Yes, it was a bit predictable at times, and far-fetched if you don’t believe in ghosts or angels, but the storyline and characters made for an enjoyable read.
I could picture the action as I read, and wouldn’t be surprised if this book was made into a film.
It's absolutely brilliant, laugh out loud funny at times, and very sad at others.
Our heroine, Lara, is just one of the funniest characters I have come across and has a heart of gold. Her great aunt, Sadie, is the ghost who is her guardian angel at times, and extremely annoying to Lara at others.
The story races along with Lara trying to reunite Sadie with her necklace before she is cremated. Other revelations come to light along the way and, of course, the romance side of it too is hilarious at times.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and, as its my first Sophie Kinsella book, I can honestly say it will not be my last.
Good, enjoyable fun.
The story revolves around Lara, who is struggling to understand why her boyfriend, Josh, split up with her. She's also trying to cope with a failing headhunting business after her supposed friend and partner disappeared on holiday to Goa. In the midst of this confusion, Lara attends the funeral of her great aunt Sadie, a woman she barely knew. However, it looks like Sadie isn't really ready to move on and her ghost begins to spend rather a lot of time with Lara in the form of her twenty-something flapper former self. Sadie is obsessed with finding a particular necklace and ropes Lara into helping her. Along the way, she is rather distracted by a handsome man that she likes the look of and wants to date- something of a problem when you're a ghost, invisible to everyone except your great-niece.
I really enjoyed the humour in this book, mainly stemming from Sadie's outrageous behaviour, and I laughed out loud many times. However, the story of Sadie's necklace evolves into something more than just a family mystery and her attempts to date a total stranger change Lara's life as well. I found the last 50-60 pages of the book extremely satisfying and very moving in an unexpected way and I shed quite a few tears.
I highly recommend this book.
NB// The Kindle version of this book is well-formatted and without errors :)
