Goodreads description:

Where do you see yourself in five years?

When Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Kohan is asked this question at the most important interview of her career, she has a meticulously crafted answer at the ready. Later, after nailing her interview and accepting her boyfriend’s marriage proposal, Dannie goes to sleep knowing she is right on track to achieve her five-year plan.

But when she wakes up, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. The television news is on in the background, and she can just make out the scrolling date. It’s the same night—December 15—but 2025, five years in the future.

After a very intense, shocking hour, Dannie wakes again, at the brink of midnight, back in 2020. She can’t shake what has happened. It certainly felt much more than merely a dream, but she isn’t the kind of person who believes in visions. That nonsense is only charming coming from free-spirited types, like her lifelong best friend, Bella. Determined to ignore the odd experience, she files it away in the back of her mind.

That is, until four-and-a-half years later, when by chance Dannie meets the very same man from her long-ago vision.

Brimming with joy and heartbreak, In Five Years is an unforgettable love story that reminds us of the power of loyalty, friendship, and the unpredictable nature of destiny.

This book reminds me of Liane Moriarty’s What Alice Forgot. This story is total “Chick Lit”, but a very fun, light read. Dannie, the main character, could be annoying and smug, but I still enjoyed it. I loved the ending- it was totally unpredictable.

Not quite sure what to say about this book. I definitely liked it, but I felt a little uncomfortable and queasy when reading it. Based on readability, I could not put it down – I wanted to know what the “real” story was; based on likeability of characters – nope. I did not really like any of the characters or feel any connection to them. Will you be surprised when you read this book? Yes! – and if you say you weren’t, I will say you read the reviews before you read the book – don’t do it! This is not a romance novel. I say read it – and when you do, let me know what YOU think!
