This Time Next Year: A novel

We rated this book:


Minnie Cooper was born on January 1, 1990, just a couple of minutes after midnight. Her mother, Connie, had hoped she’d be the first baby of the new decade and win the $10,000 prize that came along with it. The family could sure use the money. But the woman Connie helped through labor, Tara, ended up giving birth just a minute before her…she also stole the name Minnie was supposed to have, Quinn. Thus, Minnie was born under the shadow of Quinn Hamilton and his name-stealing mother.

This is a brilliantly written story about love, redemption, friendship, and self-empowerment. The story has perfectly executed flashbacks of Minnie and Quinn’s lives over the years leading to the day they finally meet, their mutual thirtieth birthday. What a warm, lovely, cast of characters…from Minnie’s best friend Leila and the quirky assortment of people they work with, to the parents of both Minnie and Quinn, you’ll love spending time in their world. 

This book is an absolute delight, both because it’s a lovely story and it’s so well written. I’m so glad I read this book. Definitely, a feel-good tale to cozy up with.
