Sometimes the dead need our help and sometimes, we need theirs.
Angela Panther has a perfect life: A lovely home, an attentive, successful husband, two reasonably behaved children, a devoted dog and a lot of coffee and cupcakes. But while her life might border on mundane, she's got it under control. Until her mother, Fran, dies - and returns as a ghost. It seems Fran's got some unfinished business and she's determined to get it done.
Now Fran's got some nifty celestial superpowers and isn't opposed to using them to levy a little ghostly retribution on her granddaughter's frenemies and even her own daughter, which doesn't make Angela happy.
While Angela's shocked and grateful to have her mother back, she's not thrilled about the portal to the afterlife Fran opened upon her return. Now every ghost in town is knockin' on Angela's psychic door, looking for help - and it's a royal pain in the butt. Now Angela's got to find a way to balance her family life with her new gift and keep her mother in line. And it's a lot for one woman to handle.

Not even death can put an end to motherly love.
Yes. It is so fun. And besides, who has not wished to keep in touch with their loved ones that went ahead of us to the other side?
I liked the mother-daughter relationship. Even though one of them is dead, it is funny and so real, you can relate at so many levels.
She is amazing at making you see the characters right in front of you. She specially brings Fran to life, "back" to life, that is! Her voice has so many facets it is so easy to go from a Grandma to a teenager to a boy on the same sentence. Kathy Poelker's performance enhances the story.
I wouldn't change it. It is perfect for the story.
This has been my first audio-novel and I think Kathy Poelker has set the bar very high for my future audibooks!
Highly Recommend - Moving and Touching story
Listening to the audio was very enjoyable. Kathy Poelker did an excellent job. I enjoyed it very much. She has a way of speaking that draws you in and keeps your interest!
There were a lot of moments that I could relate to and made the story memorable. The relationship between the writer and her "ghost" Italian Mom, was classic. It reminded me of my own experiences with my family. This book made me, laugh out loud, smile and even cry.
My favorite character was Angela. Being a mother and a daughter, I could relate to her story and experiences.
From Here to Beyond... Unfinished Business
I highly recommend this book to everyone! If you are a mother, a daughter, an Italian family member, believe in life after death or if you enjoy, smiling, laughing or crying, this is a MUST Read! It is a delightful story that takes you on a roller coaster ride. We all can relate to the family dynamics in this story and it is just hilarious and a heart-felt tale. Definitely buy this book, because once you start it, you will not want to put it down.
