Blurb: Falling in love is never simple. Especially when you're dead.

When Rosie Potter wakes up one morning with what she assumes is the world's worst hangover, the last thing she expects is to discover that she's actually dead. With a frustrating case of amnesia, suspicious circumstances surrounding her untimely demise, and stuck wearing her ugliest flannel PJs, Rosie must figure out not only what happened last night, but why on earth she's still here.

Slowly the mystery unravels, but there are many other secrets buried in the quiet Irish village of Ballycarragh, and nobody is as innocent as they first appear. Aided by the unlikeliest of allies in her investigation, Rosie discovers that life after death isn't all it's cracked up to be, particularly when you might just be falling in love...

In this hilarious, life-affirming and romantic journey through Rosie Potter's afterlife, she shares the ghostly tale of how she lived, she died, and she loved (in that order).

*First of all I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: I am not a big fan of paranormal but sometimes a ghost in a story works so incredible well, like in Twenties Girls by Sophie Kinsella (one of my favourites), and The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) is one of them. Rosie is probably the most hilarious ghost in history. Reading about her shock at discovering that yes, she was actually dead and therefore she must be a ghost, had me in stitches. And her process figuring out how to act, move and go through objects was even better. 

When you pick up this book, you really have no idea what to expect, but I certainly wasn't expecting laughing so much. Rosie Potter might be dead but she is one of the most lively characters I have read in a while. I instantly loved her and was really curious to know more about her life (and afterlife) and how she died as there's quite a mystery surrounding her passing away. But soon, Rosie finds help to investigate in an old friend, who apparently is the only one who can see her. The interactions between these two were priceless. I loved reading the mischief in their relationship, from when they were just kids to the current peculiar situation. 

But as the story unfolds, it starts turning a bit more serious and I found myself shading more than one tear for this lovely girl who got her life cut short. It certainly makes you think a lot about how short life is and how we always must try to grab all of our chances for happiness. I have to say though that the epilogue of the story is just perfect and put a huge grin in my face. As it gives this lovely story the perfect closure.

The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) is a fun, unique story that I am sure will make you laugh out loud but also will warm your heart. Kate Winter has made an exquisite job creating the perfect balance between humour and grieving. Her style is so fresh and entertaining that I am sure once you start this book, you won't put it down until you're done. If you are looking for a love story with something a bit different, definitely go for this one, you won't be disappointed.
