In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

Where do you see yourself in five years?

When Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Cohan is asked this question at the most important interview of her career, she has a meticulously crafted answer at the ready. Later, after nailing her interview and accepting her boyfriend's marriage proposal, Dannie goes to sleep knowing she is right on track to achieve her five-year plan.

But when she wakes up, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. The television news is on in the background, and she can just make out the scrolling date. It’s the same night—December 15—but 2025, five years in the future.

After a very intense, shocking hour, Dannie wakes again, at the brink of midnight, back in 2020. She can’t shake what has happened. It certainly felt much more than merely a dream, but she isn’t the kind of person who believes in visions. That nonsense is only charming coming from free-spirited types, like her lifelong best friend, Bella. Determined to ignore the odd experience, she files it away in the back of her mind.

That is, until four-and-a-half years later, when by chance Dannie meets the very same man from her long-ago vision.

Brimming with joy and heartbreak, In Five Years is an unforgettable love story that reminds us of the power of loyalty, friendship, and the unpredictable nature of destiny.

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I listened to In Five Years by Rebecca Serle and it was such enjoyable experience. It explores the absolute beauty of female friendship, through all its ups and downs and although it is referenced as a love story, it is more of a story between two women who are as different as can be but remain steadfastly loyal and close through the years.

There’s just a hint of something otherworldly happening here but it is more about the lives of Dannie and Bella, two best friends and how things will intersect in both a heart-wrenching and tragic way and also the joys that are found in the complete knowing of one person. This is not a predictable story, not in the slightest and that is one of the things I liked most about it.

Thank you to Libro.FM and Simon & Shuster for providing me with an Advanced Listening Copy of In Five Years in exchange for my honest opinion.
