ABOUT THE BOOK
Hope disappears alone on what was supposed to be the couple's month long honeymoon. Upon returning she learns of her funeral -- everyone in her life 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's not that easy to rent a place when you've been declared dead.
Taking shelter at the YWCA, Hope soon lands a job at a Christian inspirational greeting card company as an assistant to Jake, a 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.
Is there anything in the cards for these two? Find out in the truly original Greetings from the Flipside by authors Rene Gutteridge (Boo) and Cheryl McKay (screenplay for The Ultimate Gift).

Hope is injured after being left at the altar and slips into a coma. Her visitors are warned that coma patients may be able to hear what's being said.
Hope's mother is one bizarre lady, definitely not motherish. Her visits are not enouraging, in fact they're quite the opposite. Jake is another of her visitors who has had a crush on Hope since elementary school. He pours out his heart during his visits.
What I loved about this is how the focus shifts to her life on the flipside, what an original storyline that makes for such a fun read!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
