The Rewind

Berkley. Nov. 2022. 368p. ISBN 9780593546536. pap. $17. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Frankie and Ezra spent their years at college in an unlikely, opposites-attract love affair. Frankie was determined to experience freedom from her family’s expectations, with no real vision for her future. Ezra was the reliable one with a plan, devotion for his terminally ill mother, and a desire for a happy and committed relationship. However, their relationship ended in a spectacular fight and 10 years of stony silence between them. Now the two are back on campus for a mutual friend’s wedding on the eve of Y2K, and their reunion has resulted in them waking up in bed together with a pair of wedding rings and no memory of the previous night. They have only hours to determine what happened before the start of the wedding and a new millennium. Nineties nostalgia is alive and well in this moving story of a lost first love and second chances. Readers will enjoy piecing together both the story of the forgotten night and the reasons behind the relationship’s disastrous first ending.
VERDICT The collegiate atmosphere and New Year’s Eve setting make this a cozy, romantic read from Scotch (Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing).
