Kirsty Greenwood’s hilarious and heartfelt rom-com THE LOVE OF MY AFTERLIFE (Berkley) was announced yesterday, July 2, as Good Morning America’s July Book Club Pick!

Bought in heated auctions around the world, THE LOVE OF MY AFTERLIFE follows a recently deceased woman who meets “the one” in the afterlife waiting room, scoring a second chance at life and love if she can find him back on earth and get him to kiss her before 10 days are up.

Greenwood writes a romance that feels at turns aspirational and entirely relatable. This is one of the many reasons Berkley Executive Editor Jen Monroe fell in love with the novel. “Kirsty has really nailed the high-concept, aching romance and the world building that comes with it, but she’s also brought such care to her characters and their hopes and dreams.”

Deftly weaving themes of loneliness, grief, and self-discovery into a rom-com filled with laugh out loud moments, Greenwood explores the unique challenges of making friends as an adult, breaking out of lifelong patterns, and facing deep-seated fears to find the courage to live a life that’s unapologetically loud.

Primed to be the breakout success of summer 2024, THE LOVE OF MY AFTERLIFE is already beloved by bestselling authors Ashley Poston, Carley Fortune and Colleen Hoover. A recent review from Elle raves, “Kirsty Greenwood’s THE LOVE OF MY AFTERLIFE takes a slice out of The Good Place to create a cheeky rom-com full of light and laughter.”
