Rating
A fabulously warm, funny and romantic novel that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. 'What would I do without you, Lucy Brown?' he said, and kissed me softly. I held his face in my hands and kissed him back. I felt that life just couldn't get any more perfect. And I was right, it wouldn't. By the end of the next day, I'd be dead. Lucy is about to marry the man of her dreams - kind, handsome, funny Dan - when she breaks her neck the night before their wedding. Unable to accept a lifetime's separation from her soulmate, Lucy decides to become a ghost rather than go to heaven and be parted from Dan. But it turns out things aren't quite as easy as that. When Lucy discovers that Limbo is a grotty student-style house in North London she's less than thrilled. Especially after meeting her new flatmates: grumpy, cider-swilling EMO-kid Claire; and Brian, a train-spotter with a Thomas the Tank Engine duvet and a big BO problem. But Lucy has a more major problem on her hands - if she wants to become a ghost and be with Dan she has to complete an almost impossible task. How the hell does a girl like Lucy find a girlfriend for the dorkiest man in England? IT geek Archie's only passions are multi-player computer games and his Grandma. But Lucy only has twenty-one days to find him love. And when she discovers that her so-called friend Anna is determined to make a move on the heart-broken, vulnerable Dan, the pressure is really on...

Reviews

The story is told with a light touch and buckets of humour. Beware - once you have started it, you will not be able to put it down? This novel is a real treat to savour. * BOOKERSATZ * The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it had to end. This is a very strong debut and one that I highly, highly recommend. * CHICKLITCLUB * I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found myself ploughing through it incredibly quickly because I just couldn't put it down? It's a great book to read, and one for the cold winter evenings to warm your heart. Brilliant. * CHICKLIT REVIEWS.COM * The perfect blend of funny, smart and --sob -- pass the Kleenex, this might just be the best chicklit debut of the year. * DAILY RECORD * Heaven Can Wait is, in all honesty, the best book I have read so far this year. I couldn't put it down, and quite frankly, have never read a book that made me literally laugh and cry all the way through. -- Elle Symonds * TRASHIONISTA * This quirky and enjoyable ghost story is Cally Taylor's first novel after finishing as runner-up in Woman's Own's 2006 short story competition. **** (4 stars) * WOMAN'S OWN * You'll find yourself laughing one minute and crying the next * CANDIS *
