Gabby Wolf, torn between two alternate realities when her wish to have it all comes true, plans the perfect wedding to her longtime boyfriend in Phoenix, while flying solo and working at her glamorous new job in New York City, and must decide which life is a dream and which is a reality. Original.

Simon and Schuster
Gabby Wolf has pretty much, almost definitely (this close!) come to a decision: She's trading in Phoenix (nice but uneventful life with boyfriend) for Manhattan (dream job as producer for highly successful news show). Then Cam swoops in and gives her a sparkling engagement ring, making her decision even more impossible. Husband vs. career. Vera Wang wedding dress vs. sexy first-date outfits. Planting roots in Phoenix vs. playing the field in Manhattan? She wishes she didn't have to decide, that she could have it all.

She never expects her wish to come true.

Suddenly Gabby's living two lives. Whenever she falls asleep in one, she wakes up in the other. She's got the best of both worlds — what more could a girl ask for? Right?

This fantastic (and fantastical) new novel from bestselling author Sarah Mlynowski will have you flipping pages as quickly as Gabby flips lives to find out which Gabby reigns supreme in the battle of Me vs. Me.

What a nail-biter of a story (pun intended)! Ms. Mlynowski gives a convincing rendition of a woman determined to have it all—only to find that getting everything you ever wanted isn’t always such a great idea. We’re taken along on a wild journey as one woman tries to keep her would-be fiancé on the west coast and a fabulous career on the east. Her writing is assured as we try to keep up with the frenetic and exhausting pace of a woman who finds herself literally living two lives that switch back and forth every time she falls asleep.

I was rooting for New York, frankly. No surprise, since I happen to be a singleton living in the Big Apple (all the single ladies, all the single ladies, put your hands up). Surely, being married to the man of your dreams, the one and only, the true love of your life, etc., etc., sounds divine. But not when he comes attached to the nightmare of all mother-in-laws who insists on railroading over every single one of your decisions because she knows what’s best for her little snookums.

Gag. Yikes! What’s a girl to do? Gabrielle’s decision isn’t easy to guess—quite a feat, given that this is a romance novel. Most romances end with the girl choosing the guy over the career, right? But Ms. Mlynowski has a trick or two up her sleeve, one that plays neatly with the rest of the novel without feeling like a cheat.

People who feel that Gabby should make one choice over the other, making sacrifices and accepting that any choice will involve significant and painful loss, might feel that Ms. Mlynowski tried too hard for a perfect ending. I think she got it just right.
