About The Book

Where do you see yourself in five years?
Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Kohan has been in possession of her meticulously crafted answer since she understood the question. On the day that she nails the most important job interview of her career and gets engaged to the perfect man, she’s well on her way to fulfilling her life goals.
That night Dannie falls asleep only to wake up in a different apartment with a different ring on her finger, and in the company of a very different man. The TV is on in the background, and she can just make out the date. It’s the same night – December 15th – but 2025, five years in the future.
It was just a dream, she tells herself when she wakes, but it felt so real… Determined to ignore the odd experience, she files it away in the back of her mind.
That is, until four and a half years later, when Dannie turns down a street and there, standing on the corner, is the man from her dream…

My Thoughts

What would you change if you could see an hour of your future?
This is the story of Dannie Kohan; she has an interview for her dream job, has the perfect boyfriend (soon to be fiancée) and the best girl friend ever. But everything will change when just after the interview she will see herself in the future (just one hour), in an amazing apartment and engaged to another man. How could it be possible? She had everything planned and now this will change her plans completely, but this is a dream or has she seen the future?
This is an emotive story, Dannie seems to have the perfect life, but thanks to a “dream” she will not know what’s her life anymore, this story is about friendship, love and emotions. Would you change your present if you could see your future? I always believed that is not easy to change the future, that what you “see” is what you’ll have, all your actions will let you directly to your future, so… Who is the man Dannie saw on her dream? Will all her plans change for him?
I’ll say that this book is not really what I was expecting, not because the book is good or bad, but for the “theme” on it; I was expecting something funny and happy and this was not the book for it. This doesn’t mean the book is not good, don’t get me wrong, but instead of laughs I had tears… not what I was looking for!
I know that with the plot you can’t know much about the story, but if I tell you more there will be spoilers for sure, so this is a romance story, with a major twist, but emotive and sad, that will stay on your mind for a long time.
