Summary from Goodreads:

When one story ends, another begins.
Evangeline lived a long fulfilling life. Loving mother and wife, she had everything she could wish for…until a tragic car accident took it all away from her.
Awakening in a new world with the body of a young woman, Evangeline doesn’t remember anything about her life, not even her own name. Luckily she has godparents to help guide her in this new society of the dead. As she struggles to fit in, deep inside, she can sense something is missing, a part of her that she can’t recall. When a mysterious man claims he can help get her memory back if she agrees to keep their nocturnal meetings a secret, she can’t refuse. Everything about him screams trouble, but she can’t seem to stay away. Every moment spent with him makes her feel alive again.
Is she really prepared to unveil her past completely, from beginning to end? Everything is not as it seems in her new found home, and her new life may also end in tragedy.
Rest in fear, Evangeline.

My Opinion:

For Better or For Worse by Ingrid Nickelsen is a beautifully written novel based on afterlife and death. The main theme of this novel is paranormal romance. The story follows a happily married woman named Evangeline who died in an accident. She mysteriously appears in the body of a young woman with a memory loss and is unaware of her whereabouts. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of death and afterlife novels but Nickelsen wrote such a phenomenal novel that I could not put it down. Eva's character was strong and determined which are two qualities lacking in many modern female protagonists. I loved the unique setting and amazing plot twists which were included in this novel. The mysteriousness included in the plot was also written brilliantly. It was truly hard to imagine that this novel was Nickelsen's debut novel as this novel was absolutely amazingly. I adored how we could follow Eva's footsteps and uncover all her secrets and past memories one by one. Eva and Will, who are the main protagonists, had an amazing character development since the beginning of the novel to the end. The amazing new truths and past learnings will shock readers throughout this novel. Overall I rate this novel a 4.5 stars out of 5 stars as I believe this novel was interesting, well written and greatly set out. The "afterlife" world building was magnificent- I felt really connected to the characters and the world. I recommend this novel for paranormal readers who loves romance and afterlife novels. Thank you Ingrid Nickelsen for sending me this ebook, I greatly appreciate it.
