Robb debuts with a whimsical contemporary romance starring Gemma, a 28-year-old woman who is mending a broken heart after being dumped by her boyfriend. One margarita-filled night, she performs a spell to erase her ex from her life. When she wakes up, she’s in an alternate reality where her ex no longer exists, but other things in her life have also changed. Her handsome best friend Dax doesn’t recognize her and thinks she’s a disaster, but on the other hand, she now owns an amazing beauty store. Gemma has one moon cycle to reverse the spell, but as she waits, her decision to go back to her previous life or stay in this new one becomes uncertain. Robb has created a lovable protagonist who is enjoyable to watch grow as she deals with what it would be like to reverse one’s life choices and have a second chance at love. Narrator Khaya Fraites has a smooth and believable voice as she portrays the various characters, and the banter she voices between Gemma and Dax is simply delightful and delicious.
VERDICT Fans of Tessa Bailey’s Hook, Line, and Sinker or Emily Henry’s People We Meet on Vacation will devour Robb’s debut.
