If you could repeat one year of your life, what would you do differently?,p>This heartwarming and hilarious novel from the authors of The Status of All Things and Your Perfect Life features three best friends who get the chance to return to the year they turned 40, the year that altered all of their lives in ways big and small - and get the opportunity to change their future.
But it doesn't take long for all three women to learn that reliving a life and making different decisions leads only to new problems and consequences - and that the mistakes they made may in fact have been the best choices of all.

This book had such potential, but there were certain very cheesy elements, especially the way in which the women revisited their 40th year. Also, while it did make me think about choices and the ramifications of them, there were just times in this book when the characters were unbelievably annoying.
I think this could easily qualify as a fluffy beach read if you're in need of that type reading.
If you're looking for something with deep characters and an intriguing plot, then this is not for you. If you want something light and breezy and kind of annoying then this is right up your alley.
I felt like there were a lot of feelings and thoughts that repeated themselves frequently throughout the book. It got pretty annoying by the end. The plot is painfully lame. The characters are not in any way endearing. If you need to burn a credit, I'm sure there are worse choices, but I wouldn't recommend spending actual money on this book.
The narration was good....each characters own personal stories were interesting and it was an overall good listen. The only thing that would've made this a 5 star rating is if there was just a little more excitement....conflict....something .
I love Liz and Lisa's writers! The two authors collaborate SO WELL!!! A true chic lit read! I related to so many experiences and feelings of the main characters. The message: trust your heart & don't let fear stand in your way. An. Absolutely. Lovely. Read. ❤️
Are you female, middle aged and looking for a book that is so cliché it's almost insulting? Then this is the book for you! From one moment to the next, I couldn't believe that I was actually reading this book, and then couldn't believe that it has actually been rated so highly. I can already cast the made-for-TV movie version of this book, appearing on Lifetime Television for Women. Poor writing, laughable storyline, archetypal, one-note characters. Pass.
