Blog Tour: Death By Roses, #Review and #Giveaway

Hi guys. I just read a really cool book. It is called Death By Roses, by Vivian R. Probst.






After Art McElroy returns home carrying a bouquet of yellow roses, his wife Mae Rose is found dead in her bathroom. Mae Rose’s humiliating death carries over into her afterlife when in Heaven Mae Rose reflects on the life she lived on earth. While in Heaven she sees all of the happy possibilities that could have been, including a husband who didn’t cheat on her, and she interferes with her family’s lives from Heaven. Mae Rose’s interference grants her a one-way ticket out of Heaven and leaves her trapped in the body of Mary Lee Broadmoor, a dying cantankerous horror screenwriter who craves an Oscar. Can these two spirited women share the same body? Will Mae Rose get her second chance with her husband? While untangling a complicated web of relationships at the core of their lives, Mae Rose and Mary Lee must learn to make the most of their second chance- or die trying in DEATH BY ROSES




My take on book

I just finished this book and it is a very interesting one. Death by Roses has some different aspects to it. Sometimes it is quite humorous, and others it is serious. It also has sort of a macabre side mixed into it too. 

Just from how the main character dies (while on the toilet!) sets of a series of events that are very entertaining. In an interesting turn of events Mae Rose ends up in someone else's body, and a lot of fun, weird and different things happen from there. I don't want to give too much of this away, and give you any spoilers - but it is a fun read all the same. I really enjoyed the many twists, and turns that this story took, and it kept me interested and reading until the very end. 

Ultimately, I think, this book is a story about love and marriage. And that you shouldn't take that for granted or you might regret it. I would thoroughly recommend this book to you.
