Did your mother ever tell you to be careful what you wished for because you might get it? Well, perhaps Kate’s mother should have said it. Kate awakens to find that it isn’t July 1st (the date she went to bed) but is now June 1st. To put it mildly, she freaks!
A do-over with memories intact. What an opportunity! When she posts a wish as status on her Facebook page, the wish comes true. She cannot undo whatever caused Max to back out of the wedding. Now if she can only determine the exact moment she lost him. She cannot imagine how she will survive without Max so she must do whatever it takes to get him to go through with marrying her this time around. She tells her best friends Liam and Jules about this magic in her life. To prove to them that she isn’t crazy she makes a wish for each of them in a desire to make life better for them.
It is a cute story, a fast read. Great writing. Not great literature, but fun. I love the premise of the story. I did pretty much figure out about halfway through what was going to be the outcome. But that is okay because I enjoyed the journey. Kate and her friends come across as very human – they make mistakes, they feel vulnerable, they do crazy things. I would have loved to have had them for friends myself.
Sometimes love is right under your nose but you need a "Ruby" to find it. The authors, Liz and Lisa have vivid imaginations and they work so well together. If you haven't read any of their books, I suggest you start with this one. Keep your eyes on Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke. They are excellent writers who keep their books clean and fun.
Liz and Lisa have done it again with this lighthearted, captivating story you won't want to put down!
This was an enjoyable light read. I recommend it.
Anyway, it is a fun and enjoyable read, and the thought- provoking premise of how we tend to create the perfect life through our Facebook posts makes it stand out from the next rom-com book.
