Publisher's Summary

In this riotous young adult romp for fans of Recommended for You and A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, a teen girl has the worst Valentine’s Day ever—only to relive it over and over again.

After living through a dumpster fire of a Valentine’s Day, Emilie Hornby escapes to her grandmother’s house for some comfort and a consolation pint of Ben & Jerry’s. She passes out on the couch, but when she wakes up, she’s back home in her own bed—and it’s Valentine’s Day all over again. And the next day? Another nightmare V-Day.

Emilie is stuck in some sort of time loop nightmare that she can’t wake up from as she re-watches her boyfriend, Josh, cheat on her day after day. In addition to Josh’s recurring infidelity, Emilie can’t get away from the enigmatic Nick, who she keeps running into—sometimes literally—in unfortunate ways.

How many days can one girl passively watch her life go up in flames? And when something good starts to come out of these terrible days, what happens when the universe stops doling out do-overs?

Cheesy in the Best way!

I enjoyed every second of this. Yes, it's predictable, if you are familiar with either romcoms or Groundhog Day, but it didn't detract from my listening experience.

Do-Overing done right

This is a charming story. Life lessons learned in an unusual way. The Characters are slowly developed to show depth. My only issues had to be the miss steps in some of the scenes. Examples: Em's bedroom is in the basement but in one of the scenes she goes "upstairs to her room." In a couple other scenes towards the end, there are unfortunately timeline issues. It's at a point after Em is no longer in the time-loop. There are more than a couple days worth of scenes and suddenly characters are referring to the last Valentine's day as yesterday.

No one does Rom-Com like Lynn Painter

I loved it! The story, performance, writing, all of it. I was worried it would get repetitive and bug me bc of the day repeating itself but i didn’t. I loved it!

Great Valentine’s Day read!

I read this as my valentines read for the year and I was so cute! I loved the characters in this book more than Btter than the movies and I love that one too! I do like the Groundhog Day vibes, it did fall a little short for me when she sprang back into reality, can’t spoil but I’m not sure what exactly I would’ve thought would be different. All around a great book and I look forward to my future Lynn Painter reads

Predictable or is it?

So, yes this book is predictable! After the first two or three chapters, you get the plot of the book. After looking at the cover, you'll figure out what happens at the end of the book. All this combined, makes this predictable. But here's the beauty of Lynn Painter's writing. We all know what is going to happen, but the way the story unfolds, it catches you by surprise. It is a very creative and beautiful story. It's not the usual Freaky Friday storyline, but I could totally see this as a movie waiting to happen, as well.

This book is a great reminder for all of us to appreciate the people we have in our lives and to appreciate ourselves and the amazing people we are.

Great book, beautiful writing, and I can't wait to read more from this author.
