Publisher's Summary

The bestselling authors of The Good Widow deliver a modern, suspenseful twist on Groundhog Day that asks the question: How far are you willing to go to save the life of someone you love?

Dom is having a very bad day - one he literally can't escape.

When Dom bumps into Mia, his ex-fiancée whom he hasn't seen in almost a decade, he believes they've been given a second chance and asks her out. When Mia dies tragically on their date, Dom makes a desperate wish: to be given the chance to save her life. And when he wakes the next morning to the shock that she's alive, he thinks his wish may have been granted. But day after day, no matter what he changes about their time together, she still meets a terrible fate.

Dom frantically searches for answers to save his beloved Mia and rekindle their former love. But the further he digs, the more obsessed he becomes, making him realize that slowing down time may be the only way to see things clearly. As he's forced to confront the truth about himself and those he's closest to, Dom vows that he'll watch Mia die a thousand times if it means he can save her once.

Critic Reviews

"How to Save a Life is a roller-coaster ride. With a modern take on the Groundhog Day premise, Fenton and Steinke have created a heartfelt adventure of one man’s journey to save the life of the woman he loves. The suspense will keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page. This is their best novel yet."

An Utterly Agonizing Groundhog's Day

I've held on to this book for awhile and I am disappointed that I did because I thoroughly enjoyed it!! It was like a unique Groundhog's Day, over and over again, each one more excruciating than the last!

I've really only read mystery books by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke but I was not let down that this was not a mystery. I would jump head first into any other book they write.

At first, when the days kept repeating, I thought it was a bit of overkill, but once you get through the whole story, in all of it's agonizing glory, it leaves you questioning who really needed saving? The characters are thorough and ones you find yourself wanting to root for and the story is one of the most in depth stories that I've read in a long time. It leaves the reader questioning how far you would go for the one you love. And I definitely DID NOT see that ending coming!

How to Save a Life is narrated by Timothy Andrés Pabon and I felt like he narrated it absolutely beautifully.

Overall, this is a book that I would recommend a thousand times to anyone who will listen!

Not their best...

I’ve read most of their other books and really loved them. This one took a long while for me to get into it and not just find the main character whiny and annoying. I finally got into it half way through but I just didn’t like everyone as much as other books and I predicted one secret so there wasn’t surprise either.

Comments from a reader

This a fantastic novel. Unique in its message and how it is told. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a good romance novel and learning about fate. I loved it so much I finished it in two days.
