What if you found The One, then lost him again?

Or not so much lost him as became the neurotic, needy girlfriend from hell. The girl who tried to make him choose between her and his job, and got seriously paranoid about his relationship with his best female friend...

Zoe knows she doesn't deserve another chance with David. But if there's the tiniest possibility of making things right, she'll snatch it. Even if it means breaking the laws of physics to do so...


If I Could Turn Back Time is chick-lit at its best – fun, flirty, sweet, ridiculous, entertaining, romantic and everything else great – so great I just wish it didn’t have to end. Some days you just need to read a book that will make you smile and Nicola Doherty’s writing was the perfect tonic.

So many parts of this book just made me laugh – stand outs for me were probably the pub quiz and the doubles tennis match which I could just picture watching in those ridiculous chick-flicks I love so much. In fact, Zoe’s whole dialogue throughout this book made me smile. She was a fun character and I was just picturing her as my friend, wishing I could be there to send her down the right track! I liked David’s character too and how he wasn’t the typical perfect boyfriend I read so often. The rest of the characters in this book livened it up as well – especially Max and Harriet who I loved.

I also loved how although I felt like this book was the perfect chick-lit, it had a couple of twists and elements which made it different and put it well above a lot of those kind of novels. So, If I Could Turn Back Time was everything I love in a book but with a little bit more too. I kind of seem like I’m trying to fit the word love into this review as much as possible but I just can’t think of another word to express how much I needed to read a brilliant book like this.

Fab cover, fab characters and a fab book, If I Could Turn Back Time is wonderful. If I was being all clich├ęd I’d say how much I wish I could turn back time and read it again but it really would be true. I really, really loved this book and now I’m sensing the biggest book hangover ever…
