    This was a fun read. As a “Groundhog Day” movie fan I was really excited to read this. I like the premise of having one day to do over until your life changes for the better.

I like the premise of having one day to do over until your life changes for the better. And to get a WLW version of it, I’m all for it. I’m happy to say that it was the entertaining storyline that I was hoping for. Dena Blake is one of my go to authors when I want something really angsty. I was actually surprised to see that this had way less angst than her books normally have. But the book still had plenty of conflict pushing the story forward so that it went at a nice fast pace. I read this whole book last night and the story flew by for the most part. Since this is a story about reliving one day over and over, it does get a little repetitious. I think Dena did a good job of mixing things up with different outcomes but you do know that the main character has to do everything right before she can move on so some parts have to be done over and over. If you pay attention to the book you will have a guess as to why Wynn can’t move forward. I think it was the second to last repeated day that I started yelling at Wynn to figure it out too so the story could move on. I think I personally would have liked one less repeated day, so I didn’t get that frustration, but this still was a fun premise. Since the romance mostly takes place in one day it feels like insta-love, but because Wynn has that day over and over it’s not insta-love for her. Even the sex feels like it came a little quick for Carly, because it is on her first date, but for Wynn it has been half the story. It’s interesting how that worked out and almost messed with me a bit. The chemistry is really good between the mains which I always appreciate. If you are a “Groundhog Day” fan and like the “do-over” premise, than I would definitely recommend this one. I had to spend my birthday, last night, at home social distancing but this book entertained me and made my night better. I can’t really ask for much more than that during these times. An ARC was given to me for a honest review.

    I enjoyed the first half of this book but it really fell apart for me at the end. This is about a woman reliving the same day of her life one year in the past that impacted many facets of her life, most importantly losing the opportunity with a woman who ended up going on to marry the main characters sister and everyone ending up miserable. When Wynn is able to go back and relive that day, the first roadblock for me was that it took her a very long time to realize that she’s reliving the same da I enjoyed the first half of this book but it really fell apart for me at the end.

When Wynn is able to go back and relive that day, the first roadblock for me was that it took her a very long time to realize that she’s reliving the same day even though there’s things about the day being in the past that are obvious (her dog is now a puppy; her bathroom renovation is still happening) and it took her way longer than necessary to catch on. The first handful of days that are relived were fine but then it started to get very repetitive. By the last half, Wynn starts telling other people what’s happening and I found that to be entirely too unrealistic, especially their reactions. I also thought earlier days relived would have been much better jumping off points for Wynn to reset her life and didn’t find the day that finally “clicked” to be very satisfying, especially with how the romance ended up playing out. I also would have enjoyed other people maybe realizing they were too in a loop, as it felt weird to have only Wynn experiencing these close emotions and experiences with others and them not remembering. Lastly, I don’t tend to love when characters in stories like these relive a day and then jump to the future again with no recollection of what happened in the time between. It would have been nice to see her settle back into the memories from the time between. So overall, although the first half was a cute story, the last half felt convoluted and brought the story down for me.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a "groundhog" type story, where the same day repeats itself, but it wasn't. Things changed constantly based on what happened, like the weather and feelings toward one another. Wynn was such a likable character and so was Carly. I will say I would have liked more Jordan drama but that is just me and I almost wish the future day wasn't changed because I think Carly could grow from it but the twist...now that was good and I loved.

    Wynn Jamison shouldn't have stepped aside and let her sister Jordan pursue Carly Evans after they shared a phenomenal kiss a year ago. Now Carly is unhappily married to Jordan, and Wynn cannot seem to keep Carly out of her mind.

