Summary

Lara has always had an over-active imagination. Now she wonders if she is losing her mind. Normal twenty-something girls just don't get visited by ghosts! But inexplicably, the spirit of Lara's great aunt Sadie - in the form of a bold, demanding Charleston-dancing girl - has appeared to make one last request: Lara must track down a missing necklace Sadie simply can't rest without.

Lara's got enough problems of her own. Her startup company is floundering, her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, and she's just been dumped by the love of her life.

But as Lara spends time with Sadie, life becomes more glamorous, she dresses in beautiful vintage frocks, and their treasure hunt turns into something intriguing and romantic. Could Sadie's ghost be the answer to Lara's problems - and can two girls from different times end up learning something special from each other?

Disappointed

This is my favourite Sophie Kinsella book, read it many times. Bought this to listen too on holiday...not the full book! So disappointed plus not cheap given it is cut down.

Sold under false pretences

Very disappointed to find out after purchasing this that it is a heavily abridged version of the book, a fact no where specified in the product description. If you want an audible experience true to the original, this is not it

Tut tut

Audible version leaves out a LOT of the original book. I haven't been able to find a single version of the full novel. Such a let down.

Such a shame this is not he full book

Was enjoying this until I realised this was not the full book! I didn’t notice the other reviews at first which mentioned this. Such a disappointment it’s not made clear in the description it’s not the full book.

Great voice artist.

The story itself is lovely but made all the better by Daniela’s performance. A true joy to listen to.
