Today I’m excited to participate in the blog tour of ‘The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter’ by Kate Winter. This book is a romantic comedy and was published on May 21st by Sphere.
About the Book:
When Rosie Potter wakes up one morning with what she assumes is the world's worst hangover, the last thing she expects is to discover that she's actually dead. With a frustrating case of amnesia, suspicious circumstances surrounding her untimely demise, and stuck wearing her ugliest flannel PJs, Rosie must figure out not only what happened last night, but why on earth she's still here.
Slowly the mystery unravels, but there are many other secrets buried in the quiet Irish village of Ballycarragh, and nobody is as innocent as they first appear. Aided by the unlikeliest of allies in her investigation, Rosie discovers that life after death isn't all it's cracked up to be, particularly when you might just be falling in love . . .
The Happy Ever After of Rosie Potter is a hilarious, life-affirming and romantic journey through Rosie Potter's afterlife, in which she shares the ghostly tale of how she lived, she died, and she loved (in that order).
A view weeks ago I received ‘The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter’. I hadn’t heard of this book and the author before, but it really sounded like a very fun read and I was excited to start it.
In ‘The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter’ we meet Rosie. Rosie wakes up one morning discovering she is dead. Rosie doesn’t remember what happened to her and why she is still on Earth. The only thing she can do is try to figure out what happened to her, and how her family and friends are doing. What Rosie didn’t expect was to find out all that her boyfriend isn’t the person she taught he was, and he had been telling a lot of lies. Now all Rosie can do is trying to figure out what happened to her.
I didn’t really knew what to expect when I started reading ‘The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter’. But I can say for sure this is a very funny and unique book. It’s the perfect book to read on a Sunday afternoon. Although this book sounds like a sad story, it really isn’t sad at all. This book made me laugh a lot of times and it did have some surprising elements.
The main character Rosie is one I really enjoyed. She definitely didn’t let death get in her way. What I also enjoyed was the one character Rosie could interact with, Charles Walker. He was a true fun character to read about and he sounded like one really handsome guy.
This book was very enjoyable and I loved how unique and funny it was. Although I did find it a little slow at times, it always got back to being fun and mysterious very soon. I would definitely recommend this book. It’s a perfect summer read if you ask me.

I received this book from the Little, Brown Book Group in exchange for my honest review!
