The Love of My Afterlife

Berkley. Jul. 2024. 384p. ISBN 9780593816134. pap. $19. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Dying while eating alone in her apartment wasn’t in Delphie Bookham’s plans, but neither was showing up in the afterlife, where she’s assigned to a too-chatty therapist for the recently deceased. Understanding her new fate in the afterlife is difficult, more so when Delphie bumps into a handsome and charming man she wishes she had met before they both died. He is not meant to stay in the afterlife and is whisked away from Delphie, but the stranger inspires her to fight to return to the land of the living and seek a different outcome for her life. Returning to her quiet apartment with only 10 days to change her fate, Delphie learns that finding one’s soulmate in the busy streets of London is challenging. More surprising is how Delphie’s temporary new lease on life causes her to see her job, her friends, and her neighbors in new ways. Delphie’s true fate isn’t as obvious as the ideas she returned with, but it might be better.
VERDICT Greenwood (He Will Be Mine) offers a charming, unique twist on a plethora of the best romance tropes. Sure to be a favorite of readers who love Sophie Cousens and Katy Birchall.
