On the Day of the Dead, at the Solona Music Hall, Altagracia Quintero meets John Burns-just two weeks too late. Grace, as her friends call her, has a Ford Motor Company tattoo running down her leg and grease worked deep into her hands. She works at Sanchez Motorworks customizing hot rods. Finding the line in a classic car is her calling. Now Grace has to find the line in her own life. Grace loves John, and John loves her, and that would be wonderful, except that John, like Grace, has unfinished business: he's haunted by the childhood death of his younger brother. He's never stopped feeling responsible. Before their relationship can find its resolution, the two of them will have to teach each other about life and love, about hot rods and Elvis Presley, and about why it's necessary to let some things go.

Professional reviews

"Grace loves old cars, rockabilly music, and her boyfriend, John. The fact that she's dead does not diminish these feelings. Twice a year Grace crosses over to the living world, where she and John can be together. Still, Grace knows she must find a way to go to the afterlife, even if doing so takes her from John. Tai Sammons and Paul Garcia share narration duties for both Grace's and John's point of view. Sammons has a warm, rich voice; her Grace is tough, smart, and likable, while her John is tender and reserved. Garcia's gentle tenor has sharp edges that keep one riveted. Between them, they make this a charming love story. G.D. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
