The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint

Grace's life isn't all that it use to be. After her grandfather dies, she mopes around and refuses to go out and participate in life. The only thing that soothes her is working on old cars. Then fate intervenes, and she's shot while out buying cigarettes.

John's been leading no life at all. He works, he draws, and he sometimes hangs out with his friends. The Halloween Nina convinces him to go out changes his entire life. Because he meets Grace.

John and Grace meet that Halloween night. The problem? Grace isn't alive anymore. And as she struggles to find out why she's in limbo, John discovers a life he's never dreamed of living.

An interesting book told in alternative points of view. Grace's story is the main one here, and becomes the focus more as the story goes on. Highly entertaining read!
