The Grimy and The Greedy by Meaghan Curley
The Grimy And The Greedy is a paranormal thriller with a bit of a comedy sub theme; in short it is about the death of a woman and her long reach from the grave.
Fizzy is at work when she learns of her Grandmother’s death; the news does not come as too much of a shock as few people liked the woman. Fizzy even throws a party to celebrate. However, Grandma Jeanette is still pulling strings from her grave and one of those demands is that Fizzy will attend her funeral.
Jeanette also holds a bar owner to a favour that he owes her; he is given the task of getting Fizzy to the funeral, or his own mother will die.
The story is fast-paced and full of twists, so much that at times I wasn’t quite sure what was happening. It’s a mix of dreams, fantasy and the supernatural all drawn together by colourful descriptions and language; I wouldn’t recommend it to those easily offended by swearing.
