In Five Years is as clever as it is moving, the rare read-in-one-sitting novel you won’t forget.” —Chloe Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Immortalists

Perfect for fans of Me Before You and One Day—a striking, powerful, and moving love story following an ambitious lawyer who experiences an astonishing vision that could change her life forever.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Dannie Kohan lives her life by the numbers.

She is nothing like her lifelong best friend—the wild, whimsical, believes-in-fate Bella. Her meticulous planning seems to have paid off after she nails the most important job interview of her career and accepts her boyfriend’s marriage proposal in one fell swoop, falling asleep completely content.

But when she awakens, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. Dannie spends one hour exactly five years in the future before she wakes again in her own home on the brink of midnight—but it is one hour she cannot shake. In Five Years is an unforgettable love story, but it is not the one you’re expecting.


  • Spontaneous, over easy

    By randabearr
    She captured her readers in a way that only you would know. If i knew what my life would be like in 5 years, to have that i would. the book made me question myself about the five years of my life but it also made me quite frenetic. If it helped me get out of a book slump maybe it will help you too.
  • Amazing!!

    By m.kratzat
    Absolutely loved this book! Had my mother in law reading it too and she loved it too!! Gripping story with great characters!
  • Really great read that pulls you in

    By bcuff627
    At first I thought this would be any other romance novel but it is anything but. Brings you in to a really powerful story about friendship and letting go of trying to control your future
  • predictable, but not.

    By casey a. mckee.
    I throughly enjoyed the emotion expressed through the beautiful writing in this book, yet I found it to be a bit short and slightly predictable. The ending was expected, but I think the character development was a bit underdeveloped. Overall, if you’re looking for a quick book to get you out of a reading slump, this is for you.
  • Must read

    By ellieharned
    Couldn’t put it down. Not what you expect
  • Never cried like this

    By Anna.C24
    This isn’t your run of the mill romance. This book features a lawyer and her relationships with her partners and best friend. This book will make you cry, and hug your friends even tighter. Don’t read if you want a happy book, or even a romance story
  • Not that great

    By hay_hay92
    I was excited to read this book because it sounded right up my alley. I was disappointed not only throughout the entire novel but especially at the ending. Not a great plot and not well written either. The main character is self centered and boring.
  • Not what i thought was going to happen

    By MestonEmothy
    Before buying the book and reading the description, in my mind I thought it was going to elaborate on her waking up in a different life - that, that was going to be what the book was about . But i never would have guessed how the actual story plays out & what happens.
  • Bait and switch. Spoiler alert here:

    By korty-korto
    Spoiler alert. This book is about someone dying a painful graphic death from cancer. Not cool. Readers should know in advance what they are choosing to read. Tragic death holds trauma. Do not surprise readers with that. Book description is not accurate. It’s a good book but I didn’t appreciate that.
  • Extremely depressing

    Extremely depressing. It never lets up or turns around.
