This Morning I Woke Up Dead Book Review

Things are seemingly perfect for Hadley Christensen and Dominic Morris. They’re engaged, both of them have promising careers in the medical field, and they’re happier and more fulfilled than they have ever been. When Hadley heads off to work one morning, she realizes things aren't as they seem. While staring into the headlights of a fast approaching oncoming vehicle, life as she knows it is forever altered. Her last breath on Earth is only the beginning.

She isn't about to die.

She is already dead.

No one else knows but they are all dead too.

This powerful realization forces Hadley to leave Dominic behind and exist in another realm. Neither soul handles the painful separation well, nor can their bond be broken. Even in death. Hadley is given the rare privilege to make contact from the other side, desperately hoping to convince her beloved of his true state and ensure they be together once more.

This Morning I Woke Up Dead takes you on a journey of discovery as two souls fight against their undeniably difficult situation of being tormented and separated by different realms of existence, proving that those who are destined to be together will not be kept apart by a beating heart.

My Review
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Can you imagine finally having the life you’ve always dreamed of and you’re engaged to the guy of your dreams?  Then suddenly all of it is taken away, you’re killed in a car accident and your life is forever changed, you’re dead.  This is exactly what happens to Hadley.  She visits Dominic and wishes he could see or hear her, she misses him so much.  Her friend Logan explains that she needs to distance herself otherwise she won’t be able to get over him, but she can’t seem to do that.

This is a great book about what possibly could happen if we die.  I know quite a few people that feel there has to be more than one higher power in charge and this book explores that.  It also gave an excellent meaning of soul mates.  I thoroughly enjoyed this unique view of the afterlife. I was drawn in from the very first page and was enraptured with the story, I was interested to see how it would end.  A great read through and through!
