Summary

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 . . . 



The Happy Ever After of Rosie Potter is a hilarious, life-affirming and romantic journey through Rosie Potter's afterlife, in which she shares the ghostly tale of how she lived, she died, and she loved (in that order).

After graduating from University of Ulster with first class honours and the Ulster Television Award for her BA in Media Studies, Kate promptly forged a glittering career for herself in waitressing.



Then one day, beside a swimming pool in Australia, Kate decided it was time to write a book. The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) is Kate's debut novel.

The verdict


The Happy Ever Afterlife Of Rosie Potter RIP  (yes, that's a mouthful) was a quick, entertaining read. I love to read stories about ghosts, their unfinished business and all that follows in such scenarios. So no surprise on why I totally jumped at the chance of reading Rosie Potter.


I found the book to be really funny and sad at the same time. I did laugh out loud at some parts here and there. A rare for me. I couldn't help myself cheering Rosie on throughout the book. She's quite likable and real as a character (if you take out the ghost part, that is). The haunting especially, was hilarious. 



So who killed Rosie? I thought I did at first, but I didn't see it coming at all. The ending fits perfectly, when you finally find out. A light, funny, warm chick-lit read, I would definitely recommend The Happy Ever Afterlife Of Rosie Potter for some fun summer time reading.
