Novel by Josie Silver
Trigger warnings: death, loss, grief
Synopsis: Lydia and Freddie have been together for more than a decade. The wedding date is fixed, engagement is done and done, they have a beautiful house, a good circle of friends and family…everything is perfect. But on Lydia’s 28th birthday Freddie dies in a car accident.
Lydia is grieving and her sister Elle, her childhood friend Jonah (who was also Freddie’s best friend) and her mother try helping her get back to cope with her life.
Lydia finds a way to live an alternate life where Freddie is still alive. However, going back and forth and living two lives is exhausting.
Review: I probably dived in to this one with a lot of expectations and was a little disappointed. The start is great but as the story moves it becomes a little slow and it feels like it’s all over the place. Some of the quotes are very deep and meaningful and you will love that.
If you are into love stories and second chances then this is for you. If not, I won’t call it a must read.
