Lara has always had an overactive imagination. Now she wonders if she is losing her mind. Normal twenty-something girls just don't get visited by ghosts! But inexplicably, the spirit of Lara's great aunt Sadie - in the form of a bold, demanding Charleston-dancing girl - has appeared to make one last request: Lara must track down a missing necklace Sadie simply can't rest without. Lara's got enough problems of her own. Her start-up company is floundering, her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, and she's just been dumped by the love of her life. But as Lara spends time with Sadie, life becomes more glamorous and their treasure hunt turns into something intriguing and romantic. Could Sadie's ghost be the answer to Lara's problems and can two girls from different times end up learning something special from each other? Everybody loves Sophie Kinsella: "I almost cried with laughter" Daily Mail "Hilarious . . . you'll laugh and gasp on every page" Jenny Colgan "Properly mood-altering . . . funny, fast and farcical. I loved it" Jojo Moyes "A superb tale. Five stars!" Heatshow more

Review quote

"Best read with a cold glass of wine at sunset (with tissues)" * The Times * "This is Kinsella at her quirkiest and best, and Lara's gradual appreciation of the fact that there's a bright young thing trapped inside every ageing body adds real pathos to this otherwise light-hearted and sweetly comic novel" * Daily Telegraph * "Kinsella's latest offering is a classic chick-lit read: light, entertaining and often funny too. This is essential reading for anyone looking for a dose of escapism this summer" * Sunday Express * "Wonderfully witty tale...You'll love this quirky read - it's just as girly, exciting and fabulously funny as Sophie's other gems *****" * Heat * "A captivating page-turner" * Woman *show more
