Thanks to the INSPYs, I came across this gem of a novel and so glad I had a chance to read Greetings From the Flipside! It’s different. It’s fun. It’s fresh and the perfect summer (or spring, winter, fall) read!
Hope Landon has been rewriting other people’s greeting cards since she was six years old. There’s always a funnier caption in there somewhere. She’s ready to chase her creative dreams in New York City with her fiancé—until he leaves Hope at the altar.
That may give her something to write about . . .
Hope disappears for the time that would have been the couple’s month-long honeymoon, and upon returning learns of her own funeral. Everyone concluded Hope must have killed herself after being jilted. Needing a fresh start more than ever, she heads for the Big Apple only to discover it isn’t easy to rent a place when you’ve been declared dead.
Taking shelter at the YMCA, Hope lands a job at an inspirational greeting card company assisting Jake, the guy who shut down his organization’s humor department. She has lost her faith in love; he needs to find something or someone that will make him laugh again.
Fun and faithful, Greetings from the Flipside will keep turning over in your mind.
It reminded me a little bit of the movie Just Like Heaven. There’s a unique storyline (the Greeting card industry) and lots of humor. I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit. It’s different from what I normally read and was a breath of fresh air in the contemporary genre. There’s a cute romance and characters to you’ll come to love. Plus it’s so creative.
And you can’t go wrong with that. So go ahead and treat yourself to this fun read!
