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

Maybe that was always besides 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 to 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?

Why do I want to read it?

Doesn't that summary sound amazing?  It doesn't sound like a typical book that I would read but so far I've loved every Rainbow Rowell book (I haven't read Attachments yet) so I'm sure that this one won't be different.  The plot line makes it sound like it's not only going to be exciting but like there will be a ton of romance, I can already tell i'll be crying by the end 

What are you waiting for this Wednesday? If you made a post link below! :)
