I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at Hannah Beckerman’s amazing debut novel, The Dead Wife’s Handbook. My review will go live on Judging Covers on publication day later this week. Let me just say, without ruining both the review and the book, The Dead Wife’s Handbook is my first and so far only 5 star read for 2014. It’s gorgeous, heartbreaking and will having you laughing and crying with each turn of the page.

‘Today is my death anniversary. A year ago today I was still alive.’
Rachel, Max and their daughter Ellie had the perfect life – until the night Rachel’s heart stopped beating.
Now Max and Ellie are doing their best to adapt to life without Rachel, and just as her family can’t forget her, Rachel can’t quite let go of them either. Caught in a place between worlds, Rachel watches helplessly as she begins to fade from their lives. And when Max is persuaded by family and friends to start dating again, Rachel starts to understand that dying was just the beginning of her problems.
As Rachel grieves for the life she’s lost and the life she’ll never lead, she learns that sometimes the thing that breaks your heart might be the very thing you hope for.
Hannah Beckerman gives an unforgettable exploration of love and loss in her first novel, The Dead Wife’s Handbook.
