Review of Scarlett by Helen Powers

When Scarlett, a nurse at St. Rose Hospital makes the
decision to murder one of her patients after hearing a voice in her head, she meets Death, the Grim Reaper personified, and only she seems to be able to see him. Unsure of her sanity, she decides to find out for herself whether or not he is real. Taking matters
into her own hands, Scarlett turns down a path that she never thought she would. With people’s lives hanging in the balance, her decisions impact the whole city, but who could blame her, when a coffee date with Death himself is on the line?

My review: 4 stars
I loved the premise of this book. It was engaging and pulled you in from the first word. It was both thrilling and exciting watching Scarlett go through the motions. Alongside her own choices, there are some others that add a bit of intrigue to the story. I read the book in one sitting and found it both a quick read, but also quite developed. I loved Scarlett and the friendship she had with Derek. It was a great book and my only issue was that some of it felt a bit rushed. Other than that, loved it, and will be looking for more from this author.
