REVIEW: Y’all! Are you looking for a fun book to read? Maybe the perfect book to take to the beach or on vacation? Well have I got a recommendation for you. Plot Twist by Bethany Turner is the best fun I’ve had in a while. I totally enjoyed this book.
The premise of the book is something different. I only wondered who would even make a pact with a stranger ten years down the road? But, these two did! They met on February 4 and agreed to meet in the same coffee house in ten years. He wanted to be an actor and she wanted to be a playwright for films. After they became successful they would partner up and make a film together.
Olivia is the main character who is best friends with Fiona. Liam is someone they both date at different times and they both love. I really liked these characters. Most of the story revolves around them and their escapades. Friendships grow and fade during different times in our life. What do we give up for our friendships? That’s the big question we all have to answer at some point.
Although I’m retirement age, I still enjoyed the characters and could relate to them. The author did an awesome job on this book. You might want to preorder your copy today so it is in your inbox on release day! I know you’re going to have as much fun as I did!
I received a copy of this book from #ThomasNelson for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: An aspiring screenwriter has a chance encounter with an actor who could be the man of her dreams. Over the next ten years, she’ll write the story . . . but will he end up being the star?
February 4, 2003, promises to be a typical day for Olivia Ross—a greeting card writer whose passion project is a screenplay of her own. But after she and a handsome actor have a magical meet-cute in a coffee shop, they make a spontaneous pact: in ten years, after they’ve found the success they’re just sure they’re going to achieve, they’ll return to the coffeehouse to partner up and make a film together. The only problem? Olivia neglected to get the stranger’s name. But she doesn’t forget his face—or the date.
For the next ten years, every February 4 is marked with coincidences and ironies for Olivia. As men come and go and return to her life, she continues to write, but still wonders about the guy from the coffee shop—the nameless actor she’s almost certain has turned out to be Hamish MacDougal, now a famous A-lister and Hollywood leading man.
But a lot can happen in ten years, and while waiting for the curtain to rise on her fate, the true story of Olivia’s life is being written—and if she’s not careful, she’ll completely miss the real-life romantic comedy playing out right before her eyes.
