Heidi’s life may be a complicated balancing act between work, her kids, and a messy relationship with her ex. But all that is about to change when she proposes to her long-time girlfriend at the top of the hill during the annual Lilac Festival. What could be more romantic?
When nothing about her day goes according to plan, and her proposal is rejected, Heidi is devastated. She confesses her one wish to a stranger on a park bench: to have the whole day over again. Little does she know, this will set her on an endless loop of reliving it, each time hoping for a different outcome.
As Heidi replays the events, she confronts her own poor choices and actions. Now she must figure out how to make things right if she hopes to break the cycle and find true love before time runs out.
My rating: 🌟🌟🌟.5
The premise of this story is the main reason that I downloaded this book from NetGalley. It mentions something about reliving a day over and over again. This kind of stories really interests me. I tried not to have high hopes so I won’t be disappointed in case it is not what I expected.
When I started reading this one, I had difficulties in trying to like our MC Heidi. Heidi is not the ‘perfect’ goody two shoes MC that everyone will usually root for. She did a lot of questionable things (for me) and made a lot of nonsensical (for me) decisions. I honestly almost dnf this book.😅
I’m also weirded out by how many times her legs or stomach turns to jelly or was compared to gelatin whenever she sees someone attractive. Not sure if the weirdness comes from the usage of the phrase or the reason why she will even feel that way.
What I liked is the part where Heidi learns little by little the things that she didn’t noticed because she’s so focused on her ‘future plans’ instead of the now. I actually like how her character tried to make amends on her previous mistakes. I also like the fact that she finally learned to listen and not just forced her ideals on her kids.
The fantasy part was not really explained. Her thing with Angel is instalove and I wasn’t a fan of that. The day repeating again and again is quite tiresome at some point but I persevered and managed to finish this one.
It was an okay read.👍
