Lara Lington has just seen a ghost. She is at her great aunt Sadie’s funeral when it happens. When the ghost talks she claims to be Sadie and she demands her necklace. Lara is completely confused and has no idea what necklace. But Sadie is persistent and Lara agrees to help her locate her necklace.
First, Lara must stop the funeral so she claims Sadie was murdered. This brings outrage since Sadie was 105 years old. But Lara stays the course and it buys her some time. Her first stop is the nursing home Sadie lived at. There is a picture of Sadie there wearing the necklace. Now Lara knows what she is looking for.
But before Lara can do any real searching she must get her work life in order. She runs a head hunting business with her friend Natalie. Unfortunately, Natalie decided to take a vacation for who knows how long and now Lara is stuck trying to run the business on her own. It is made harder by the fact that Sadie keeps bugging her about the necklace, her family thinks she is crazy and her uncle has a secret. And to top it all off Sadie is hot for some random guy and convinces Lara to go out on a date with him.
What happens next is a series of events that are funny, touching and have a bit of mystery. Sophie Kinsella has written another fabulous book. I recommend all of her books. She also writes under the name Madeleine Wickham.
