1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it, 22 Jan 2014
With time travel you expect the character to learn something about themselves but likable-but-dull Kelli jumped into the future as her 50-year-old self and 're-evaluated' her life when she came back by dumping her boyfriend and announcing she was changing her job.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little boring, 22 Jan 2014
Boring in parts and hard to get into. I read to the end but book had no substance and the characters seemed all the same. I normally enjoy this author so maybe she was having an off day when she wrote this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Such a shame., 20 July 2013
It started so well. Funny, entertaining, profound (in parts) but then became sort of predictable and samey. The characters became dull and I struggled to get to the middle. It did pick up again, but not much. I finished it, but won't remember anything about this book next week, I'm sure!