If only we could all relive the day we made the worst Wynn Jamison shouldn't have stepped aside and let her sister Jordan pursue Carly Evans after they shared a phenomenal kiss a year ago. Now Carly is unhappily married to Jordan, and Wynn cannot seem to keep Carly out of her mind. When Wynn finds herself waking up on that game-changing day a year prior, she is desperate to make her and Carly work. But then the day keeps repeating itself. What does she have to do to get out of the wretched cycle? If only we could all relive the day we made the worst decisions of our lives. This is a weird book. Good weird. Kiss Me Every Day is a story about two people who were meant to be together but weren't because of circumstances. From the beginning, we see that Wynn and her sister-in-law Carly both hold a special place in the other's heart and everybody around them thinks they should be together. But Carly is married to Jordan, and as a marriage counselor, she refuses to consider a divorce. When Wynn starts reliving the day from last year, I no longer needed convincing to root for them. They are wonderful for each other, and both have decent character growths as the story progressed. The book covers many aspects of Wynn's life: romantic, work, neighborly, and family relationships. Her repeating day feels like an exceptionally hard video game stage that one cannot pass and has to start over again and again. While frustrating because we share Wynn's desperation, it was also as adrenaline-filled as watching someone play an intriguing game. Though there were a few times the timeline messed with my head and seemed off, given the confusing nature of the theme, that actually added to the suspense. It was an enjoyable read. Kiss Me Every Day is a reminder that life is so much more than work. It is definitely a thrilling story that keeps you on edge because you cannot wait for Wynn and Carly to end up together for good. And shoutout to Jeanine Henning for putting a mysterious yet slightly fading illustration of Carly on the cover. I received an e-ARC from Bold Strokes Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

That didn't happen at all to me while reading Kiss Me Every Day and till the end, I still wonder what do they see in one another. Yes, I'm disappointed as this is the 3rd book I read by Ms.Blake, and history is repeating itself. Another book by her that I think the storyline had the ability to be fantastic if presented in a different way.

    4.25 Stars I wasn't sure how Kiss Me Every Day was going to play out, but I still wanted to read it. I am so glad I did. I really enjoyed reading it. This idea of ground hog day hasn't played out much in the romances I have read. I only read one book similar (Blake wrote that one), but still this concept was different. Dena Blake made this work!

Sad thing is Carly isn't happy and neither is Jordan. It really is a mess. Wynn on the other hand avoid Wynn and has focused on her career. Everything changes when Jordan skips her anniversary meal with Carly and asked Wynn to stand in for her. The next morning Wynn starts her ground hog day experience. As I sit and reflect, I liked ground hog day - the movie, so now I am not surprised I enjoyed this romance. Wynn has to figure out how to make things right in her work life and personal life. Trust me she tries and tries and at some point if you are paying attention you can figure out what she is missing. I really enjoyed her trying to "fix" things. I liked how Blake built upon the chemistry between Wynn and Carly each day. Even though Carly isn't living this ground hog day experience, her feelings for Wynn build each day and she can't seem to understand. That made for a really hot and steamy romance. I liked both mains and thought they "fit" together. This arc was provided by netgalley and the publisher for an honest review.

I had a couple problems with this book. The day is replayed way too many times. I really got sick of reading about the same day over and over again. I really wish it just replayed once or twice and then you saw Wynn and Carly's relationship. I wanted more of their relationship as a whole and not just the first day over and over again. I really did not enjoy reading it and only really felt the character development on one side, Wynn since she kept her memory every time she relived the day. I wish there was just more about them in general and not just this day. It was an interesting concept, but I wish it was better written. The synopsis made it seem like it was more about her dating her sister's wife, but there was none of that in the book, and it was more about winning her back. I would not recommend this book.

I don't think the "groundhog day" elements complimented this book very well honestly, and personally I would've preferred this story to have been told as a linear love story, but I understand that's not for everyone and this added a different spin to your usual contemporary. Overall, if I hadn't committed to an arc of this book, I more than likely would've DNF'd it quite early on as I just didn't enjoy it enough to justify spending my time reading it.

Honestly, her courage and determination were really rather attractive. Carly was my favourite character, and she deserved every ounce of happiness she missed out on with Wynn by marrying the wrong sister. The epilogue is one of my favourites to date and wrapped everything in a big red bow. I adored the ending to this book so much. I can’t recommend this book more. It’s fabulous and will transport you into a whole new world of fate and possibilities. Definitely, a must-read! Go grab your copy below.

When Wynn ends up on the anniversary date that her sister should be on, a freak thunderstorm makes Wynn relive the day she made the worst decision of her life. She keeps reliving the day until she gets it all right. It takes her a long time to figure out what’s going on and when she is reliving the day again she starts telling people and they just believe her, but they haven’t been experiencing the same. It’s all a bit surreal and weird. Pretty early on on the book I figured out what it was that she should be doing, instead of all the selfish and corporate things. The book gets a bit too repetitive for me and I feel like it takes Wynn too long to figure out what’s going on. She assumes it’s a very elaborate practical joke, which is just a joke. It’s ridiculous to relive a day until you get it perfect, but a practical joke in this way would be even more ridiculous. I find all the characters to lack development, but I guess rereading the same day over and over will do that with a story. The ending is a bit flat for my liking as well. I hoped I’d like this book better than the movie Groundhog Day, but I don’t know, I think I don’t really care for either of them. *ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

    Well one thing I can say is that Ms Blake actually did a book that used the ‘Ground Hog Day’ syndrome in a way that for once I didn’t mind. When I first came to that I thought ‘oh no’ but as I continued it soon came apparent that with the right characters and plot it can be done. Carly Evans works as a marriage therapist, so the idea of admitting her own marriage was on the rocks wasn’t something she wanted to face.

