The Love of My Afterlife




How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days meets The Good Place. A hilarious and heartwarming story about finding love where you least expect it and learning what it really means to live...

‘This book has it all. Humor, heart, and a heroine I was desperately rooting for’ Colleen Hoover
‘An utterly charming romcom that is as hilarious as it is poignant’ Carley Fortune
_______________

If she wasn’t dead already, Delphie would be dying of embarrassment. She’s entered the afterlife wearing the sort of pyjamas you don’t want anyone to see and finds herself face-to-face with the most handsome man she’s ever encountered. And he’s smiling at her.

As they start to chat, everything else becomes background noise – until someone comes running out of a door, yelling something about a huge mistake, and sends the dreamy stranger back down to earth.

In a twist of fate, Delphie is offered a deal in which she can return to her previous life and reconnect with the mysterious man she’s sure is her soulmate.

The challenge? She only has ten days to find him.

Ten days to make him fall for her.

Oh, and he has no recollection of them ever having met…
