When Rosie Potter wakes up one morning with what she assumes is the worlds worst hangover, the last thing she expects is to discover that she’s actually dead. With a frustrating case of amnesia, suspicious circumstances surrounding her untimely demise, and stuck wearing her ugliest flannel PJs, Rosie must figure out not only what happened last night, but why on earth she is still here.
This was hilarious right from page one, from the minute she describes feeling like a sausage being squeezed out of its skin I was hooked and did not stop laughing throughout. Strange you might think, considering Rosie is dead, but this is just not a sad story. Yes there are some bitter-sweet moments but this is the true definition of a romantic comedy.
Having the story told from Rosie’s point of view is great and it is so funny watching her adjust to being dead, how she reacts when she realises someone can see her and how she goes about haunting someone who just really ticked her off. Her personality and wit have not diminished just because she is dead and she does keep worrying about those ugly pyjamas she is now stuck wearing.
With a whole host of other characters, this book had a great pace throughout and I did not want to put it down until I found out what actually happened. Rosie found out things about herself and her friends she never knew while she was alive and starts to realise just what she had been missing out on.
I am normally the sort of person who avoids stories where the heroine is dead because I do like predictable happy endings, having said that, this is a good ending and I am so glad I read it.
I highly recommend it and I will very definitely be looking for the author’s next books.
