Cassandra has a gift. It’s something she’s had since she was a little girl. She can foretell the future and so far she has never been wrong. She writes a column for a weekly magazine, answering letters and giving people advice. Then, when her friend meets television producer, Jack, Cassandra is on TV! But Cassandra has seen the future, a future with her and Jack, but there’s a rule about dating your friend’s boyfriend, right? And Cassandra’s friend, Charlene is convinced he is her true love. Her TV career starts and almost fails when she realizes that when Jack is around, her power is turned off. She can’t see a thing anymore. But fate and destiny have a way of throwing a curve ball and you can’t always see the forest for the trees.

I absolutely adored this book. Claudia Carroll is a great author who knows how to write quirky, humorous characters that crawl into your heart. The dialogue is snappy and I had a few laugh-out-loud moments on the train while reading this book. At first I thought this was going to be another chick-lit about girls worrying about their nails and the newest Manolo’s. I was delightfully surprised. We’ve got a touch of the paranormal and yes, Charlene is like that, but Cassandra is a perfectly normal girl. Well, apart from her psychic gift of course. Jack is a great hero too and Ms. Carroll pens them all together to give one rollicking ride of a read. I read that this book will be filmed by the producer of PS I Love You, and I do hope they keep all the original dialogue in it. I will certainly be at the cinema to see this one!

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
