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 fiancĂ©’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.
