Synopsis from Goodreads: Can you stop a murder after it’s already happened?


Late October. After midnight. You’re waiting up for your seventeen-year-old son. He’s late. As you watch from the window, he emerges, and you realize he isn’t alone: he’s walking toward a man, and he’s armed.


You can’t believe it when you see him do it: your funny, happy teenage son, he kills a stranger, right there on the street outside your house. You don’t know who. You don’t know why. You only know your son is now in custody. His future shattered.


That night you fall asleep in despair. All is lost. Until you wake . . .


. . . and it is yesterday.


And then you wake again . . .


. . . and it is the day before yesterday.


Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. With another chance to stop it. Somewhere in the past lies an answer. The trigger for this crime—and you don’t have a choice but to find it . . .


My Review: Unpopular opinion time. I didn't really enjoy this one. I just could not get into the story at all. Part of my issue was that you basically know the ending before you could get into the book so the push to finish the book became whether the ending could be changed or not, which made it seem like a slow read for me. I also felt like it took the main character too long to just accept what was going on and get into detective mode. I felt like the flashback parts of the story didn't really work for me either. The narrator and writing were great but it just wasn't a good fit for me.
