    1. Accidents Happen is the latest novel by Sharon Karaa and it doesn’t disappoint!Fans will already know about her intelligent plotlines, her amazing ear for dialogue, her witty and original humour and her well-drawn characters. Accidents Happen has all of this a-plenty and more besides. Many masters of the comic story weave strands of pathos and melancholy through the laughs (think Carla Lane or David Nicholls) and this gives this novel a depth and interest that elevates it beyond farce or slaps [...]

    2. What doesn't kill you"Normal is a pink unicorn with gossamer wings and a golden mane—it’s mythical, it doesn’t exist."Tabitha is preparing to marry John when a freak accident sends her world spinning out of control. Bizarre and funny with some eccentric characters who felt very familiar, it's a sweet and quirky story of family, friends, trust and soulmates, with a healthy dose of the afterlife. Enjoyable, easy read that left me with a smile.

    5. We start out with Tabitha our female lead talking about the multiple ways she could have died instead of the way she really does die. Tabitha dies eight days before her wedding. She is about to marry a much older gentleman John.

We get to meet the rest of the people in her life and see from an observational point of view how [...]

    6. This was a fun fast read. It all starts when Tabitha dies one day. It was a freak accident on just a normal day. The problem is, it wasn’t her time to die. Then something stranger happens and the soul collector on the scene ends up in her body! Now she's stuck and Death’s hands are tied till the council can meet to decide her future. So she’s got a super sexy but awfully arrogant partner that she must work with to collect souls till the council meets. All while Mort the collector is living [...]

    7. Piquant afterlife romanceIf you like your romance sharp and funny rather than sickly-sweet, this is perfect for light holiday reading. Witty turns of phrase and enjoyable twists of plot lift it above the clichés of the genre but we are always hoping for that HEA – we just don’t know how the writer will overcome barriers that include irritating admin in the afterworld as well as promises made in this one. God is harassed and just can’t get the staff!I don’t usually read romances unless t [...]

    8. Tabitha Brownlee's journey from pre-bride jitters to true love begins with a bizarre accident and an attempt to save a life, then suddenly dumps her to a comedic version of "the other side" where she tries to negotiate a bureaucratic snarl-up that seems incapable of reversing her accidental and unauthorized death. While Tabitha's fights a disaster-prone battle to reunite with her body, the author gradually unveils the loving woman beneath this heroine's tough outer shell. ACCIDENTS HAPPEN is the [...]

    9. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. When I began to read this book I was a little confused as to where the storyline was going and was it going to be worth it to read on. I am so glad that I did. The book is a quick pace storyline and the characters are exceptionally well written. Pick up a copy of this book and enjoy. You won't be sorry you did.

    10. I won't lie, this book was odd. That said, it was a really good read. It was a little sad and sometimes I felt it dragged a tiny bit but it read well. It was a very interesting and engaging plot. Essentially highlighting life's many mistakes and how they sometimes lead to something good. The romance was sweet as well. Overall a really good read.

    11. Haha!This was a fun read! I was going to give it 4 stars, but the little author's note at the end bumped it to five. Suspend reality enough to allow that not everything has to make sense, and you'll get a kick out of this book, too. :)