Carly Evans works as a marriage therapist, so the idea of admitting her own marriage was on the rocks wasn’t something she wanted to face. A year before she’d met Wynn Jamison and the attraction was immediate but just as they were starting to get to know each other along comes Wynn’s older sister, Jordan, who quickly honed in on Carly. Within a few minutes she got the impression that Carly was happy with Jordan’s attention. Especially after Jordan pulls her aside and lets her know she wants Carly for herself. That was the problem with Wynn and Jordan’s relationship. Over the years every time Wynn had an idea, or acted like she wanted something Jordan had a habit of stepping all over her, Wynn always stepped back letting Jordan take the lead. Now a year has passed and Wynn wishes that for once she’d stood up to Jordan because it’s painfully apparent Carly isn’t happy with her marriage to Jordan. If only she’d handled the situation differently, perhaps it would be her celebrating an anniversary with Carly. Didn’t expect to like this book and glad to find out I was wrong.Very enjoyable read.

    If this book is not the best, I bet is best of 2 from Dena!! Sometimes I wish I could have do-over like Wynn. Her trying to get it right was really moving. Truth is I don't remember of much what happened last week, not talking a year. I bet the reliving and trying to make it right got tiring but she never gave up. It is sweet, moving story. I think I read this one in one sitting! Bravo!

    I usually like the Groundhog Day trope, I love watching how people learn and change over the course of a singular day, over and over and over again.

I only made it approximately halfway through before I decided to skim the last half and then read the epilogue. Kiss Me Every Day follows Wynn, a successful business woman who regrets not winning over Carly, the woman who eventually married her sister. When she ends up getting dinner with Carly, they begin to rekindle their feelings for each other, only to have Wynn wake up on the day she let Carly go to her sister. It's a dual POV, alternating between Wynn and Carly every chapter. While the idea of having the two sisters fighting over the same woman made me hesitate, it didn't actually bother me the way I guessed it might. In fact, I thought Blake did a good job of making sure that the reader knew why everything had fallen apart the way it had. Unfortunately, that's really the only pro I have for this book. I had no connection to any of the characters in the entire book, despite the book primarily focusing on three characters: Carly, Wynn and her sister, Jordan. Not having a connection made it really difficult to get into the book, and I honestly found it difficult to differentiate between Carly and Wynn, the only difference was that Wynn didn't seem to have any morals until the end of the book. I didn't click with the writing either, so overall I just didn't particularly enjoy this. It's not the writing was bad, there just wasn't enough pizzazz for me I guess? It felt more tell than show, but it's definitely a style that other people could enjoy.

    More like a 2.5, I like Wynn and Carly's story. In my opinion, the time loop situation was resolved pretty badly, it was confusing and it didn't make sense at all. I usually love time loops in movies which is why I started this book, but I guess it's difficult to make it work in a book. Another thing I didn't really like in the book was how much it was focused on the job part... I would have liked more page time about Jack and Maria or Carly's job.

    This book was SUCH a fun read!! At the beginning, I was immediately rooting for Carly and Wynn, and then when the groundhog loop started I was starting to get so frustrated because I just wanted them to have their happily ever after!! This was such a fun, interesting book to read and i thoroughly enjoyed it; the characters were super easy to like, the romance was super cute and I loved seeing each little thing that Wynn changed each day.

It’s a Groundhog Day theme but so very, very much better!!! I like Ms Blake’s writing style and this book proved to hold true to that. It was easy to read and after the initial first chapter it really held my attention and kept me up WAY too late because I didn’t want to stop till I finished. I liked the drama and the characters were lovely too. I liked watching Wynn turn from a backstabbing brat (Amazon hates swearing lol) who couldn’t stand up for herself to someone who learned to do the right thing as she grew confidence. This is a sweet and special book and I am pleased to recommend it.

