Publisher's Summary

When an 83-year-old woman dies, she is not transported straight to heaven. She is taken on an unexpected detour back to her life shortly before she died. Only this time, she is seeing the world from a different point of view. This is the first time she has ever experienced a detour being the best part of a journey.

Checkout Girl was published as part of the short story compilation Moments in aid of the tsunami. It was also part of a short story collection published in Germany.

Aimee Alexander is the pen name of best-selling Irish author Denise Deegan.

    "it is not as good as it sounds"

    it's ok, but it is really short and I do wonder if there is any truth butt dead people cant talk much less write a story.
    I really thought it would be much better!

    "A well told tale..."

    This is a beautiful short and snappy tale that will give your heart a lift. The person who reads it-I think it's the author herself-has a buoyant and melodious voice that helps the story bounce along to it's wonderful ending. Well worth checking it out.

    "Charming Christmas Story - Good for the soul"

    Such a beautiful and heartwarming modern Christmas story, with just the right touch of magic. It's always unique to hear a book read by the author themselves. A wonderful tale, and lovely read by Aimee Alexander

    Story
    "Checkout Girl wins at Christmas"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Checkout Girl to be better than the print version?

    Christmas Eve 1989 the story starts and Aimee Alexander, the author, does a fab job reading her Christmas tale. Enjoyed the music with it and the tone of this charming piece. It's a modern ghost story but the old lady's voice is very believable. "I've never been one for detours' she says …and it gives us that magical sense of good things can happen when we notice the world around us and the small, often unnoticed kindnesses. Thanks Aimee.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the little girl and Aimee's voice for Debbie's child is brilliant.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene where they are doing the lottery numbers - hilarious and beautifully done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    it's very short and ideal for that drive home on Christmas eve - would have a lovely radio reading.


    Any additional comments?

    The music is beautiful. Really adds to it.
