Product Description

About the Author

JEMMA FORTE grew up wanting to write for Cosmopolitan magazine or be a famous actress. Her parents didn t really want her to go to stage school because, according to them, she was precocious enough already. However, they actively encouraged her obsession with reading and writing, so she wrote her first book Mizzy the germ when she was eight. Years later, due to The Kids from Fame, (and she blames them entirely) her desire to perform hadn t abated. Many hundreds of letters, showreels and auditions later she finally became a Disney Channel presenter in 1998 where she remained for five years. After Disney Jemma went on to present shows for ITV, BBC1, BBC2 and C4. She is now an author, actor and presenter, and this is Jemma s third novel

I found the book to be like "Peggy Sue gets married" meets the Ghost of Christmas past. It is very easy when you are unhappy to dwell on "what-ifs" and I thought Jemma Forte portrayed an unhappily married life very honestly.

Jennifer has an accident and she is transported to a kind of afterlife waiting room in the form of the famous tunnel. Each door she picks leads her to another "what if" scenario.

To be honest, I found all of the jumping around from past to present to present past all very confusing at first. It took a lot of getting used to and I think it distracted me from the story because I had to keep turning back pages to figure out the time-line in my head.

After five weeks in a coma, Jennifer wakes up. Having lived multiple "what if" lives, she is now blessed with gift of hindsight. If there is a moral to the story, I would have to say this: it is nice revisiting the past but you can never wish away your children. In theory, any choice that is made - that results in children, by default is the right one.

The ending is slightly inconclusive, but so is life. Sometimes you end up exactly where you are meant to be. It was a very enjoyable book that will lead to you being thought provoked and take you to the land of "What if's".

By Skelf TOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 Mar. 2014
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This sounded great in the blurb and I was expecting a nice, fun 'what if' book. I got the 'what if' but the fun part was short lived. What started out as entertaining quickly became quite confusing and frustrating. The constant jumping forwards, backwards and sideways every time someone new was introduced made my eyes glaze over a bit. It got quite dark towards the end too and not at all what I would have expected, considering the cover has a definite 'chick lit' feel to it.

It's a good story about missed chances and regrets but not really the lighthearted read I hoped for.

I picked this book because it had been given good reviews by a couple of magazines and the story sounded interesting. It's about Jennifer who has an argument with her husband and storms out of the house to go to her best friends. However, she doesn't get there because she is knocked over by a car and ends up in a coma. Being in the coma enables her to see what her life would have been like had she stayed with ex-boyfriends. Unfortunately, I just didn't like Jennifer as a character. Also the going backwards and forwards in time took some getting used to. I kept reading hoping it would start grabbing me, but it didn't. There was an interesting twist towards the end. However, the ending was awful and didn't answer any questions raised in the book.

This is posted on my blog as a review for the publishers - www.apageoffictionallove.blogspot.co.uk

I actually REALLY loved this! It reminded me a lot of Ali Harris' Written in the Stars that I read in 2014, yet it was different enough to not feel as though you were reading the same story.

It was original, and kept me on the edge of my seat for the 3 days it took me to devour it because simply put, I couldn't put it down!

Jennifer is basically having a mid life crisis, one of those moments in life where you wake up and suddenly wonder if you made the right choices in life, if this is ALL there is, and what if.... you'd done things differently.

We've all had those WHAT IF moments, and I couldn't help nodding along as Jennifer's story unfolded. We always wonder what if...about out exes, we do it ladies, and maybe only our closest girlfriends know, but in this book, it's OK to admit to Jennifer that you know exactly what she's going through.

It starts with Jen running away from Max, her husband in a rather Bridget Jones styled way, and before you know it she's been hit, and is being taken to hospital where she is in a coma.
Whilst she's in her comatose state she gets the chance to go tunnel travelling to all the possibilities that could have been. She gets to see what life would have been like had she gone to Australia with Aiden (who is more laid back than an ozzie) rather than University, or marry Tim, creator of reUNIon... the super rich guy who at first looks amazing, but, i don't know about you, but when I read about life with him, I had to verbally declare that Jennifer, in my opinion should absolutely stay clear of him, and lastly there is Max, her husband.

This is a book that I found extremely entertaining. Jennifer is in a coma after an accident and finds herself in a position where she can answer the question that has been niggling at her of what her life would be like now if she had chosen to stay with any one of her three ex boyfriends instead of marrying husband Max. Would the grass have been greener on the other side of the marital fence? The story was a little confusing at first, but I soon got used to it. It is told in present time, the week leading up to the accident, flashbacks to her life with Max, as well as a series of “flashes to what might have been if ….”. You do really have to keep your wits about you a bit so as to keep each strand of the story separate in your mind.

I was soon drawn into the story and loved how each of the ex boyfriends would have offered Jennifer a very different lifestyle to the one she is living now. I particularly liked the way that Jennifer herself seems to be a slightly different person in each of her different lives, adapting to the circumstances she finds herself in.

I was hooked, wanting to know how everything would work out, not only in her alternative lives, but also in real life. I have to say I was very disappointed with the ending. It is a book that, for me, needed to be wrapped up with a bow at the end, to give me some feeling of conclusion, but it is very open ended and just left me feeling a little dissatisfied.
