When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie-a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance-mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Never mind that Lara has her own problems--which Sadie could care less about. Will this sparring duo ever find what they're after?… (més)

This is my favourite Kinsella book. I'm no connoisseur of ghost stories and if I'm honest, may not have picked this up if I'd known that's what it was. What a loss that would have been because I loved the story, one that made me laugh out loud many times. When aunt Sadie died at 105 years old the family attended the funeral although they had neglected her for years, and in Lara's case they had never even met. Suddenly Sadie's ghost appears to Lara during the funeral demanding her dragonfly neckace be found before the final step is taken. Lara is shocked into taking drastic action to pause the procedure. The 1923 version of Sadie is utterly enchanting and she just wants to have fun dancing, dressing up, drinking cocktails. A warm fuzzy story that is perfect for lifting the spirits (pardon the pun). This is chick lit at its best. ( )

What a heartfelt tear-jerker! What started off with classic Kinsella comedy turns into a riotous journey to find the dragonfly necklace of a recently deceased 105-year-old great-aunt.

At turns hilarious and sorrowful, Kinsella manages to combine historical fact, modern day worries, and the zany strings of family ties together to create her latest masterpiece.

This is the first chick lit I’ve read in a while. The last one I think was The She-Hulk Diaries? And I only read that for a very specific... reason.

The setup is quick. In the first chapter, there’s a lot of telling, not showing, about exactly the state of her life: work, family, social. Boom, boom, boom. Going right to the high concept–that being the main character sees the ghost of her 108-year-old aunt at her funeral.

The problem with this book, which I was worried about (and my worries came true) are two big ghost cliches: 1) they’re assholes 2) they have indeterminate powers. It happens in Drop Dead Fred, Little Monsters, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Ghost Dad, and Field of Dreams. The plot moves forward because the ghost provokes the main character into doing something they don’t want to do. Usually, this is forcing them out of their comfort zone. (Not like robbing a bank, I mean. Although that would definitely be outside the comfort zone for most people.)

For example, the main character is a job headhunter. And the ghost makes her character shout and act stupid during an expensive lunch, losing her last potential client. The ghost is selfish, leaves her protege in the lurch more than once, talks about how great her old life was, and makes no effort to understand who she’s haunting or explore her new existence. Instead, she annoys a person.

This ruins her life, tears down the status quo, and forces the protagonist into change they don’t want to make. This is proper story-telling procedure, so it’s fine. It fills all the requirements. But it’s cliche. I know how the story’s going to progress before it does.

But knowing how the story goes isn’t necessarily bad–look at all those damn Hallmark Christmas movies. Same damn story every damn time. But they must be making money because they keep making them.

Seems like the whole point of chick lit is to watch the main character suffer. Have them be embarrassed or act in foolish ways, get pulled down a couple hundred pegs. Reminds me of the “Dramarama” section of Seventeen magazine where teen girls told their most humiliating stories, like throwing up in front of their crush. Maybe it’s a hurt/comfort niche combined with humor.

Anyway, I’ve gotten off track. Do I recommend this book? Eh, I’d give it a tentative yes. The beginning is cringey. The middle is pretty good. The ending wraps up too neatly. You won’t learn anything about the 1920s (in fact, they tend to treat it as this wonderful magical era where people drank and danced and were free and no one was racist or sexist or greedy or abusive). So you won’t learn any history. But you will watch a woman mortify herself and come out better for it. Like Bridget Jones’s Diary. ( )

It started slow but when the moment Lara meets Ed, the funnies begin. A heart warming tale with so much roller coaster of emotions! ( )

[T]he newest addition to Sophie Kinsella's growing library of comedies about plucky women unafraid to dust themselves off from the last caper before heading off to the next.
 
 
De Londense twintiger Lara Lington (ik-personage) gaat met tegenzin naar de crematie van haar oudtante Sadie, die 105 jaar oud is geworden. Vlak na de dienst wordt Lara opgeschrikt door de overledene, die in de vorm van een geest heeft besloten nog niet klaar te zijn voor het hiernamaals. Lara krijgt de opdracht om voor Sadie een ketting te vinden, die een belangrijke betekenis voor haar heeft. De zoektocht verloopt alles behalve voorspoedig, maar Lara leert haar oudtante wel behoorlijk goed kennen. Tevens maakt ze handig gebruik van de situatie door de excentrieke Sadie onder andere haar ex-vriendje te laten bespioneren. Vrolijke, ongecompliceerde roman van de populaire auteur, die met grote vaart is geschreven. De humor is, dankzij de vele blunders van het hoofdpersonage, volop aanwezig in dit – voor chicklit-begrippen – originele verhaal. Wie bekend is met de stijl van de schrijfster, zal niet verrast zijn, maar deze roman zal zeker in de smaak vallen bij een brede, vrouwelijke doelgroep.
