Molly Marx is dead and has just arrived in the hereafter. It doesn’t take her long to find out that she can still keep tabs on her husband Barrie, the plastic surgeon; Annabel, her beautiful four-year-old daughter whom Molly misses terribly; Lucy, Molly’s crazy, out-spoken twin sister; her nightmare mother-in-law, Kitty; and lastly, her best friend and confidante, Brie.

As police search for Molly’s killer, Molly meets Bob in the hereafter who explains the “rules” to her which she must abide by or she’ll loose her powers. Molly quickly agrees as she doesn’t want to be able to not keep track of her loved ones on earth.

Throughout keeping track of her loved ones here, Molly relives her life up to the point of her death and what follows is entertaining, engaging, humourous, and filled with complex relationships. One of the morals of this story is “never take life for granted”.

Sally Koslow has written an absolute jewel of a novel filled with beautifully developed characters, with a story to tell that you won’t forget, even as you’ve closed the back cover of the book. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more of Ms. Koslow’s work!
