When Cadence Anderson woke to find her husband and infant daughter had been killed, she thought her life was over. Instead, she was offered a second chance and sent back in time to do it all again.


She’s made the most of this opportunity, repairing her relationship with the best friend she lost the first time, avoiding the romantic mistakes she made originally, and even bringing her family closer together. But she’s also done something she wasn’t planning on—she’s fallen in love with someone other than her future husband.


Stepping onto a plane and flying across country to attend university is the hardest decision she’s had to make. But unless she follows through with it, her future with Austin might never happen. And what becomes of her beautiful baby if she stays with James, the man she was never supposed to love?


The only thing she knows for certain is that she has to see Austin again, and she’s intent on reliving that part of her previous life exactly like she did the first time. Even if that means she has to lie to James to do it. Because, deep down, she can’t quite bring herself to let him go.


Now, past and future are about to collide, and Cadence has to make her final choice—follow the uncertain path of a life with James, or the one she came back to save . . . with Austin.




Between finishing book 1 and before starting book 2 my feelings were all over the place. I wanted to read book 2 but equally I didn’t want to read it because I loved James.
In the end I took a leap and started reading it. I was quite antsy about it to be honest.
This is a very emotional book and I strongly suggest that you don’t read it in public. I thought that I wouldn’t like Austin and Cadence as a couple but they were great together. I know that it was confusing for Cadence to love two people equally and at one point in my life I was in the same position. Long story and completely off topic here.
To relive the memories with Austin and to know the outcome is pretty tough to deal with. I’m not a fan of cheating and Cadence clearly cheated on James. I got the ending that I thought I would get so all in all I’m happy enough. I give this book 3.5 stars.
