NEW BOOK THE FUNERAL PLANNER by author, entrepreneur, Lynn Isenberg is a cross between SEX IN THE CITY meets SIX FEET UNDER according to info in the author's invitation to her Beverly Hills book reading and signing which launches a nationwide book tour for her second novel. The tagline on the front cover of the book (click on thumbnail photo) reads " She's bringing life to a dead business".
"SEX FEET UNDER"????? So if the book is a cross-between SEX IN THE CITY meets SIX FEET UNDER,as Isenberg kids that this would make it "SEX FEET UNDER" or "SIX FEET IN THE CITY". The author describes the tome as an "entrepreneurial comic novel" and promises Pink Lemonade and lively discussions on "How do you want to be remembered" at her book signing.

CHICK LIT MEETS BUSINESS SAVVY is how BOOKLIST describes the tome on Amazon.com From BooklistChick lit meets business savvy in the second novel from Isenberg (My Life Uncovered, 2003). Would-be entrepreneur Madison Banks has longed to run her own business since childhood.... Just when she thinks she has hit the jackpot ... her business school nemesis, the slimy Derek Rogers, beats her to the punch. Disheartened, Maddy finds inspiration in the unlikeliest of places: at the funeral of her best friend, Tara. Maddy believes funerals should celebrate the life of the person and thinks that a funeral-planning business could be profitable and meaningful. With the help of her shrewd uncle, a lover-turned-friend from business school, and a handsome investor, Maddy launches Lights Out only to realize she might again be facing competition from Derek. Smart, perceptive Maddy is a welcome relief from the shoe-obsessed heroines of other chick-lit novels, and Isenberg's exploration of the business world is fresh and fascinating. Kristine Huntley Booklist"Isenberg's delightful debut . . . a hilarious comedy of love and fulfillment in unexpected places."