However, i think the days went on one or two too long, as there's only so much variety you can write in the same day. I also wish there was more of an insight into Wynn and Jordan's relationship, as we only get a few glimpses into it on a few of the repititions. That being said, I loved the romance between Carly and Wynn and while it was technically insta love it didn't feel like it because Wynn had lived this day so many times, and we were right there with her.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for the ARC of this book. 3.5 stars. Kiss Me Every Day has a fun premise, and it delivers plenty of sweet moments.

That all being said, Blake wraps up the story in a lovely way, and it's a great summertime, feel-good read. For me, the biggest drawback was the editing. There were some continuity issues, and there were about three or four times where Blake wrote "Carly" where she obviously meant "Wynn." Overall, this book was a fun, unique addition to my romance shelf!

    I really enjoyed the story. The Groundhog Day feel over and over for Wynn until she figures out how to do everything right. The love connection between Wynn and Carly was undeniable and felt from the very beginning, you can’t help but hope they can figure it out. Wynns character development is lovely to watch her decide to change and try to make her life better, as well as the people around her. The one part I didn’t like was how Carly was with Wynns sister.

I like the premise of this book because I believe if we had that chance to relive one day in our life what day would you choose and will you change anything about that day.

    A special thanks to Bold Strokes Books, Inc. and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for a review! The “Groundhog Day” trope is a fun, yet somehow not overdone story that calls for a great, if not aggravating, story for viewers.

The “Groundhog Day” trope is a fun, yet somehow not overdone story that calls for a great, if not aggravating, story for viewers. Dena Blake’s newest story, “Kiss Me Every Day” is a wonderful addition to these stories that is well thought out and enjoyable, but puts a little too emphasis on the aggravating parts. “Kiss Me Every Day” follows two main characters, Wynn and Carly. Wynn’s sister, Jordan, marries Carly, who Wynn is secretly in love with. Carly is unhappy in her marriage with Jordan but refuses to divorce her because of the fear it will have on the reflection it will have on her job as a marriage counselor. So one day, Wynn wakes up a year prior to the night she fell asleep, which just so happens to be one of the most important days of her life. She finally has a chance to save jobs at her work, save her neighbor’s marriage, get her dream girl and perhaps even save a life. Overall, I really enjoyed “Kiss Me Every Day” and read it in about three days. The book takes a little bit of set up before it dives into the main story, but it’s not boring by any means. Going in, I didn’t even know it was a “Groundhog Day” situation, but was pleasantly surprised with it. A great aspect of the book is Blake’s formatting in the story and the quick changes between Carly and Wynn’s point of views. The story is very hectic, but not confusing, and this confusion that both of the characters feel is portrayed well and adds to the reader’s experience. Another great aspect of this book is the mystery of how Wynn’s day is supposed to play out. Of course she’s sent back in time for a reason and with each day she changes something different, but what exactly she’s supposed to change is a mystery up until the last couple of chapters in the book. This sense of mystery adds to the aggravation Wynn feels as she wakes up to the same day repeatedly and to the reader themselves. This poses my one complaint about the book though, and it’s that the repetition, specifically the last couple of days before Wynn manages to set things straight, goes on a little too long and doesn’t change. Once Wynn decides she’s going to go after Carly and not let her slip away like last time, the days all blend together with no defining factors. Around the 70% mark I found myself drifting off, waiting for the problems to get resolved, but it took a little while longer and unfortunately the payoff wasn’t too grand. I would have liked a longer ending to enjoy with the main characters, but I got the general gist of what their lives ended up being. That being said, the story is still really good and it ended up being an enjoyable read. I read 62% of the book in one day and found it extremely easy to get lost in and sucked into. The Verdict Although the general outline of the story is not a new one, “Kiss Me Every Day” is a refreshing modern and sapphic twist on an amazing trope that readers will have an easy time reading and getting lost in. From an interesting set of characters to the main parts of Wynn’s life that she’s attempting to set right, there’s a lot this book has to offer and keep readers invested in. The ending comes a little too quick after a stretch of repetition that becomes a little too much at times, but isn’t too bad to take away from the reading experience as a whole. My Final Rating: ⅘ stars

