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!
This is the best book written by Sophie Kinsella. I didn't want the book to end. I recommend reading this. Awesome!!!!
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.
