Coming home from a Hawaiian vacation with her best girlfriends, Lucy Fisher is stunned to find everything she owns tossed out on her front lawn, the locks changed, and her fiancé’s phone disconnected—plus she’s just lost her job. With her world spinning wildly out of her control, Lucy decides to make a new start and moves upstate to live with her sister and nephew.
But then things take an even more dramatic turn: A fatal encounter with public transportation lands Lucy not in the hereafter but in the nearly hereafter. She’s back in school, learning the parameters of spooking and how to become a successful spirit in order to complete a ghostly assignment. If Lucy succeeds, she’s guaranteed a spot in the next level of the afterlife—but until then, she’s stuck as a ghost in the last place she would ever want to be.
I managed to snag my copy of this book through the GoodReads FirstReads giveaway and it sure was a lucky win for me! I loved this book and plan on reading more from Laurie Notaro in the future. Well written with a unique story line this offbeat book kept me guessing. Filled with twists, turns and enough mystery to keep me guessing I had a hard time setting this one aside; one really late night was all it took to read it....Of course after I finished I ended up laying awake thinking about it.
