Where do you see yourself in five years? When Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Cohan is asked this question at the most important interview of her career, she has a meticulously crafted answer at the ready. But when she wakes up the next morning, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. The television news is on in the background, and she can just make out the scrolling date. It’s the same night—December 15—but 2025, five years in the future.
Rebecca Serle has crafted a technically perfect novel. The pacing and plotting do not let go of the reader for one second ... My jaw literally dropped when I got to the end and saw how flawlessly she fit together the beginning of the story with the ending. It’s a thing of rare beauty when an author can balance their story as masterfully as this one does.The story itself, is far deeper and more dramatic than the cover copy leads one to believe. It sounds like a second chance romance book, but what you get is far more than that. Be prepared for deep emotions, a few laughs, and possibly a few tears as well.
Set in New York City, the book aptly depicts many locations with diverse and descriptive facts so the reader becomes a part of the overcrowded metropolis with the many venues offered and the ever-changing seasons ... a profound tale of unconditional love and anguish with a touch of the mystical and mysterious. Deep, abiding friendship and loyalty are portrayed along with heartbreak.
