Book Overview



Their lives began together, but their worlds couldn't be more different. After thirty years of missed connections, they're about to meet again.

Minnie Cooper knows two things with certainty: that her New Year's birthday is unlucky, and that it's all because of Quinn Hamilton, a man she's never met. Their mothers gave birth to them at the same hospital just after midnight on New Year's Day, but Quinn was given the cash prize for being the first baby born in London in 1990--and the name Minnie was meant to have, as well. With luck like that, it's no wonder each of her birthdays has been more of a disaster than the one before.

When Minnie unexpectedly runs into Quinn at a New Year's party on their mutual thirtieth birthday, she sees only more evidence that fortune has continued to favor him. The gorgeous, charming business owner truly seems to have it all--while Minnie's on the brink of losing her pie-making company and her home. But if Quinn and Minnie are from different worlds, why do they keep bumping into each other? And why is it that each fraught encounter leaves them both wanting more?

A moving, joyful love story, This Time Next Year explores the way fate leads us to the people we least expect--no matter what the odds.

I tried to get in it, read like 40 pages of the book, was very easy to put it down and never open again, Mr. O'Neill said.
   Very sweet
Couldn't put it down. Loved the structure of the book, the main characters and the story line. Happy to be back home, working on the next book or movie.
What a great read! Turner said he hopes people will enjoy the show "even if they don't get married." I will miss MInnie more than anything. Please contact Deborah Lebowitz at (313) 222-2027 or deborah. lebowitz@gmail. com for more information.
   I finished this book last night and I want to read it again!
Great story, said Blair. It's just that hard to put down! There is a bonus at the end of the book, so read every page.
   Started with a bang but out with a whimper
The second half of the book is great, too. Really enjoyed the show, and the whole concept of 'Archie' was great. It towed the very fine line of being quirky without being cringeworthy, Bruno said. However, halfway through the book, that line was forgotten and the quirk quickly became cringeworthy on every page. I imagine this is the type of book an old person reads and squeals with delight at just how immature the characters seem to be compared to their cohort—especially Minnie, who is so self centered she believes the universe has plotted against her every December 31st for her entire life to make her birthday unlucky for her. 3 stars because I wish the book had ended a little better, which is a sign of a strong concept and a strong first half, and I don't want to ignore the good work there.
   What a great year end read
A lovely story. The writing was smart, the pace was just right and the characters were well developed, Morgenthau said. If you kiss a man and he runs a mile, he's no good. Life is full of times you have to turn toward the storm, and life brings many storms, he said. Sick children, parents, dying cancer just the challenge of building a life together and not driving each other crazy, Raymond said. You need a man who will turn in to the storm with you when it comes, he said.
   A lot can happen over a year...
His voice is so cute, I almost fell over. I'm not ashamed to admit that I was a hopeless romantic, Hughes said in an interview. A great story to read during the holidays, said E.T. Reichert.
   It was cute ,started out clever ended very predictable
The first 50 percent I absolutely loved, enjoyed, laughed out loud, would most definitely recommend as a fun romantic comedy. The second half plowed on, getting so predictable with the relationship between the main characters that it was hard to predict what would happen next. It was a frustrating read that started out very well and ended very well because, well, you just need it too. 3 1/2 stars, Strong First Half, Fantastic Second Half, Same old cutesy romcom reads second half.
I finished this book at 300AM with tears starting to steam down from my eyes because it's that good and cleverly written! For reference, I started reading on Dec. 1st when it got delivered and finished early Dec. 7th, and I have not read a full novel since Dec. 2016 prior to this. If you're a sappy romantic or your favorite movie is Love Actually, chances are you will love this book as much as I did. It's hopeful yet realistic in its portrayal of characters with real issues and real feelings.
   Surprisingly charming!
I'm not sure how I found this book, but I'm so glad I did! For once, the heroine wasn't an early 20-something woman stumbling around and always saying or doing the wrong thing, but is inexplicably charming all the same. The male protagonist, Quinn, is as flawed and vulnerable as she is, and somehow it works together to make a lovely story of two people trying to find themselves first so they can find each other, he said. Well written, nicely devloped characters, and a charming story, I bought three copies to give as gifts. Highly recommended, especially if you are looking forward to New Years 2021 as I am.
