Publisher's Summary

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.

Straight Up Fluff

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.

Meh, not awful, but not a fave...

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.

Thoughts

I found this book very thought provoking. Didn't like that it made it sound like a kid couldn't be happy without two patents. I did and my kids do but I know that you can be a great kid and adult with a single parent! It had lots of good thoughts too. You don't have to have kids to be happy😁 And that you can work out marital problems if you both want to😉

Shallow people, shallow story

I rarely give up on a book before I've finished it, but I couldn't make it through this one. Shallow female characters who only care about clothes, exercise and "putting a baby in there". (Who actually says they want a "baby in there"?) These are characters out of a bad reality tv show, not real women. (At least not real thinking women.) I'd rather wait until Ann Patchett or Anne Tyler write more books than read this.

Do you like repetition?

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.

A wonderful mix of fantasy & reality.

I truly enjoyed this book. A mix of emotions, dreams and reality. I may read this again in a few months.

A good read....or, listen rather

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 .
