Book Synopsis

An aspiring screenwriter has a chance encounter with an actor who could be the man of her dreams. Over the next ten years, she'll write the story . . . but will he end up being the star?

February 4, 2003, promises to be a typical day for Olivia Ross--a greeting card writer whose passion project is a screenplay of her own. But after she and a handsome actor have a magical meet-cute in a coffee shop, they make a spontaneous pact: in ten years, after they've found the success they're just sure they're going to achieve, they'll return to the coffeehouse to partner up and make a film together. The only problem? Olivia neglected to get the stranger's name. But she doesn't forget his face--or the date.

For the next ten years, every February 4 is marked with coincidences and ironies for Olivia. As men come and go and return to her life, she continues to write, but still wonders about the guy from the coffee shop--the nameless actor she's almost certain has turned out to be Hamish MacDougal, now a famous A-lister and Hollywood leading man.

But a lot can happen in ten years, and while waiting for the curtain to rise on her fate, the true story of Olivia's life is being written--and if she's not careful, she'll completely miss the real-life romantic comedy playing out right before her eyes.

Fun, Unique Read

4 out of 5 stars

Meet-cute is the theme of this story...but the romance might surprise you. I was super intrigued with this story and found the entire premise very interesting. I've never read a book where the story basically takes place on the same date over a decade. The romance was sweet and will be relatable for some. The whole "feelings for your best friend and then trying to decide what you really want" thing. Not an easy plot line to pull off, but I felt that Bethany Turner did a good job. The ending was by far my favorite part! I don't want to give anything away, but trust me...the end is super fun! Overall, an enjoyable read. I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.

Fun, Cute, and Delightful!

If there ever was a book I thought should be made into a movie, this is it! Oh. My. Goodness! Did you hear me, Bethany . . . This needs to be a movie! I would pay bucks to see it over and over! This is such a fun and enjoyable book to read! I loved every moment I was in it; so much so, that I didn’t want to put it down! I read it all in one day and then was so upset that I was done, I actually re-read parts of it! There were a few deep relational parts, but oh the fun parts were so worth reading again and again! They were just so quirky and refreshing. Which actually made the whole book flow so smoothly. Bethany Turner has become one of my MOST favorite authors to read if I’m having a bad day because I know I will laugh, cry, sigh, moan, giggle, and swoon! Her characters are so enjoyable to get to know. I truly feel I know them and want them to be my friends. In this story, we are taken through time. Each chapter is a new year on the same date, or around the same date. (It’s sort of like the Groundhog’s Day movie, but not!) I love how the author brings in SO many familiar movies, actors, and songs. It brings the story to life. Bethany Turner has a very fascinating way of writing! The voices of each character are delightful and intriguing. She also threw in some twists I didn’t see coming. This book is full of humor, drama, and awkwardness, as well as a sweet romance. It will make you laugh out loud. I found myself having to try and be quiet while reading it late at night, so I wouldn't wake my husband. There are also many tender moments between all the characters. I loved this story and will recommend it to anyone and everyone who wants a fun book to read. I was given this book by the publisher which did not influence my review in any way, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
