Everything Changes but You by Jennifer Joyce

What They Say:

Ally Richmond is dreading turning thirty and bidding farewell to her youth. And when her husband says he wants to start a family, she begins to panic.

Is this all that life has to offer from now on? Popping out babies and growing old gracefully? She wants a life crammed with glamour and spontaneous adventure, not one full of dirty nappies and night feeds.

When Ally makes a silly birthday wish for a new, exciting life, her wish is granted.

But when Ally is presented with the freedom and opportunities she craves, she soon realises this new life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and that there really is no place like home.

What I Say:

I would like to thank author Jennifer Joyce sending me a copy of her book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When we first meet Ally she is disenchanted with her life, frightened of turning thirty and dreading being tied down with babies like her friends.  On her birthday she makes a silly wish to be like Kelly who works in her office....

Ally gets her wish but in this life she I known as Alana and her life is a nightmare.  Everything is so totally different but Ally is convinced if she finds Gavin she will return to her old life.  If only things were that easy.

Ally is a really likeable character and she sets about trying to sort Alana's life and prove she had changed.

There are 2 hot men in this book with Gavin, Ally's husband who is just as lovely in both of Ally's worlds.  Jason who originally Ally thinks is having an office affair but once she gets to know him in her new life realises he is a nice guy.

I found Jennifer's writing is easy to read and loved reading this story,  Clemetine I loved she was really dizzy for a fairy godmother.  Can't say I have watched Freaky Friday, but have watched Big with Tom Hanks and this is on similar lines to that.

It really shows that you should be careful what you wish for, especially with a Birthday wish as the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
