I disagree with the other reviewer. I found her going back in time, and not just by a day, was a way to gather info and find out how the first event ensued. !

I really don't give this book any kind of rating, when I realized it is written in this stupid format---every morning she wakes up she goes BACK a day? I mean really?

I have completely quit reading anything that has a 'timeline' to it as I find it completely unnecessary to do that to tell a story!

I read a few reviews on Amazon and the 2 ratings hit the nail on the head! The 5 ratings? I don't believe their reviews as so many people now are giving good reviews in order to receive free books

So, I'm not saying don't read this book I'm just saying how stupid the format of the story is written

I enjoyed this book so much! I wasn't sure early on but it just gets better as it goes. This is a unique tale with nostalgia, heart, suspense and some surprising curve balls thrown in. I thought I knew what was going on only to find I didn't know at all. I loved the ending. I will look forward to reading more from this author.

Jen Brotherhood and her husband, Kelly, are waiting for their eighteen-year-old son to return home before his curfew. Jen is relieved when she sees Todd walking toward the house; but she is shocked when she sees Todd stab a man who approached him on the road. The police arrive quickly and take Todd into custody for murder. Neither Jen nor Kelly can believe what they saw. The next morning, Jen wakes up determined to contact a good lawyer for her son. But she quickly discovers that today is not the day after the murder...it is the day before.

Jen is living her life backwards and doesn't know why. Each morning she wakes up at an earlier point in her life. Each day she sees the changes in Todd that she never noticed before because she was busy with her career. As Jen goes further and further back in time, she discovers crucial clues to what caused her son to murder a stranger.

I used to enjoy reading time-travels; but haven't read a good one in a long time. Finally, I found one worth reading! This is tightly-plotted mystery with a unique premise. Jen knows that she must find out why her son would commit such a heinous act. With each leap backwards, she collects new information. There were several twists to the plot. I guessed a few of them, but others were a complete surprise. I highly recommend this book. My rating: 5 Stars.
