What if you could live your great love story again?
Lydia and Freddie. Freddie and Lydia. They’ve been together for almost a decade, and Lydia thinks their love is indestructible.
But she’s wrong. Because on her 27th birthday, Freddie dies in a tragic accident.
So now it’s just Lydia, and all she wants to do is hide indoors and sob ’til her eyes fall out. But Lydia knows that Freddie would want her to live her life well. So, enlisting the help of his best friend and her sister Elle, she takes her first tentative steps into the world and starts to live – perhaps even to love – again.
Then something unbelievable happens, and Lydia gets another chance at her old life with Freddie. But what if there’s someone in her new life who wants her to stay?

WHAT DID I THINK?
A super chick flick that I enjoyed immensely, I loved Lydia and all she went through is so lovely. I hoped for a good ending and you got that although I was not expecting that at the beginning. Some things surprise you but you can understand them, I could connect with the running away but what a great time she had. Brilliantly written and I will lookout for more from this author.
