Synopsis:
Abigail Farmer knows one thing, the funeral home business… By day, she works at her family’s funeral home. By night, she lives alone on its upper floor. With her stepfather, Sam, about to retire, Abigail is convinced there is only one person who can run the business effectively, her.

However, her life at the funeral home changes when Hasten Holmes arrives. Ready for his first day on the job Hasten is met by a reluctant Abigail who hopes Sam sends him packing after they exchange unpleasantries. Reluctant to get too close to anyone, especially someone who’s associated with Stu—Sam’s lowlife friend and wannabe business partner—Abigail deliberately keeps things strictly professional between them. Then something unexpected happens…

Abigail’s plans to take charge of the family business take a drastic turn when she finds the mutilated body of one of their clients, and it becomes apparent that there’s more going on in the funeral home as a sinister plot begins to reveal itself.

~Try an Excerpt!~
Abigail and Hasten stood side by side propped against the concrete wall of the nursing home.
“Do they normally look like that?” Hasten mustered up enough nerve to ask as they gawked at the dead man splayed on the bed in front of them.
“No,” choked Abigail.
Hasten reached in his pocket and pulled out two crushed cigarettes. “I’ve been trying to quit,” he said, putting the end of one in his mouth and offering her the other. Abigail shook her head at the peace offering.
“Those things will kill you,” she said, still staring at the old man.
Hasten lit the cigarette with a silver lighter he had pulled from his other pocket.  “Doesn’t matter,” he said, taking it out of his mouth and pointing at the corpse. “Either way, we wind up like him.”
Abigail stepped away from the wall, still fixated on the old man’s glassy eyes staring back at her, and his mouth, frozen, agape in a silent primal scream. Was that true? Did everyone end up like this – gasping, struggling, fighting for those last few breaths, only to die forgotten, alone?
“Goodbye, old timer,” Hasten whispered. He patted the man’s shoulder and tried to close his eyes, but they shot open. 

“That only works in movies,” Abigail said. “He’s been dead too long.”

    1. Hi Andra! Thanks so much for hosting today. Hope you're having a great day. It's a beautiful fall day here in Virginia. I've been trying to get some writing done but we have an eight week old kitten that is going through an "attack everything" stage. :)
