Book Review | The Dead Romantics By Ashley Poston

Monday, August 29, 2022

Summary: Florence Day is the ghostwriter for one of the most prolific romance authors in the industry, and she has a problem-after a terrible breakup, she no longer believes in love. It’s as good as dead.

When her new editor, a too-handsome mountain of a man, won’t give her an extension on her book deadline, Florence prepares to kiss her career goodbye. But then she gets a phone call she never wanted to receive, and she must return home for the first time in a decade to help her family bury her beloved father.

For ten years, she’s run from the town that never understood her, and even though she misses the sound of a warm Southern night and her eccentric, loving family and their funeral parlor, she can’t bring herself to stay. Even with her father gone, it feels like nothing in this town has changed. And she hates it.

Until she finds a ghost standing at the funeral parlor’s front door, just as broad and infuriatingly handsome as ever, and he’s just as confused about why he’s there as she is. Romance is most certainly dead … but so is her new editor, and his unfinished business will have her second-guessing everything she’s ever known about love stories.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My Thoughts: Honestly, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. I kept seeing it on TikTok and that’s the main reason I bought it. I kind of went in blind, not knowing what this was about. When I read the ghost aspect I didn’t think I’d like this at all. I was wrong.

I absolutely adored this book. Even though I knew what was happening with Ben almost immediately, it was still a wonderful read. Florence’s character development was amazing. Even though most of the book took place over just a week, it seemed like so much longer. A lot can happen in a week, though.

Ben was a wonderful character. Even as a ghost. He is thoughtful and kind, even overall just a good guy. I enjoyed his character.

Definitely recommend this book!
