This book is told from the main character, Katie’s point of view and in the first person. It’s not a common thing for me to see books written in this POV but I have to say it gave the story a sense of closeness to the character and relatability that couldn’t have been achieved any other way.
Katie as a character was well fleshed out and even her reactions felt realistic in every way I look at them. You don’t suddenly wake up and realize you’re dead but everything is fine, right? laugh
I loved the flow of the story. Once I was over the first chapter I couldn’t put the book down until I was done with it. I found it fascinating and beautiful, written in a very tasteful and human way.
The romance aspect added to the story was something I was not expecting, considering our main character is dead. It was a pleasant surprise and one that made me enjoy the book even more since I’m a romance reader at heart.
I would recommend this book to other romance readers because sometimes it’s good to get out of your niche, but with this book, they could find some familiar aspects even though technically it’s not the same.

When she’s not writing, she likes to walk, paint and study karate. She loves the idea of finding magic in ordinary places; as a child she and her grandmother used to visit the woods on Midsummer’s eve to look for fairies – whether they found any or not, is a story for another time.
