Heaven Can Wait - Win a Copy

So good, even he wanted to read it.

The night before Lucy Brown’s wedding, she said good-bye to her fiancé Dan thinking life could not be more perfect. The next day, she was dead.

Not ready to leave Dan, she chooses to become a ghost rather than go to heaven, however she soon learns that to become a ghost she first has to complete a task; an almost impossible task and only twenty-one days in which to fulfil it. Lucy is sent to Limbo, which turns out to be a grubby flat shared with two other wannabe ghosts who have their own problems to sort out. She discovers her friend Anna has an agenda of her own and despite Lucy’s recent demise is making a move on heartbroken Dan wanting him for herself.

I was in the middle of reading another book when my exhausted postman delivered my copy of Heaven Can Wait, and knowing I had a few days off to look forward to, decided I would keep it until then. Intentions are one thing, but having gazed at the gorgeous cover, I decided to take a sneaky peek and read the first couple of lines. Two days later I finished, the other book long forgotten.

If you haven’t already bought your copy and read it – why not – you’re missing a treat. I loved Cally’s book and laughed out loud within moments of starting to read it. It’s funny, clever and thought provoking, and the ending is quite perfect.

So, for those of you who haven’t yet bought your copy, or want another one for a friend as a present. Please leave a ‘pick me’ comment by Wednesday, 11th November, and I’ll ask my daughter to pull a name out of a hat (or bowl, or something) and send the lucky winner their copy as soon as I know who it is.

It's such a fab book! And now it has Grumpy endorsement as well!

I couldn't put it down either, and like you was rewarded with the perfect ending!

I must definitely train Molls to read - she's missing out! Please Pick Me Debs -= sounds a great book!

Sandra Mackness said...

It's on my list of books I HAVE TO READ! What a lovely idea to offer a copy - if I win I'll give it to the ghost who lives under the stairs - and hope it keeps him from untidying everything :)

DJ Kirkby said...

LilyS said...

I've read it (hence wont enter) and LOVED it and I also stopped reading other book for this one. I just couldnt resist

Sandy Calico said...

Pick me please! :-)

Bernadette said...

It is a marvellous book!
As I had finished it before the end of publication day I'd rather someone else had the free one so they can enjoy it too - but that doesn't mean I won't be buying copies for friends nearer Christmas time. It's made my shopping plans a whole lot simpler!

Cait O'Connor said...

Sounds like a great read, I could read it and donate to the library.

gaelikaa said...

Please count me in Debs - out here in India, there's hardly anything I'm ever eligible for.....

Queenie said...

I too would rather someone else had the free copy, but thought I'd add my voice to the 'read it, loved it' chorus.

Debs said...

jan - I think he's only pretending to read. Maybe he's trying to look intellectual for once.

flowerpot, sandra, dj, valerie, sandy, cait, gaelikaa - I shall put your names into the hat.

Lily, bernadette, queenie - it was a great book, I loved it.

Troy said...

It sounds a bit girly so instead of my name please put Mrs Troy's name into the hat.

Colette McCormick said...

Grumpy is gorgeous.

Debs said...

troy - will do, she would love this book.

colette - thanks, he is rather adorable - when he's not barking at imaginary things.

KatW said...

I love the picture of Grumpy.

I won a copy of Cally's book & am reading it now. Very witty and enjoyable - a great prize but if you don't win it, buy it - is my advice.

Photo of Grumpy has meant I'm about to start work with a smile. Thanks.

ChrisH said...

I feel very guilty that I haven't bought a copy yet, but life has got in the way a bit lately so I would love to be in the draw for a copy, please!

Debs said...

kat - congratulations on winning a copy of Cally's book and thanks for enjoying the pic of his Grumpiness.

chrish - I'll pop your name in the hat too.

Andrea Franco-Cook said...

You've peaked my curiosity...I won't be able to wait until a winner is selected...Now I have to buy the book:)

Kaye Manro said...

This sounds like a fab read, Debs. I love the opening line. We need to put it up on my blog's opening lines day. If that is okay with you!
