Possibly the most uplifting, hilarious and heart-warming book about death that I’ve ever read. Kirsty Greenwood’s books are always a treat and this is no exception. I absorbed the chapters every spare moment that I had – Kirsty’s ability to paint a heroine you will root for from start to finish is nothing short of magic itself. It’s my favourite read of 2024 and I only wish it had carried on for another 8,000 pages.

Be still my bookish romantic heart. This book has everything. There’s magic, romance, comedy, side characters, twists, turns and existential crisis inducing storylines. It has a host of key familiar romance tropes but written in a refreshingly unique way. It’s not predictable, you will laugh out loud, you will fear the worst, you may get the happily ever after. Maybe.

We’re delighted that The Love of my Afterlife will be a Tea Leaves and Reads Book Club choice later this Summer. It deserves to be read and adored by so many people. Kirsty Greenwood, you’ve done it again!

About the Book

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…
