****Currently being adapted for TV ****
Bridget Sway is newly dead. And confused.
Instead of cloud cars and harp-playing cherubs, the afterlife is working a full-time job that doesn't pay and a heinous communal living situation with housemates who have no concept of privacy or personal space. As if that wasn't bad enough, on her first day at work Bridget finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker.
With the afterlife police looking to pin the murder on Bridget, her new best friend and ex-PI, Sabrina, suggests they solve the murder themselves. But with a handsome parole officer watching her every move and the afterlife police dogging her every step, solving the murder is easier than it sounds.
If you like sassy heroines who break all the rules, laugh out loud humour and whodunnits that keep you guessing until the very end, then tag along with Bridget Sway on her afterlife adventures.

Sway is away....
As an avid reader, I have struggled to find the genre that this excellent series would fall under. I can best describe it as: a recently dead Millennial Miss Marple meets "Beetlejuice" - wordy, but you get the drift.
Scrap any previous literary descriptions of the "Afterlife" and immerse yourself in the unique world of our heroine, Miss Sway, as she struggles to adjust to navigating her death, mandatory support meetings, lack of suitable attire and murder.
This is the first book in the series and the characters continue to be engaging, singular and well rounded in their development.
A truly enjoyable read and I bought the remainder of the series on the strength of this debut....and some wine; I bought some wine just to "enhance" my reading.
Thrills! Chills! And Spills (of blood)!
Who’d of thought being dead would be so - annoying. Or that stories of such would be so entertaining.
At least it lets you travel. Once your probation is completed. And you filled in the forms. And waited another 10 years before finding out it’s been rejected (which probably require more forms).
Funny and mysterious and the right amount of weird, I highly recommend it.
