The main protagonist, Mia, is a nice woman who's had a seriously bad time lately, and has been thoroughly bowed down by her sufferings. Getting a second chance to live the previous year, she blooms and takes control of her destiny.
Mia is a good hero. She's very sympathetic, but because you, as the reader, are inside her head you know she's not some perfect paragon. Paragons are a bore! Mia is far from being a bore. I found myself getting incredibly involved with her thoughts and feelings, and got thoroughly excited when she fixed things that had gone so badly for her the first time around. I also cried a couple of times. It's hard not to get caught up in this story.
The people in Mia's life after the slip, i.e. in the new past, are mainly new, and didn't know her as she was, when life served her a series of dirty tricks, so she really does get a fresh start. When things go wrong in life that is a dream come true. Not everything goes right, but she's so determined to right the wrongs that she forces change, and it's positive.
What's even better is she's gone back a whole year, and the book covers a matter of weeks, so the author has oodles of room to pile up a sequel or three. I really want to see where Mia goes next.
This is a soft thriller. By that I mean it's a thriller, but it's not mad, over-the-top insanity from start to finish. There are a few climaxes, each with its own resolution and satisfaction, but they don't rattle in, one on top of the other, without respite. You get time to live with Mia's reactions and progression, without being continuously anxious for her.
I advise any new reader to set aside time for this book. It is compulsive reading, and I didn't get a lot of sleep during night I started reading. Best to start reading on a Sunday morning, so you can just read it from cover to cover. A wonderful debut from the author. Recommended.
