Making sure dead things stay buried is the family business.
For generations, the Evans women have taken care of laying the residents of their Southeast Texas town to rest at Evans Funeral Parlor. Occasionally, one of the quiet rural community’s dead become restless, and it’s the Evanses’ job to put them back in their grave. But this summer has been especially hot, and the dead have begun to rise, ripping the peace—and the throats—out of the town. As four generations of Evans women fight to keep the dead in their graves, long-buried family secrets are forced into the light, and they must confront the truth that the biggest monster may in fact be one of their own.
A dead woman’s tongue, a missing dog, and a strange newcomer are law enforcement’s only clues to sort out the hell recently unleashed on their small town—even when all tracks lead back to the Evans women.
A story about monstrous secrets and the power of motherly love, BLESS YOUR HEART is a multi-generational story told from multiple POVS of a diverse cast of characters who fight to save their town from the Strigoi—the original vampire.
