For Twice In My Life

Little, Brown. Feb. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9780316451031. $28. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Layla is nursing a broken heart after Ian, her boyfriend of two years, suddenly breaks up with her. Weeks later, she gets called to Ian’s side at the emergency room. He’s suffered a concussion and doesn’t remember anything recent—including the fact that Layla and Ian are no longer together. Conflicted about deceiving him, but glad to have another chance at making their relationship work, Layla plays along and pretends the break-up never happened. Things seem to be going well until she meets Ian’s angsty and artistic brother Matt, whom she connects with on a deeper level. Now she’s questioning her return to Ian. This contemporary romance set in Seattle and the scenic San Juan Islands offers a fresh take on second chances.
VERDICT Readers who enjoy quirky characters and novels with strong family dynamics will be pleased by this newest offering from Christie (The Rehearsals).
