And Lara is the only one who can see or hear her!
So begins “Twenties Girl,” the madcap adventures of a modern day gal and her ghostly Charleston-loving flapper of an aunt as they comb London trying to find the memento that will allow Sadie to rest in peace.
Lara finds juggling her dead-end job as a corporate headhunter while dealing with her persistent ghostly visitor a bit of a headache. But when Sadie happens upon Ed Harrison, a delightfully handsome American businessman, and sets him and Lara up on a “chance” encounter, Lara’s love life at least begins to look up.
Meanwhile, as she and Sadie do some private sleuthing, Lara discovers that her ultra-rich Uncle, owner of an elite chain of coffee shops and a self-made entrepreneur guru, might have not told the entire truth about the whereabouts of her aunt’s necklace. And a mystery lover in Sadie’s early life is the key to everyone finding love, happiness and peace at last.
