Olivia Ross has a chance encounter with a handsome stranger at a local coffee house in Tinseltown. He is an aspiring actor, while Olivia is attempting to write a screenplay that will be her escape from her current mediocre job. They agree to meet up in 10 years on the same date at the same location, hoping that they both will have achieved their dreams by then. Each year on February 4, the date they first met, this man somehow makes an appearance in Olivia’s life, but they’ve never been able to actually connect. Now the 10-year deadline is looming. Will Olivia’s professional and romantic dreams come true on the magical date?
VERDICT Turner’s (Hadley Beckett’s Next Dish) humorous latest has an enjoyable New Adult vibe. However, the convoluted ending will force readers to reread to figure out what exactly happened and how. There is a happily ever after, but not the one most readers will be expecting.
