*The New York Times and USA Today bestseller!*

‘The perfect rom-com, especially if you like your book editors as sexy as Benji Andor’ Red

‘Smart, quick, delicious’ Emma Straub

‘An absolute delight’ Christina Lauren


Florence Day is a ghost-writer with one big problem. She’s supposed to be penning swoon-worthy novels for a famous romance author but, after a bad break-up, Florence no longer believes in love. And when her strict (but undeniably hot) new editor, Benji Andor, won’t give her an extension on her book deadline, Florence prepares to kiss her career goodbye.

Although when tragedy strikes and Florence has to head home, the last thing she expects to see is a ghost at her front door. Not just any ghost, however, but the stern form of her still very hot – yet now unquestionably dead – new editor.

As sparks start to fly between them, Florence tells herself she can’t be falling for a ghost – even an infuriatingly sexy one. But can Benji help Florence to realise love isn’t dead, after all?

If you fell in love with Beach Read, The Love Hypothesis and The Hating Game, this laugh-out-loud romance packed with sizzling chemistry will give you all the feels!

*Otherworldly Romance*

Florence Day is a ghost writer who writes romance novels for a best selling author. The trouble is she needs an extension and there have already been other previous ones

The biggest problem is she has not written one word. She is so cynical about love due her recent relationship imploding, she starts to think love is a myth therefore how can she write about it when she does not believes it exists.

When she goes to meet the new editor Benji Andor she is struck by how gorgeous he is and she even goes as far as the reintroducing herself to him twice lol

Not only is she a ghost writer she also sees ghosts. Her family runs a funeral home and due to a incident she left the town she grew up in under a cloud.

She even offers to write a different genre but the editor is not for turning. Shortly after this happens she the receives the sad news of her father’s death. So off she goes back to her hometown

When there is a unexpected knock at the door the last person she expects to see is Benji Andor. But he is a ghost. She soon hears that he was involved in an accident.

There ensues a whole host of things funny moments and tender moments as she forms a bond with Benji. But as she realises and knows she cannot have a relationship with a ghost, things start happening to his ghost, he makes a confession about the author she ghost writes for and that in itself brings another realisation for Florence.

Later on there is a twist that I guessed but it did not take away from my enjoyment

Brilliant as an audiobook!

This book is adorable! I listened to the audiobook for this one and loved it, and although I guessed the twist early on, this journey to the conclusion is well written and hooked me in! I loved Benji and Florence, and the narrator captured both personalities perfectly!

I will definitely look for more by this author!
