Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

My Thoughts:

If  you could go back in the past and fix your marriage before it starts, would you do it? 
Georgie McCool tells her husband that she can't travel to Omaha to visit his parents because something has come up at work , but she never imagined Neal would pack up the girls and go without her. While her family is out of town she decides to stay with her mom. That is where Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. Georgie takes this as an opportunity to fix her marriage before it even starts. 

 This was the first time I read Rainbow Rowell and I absolutely loved it. I particularly enjoyed the way this book dives into problems that many married couples actually have. Rowells writing is perfection and I really connected with Georgie and Neal. 

This book really made me see how sometime we take our partners for granted and it isn't until they leave that we realize how much we actually need/want them in our life. I really recommend this book it was a fast contemporary read, that had me laughing and crying sometimes at the same time.

I will definitely be reading more Rainbow Rowell!
