A fabulously warm, funny and romantic novel that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure.

'What would I do without you, Lucy Brown?' he said, and kissed me softly. I held his face in my hands and kissed him back. I felt that life just couldn't get any more perfect. And I was right, it wouldn't.
By the end of the next day, I'd be dead.

Lucy is about to marry the man of her dreams - kind, handsome, funny Dan - when she breaks her neck the night before their wedding. Unable to accept a lifetime's separation from her soulmate, Lucy decides to become a ghost rather than go to heaven and be parted from Dan. But it turns out things aren't quite as easy as that. When Lucy discovers that Limbo is a grotty student-style house in North London she's less than thrilled. Especially after meeting her new flatmates: grumpy, cider-swilling EMO-kid Claire; and Brian, a train-spotter with a Thomas the Tank Engine duvet and a big BO problem. But Lucy has a more major problem on her hands - if she wants to become a ghost and be with Dan she has to complete an almost impossible task.

How the hell does a girl like Lucy find a girlfriend for the dorkiest man in England? IT geek Archie's only passions are multi-player computer games and his Grandma. But Lucy only has twenty-one days to find him love. And when she discovers that her so-called friend Anna is determined to make a move on the heart-broken, vulnerable Dan, the pressure is really on...

MEDIA REVIEWS
You'll find yourself laughing one minute and crying the next * CANDIS *
This quirky and enjoyable ghost story is Cally Taylor's first novel after finishing as runner-up in Woman's Own's 2006 short story competition. **** (4 stars) * WOMAN'S OWN *
Heaven Can Wait is, in all honesty, the best book I have read so far this year. I couldn't put it down, and quite frankly, have never read a book that made me literally laugh and cry all the way through. -- Elle Symonds * TRASHIONISTA *
The perfect blend of funny, smart and --sob -- pass the Kleenex, this might just be the best chicklit debut of the year. * DAILY RECORD *
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found myself ploughing through it incredibly quickly because I just couldn't put it down? It's a great book to read, and one for the cold winter evenings to warm your heart. Brilliant. * CHICKLIT REVIEWS.COM *
The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it had to end. This is a very strong debut and one that I highly, highly recommend. * CHICKLITCLUB *
The story is told with a light touch and buckets of humour. Beware - once you have started it, you will not be able to put it down? This novel is a real treat to savour. * BOOKERSATZ *

“Romantic Comedy”

Heaven Can Wait is Cally Taylor's debut novel and it's a really entertaining read. The storyline is quite unique in that the lead character dies within the first chapter and the story is around her decision... More

“Addictive read!”

I’ve never died (obviously) but I still really related to Lucy, which is why I couldn’t stop welling up and getting a lump in my throat when she described how much she misses Dan and laughing (and snorting like a pig... More

“Fabulous book”

I absolutely loved this book.

I'm quite cynical when people say they couldn't put a book down, but I actually didn't stop until I'd finished it. Thought I'd just start with a few chapters,... More
