Publisher's Summary

Sometimes the dead need our help and sometimes, we need theirs.
Angela Panther has a perfect life: A lovely home, an attentive, successful husband, two reasonably behaved children, a devoted dog and a lot of coffee and cupcakes. But while her life might border on mundane, she's got it under control. Until her mother, Fran, dies - and returns as a ghost. It seems Fran's got some unfinished business and she's determined to get it done.
Now Fran's got some nifty celestial superpowers and isn't opposed to using them to levy a little ghostly retribution on her granddaughter's frenemies and even her own daughter, which doesn't make Angela happy.
While Angela's shocked and grateful to have her mother back, she's not thrilled about the portal to the afterlife Fran opened upon her return. Now every ghost in town is knockin' on Angela's psychic door, looking for help - and it's a royal pain in the butt. Now Angela's got to find a way to balance her family life with her new gift and keep her mother in line. And it's a lot for one woman to handle.

What to do when your dead mother arrives?

While the beginning was a little blah, and there seemed to be some fluctuation in the ages of Angela's parents, all that was forgiven when the story gathered relevance and momentum. Geared to the thirty somethings, it has relevance to any parent. The verbiage is timely and most of the book is a laugh a minute. There is, however, some very serious stuff in here and tears will flow. It looks to be the start of a good, fun series. Don't miss this one.
KP does a really great job in this audio performance. She can snark with the best, and has all of the emotions just right, as well as differentiating each character and making them more real.
This review is honest, the book was free.

Not even death can put an end to motherly love.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is so fun. And besides, who has not wished to keep in touch with their loved ones that went ahead of us to the other side?

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the mother-daughter relationship. Even though one of them is dead, it is funny and so real, you can relate at so many levels.

What about Kathy Poelker’s performance did you like?

She is amazing at making you see the characters right in front of you. She specially brings Fran to life, "back" to life, that is! Her voice has so many facets it is so easy to go from a Grandma to a teenager to a boy on the same sentence. Kathy Poelker's performance enhances the story.

If you could rename Unfinished Business, what would you call it?

I wouldn't change it. It is perfect for the story.

Any additional comments?

This has been my first audio-novel and I think Kathy Poelker has set the bar very high for my future audibooks!
