Blurb: On a summer night in London, art teacher Eve Chapman finds herself in a hospital emergency room. She watches surgeons desperately operate on a young woman with a terrible head injury. But when the bandages are removed, Eve is horrified to find her own body on the operating table.

Trapped in a coma, Eve struggles to cope with the fact that no matter how hard she tries, her family and friends cannot see or hear her. But then she meets Luca Diaz, a handsome and comatose lawyer who can see her. He takes Eve under his wing and teaches her how to use her new abilities to help the living.

As the weeks pass, Eve struggles to find a way back to her body and to Nathan, the man she loves. But the more time she spends with Luca, the more she wonders if her old life is worth going back to at all.

My thoughts:

There were really vague details about the premise of the world in this book and usually, that would irritate me but I felt like this sort of mysterious withheld format really fit well with the story. This was unlike any story I’ve ever read except it also felt familiar.

The characters were quite intriguing and I do wish that they could’ve been more fleshed out in the story because I felt like they barely got to form any connections with each other so there were some scenes that just didn’t make sense to me. The POV switching in different chapters was kind of jarring as well.

I found the first part of the book to be quite slow moving which I didn’t really enjoy that much at first but it all made sense in the end where there was a lot more activity happening and I understand why the author chose to plot the story this way. It was an extremely well put together storyline although there weren’t any big plot twists, the story was captivating enough to keep me glued to my seat the whole time.

I wished we got a more solid conclusion but I also feel like the mystery throughout the book makes you draw your own conclusion and let’s you interpret the story because of its vague details. I will say that the ending was kind of sweet though and I really enjoyed it.

Grief and comfort played hand in hand in this story and wow those two feelings are really tough to process together so it was interesting to see how the author tackled these emotions and watch it play out with the characters and the storyline. There were some parts of the book that hit home and made me tear up.

Overall, I have to say that this book really surprised me in a good way. It’s unlike a book I’d usually pick up but it was a touching and heartfelt story about love, grief, and finding comfort.

My Rating: 4/5 stars ✨
