Summary

A gorgeous new festive book from the Kindle #1 bestselling author of The Ladies' Midnight Swimming Club

When Liv Latimer says goodbye to her colleagues and finishes work for the holidays, she's looking forward to a Christmas to remember with her boyfriend Eddie.

But before she makes it home, her phone rings, calling her back into work. And Liv is faced with a choice. Does she do as she's always done, and put herself second? Or, will she say no, so she can finally begin the life she's dreamed of?

Liv's decision will turn her world upside down in ways she could never have imagined.

Because whatever choice she makes, Liv is about to discover, fate finds a way...

From the bestselling Irish author of The Ladies' Midnight Swimming Club, comes an emotional and uplifting festive story about love, family and how a split-second decision can change your life.

struggled

found it abit hard going following which story we were listening to as the switch was not made clear or distinctive... by the end I was completely jumbled up

Not ideal for an audio book

Have enjoyed other books by Faith Hogan but the way this one is written does not lend itself to an audio version. It wasn’t until I had struggled and replayed several of the early chapters then got the book version that I realised there was 2 different storylines because these are distinguished by 2 font styles. The narrator however, has nothing with which to advise the listener of the switch between them and I found it all too confusing. Usually there is a chapter title or if it’s a time slip a date or similar to let you know you are moving between storylines. Gave up listening on audible and read the book tho I only stuck with it because I had paid for both versions!! To be honest I didn’t catch on to the fact it was a version of ‘sliding doors’ until I checked out other people’s reviews by which time I had finished the book still none the wiser and had put it down as some confusing time slip novel that didn’t make sense! Much prefer the Midnight Ladies swim club.

chapter muddle

chapters listed not in line with book chapters which makes it difficult to go to right chapter after eg sleep timer keeps on jumping back to same chapter. does not finish chapters. Would consider my device to be faulty if other audio books wouldn't work perfectly.
