Get ready to fall for this year’s most extraordinary love story.

Quinn and Minnie are born on New Year’s Eve, in the same hospital, one minute apart. Their lives may begin together, but their worlds couldn’t be more different.

Loved it.

I cannot recommend this this book enough. The narrator was perfect and brought this wonderful story to life....thought provoking, humour and romance all rolled into one perfect book.

Cliche

I love a rom-com, but this is eye rolling cliche! An easy listen but didn’t capture me.

Feel good 'missed chance' romance!

Brilliant characters, funny, warm, engaging and beautifully narrated by Hannah! Can't wait to read more from this author.

DNF

I gave up in the end! Minnie seemed so negative and miserable it was difficult to listen to. The narrator didn’t help as she said everything in a down beat manner. The story just wasn’t interesting enough and I gave up with a few hours left to listen because I didn’t want to listen to the narrator anymore and I didn’t care what happened to the characters.

Beautifully written, witty, gripping read!

Beautifully written, witty, gripping read! Cleverly put together and very enjoyable. The descriptions of the characters, and narrative really helped to bring the book to life.

Such a lush story 4🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was so nice to listen too. I always wondered what Labour, delivery and birthdays would be like on New Years Eve and New Years Day. Thanks to the lovely writer Sophie Cousens I caught a glimpse.

I have read dual timeline books before and they haven't been that clear but this book went back to NYE 1990 and went through to NYD 2021, I am happy to say that I did NOT get confused once.

I loved that the writer included Mental health issues and anxiety as a massive majority of people suffer with it.

The narrator was really good although I always have to adjust the narration speed for it to be faster.

I really do recommend this book 😀

Brilliant

Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters. I couldn’t stop listening. It was read beautifully and I got lost on the story. I didn’t want it to end!!

Another perfect book!

Sophie Cousens has done it again! Another book that made me laugh out loud and that can warm even the coldest of hearts.
A beautiful and clumsy love story, full of characters you can really relate too.
The perfect book for a cold winters day ❤️❤️

What a cracker

This is a book I wish I could give more than 5 stars to. It absolutely captivated me from the off. I reluctantly put it down for sleep and picked it up straight away the next day eager to further immerse myself in Minnie and Quinns life. Not the usual chocolate box romance, this story had a serious mental health side story. The book had the perfect the balance of serious, humour and romance. I can tell this is one I'm going to be gushing about for ages! Great narration really drew me in. Hannah has a very easy to listen to voice
