When Faith Carson wakes up on a hospital ceiling looking down on her body in a coma, it’s a bad start to the week. A very bad start. She has no idea who she is or how she got there or why, and the biggest mystery of all is why she married the schmuck who wants her ventilator switched off.
As if that’s not enough Faith has a dead gran haunting her, a young daughter missing her, and one devilishly delicious man making her wish she could have a second chance at life. And maybe she can, if she finds a way back into her body and wakes up by Friday. But if she doesn’t, this will be her last bad week–ever.
Nate Sutherland decided long ago he’d settle for friendship if he couldn’t have Faith’s heart. But now, as she nears death, he’s going to have to listen to his feelings in a whole new way–and act. Because if he doesn’t, this week will be the worst damn week of his life. He’ll lose everything he’s ever loved.

The Trouble With Dying, by Author Maggie Le Page, pulled me in right away. I loved how the story was told from the POV of a patient in a coma, who was having an out-of-body experience and was able to float in and out of hospital rooms as her family and friends came to visit her in her comatose state. This made for a rather unique plot!
What I wasn’t expecting was the whodunit type mystery that unfolded. Comatose Faith wasn’t aware of how she got to be there in that hospital, fighting for her life. The clues gradually present themselves and just when you think you have it all figured out, WHAM, the author hits you with another curve ball!
The conclusion was very satisfying on it’s own, but the author threw in an epilogue which gave this story a happily-ever-after ending. I absolutely enjoyed this story and would recommend it to fans of humorous chick lit awash in the paranormal. 5 Stars.
