This Morning I Woke Up Dead by Mindy Larson

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

What if everything in this life was really just a test, a training ground if you will for another life on another realm of existence? That is the underlying premise behind the love story in This Morning I Woke Up Dead. It is an emotional journey with Hadley who has passed on and the love of her life Dominic who was left behind.

Ms. Larson has created not only this world but one before and one after as part of her story, it is heartbreaking as well as heartwarming. It is a wonderful love story that transcends death. With secondary characters also tied into the story in surprising ways it draws you in. Be sure to have some tissues handy when you read this.

I at first had difficulty wrapping my head around what the author was trying to convey by saying we were all already dead and there are a few places that I felt the story slowed down quite a bit. However overall this is a good read and an emotional offering by a new indie-author.
