For some reason I was especially touched by this book. As usual Teri Schnaubell turns in a fantastic performance and the plot was fun.
I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
yes, it was such a nice story bringing the lives of 2 different people together.
This story was a little slow for me to get into but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. I experienced very happy and sad moments during the story and the end was the most amazing end to this story. Making it my headline.

I enjoyed the quirky humor in this story. This tale takes a reader on the journey of life after death and then back to life again as Mae Rose dies and then comes back to life in another woman's body.
I felt sad for her husband as he tried to adjust to life with his two sons after the death of his wife.
This story had drama as well as tender and fun moments.
I liked the authors wit. It is quite hilarious. The story line is somewhat confusing until you realize that the 2 storylines will come together.
Ended as it should have.
Teri Schnaubelt brings so much. She puts so much into each character. If you were reading it you would not have the great performance that she gives.
No, I do not think it should have a follow-up book. Because where can you go from here.

I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
A Second Chance...sort of
I actually watched an interview with author Vivian Probst. I feel like it kind of prepared me with some needed emotional background
I must admit. I'm a Teri Schnaubelt fan. I really liked her depiction of Mary Rose and Marilee. Perfect b*tches! I wanted to throttle them in the beginning of the story. There were so many female and male characters. While Ms. Schnaubelt doesn't necessarily give each character his/her own voice, she does convey the various attitudes. It works. Ms. Schnaubelt is a fun storyteller.
Art, sr...he's just so...real

I have to admit when I started listening to this I was a little skeptical, it was a bit depressing and sad. With that said, I'm glad I pushed through the first few chapters, because this is actually a wonderful book. Following each of the characters as they work though their own personal turmoil, is a bit up lifting. Ms Probst does a great job balancing all the characters and their stories, while adding a touch of humor that keeps it from getting to dark. I do wish she had used different names though as I kept getting Mary Lee and Mae Rose confused especially when they are sharing a body.
Mae Rose and Mary Lee are both head strong, opinionated, and in their own ways unlikable, yet as the plot moves along they redeem themselves. Yet it's Mae Rose's Husband Art who really gets the short end of the stick repeatedly through the book, which I felt bad about. I enjoyed the side plot romances, which were cute and endearing. Over all it's a good book, with colorful characters and an interesting plot.
