Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble - that it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and he still loves her - but that almost seems besides the point now.
Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells him that she can't go. She's a TV writer, and something's come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her - he is always a little upset with her - but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she's finally done it. If she's ruined everything. That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts.... Is that what she's supposed to do? Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

"Better than everyone said it would be"
I disliked the American voice, just because I think the accent is whiny and irritating when telling a story (sorry!), so that's why I would say the print was better. But on the other hand, the audio gives you the emotions etc.
A Sophie Kinsella novel.
As I said, her ability to portray the emotions.
There's a line that Neal said when he was proposing that particularly moved me.
I didn't like the ending - it was all way too left open for my liking. Can we have a sequel please, perhaps focusing on Seth? But it was a really sweet story , not what I was expecting after reading other bad reviews.
"really nice read"
finished it in two days although i have an exam tomorrow i just couldn't put this book down! it was so intriguing and it just kept me wanting to listen more. The narration is beautifully done.
