    " Ok, my thought while reading this was, "Am I the only person who doesn't have a summerhouse on my property?" Geez, everyone had them in this book...seems they were required for all homeowners. lol. But, I thought the overall theme of the book...second chances and rediscovering self...was a good one. I like stories that let people explore more about themselves and their true happiness. At the same time though, I thought the "supernatural" part of the whole thing was a little hokey. A pleasant read with likeable characters, but just an average rating. "

    " Does cause one to think about the choices that they have made and if they could change one thing, what would it be and what are the risks of making that change. "

    " I thought this book was ok. The story was fun in that the 3 main characters were able to relive 3 weeks of their lives to see what would have happened with different choices. The plot used a little too much male bashing for me though, every story seemed to focus on the men that had ruined their lives. The women did end up learning more about themselves though through the time change, but I was still a little turned off. "
