I have read all of Sophie Kinsella's books and this was my favorite! The story is very original. There are several interesting things happening at once during the book, which made it hold my attention. I read the entire second half of the book in one sitting!

I could not put down this book and devoured it in under 24 hours, even with a full nights sleep. This is my first read by Sophie Kinsella, and I can't wait to discover more of her books. I constantly burst out laughing at these precious characters, and even though I had nothing in common with them, I could easily relate to their awkwardness. In fact, their kookiness is a great part of their charm. The ones in this book who appear to have it all together are NOT the hero and heroine, which I loved. In fact, there are two wonderful heroines in this book (one's a ghost), and I cannot decide which one I liked better. This book left me extremely satisfied!

I love Sophie Kinsellaand have read all of her books. I find they all start out a bit slow, just as this one did but once you're a quarter of the way through it, you can't put it down. This was a great read!

This follows the life of Lara Lington who is suddenly "haunted" by her great aunt Sadie. Sceptical at first, Lara eventually feels that Sadie is her guardian angel and helps Sadie find the one thing that she needs to rest in peace - her beautiful dragonfly necklace. In the process, Lara believes her great aunt was murdered, asks a handsome stranger on a date, and talks to Sadie (who no one else can see) so much that people start to think she has lost her mind - which is easy to believe as she hasn't been acting right since her break-up with her true love, Josh. Eventually, Lara discovers that someone in her family has been harbouring a secret that will ruin them and Lara, with the help of Sadie, decides to expose them and finally set things right. It is fun, feisty and an absolutely brilliant read.

I loved all of her books, and it started out really funny, but then it was not as funny as the rest of her books. Her best books are the Shopaholic ones. They are rare gems.

I love all of Sophie Kinsella's books. I especially like her non-shopaholic series books (but the Shopaholic series is good too).

Lara Lington is the niece of a man who started a famous branch of coffee shops. Her last name is very recognizable. The book opens with her family gathered for the funeral of her great aunt Sadie. The funeral is really sad. The only people there are Lara, her parents and sister, her famous uncle and his wife and their daughter. That's it. And none of them even knew Sadie at all. And none of them want to be there. There are no flowers. Sadie suddenly appears to Lara and insists she can not be buried without her necklace. This sets off a hilarious chain or events as they try to find the necklace so Sadie can rest in peace.

Through this process Lara really gets to know the 23 year old version of her great aunt Sadie. They become great friends, have some really fun adventures together and Sadie even inadvertently helps Lara find love.

I loved it! I loved the characters. I loved the adventures. It was all great!

And now I will put in my last will and testament that I want everyone to be served a cocktail or glass of champagne upon entrance to my funeral! :)

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Sophie is one of my favorite authors.But, the first half of twenties girl fell flat. I refused to give up on it and; like always an amazing second half was delivered. It Will proudly stand up on the shelf with he rest of her books.
