Review: The One That Got Away
Married mother of two, Abbey Lahey feels overwhelmed more often than not. She and her husband work hard but he’s struggling in his landscaping business. They’re so busy, they never seem to have time to talk and connect anymore. Abbey dreams about what her life would be like if she’d gone out with the handsome man who worked in the same building she did.
Abbey buys a purse that’s much too expensive and falls on an escalator, hitting her head, when she goes to return it. She wakes up in an alternate life, married to that handsome man, who just happens to be running for Congress, and finds the life with him isn’t as wonderful as she thought it would be.
The One That Got Away by Leigh Himes is a new twist on an old story – experiencing a different life in order to appreciate the one you’re living. As you’d expect, it was pretty predictable. I enjoyed it and thought it was cute but also thought it was just a tad too long. For me it was light, fluffy, and thought provoking, just as it was meant to be.
The audio version of The One That Got Away is narrated by Kristin Kalbli and I thought she did a terrific job. She kept me invested in the story even when it grew repetitious.
