‘I LOVED this book! Funny, hopeful and dreamy’ ALI HAZELWOOD

‘An absolute delight’ CHRISTINA LAUREN


Florence Day is a ghost-writer with one big problem. She’s supposed to be penning swoon-worthy novels for a famous romance author but, after a bad break-up, Florence no longer believes in love. And when her strict (but undeniably hot) new editor, Benji Andor, won’t give her an extension on her book deadline, Florence prepares to kiss her career goodbye.

When tragedy strikes and Florence has to head home, the last thing she expects to see is a ghost at her front door. Not just any ghost, however, but the stern form of her still very hot – yet now unquestionably dead – new editor.

As sparks start to fly between them, Florence tells herself she can’t be falling for a ghost – even an infuriatingly sexy one. But can Benji help Florence to realise love isn’t dead, after all?

If you fell in love with Funny Story, This Spells Love and The Hating Game, this laugh-out-loud romance will sweep you away.

Publisher Review

'We could all use a good summer ghost story, and you can't get much better than Ashley Poston's adult fiction debut.' Entertainment Weekly 'This is a book to make you laugh and cry.' New York Times 'I LOVED this book. A beautiful, poignant story, full of beautiful, poignant characters... at the end all the pieces fall perfectly into place, and the picture that they form is at once touching, funny, breathtaking, hopeful, and dreamy.' Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis 'Smart, quirky and funny. I loved this one.' Sarah Morgan, The Sunday Times bestselling author of Beach House Summer 'What fun - the Emily Henry/Casey McQuiston reader (aka me) is going to gobble this book up. Smart, quick, delicious.' Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of This Time Tomorrow 'An absolute and unexpected delight. Voicy and quirky and fun; the pages will probably sparkle (but with black glitter).' Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners 'The Dead Romantics takes so many things I love-quirky heroines, found families, cozy small towns, fanfics, GHOSTS (!!!)-and gives them all a fresh, fun, thoroughly modern spin. This is truly a RomCom to die for!' Rachel Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of Reckless 'This book made me fall in love, broke my heart then reassembled it at least twice, and left me swooning. A hauntingly romantic, hilariously heartwarming story. Ashley Poston is the real deal.' Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Not Your Average Hot Guy 'Poston['s] sparkling dialogue makes the characters come alive - even the dead ones. Readers won't be able to put this down.' Publishers Weekly, starred review
