Woke Up Dead

405 pages5 hours


A tragic accident ends wheelchair-bound Jennie Carmichael’s life. Her biggest regret: never summoning the courage to tell her private eye boss, Sam Magee, that she was in love with him. Now it’s too late.

Or is it? Jennie awakens to find she has been given a second chance. Miraculously, she has come back in the body of Maxine Lizbon, a woman who can walk, dance, and hopefully win Sam’s heart. She’s elated ... until she finds out that Maxine is Sam’s detested ex-wife.

Then she discovers that she’s in terrible danger. Maxine was murdered, and her killer is now stalking Jennie. Now Jennie must convince a reluctant Sam to protect her body ... and to fall in love with her soul.
