How many lifetimes would you travel to find a love that lasts for ever? When single career girl Jo-Jo steps onto a zebra crossing and gets hit by a car, she awakes to find herself in 1963. The fashion, the music, her job, even her romantic life: everything is different. And then it happens three more times, and Jo-Jo finds herself living a completely new life in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The only people she can rely on are Harry and Ellie, two companions from 2013, and George, the owner of a second-hand record store.
If she's ever to return from her travels, Jo-Jo must work out why she's jumping through time like this. And if she does make it back, will her old life ever be the same again?

What an incredible master weaving of characters, plot line and story development. To say nothing that it was based entirely upon the greatest musical four some of all time. This is hands-down one of the most delightful, intriguing and well-crafted stories I've read in a very, very long time.

This author has an astounding skill to pick up all the threads that she created over a span of time and bring everyone of them back together. I listened to this while on a very long car trip, And was so intrigued and absorbed that before I knew it nearly 9 hours had flown by!

Thank you for the story!!

Slow starting, but enjoyable story

Like I already experianced with Aly McNamara's books, the second part is always the better.
With an interesting premise, the first half of the book become a little boring and I wasn't seeing where is was going with those confusing and illogical junps in the timeline. There seemed to be no rule or sense to the time travelling and I started to fear it was all about the Beatles references, and I wasn't enthusiastic. But then around the half or a bit earlier I started to understand and enjoy the story, and the end was sweet and satisfying although not particularly original. If you love beatles and I quick sweet read that's ok, and I was even a little bit moved one time around the end..
