The Dead Romantics (Large Print / Library Binding)
Love, death, and humor are so beautifully combined in this fantastic book, and by the end I was openly sobbing in the break room. Morbid quirkiness mixed with the most delicious angst and a surprisingly happy ending? The Dead Romantics is my absolute jam. Read this if you're a fan of (sort of) star-crossed lovers, funeral home hijinks, and the best ghostly love story. (The ending is the best part)— Emma

“I never thought I’d gush over a romance set in a funeral home featuring a ghost. In a plethora of romcoms, The Dead Romantics stands out for being light in humor but deep in feeling. It truly will linger long after you finish the book.”

I LOVED this book ...Funny, breathtaking, hopeful, and dreamy."
--Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis One of the Summer's Hottest Reads --Entertainment Weekly A disillusioned millennial ghostwriter who, quite literally, has some ghosts of her own, has to find her way back home in this sparkling adult debut from national bestselling author Ashley Poston. 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.
