Goodreads:  What if you knew exactly when you’d meet the love of your life? Edie Meyer knows. When her Grandma Gloria was a young woman, she had a vision of the exact day she would meet her soul mate—and then Grandpa Ray showed up.

Since then, Gloria has accurately predicted the day every single member of the family has met their match. Edie’s day arrives on June 24, 2022, when she’s twenty-nine years old. She has been waiting for it half her life. That morning, she boards an airplane to her twin sister’s surprise engagement, and when a handsome musician sits beside her, she knows it’s meant to be.

But fate comes with more complications than Edie expected and she can’t fight the nagging suspicion that her perfect guy doesn’t have perfect timing. After a tragedy and a shocking revelation rock Edie’s carefully constructed world, she’s forced to consider whether love chooses us, as simple as destiny, or if we choose it ourselves.

Kritters Thoughts:  Edie Meyer is ready for HER DAY to begin as it will be the day that she meets the love of her life.  Her grandmother has predicted the dates of all of her family members and each found the person they were to marry on "their days."  Edie's twin Rae met her love in college and they have been together ever since, but waited a few years to get engaged once they were both settled in their careers and Edie is craving for a relationship that looks like theirs - can her guy arrive on HER DAY?!

What a sweet romance.  While I am not a huge reader of magic and witches and all of those things, this one is not that at all.  It was so fun to watch the main character try to live up to the expectations that are set by her family members and see how those dominos will fall.  Often we think about if we had known our death date, but to know the date you will meet the one is an interesting question to ask - does it help or hurt your other relationships that happen before and are there even more expectations put on the people you meet that day?  I loved how this book dealt with these questions and the story was so perfectly paced.  

With only a few steamy scenes that were appropriately placed, I would recommend this romance to those who avoid the overtly sexy times as these fit in the story and were quick and not too graphic.  

My second Hannah Orenstein book and there are two in her backlist and I hope to add them to my summer reading because this book was perfect for a day at the pool!  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want sequel
