Georgie McCool loves her husband—and she knows he loves her—but that's almost beside the point, now. When she drops the news that she can't go to Omaha for Christmas at his parent's because she needs to stay in LA for work, she knows he's disappointed. But she didn't think he'd take the kids and go without her. She's sure she's ruined her marriage for good. Yet, that night, she finds a way to talk to Neal in the past—the Neal from before they're married. Now she wonders—should she try to fix her marriage? Or prevent it from the start?

Rainbow Rowell has the amazing ability to show the nitty-gritty of romance (with language that would make a sailor blush) because it is NOT all rainbows and butterflies. I really liked the characters and the timeline format with flashbacks to the past, since it provided just the right amount of depth and background for the characters (I wish I could remember word-for-word what my husband said when he proposed). In the end, it's not a five because her tendency towards profane vocabulary is juvenile and the story as a whole was rather stressful for me. But that's just my personal preference. Overall, an excellent book with a perfect ending.
