    4. Life Rewritten was one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a while. After the last couple of books I have read, that were full of angst and misery, you really need a book like this that uplift your spirit. From the very beginning, I connected with Victoria.

With the help of her sister and best friend, she decides to op [...]

    5. Andrea Johnston was born to write! From the first word to the last I fell in love with this story. It is a story that feels so real, as if, you are listening to your best friend talk to you about her "Life Rewritten." We all set out to live our life a certain way, with certain people, but we forget there can be curve balls. This book will take you through that but it will do so with so many different emotions. I laughed, I cried, and I even drank wine and ate chocolate cake while reading. As an [...]

    6. 4 Stars - Wonderfully written book, but just a little more chick-lit than I expected.It also would've been nice to get the hero's perspective. Still a very nice light romance.Big points for 40+ H/h.

    8. Amazing Debut Novel!“I feel powerful. It’s almost as if he believes I can do more than I really can. I feel this awakening within me and it scares the shit out of me. There’s no other way to explain it other than I feel like I am standing at the edge of a cliff ready to jump but I can’t see the bottom. It’s an abyss and I don’t know if I can take the leap.”Life Rewritten is the debut novel of Andrea Johnston and was a fantastic read. The writing is smart, entertaining, and funny. T [...]

    10. This was one of those books that I saw on sale and thought why not. Well I am so glad that I said why not, this was an awesome story. I guess some might call it boring because it was so perfectly normal and believable. There were no crazy exes, there was no one trying to kill anyone, there were no crazy other women, and there was no over the top behavior out of any of the characters. I loved that, it was so refreshing to just have an amazing story that could be you or someone you know. I loved D [...]

    11. Pure greatness I loved this book. Nothing in my life ever goes as planned. Sometimes you just have roll with the punches

    12. I loved Victoria Bennett. Seeing her embark on a new path was inspiring. Since the story is told in first person, you get to hear Victoria's thoughts and it was like talking to one of my girlfriends, highly entertaining. Definitely recommend this one.

    13. *Review copy received in return for an honest review*4.25 “my happy place” stars!!I had a hard time starring Life Rewritten. For a debut novel, this writer did a great job. The romance is swoon worthy and the friendships are entertaining, with an abundance of humor. I sat and went between 4 stars and 4.5 stars for almost 10 minutes before I said, “why not just go with 4.25, you idiot!” “Somehow along the way I lost Victoria. For goodness sake, it took the entire village to create my on [...]

    14. A truly wonderful and heart warming story about finding true love again, in your forties! ."Dating is almost like a really long job interview. Except instead of a power suit and a great up do, you're squeezed into some Spanx and trying not to order food that will stick to your teeth." .A great story about rediscovering love after losing your one true love; and rewriting your life a little. I truly enjoyed diving into Victoria's life, her love of books, coffee, and her son really stuck to me. I f [...]

    15. Victoria is a widow at 40 years old after losing her husband to cancer and is raising an 18 year old son. She has spent the last three years grieving and is giving into her friends and son to 'put herself back out there'. She goes the online dating route and her dating adventures are nightmares that she puts hilarious spins on.

    16. From the very start you are drawn into this refreshing second chance romance by Andrea Johnston. But this isn’t just a second chance love story, it’s also second chance at life, at discovering the strength you have within.In Life Rewritten we meet Victoria, who three years after a devastating loss is trying to move into the next chapter of her life.

    17. Victoria is a grown woman who is having to start over with some very unexpected encouragement. She is determined to find her new happiness. Dillon is a (hot as the oven he bakes in) baker with a Irish accent. *That's all you need to know! Swoon* ok, so maybe he has one flaw. The banter back and forth between these two reminds me that no matter what age you may be, you can be fun, flirty and sexy. Their journey is heart wrenchingly sweet.Life Rewritten reminds me that you are not destined to be t [...]

