Preet’s Rating    

I never thought I'd gush over a romance set in a funeral home featuring a ghost, but Ashley Poston's romance surprised me in all the best ways.  Her adult debut novel was one of my most highly anticipated summer reads and it delivers! It should be no surprise though, because I've loved her contemporary young adult novels. 

In a plethora of romcoms, The Dead Romantics stands out for being light on the humor but brimming with deep feelings. It brings forth so many emotions, especially highlighting those of loss and grief we've experienced over the last few years. I felt Florence's grief on a very personal level. Watching her acclimate to once again being home, with it both being so different and yet the same was often times heart-wrenching. The chemistry and romance between her and Ben made me swoon. There are a few surprises here and there, smiles and gentle laughs, and lots of tears. The Dead Romantics truly stands out and will linger long after you finish the book!
