My Ratings : 4 out of 5 stars
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie-a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance-mysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it.
Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other.
Okay. This book was so nice and incredible! I really, really enjoyed this book, honestly. And I was very sad when it ended.
So, the beginning of the novel was kind of boring and annoying, to be honest, but then after some twists and turns, it was really Superb, no doubt. How it started with just a hunt for a necklace and how it fairly ended was really very good.
Talking about the two main characters, Sadie’s character was kind of annoying at times and especially at the beginning because she was always screaming and imposing everything she wanted on Lara and she wasn’t even listening to her most of the time and she was always screaming about her necklace and acting like she knew the right and wrong. She was very pushy and energetic and always ready for a moment but it kind of seemed annoying at times. I loved Lara’s character because she confronted the situations and stood up for herself. She was determinate and she wanted justice and vengeance. But she had done the right thing for sure.
I enjoyed the novel because :
1. The story was good. It was really amazing, to be honest. A funny ghost story, I like it.
2. There were many plot twists and honestly, that’s the best thing I like about Sophie Kinsella, her novels are full of plot twists and you don’t face boredom while reading them.
So, the experience of reading this book was very good and I’m still not over it. I’d recommend everyone to read it. 🙂
