Imagine you woke up with the perfect life . . . But it wasn’t yours.

Today is Josie’s 36th birthday.

Josie is a single British woman living in a tiny walk-up in Brooklyn. She misses her family, but her radio show is starting to go places. And sure, she could be a dress size smaller, but no one cares what you look like on the radio. The guy she’s had a crush on for months is finally going to break up with his girlfriend. She hopes.

She’s zipping through traffic on her way to meet her friends for dinner at a SoHo restaurant. There’s a screech of brakes, Josie crashes her bike and her world goes black.

Then something extraordinary happens.

She wakes up in hospital. The handsome stranger by her side, holding her hand and telling her he loves her, is Rob. Her husband of two years. They live in a chic Manhattan penthouse. She works in real estate. And she’s thirty pounds slimmer than when she got on her bike that morning.

Josie has no idea how she got here. This new life is everything she ever wanted. But there’s one very important thing missing . . .

And now she has to decide: should she go back to her old single life in Brooklyn or stay with the love of her nearly perfect new life?

What would you do?

This extraordinary and unforgettable love story is perfect for fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Audrey Niffenegger, Diana Gabaldon, Jojo Moyes, David Nicholls, Colleen Hoover, Laura Barnett, Rebecca Searle and Holly Miller.

This is not my usual genre but I do read women’s fiction on occasion and this made a very intriguing change.

Have you ever wondered how your life would have worked out if you had taken a different option all those years ago?  I certainly do.  This book takes that thought and examines it in depth.  A very intriguing pageturner that I absolutely loved.

Josie has an accident on her bike on the same day and time as she did a few years earlier but she wakes up in hospital to find she is married to a man she has never met.  Everyone assumes it is a form of amnesia but Josie soon comes to a different diagnosis: somehow she has ended up on an alternate time zone and somehow switched places with other Josie.  Instead of her simple life she is married to a millionaire and living in a mansion.  We would all love to wake up to that.  Or would we?  Josie can’t get past the thought that somewhere her other self has gone from a happily married rich woman to her old life living in a flat and working for a radio station.

We are treated to an in depth look into how this might look if it were reality and my word does that make for a gripping read.

I love how the author has made Josie into 2 different people but basically the same I am not sure how she did it but it works perfectly.

Brilliantly defined characters that fit the plot and a story line that is guaranteed to grab the reader from the very beginning.  Well it has to be 5 stars how could it not?

A big thank you to Joffe Books for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy.  My review is unbiased and honest.
