Kitty Miller runs a bookshop with her best friend Frieda in Denver. She tried the dating stuff but that was not really working out. Totally satisfied with being able to run her own life. But then she starts having this weird dreams.
Katharyn Andersson lives in Denver. She is married to Lars and they have triplets. She used to run a bookstore with her friend Frieda but circumstances changed and now she is a stay at home mum. These dreams are exactly what Kitty Miller imagined her life would look like. When she is not sure what part of her life is real anymore she starts to investigate both to find out.

This is one of the best double story books I read. It kept me wondering for a long time what was real and what not. I did guess what the trigger was but it still did not tell me what was real and what not. I had to wait till the end of the book to get answers to all of my questions.
Kitty/ Katharyn her confusion is in every page. This makes it easy to cheer for her for finding the truth. In both lives she does make mistakes making her human for both stories. It made me wonder if there was a twin or something. Frieda and Lars and other people in both stories are more important for the interaction they have with her than as their own character.
Helen from My Novel Opinion made the reading list for this book.
Now we just need a playlist with all the great music named in this book.

You should totally make a music playlist to go along with the book! I did that for Frog Music and it was a lot of fun. :)

I finished it this week and I agree with your review. I loved the book, it was great to discover what was going on little by little, and see that that perfect dream wasn't so perfect at all.
I also love the idea of the playlist :)))
