Summary

From the acclaimed author of Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo comes a breathtaking novel about a young woman whose fate hinges on the choice she makes after bumping into an old flame; in alternating chapters, we see two possible scenarios unfold - with stunningly different results.

At the age of 29, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless jobs since graduating college. On the heels of leaving another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles and takes up residence with her best friend, Gabby. Shortly after, Hannah goes out to a bar one night with Gabby and meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan.

Just after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she’s ready to go. A moment later, Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan?

In concurrent story lines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as the people around her. As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: is anything meant to be? Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she’s found him.

If I have to hear the words Cinnamon Roll again…

Liking a specific type of food is not a personality trait and it definitely doesn’t need to be mentioned as many times as it does in this book.

Cinnamon rolls are the main character and things just happen around them. Super disappointing when her other books are so good.

An easy listen - if you like chick lit

I’ve listened to Daisy and the Six and Malibu Rising and really enjoyed them - so was expecting a similar vibe - however this book is a bit different and is a little on the cheesy side. It was a pleasant enough listen- I liked the characters and was intrigued as to where the story line was going - but it didn’t quite end up being what I’d hoped for. But I’m sure many will love it and if romance novels is your vibe then I recommend.

Lame

Maye I have passed the age to indulge romance, maybe the plot is dull itself. I haven’t finished the book, only at Chap 26 and nothing significant happened. Well a car accident happened. Anyways, so many details left untold, just alternative present without much to say about the past or future. I struggle through and have yet figured why it is viral.
