What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?

Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

A knock on the head has misplaced ten years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

You won't forget this book about a woman who forget ten years of her life. After hitting her head after a fall, she wakes up believing it is 1998 and she is pregnant, happily married, and 29 years old. What she can't believe (until convinced) is that it is actually 2008, she has three children, and going through a divorce. She has no memory of any of the things that happened within those ten years. How she comes to learn of those events and deal with the consequences of what she and others have done makes for a great story. The novel had me guessing until the end. This was one of the best books I have read this year!

I was pulled in right from the start.... then I got bored and almost turned the book back in without reading it. I kept telling myself "just a few more pages to see" and then became solidly hooked about a third of the way through. You can read the synopsis elsewhere, so I only share this to set expectations. Power through the first little bit, and you'll be glad. There were enough surprises to keep it interesting!

I loved this book, great storyline and well written. Read all her books and this is up there.
I thought the idea of the two main characters changing so much from who they were originally when first married very well put together by Liane M. They were 'still there' and wanted to be who they were but their lifestyles had changed drastically and becoming more affluent focusing on the main reason. I have recommended this book to friends.
Please write another book soon Liane!

Relatable characters and a thought provoking plot line. This is one of my favorite books so far this year.

Without any concrete memories of the past 10 years, Alice tries to figure out what happened to her free-spirited younger self.

At times I felt like this was a "good read" and at other times it seemed the author was including every life experience (except war) into this book and then tinkering with the ending so that EVERYONE would be satisfied.

The Caesar salad wasn’t very nice. A lackluster attempt. Wilted lettuce. Stale croutons. Very disappointing. Like life.
