paranormal fix. But it also leaves me hoping to see what happens with Adam.

Make sure that you read to the very end and Lori will give you a sneak peek. There was a secondary character that works with the guys and her name is Ruby. Book two is her story. There was no title listed and I did my best to try to find out what I could for you but with no success – we will just have to wait and see.
