"I LOVED this book! ...Funny, breathtaking, hopeful, and dreamy.”—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

A disillusioned millennial ghostwriter who, quite literally, has some ghosts of her own, has to find her way back home in this sparkling adult debut from national bestselling author Ashley Poston.

Florence Day is the ghostwriter for one of the most prolific romance authors in the industry, and she has a problem—after a terrible breakup, she no longer believes in love. It’s as good as dead.
When her new editor, a too-handsome mountain of a man, won't give her an extension on her book deadline, Florence prepares to kiss her career goodbye. But then she gets a phone call she never wanted to receive, and she must return home for the first time in a decade to help her family bury her beloved father.
For ten years, she's run from the town that never understood her, and even though she misses the sound of a warm Southern night and her eccentric, loving family and their funeral parlor, she can’t bring herself to stay. Even with her father gone, it feels like nothing in this town has changed. And she hates it.
Until she finds a ghost standing at the funeral parlor’s front door, just as broad and infuriatingly handsome as ever, and he’s just as confused about why he’s there as she is.
Romance is most certainly dead . . . but so is her new editor, and his unfinished business will have her second-guessing everything she’s ever known about love stories.

This book!!!! 🫠🤍

This is the first time I’ve ever left a book review.
I thought listening to this book was gonna be a nice refresher from what I have been reading. Boy was I right! It’s so beautifully written. The story line was incredible. I felt like I was in the book with the narrator as I was listening. I cried, laughed, and “you go girl”ed through the whole thing. Please create more!
From the authors note at the end…this was my book. Thank you!!🤍

Such a waste of time and money.

It took me MONTHS to finish this. I could not read the physical book because she enunciated so many words for emphasis. But I had heard so many good things about this book so I downloaded the audiobook. I wasted money on both. I have never read a main character so whiny, self-obsessed, and annoying with the most negative attitude for no reason. Her “love interest” is so dull I could barely stand it. I deserve a prize (or a refund) for actually finishing this. I only finished it so I could genuinely warn people against it.
