Overview

An outrageously entertaining debut novel of life, love, death-and the afterlife.

Rosie Fisk was once Samantha Marcello's best friend-but that was before she ran off with Sam's fiancé, Michael, seven years ago. Since then Sam has found a new love, The Silver Swan, her pub. And just as it seems that time has healed all her wounds, Michael walks back into her life-and now he's a widower.

With Rosie out of the picture, and unable to ignore the feelings she still has for him, Sam takes the opportunity to reconcile with Michael. But Rosie isn't about to let death stop her from keeping them apart. Her ghost has been hanging around her husband, playing on his grief and guilt-and only Sam can see her.

Rosie stole Michael from her once. But this time Sam is going to exorcise her once and for all...

Seven years ago in Toronto, Samantha Marcello loved her fiancé Michael Hughes. However, he ran off and married her best friend Rosie Fisk. Sam turned to her business the Silver Swan pub for solace, which in her mind and heart apparently worked. Now a widower Michael is back in town and wants Sam back in his life. However, Rosie may be dead, but she also has returned; she will do anything to keep Michael and Sam apart. Both haunt Sam as Rosie makes it clear from the grave that she still does not want her ex BFF with her husband even as Michael pleads for a second chance. However, neither of them haunts Sam as much as Michael's compassionate power tool using brother Derek does. Sort of combining the TV show Cheers with the movie Over Her Dead Body, GETTING RID OF ROSIE is an enjoyable lighthearted paranormal romance that brings to life Toronto from a living and dead perspective. Although the story line is thin, the eccentric support cast adds to the zany comedy; however it is a couple of delightful refreshing twists that make for a fun read. Harriet Klausner

This is an awesome story of how too often we let our past dictate our future. Like Sam and Michael we have to figure out how to get rid of the Rosies in our lives!
