Jillian Westfield has been living a perfect life – at least according to the magazine articles that have been advising her. She has put so much pressure on herself to be the ideal wife and mother that she breaks under the stress of it all. In a kind of freaky accident-by-massage she finds herself living seven years earlier. Her same life, seven years earlier. The do-over of all do-overs! She’s back living with her boyfriend Jackson and on the fast track at work. She’s reliving familiar situations and sees how she could have reacted differently the first time. The question is: Should she do things differently? If she does, it could change her life, that of her husband (not Jack, by the way), her daughter, friends and relatives.
Jillian needs to come to terms with a few things from her past. In doing so, will she make decisions that could change her future? Or, will she take what she discovers and return to her real life?
I enjoyed how things played out in this entertaining book. There’s a lot of truth in it. Allison Winn Scotch’s novel is charming and fresh. I found myself cheering Jillian on as she figured things out. Time Of My Life would be a great book club selection.
