THE MUST-READ ROMANCE NOVEL OF SUMMER 2022.
Imagine you woke up with the perfect life . . . But it wasn’t yours.
Today is Josie’s 36th birthday.
Josie’s a single British woman living in a tiny walk-up in Brooklyn. She misses her family, but her radio show is starting to go places. And sure, she could be a dress size smaller, but no one cares what you look like on the radio. The guy she’s had a crush on for months, is finally going to break up with his girlfriend. She hopes.
She’s zipping through traffic on her way to meet friends for dinner at a SoHo restaurant. There’s a screech of brakes, Josie crashes her bike, and her world goes black.
Then something extraordinary happens.
She wakes up in hospital. The handsome stranger by her side, holding her hand and telling her he loves her, is Rob. Her husband of two years. They live in a chic Manhattan penthouse. She works in real estate. And she’s thirty pounds slimmer than when she got on her bike that morning.
Josie has no idea how she got here. This new life is everything she ever wanted. But there’s one thing missing . . .
And now she has to decide: should she go back to her old single life in Brooklyn or stay with the love of her nearly perfect new life?
What would you do?
This extraordinary and unforgettable love story is perfect for fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Audrey Niffenegger, Diana Gabaldon, Jojo Moyes, David Nicholls, Colleen Hoover, Laura Barnett, Rebecca Searle and Holly Miller.
Gah even as I write this review I am still an emotional wreck. I mean pretty much expected to cry when reading this but I didn’t realise how much I really would.
I FRICKING LOVED this book!!!
I mean what more can I say. It had everything I love with a romance book. It had very strong Sliding Doors feels but with an awesome twist to it, which was absolutely fantastic.
I loved living the two lives of Josie and I can’t figure out who had it better. If at all. Both gained and lost things, but I definitely had my favourite Josie, if it is possible.
What an absolute conundrum to be in! To have an accident and then be thrown into a life you could’ve had! I mean wow! I have always wondered what life would be like if I had made certain decisions and what and who would be different. So I found this completely fascinating!!
It is also at heart, not only a romantic love story but a story of strength, acceptance and finding yourself. I would love to know how the two Josies are doing now after the book has ended. I miss them already.
Last year It’s Not Never broke me with its beautiful love story and this year, it is The Love of The Other Life. It is going to be one of my favourite books for a long time. It is beautiful, emotional and refreshing. I sat and read it all in one sitting, once I started I had no intention of letting Josie go. I just now need to find a tissue to wipe my eyes!
Until the next time xxx