    18. Well I didn't see that coming! What an enjoyable read about a second chance at love. Once you get past how completely neurotic Victoria is to the point of being extremely annoying it is a really good clean read (minus some language). With all that's happened to Vic and her promises to embrace life she is still holding on and protecting herself, thank God for Anna and Charlotte they help round her out. Dillon has some secrets that just might put a crimp in things but only time may tell. Lots of l [...]

    20. This had so many positive reviews that I thought it'd be a winner. It's okay - perhaps good for reading on a vacation. But I found the plot and character development rather shallow. I also found some of the stuff hard to believe - who has sleepovers with grown women? Really? The main character Victoria comes off more like a 20 something rather than a woman in her 40s. I also am not a fan of using profanity. Just don't see the need for it in a well written book. I did like the ending - I anticipa [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this story. It was nice to read about someone in their forties instead of being college aged. It's a emotional trip following a mid aged widow trying to find her new path in life. I enjoyed MC Victoria and MC Dillon's relationship. I think anyone who reads this book will also fall in love with Dillon!!! The story makes you think about what decisions you would make. It also has some good messages such as hope, trusting yourself and just enjoying what life brings you. I only gave [...]

    22. 3.5 StarsI loved the idea of this book. Victoria's life has come to a stand still. She's unhappy so she takes the steps necessary to make her dreams come true. Her dreams where ones as a reader that I could relate to making the story that much better. I really liked how while there was romance involved the storyline didn't revolve around it.Anna and Charlotte are amazingly supportive, crazy, and ball busting best friends that really added to the story. Justin wasn't your typical teen. His bond w [...]

    23. I read this book with my work book club. It was a light fluffy romance. The author is local to Idaho which made it fun! The main character is just trying to figure out what her new normal is going to be. Life hands her a change she isn't expecting and how she handles that determines the path her life takes. It is interesting to see the story of a widowed middle age adult trying to get back out there. It was more interesting to me to have a main character who so meticulously planned her life go w [...]

    24. This was an amazing story. I loved reading it. This was a different story that was not the twenty year old, googly eyes, fell in love for the first time story. This is a story about mourning, friendship, dating, and falling in love.The online dating experience for Victoria cracked me up. Bless her heart, she dated some doozies! When she finally comes into her own and finds a new career, things begin to take off. She begins a relationship and turns back into a twenty year old. I liked how Johnsto [...]

    26. A Beautiful, Emotional Debut!First let start off by saying that I really enjoyed this read, the author's writing, creativity, descriptions, characters, really everything was just so terrific! I was completely swept away by this novel, ensconced in the story right from the beginning. I found myself really feeling close to the characters, laughing, tearing up, feeling happy, mad, and sad and the whole range of emotions as I read through this book, more than that though I was more experiencing than [...]

    27. Life Rewritten is an entertaining debut novel that isn’t solely focused on the romance, which can be refreshing depending on the reader. For me it was a quick and easy page turner. The story has heart and keeps your attention the entire read. Both the main and secondary characters, as well as their experiences, are easy to relate to. Their story reminds you of the twists and turns life can bring, and that it’s okay to embrace change. A recommended read that will get you in the feels departme [...]

    28. Wow. Where to even begin. Victoria and Dillon's story is incredible. The back story of Patrick and Victoria reminds me a little of my husband and I. We've talked about life and wishes if one of us should die. That's just what happens when you marry your High school soul mate. The story is full of wittiness, tender moments, and just enough neuroses to make me laugh. Andrea weaves a magical story. I simply adored it. And that little twist? Yes! Please tell me there will be more. Perhaps with Anna [...]

    29. I really enjoyed reading this novel. It is very well-written. At times, it felt like it was too good to be true because everything seemed to be going perfectly; however, the plot twist at the end was pretty unexpected and interesting! My take away from the book is that life will not always go according to plan so one should let things take their natural course and enjoy every moment of life. And even if life throws you a curveball, that doesn't mean that things will always remain that way. This [...]