She gave the orders to lay off thousands of employees in the morning, and her dinner with her sister's wife Carly has made her realize that she still has feelings for her sister-in-law. But Carly and Jordan's marriage is falling apart, and the night ends with a searing kiss between Wynn and Carly. The next morning, Wynn wakes up to discover that she's gone back in time one year, to the day she shared an amazing first kiss with Carly, before she lost her to her Jordan. As Wynn repeatedly wakes up on the same day, she realizes that she's been given a chance to correct the record. Will Wynn ever escape the time loop, and maybe get the girl as well? cw: infidelity (kissing), death (of a side character) This was a cute story, despite the unoriginal premise. It was very much a lesfic version of Groundhog Day, except Wynn starts off much more likable. The Characters: Wynn and Carly were cute and nice, but they lacked depth. I felt like a lot of adjectives got thrown around, but I had a very muddled picture of both characters. The side characters were pretty one-dimensional as well, though a few were very likable. The sister, Jordan, seemed like a straight up sociopath. The Romance: There were definitely some good bits of romance in here, but I think things started to get a bit crazy by the end. There were big gestures that didn't quite make sense. It felt a bit like I was being sold the idea of, "they are meant to be!" rather than being convinced that the MCs should be together through the plot. For example, they would have some average conversation and spend some time doing a fun activity, and then the narration would say something along the lines of how one MC knew the other MC was The One for her because it all felt so easy. I wanted to feel the chemistry more, instead of being told that it existed. The Plot: I liked how there were other subplots that Wynn had to try and fix in addition to the romantic one. This kept things interesting as Wynn tried different methods to fix everything by the end of the day. However, I think some of the plot lines did not make sense, and there were some actions and choices that seemed out of character. Also, some of the resolutions were a bit basic. The Writing: There were a lot of typos in this one, although I did read an ARC, so those will hopefully get fixed in the final product. I wasn't a big fan of the writing style. It was very straight forward, a lot of "telling" as opposed to "showing," and there wasn't much flow. The story was told in alternating third person limited POV of Wynn and Carly. All in all, this was an entertaining book. While it wasn't the most well-written or well-thought out story, Dena Blake's enthusiasm for her characters' HEA makes it a better read. If you're a fan of this do-over trope, this may be the book for you. **I received an ARC via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

    A special thanks to Bold Strokes Books, Inc. and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for a review! This was a "groundhog day" type of book where the same story repeats itself but it has a sapphic twist! There are many things I liked in this book, the first one being Wynn's character development. It wasn’t that Wynn was particularly unlikable in the beginning, it’s just that she became kinder by the day. It was wonderful seeing her opening up to others, listening to them and teaming up with them. Th A special thanks to Bold Strokes Books, Inc. and Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for a review! This was a "groundhog day" type of book where the same story repeats itself but it has a sapphic twist! There are many things I liked in this book, the first one being Wynn's character development. It wasn’t that Wynn was particularly unlikable in the beginning, it’s just that she became kinder by the day. It was wonderful seeing her opening up to others, listening to them and teaming up with them. That made her friendly and relatable. The second thing I loved was her chemistry with Carly. That’s why the beginning was so frustrating to read because it felt like they were stuck in their lives so it was wonderful seeing them falling in love each day. It was amazing to see how well and purely their relationship evolved. The last chapter and epilogue were very cute and satisfying. I really enjoyed them. I also liked how several stories were intertwined and how a single day can impact your future, it was a perfect exemplification of the butterfly effect; I loved that! I also liked how each day wasn’t identical to the following one - it was even raining at some point. The highlight of the story was definitely Suzanna's kindness as well as the dogs! They were so cute! However I gave this book three stars because several things bothered me: The slow beginning/b> . I know we needed many elements to set the story and see which things where meant to be "fixed" but I think it was a little too slow and Wynn and Carly’s chemistry wasn’t really there even though it was supposed to be. Also, I liked none of the characters at the beginning and it almost kept me from continuing the story. (I am very glad I did though). Jordan. Jordan was the WORST. She treated Carly terribly and almost "pimped" her to her sister. How messed up is that? She was mean, condescending and inconsiderate. She was almost caricatural because she was two-dimensional and that bothered me. When I read the blurb I kind of expected a love triangle. I would have liked her to have more depth so Carly and Wynn’s situation would have been more challenging. I’m sorry but lust is not strong enough to get people to marry one another. I don’t believe the fact that they got married so quickly. I don’t feel like there was any spark between Jordan and Carly. That part disappointed me a little. The last thing that disappointed me was the ending. The last pages were too quick! The last chapter needed to be longer. I know the author needed a transition (with the hospital) and it was kind of smooth but I was confused. I think this could have played out a bit better. And once again it was too quick. The ending was still satisfying and well-written so that’s okay but a few more pages wouldn’t have hurt.

