Description from the Publishers through Netgalley

Acclaimed author Colleen Oakley delivers a heart-wrenching and unforgettable love story about a woman who must choose between the man she loves and the man fate has chosen for her, in a novel that reminds us that the best life is one led by the heart.

Mia Graydon’s life looks picket-fence perfect; she has the house, her loving husband, and dreams of starting a family. But she has other dreams too—unexplained, recurring ones starring the same man. Still, she doesn’t think much of it, until a relocation to small-town Pennsylvania brings her face to face with the stranger she has been dreaming about for years. And this man harbors a jaw-dropping secret of his own—he’s been dreaming of her too. 

Determined to understand, Mia and this not-so-stranger search for answers. But when diving into their pasts begins to unravel her life in the present, Mia emerges with a single question—what if?

My Review:

The summary of this book intrigued me and this was the first book I’ve read from this author so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Mia was stuck in a bit of a rut after moving to a new town and struggling through several miscarriages. The one thing that has remained semi-constant in her life are weird dreams that always feature the same unknown man. The dreams range from odd to romantic.

I wish I could say that I liked this book but for me, it was just ok. It felt long and it seemed to drag on. The last few chapters picked up the pace but at that point, it was too late. I can’t help but wonder, if I listened to this on audio, would I have had a better time?

I gave this book 2 crowns.

I received this E- ARC from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
