Jerome Hancock was ready to be nothing in life. When Jerome isn’t watching one day, Heidi falls through the ice and her spirit joins Jerome on the other side.

In the end, what will he choose. About Me Lenore Appelhans I write books.

Heidi has always heard a voice intetvention her head, a voice that sings classic rock songs and gives bad advice. The story’s humor comes from the snippets from the Guardian Angel’s Handbook with its Ten Commandments for the Dead and Ten Commandments for the Living, a handbook that Jerome has misplaced and brockenbrouth done more than flip through.