She’s okay with that until she spends her birthday dinner with the woman who could’ve changed it all. There’s only one problem. She’s married to Wynn’s sister. Carly Evans is tired of her wife ignoring her needs to put her career first. Family has always been important to her, and Jordan just doesn’t seem to care. A freak thunderstorm rages during the night, and Wynn finds herself catapulted back in time to the day she made the worst decision of her life―stepping aside to let her sister romance Carly. Reliving the day over and over again, Wynn must decide what is most important: success, loyalty, or love. Given a second chance at happiness, will she take the opportunity and change her destiny? M Y T H O U G H T S I have been craving a good female-female romance for the longest time, finally I read one that checked all the boxes. This book has a Groundhog Day plot, where Wynn finds herself reliving the same day over and over again. She must correct all of her mistakes in order to escape the time loop. Things I loved: ▪ Wynn's journey of self-discovery is wonderful to witness. She develops compassion, love and finds happiness. Her character development is phenomenal. ▪ I loved the romance. Romance isn't my favourite genre, I tend to find it cringy and often lose interest. The romance in Kiss Me Every Day was the complete opposite. It was beautiful and exhilarating and consuming. It presented love in a truly magical way making the book a wonder to read. ▪ The PUPPIES. Honestly, whenever a puppy is mentioned in a book, my love for the novel increases tenfold. Puppies are my weakness, and whenever Shadow or Buttercup was mentioned I couldn't help but smile. If you're looking for a stunning romance book with a female/female romance, then this is definitely the one for you. I highly recommend.

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own. Wynn is crazy about Carly, who just so happens to be her sister-in-law. It's not her fault though, she was interested in Carly before she married Wynn's sister Jordan. Now Carly and Jordan are unhappy together and Wynn can't help but wonder what would she do differently if she could relive that day over... and over and over again.

Now Carly and Jordan are unhappy together and Wynn can't help but wonder what would she do differently if she could relive that day over... and over and over again. I adored Wynn as a main character. Yes, she was far from perfect but I really enjoyed following her throughout the story. She is fun and sweet. We get to watch her grow so much as a person through the course of this book. I couldn't help but root and cheer for her every step of the way. I thought the pace of this story was perfect! It wasn't rushed but it wasn't dragged out either. It carried itself out so that I was completely entertained the entire time, yet on the edge of my seat during the end. I think Dena Blake did an amazing job with this one. I really enjoyed it a lot. There were definitely some cheesy moments and some moments that made me cringe, but overall I absolutely adored this book. If you're looking for a cute f/f romance with just a touch of drama, I strongly recommend checking this one out.

    I really liked this concept, and that the Groundhog Day-esque time loop meant there was technically no cheating, which I appreciated. Watching Wynn figure out different things in her life that needed to change was interesting, and I liked that it wasn't just one thing that had to be changed (which makes sense, as parts of your life affect other parts of your life). Also really enjoyed the dogs! Did not enjoy how judgmental Carly was about divorce.

As a marriage counselor, obviously you want your couples to stay together, but is it really that much of a disaster for your career if a couple ultimately decides to get a divorce because it's the best thing for both of them? That wasn't addressed in a way I would have liked. The ending also confused me. (view spoiler)[Wynn wakes up in the emergency room waiting room because she fell asleep waiting to see what was wrong with Mrs. P. She is not in the clothes she was wearing at the fundraiser, and Carly says something about them leaving a party. However, when Wynn asks her to recount the night of the fundraiser, it includes Wynn leaving because of Mrs. P---if that's the case is Mrs. P in the hospital twice? If Mrs. P goes to the hospital during a birthday bbq, how could Carly have a memory of her going into the hospital the night of the fundraiser? (hide spoiler)] A decent read and I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading it.

Overall, the story was enjoyable, though I did enjoy the first half more than the second. The beginning of the book read very quickly, but slowed down for the last half. But maybe that is due to the story line, if we are talking a 'ground hog's day' type of idea. I liked the the book was unpredictable - I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen next, where the author would take us. The idea of going over events and situations and getting to try out some 'what if' situations, to see what would happen, which was the better choice and path - maybe not healthy all the time, but I think we've all wondered a few 'what if's' with relationships, and this was a fun way to test some of that out. This was a really enjoyable book and I would recommend it to anyone. Give it a try - I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
