The moment love-phobic Marla Jacobs discovers that the shop next to her Little White Wedding Chapel is to become a funeral parlour, she declares all-out war.

Marla’s chapel in the sleepy Shropshire countryside has become a nation-wide sensation, but the arrival of Funeral Director Gabriel Ryan threatens everything Marla has worked for. She can picture the scene: wedding limos fighting for space in the street with hearses; brides bumping into widows; bouquets being swapped for wreaths

Marla’s not going down without a fight. She enlists a motley crew of weird and wonderful local supporters, and the battle lines are drawn. But, as soon as Marla meets her nemesis, she realises just how much trouble she’s really in. His gypsy curls and Irish lilt make her stomach fizz – how is she supposed to concentrate on destroying him, when half the time she’s struggling not to rip the shirt off his back?

I have to admit that I wanted to read Undertaking Love after I saw the cover. It was cute. And the summary! It sounded like this was going to be an interesting book, especially with Marla and her wedding chapel, and Gabriel with his funeral parlor.

Undertaking Love was written in several point of views, but it focused more on Marla and Gabe. Marla declared war against the funeral parlor next to her wedding chapel. She was sure that her business would go down when her client found out that there’s a funeral parlor next to her shop. When Marla met the Funeral Director, Gabriel Ryan, she wasn’t sure how her plan to put an end to the funeral parlor would go as smoothly, especially when Gabriel was looking so delicious and he was being really nice to her.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Undertaking Love. It was fun from the very beginning. I love how Marla planned to make Gabriel and his funeral parlor leave her town and how Gabriel slowly taken over the hearts of the local, and failing Marla’s plan. I think the story had a really good plot and pace. Kat French did a really good job building up the relationship between Marla and Gabriel. It wasn’t too quick or too slow.

Of course, Undertaking Love wouldn’t be as much fun without the secondary character, Emily and Tom, Ivan and Dora, Dan, Jonny, Rupert, Melanie and the others. Each and every character contributed something to make this book enjoyable. I definitely recommend Undertaking Love to those who love sweet romance read. There were lots of hilarious moments, romance and just the right amount of drama.
