‘A wacky, improbable tale of two girls being struck by lightning at the same time with interesting consequences. It’s Cecelia Ahern territory, highly recommended.’ The Bookseller

Michaela was a likeable character and along with her character as the reader I was also confused about what on earth had happened to her. I also liked the other secondary characters of Callum, Matt, Abby etc even though I would have liked more info and background on all of them and more in depth details of what had happened to them in 6 and a half years.
I didn't particularly like how Michaela ended up in bed with Matt after something like 2 days and was somehow "in love" with him but my issue with this in the end was the ending. There was no conclusion to the book, no confirmation of what actually happened to Michaela, she just moved on from one guy to the next even though it didnt feel like 6 and a half years to her. I love good fiction but there's only so much I can believe before it starts feeling a little silly. Maybe as the reader we were to come up with our own conclusion and I choose to believe the Science of it BUT i would have preferred it to have been written out plainly.
I loved Could it be Magic? and is one of the reasons I was looking forward to reading this but it wasn't as good. I would read more from this author in the future though purely because Could it be Magic still stands as one of my all time favourites.
This book focuses on Micheala who did a parachute jump and when she landed, six years had gone by. If you can't accept the unexplained even for the sake of a good story then you won't like this book or her other ones either, but if you can suspend reason and just enjoy the story then this is definitely recommended and you're in for a treat. I'm not all that keen on these love at first sight romances that the author tends to go for, but they do fit in with the way she writes so not a major issue. Really enjoyed this.
I really like the concept of this book. It's quite a nice plot idea.
Which I have to say wasn't executed greatly in this book. There could have been so many more interesting things happen to the main character regarding her disappearance. As a previous reviewer stated, technology changes etc. not once did Kaela question what had happened in world events or even celebrity for that matter. She never really questioned things either.
I was left wanting more put it that way.
But having said that, take the book for what it is. A superficial chick lit. Easy read for the beach/holiday.
